Tracking

OMNIS™ real time tracking from SGS – keep goods moving and maintain their integrity as they travel through different territories, across countries and between customs controlled areas.

Within today’s challenging and complex trade environment keeping track of goods in transit is often a great concern. Maintaining the integrity of goods is critically important as they travel through different territories, across countries and between customs controlled areas, such as port terminals, bonded warehouses and free zones. Cargo has to be kept moving with minimal interruption and no compromise to integrity.

Our specialized cargo control system, OMNIS, enables us to create customized tracking solutions to meet our clients’ needs. In Ghana, for example, our tracking solution has been operational for three years in collaboration with Ghana Customs. We track all cargo transiting the country from seaports on the Atlantic coast to land-locked countries in the north. In Kenya, we are working with the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to implement a highly sophisticated solution to track containers and vehicles under the Electronic Cargo Transit System (ECTS) program.

OMNIS does not only serve customs administration. It is also valuable to companies and organizations that want to know what is happening with their fleet vehicles or with specific high value assets in transit. The OMNIS solution can be tailored to suit most companies and organizations.
