2. The national single window for trade facilitation — may come under pressure when the Malaysian Royal Customs Department switches to a new framework called uCustoms. DNeX’s national single window contract with Customs was recently extended to September 2018.
The national single window is a trade facilitation system that allows exporters and importers to conduct all necessary Customs clearance processes through an online portal. DNeX, which developed the system some years ago, is the only company in the country that provides it. But under uCustoms, it will be one of two service providers involved in the trade facilitation process. (Link: Dagang NeXchange bags another high-margin job)
