Successful Enhancement of Customs Revenues in El Salvador

See how Cotecna helped the Customs of El Salvador grow their customs revenue collection through the implementation of a multi-border non-instrusive scanning system.

Cotecna Inspection S.A. congratulates the Ministry of Finance and the Customs of El Salvador for the significant increase in Customs Revenue collection in La Hachadura and El Amatillo border posts.

The additional USD 4.6 million collected between the 1st of December 2016 and the 10th of January 2017 are the direct result of the General Plan implemented by the Ministry of Finance in December 2016 which includes a substantial increase of scanner inspections, resulting in more detections and better declarations.

Cotecna signed a 10-year concession contract with the Ministry of Finance of El Salvador to finance, supply, install, operate and maintain an integrated multi-border system based on non-intrusive inspection technologies.
