CrimsonLogic and Bahrain Customs Affairs signed a contract to implement OFOQ2, the single window for trade system.

OFOQ2 is an advanced e-portal to manage various government procedures, incorporating Blockchain technologies to promote the accuracy of digital customs transactions and protect the confidentiality of information with minimum human interference.

The implementation is a move in line with the Kingdom of Bahrain’s strategy, to focus on the logistic services sector, as part of the priorities and programmes of the Economic Recovery Plan.

OFOQ2 includes related services for stakeholders of ships, cargo and customs clearance agents, along with products' owners. OFOQ2 includes many specialised programmes, such as the customs value, Customs Exemption System, Customs Restrictions System and Risks System that meet the latest successful international standards.

The e-portal aims to achieve electronic integration and exchange of data between e-systems within the customs circle. OFOQ2 regulates appointment procedures, reduces paperwork between the Customs Affairs and operating companies and uses the best smart solutions and artificial intelligence apps. Furthermore, it diversifies the service providing methods through mobile phones, Kiosks, Blockchain and many other privileges that serve all the system's beneficiaries.
