KUALA LUMPUR: Dagang Nexchange Bhd’s (DNeX) appointment as the exclusive operator of National Single Window (NSW) for Trade Facilitation -- which involves facilitating Customs-related electronic transactions and duty payments -- has been extended for another two years.

In a filing with the stock exchange, the e-commerce services provider said its wholly-owned subsidiary Dagang Net Technologies Sdn Bhd had on Tuesday accepted the award of contract extension by the Government from Sept 25, 2016 until Sept 24, 2018.

Dagang Net was appointed by the Government to develop, manage and operate the NSW for Trade Facilitation system for five years from Sept 25, 2009. In April 2014 the contract was extended for two years from Sept 25, 2014, to Sept 24, 2016.

The service charge imposed again remains unchanged: 75 sen per kilobyte for government agencies and 80 sen per kilobyte for the private sector.

Last year Dagang Net was appointed by the Customs Department as the uCustoms service provider. uCustoms, to be completed in phases until 2017, is a fully integrated solution that delivers Single window for goods clearance.
