SARS' new Manifest Processing System (MPS) is to go live on the weekend of 17th June. (See letter from SARS attached). The reporting requirements affect all carriers moving cargo in or out of South Africa irrespective of the method of transport.
Clients who import or export by road must make sure the carriers transporting their cargo are registered and are able to electronically submit manifest details for their loads to South African customs. Failure by transporters to comply with these requirements will delay the cross-border movement of affected cargoes. This includes commerical traffic to or from Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland.
