Cotecna Togo launches an electronic tracking system (SSE)

Press Release
Togo, 14 December, 2010

November 26, 2010, Cotecna, one of the world's leading trade inspection, security and certification companies, signed a contract with the Togolese Ministry for the Economy and Finance for the tracking of declared goods in transit.

Cotecna was commissioned to set up and manage a remote tracking system for land transport across the national territory using an electronic tracking system based on GPS/GSM/GPRS mobile tags.

The five-year contract, known as SSE, will be launched on June 1, 2011 and covers goods in transit throughout the Togolese territory.

Cotecna's partnership with the government of Togo stretches back to an Import Verification Program in 1995. This program has been constantly updated to keep up with the modernization of Togolese Customs, and in 2003 saw the installation of a first scanner combined with a computerized risk management system, CRMS®. In 2006, the inspection program evolved to a Destination Inspection program in order to speed up Customs clearance. In November 2009, Cotecna unveiled a new Gantry HCV 6034 6MeV scanner in Lomé's port. This powerful, last-generation scanner can distinguish between organic and inorganic matter and detects radioactive substances.

This new service for Togo customs is Cotecna's second contract of this kind; a first was signed with Senegal in March 2008.
