Port of Lomé fully digitalizes its procedures, adopts e-payment as exclusive payment method

(Togo First) - The Autonomous Port of Lomé (PAL) authority has completed the digitalization of procedures for clearing goods and stopped cash payments at its windows. 

According to the statement disclosing the information, clearance payments will now be made only through T-Money, Flooz, and bank wiring. In this framework, the PAL has activated, in partnership with banks and mobile operators a dedicated e-payment mechanism. 

Started in 2014 with the opening of the single window for external trade (GUCE), the digitalization of clearance procedures thus becomes fully effective in a context where the country is working to limit physical contact to prevent the spread of the Covid-19. 

The reform makes things easier for economic operators and aligns with the government’s desire to make the Togolese business environment more attractive.
