dc.description.abstractStakeholders in cross-border logistics and trade corridors have always been concerned about ways of improving operational efficiency. Cargo owners and cargo forwarders have been particularly concerned with long delays in the processing and clearing of cargo at border-posts. It is reasonably suspected that the delays are due to a combination of a lack of optimum systems' configurations and the inefficient human-dependent operations, which makes the operations prone to corruption. This paper presents the findings of a study, which is being conducted to determine the sources of the inefficiencies and then suggest possible solution based, largely, on RFID technology. The procedure and preliminary findings are presenteden_US
