The Bureau of Customs’ (BOC) Electronic Tracking of Containerized Cargo (E-TRACC) System now covers import containers from the Port of Manila (POM), Batangas port, and Manila International Container Port (MICP) destined for other islands and that may be classified as inter-island shipments.
Assessment and Operations Coordinating Group (AOCG) Memo 355-2021, which took effect on July 6, said destination warehouses can be in economic zones located in Palawan, Cebu, Davao, General Santos City, Zamboanga Del Norte, Misamis Oriental, and other islands.
The order is in compliance with Customs Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 04-2020, which established the E-TRACC, a web-based system launched by BOC last year to track inland movement of containerized cargoes during transit and transfer to other customs territories and facilities.
