8th Supply Chain Forum
May 4, 2012

The 8th CSCR Supply Chain Forum, Dr Hasan Murad School of Management (HSM), UMT, invited Chaudhry Sakhi Muhammad, Senior Instructor of Pakistan Customs, as the guest speaker in a seminar on ‘Role of Custom Model in Supply Chain Management’ on May 04, 2011. The seminar was attended by more than 30 supply chain professionals from different organizations, faculty members of the Dr Hasan Murad School of Management, UMT, and supply chain students.

This session was held to create an awareness of custom models in Pakistan and its role on overall supply chain. The increasing threat of international terrorism and organized cross-border crime requires the enhancement of existing border and frontier controls and effective national and international co-operation between Customs, other law enforcement agencies and business. The greatest challenge for Customs will be to offer facilitated treatment of the vast majority of international cargo movements and passenger traffic, while identifying and dealing with the small percentage that pose a genuine risk to security. Time, quality information and good intelligence are the most critical elements in the application of efficient and effective Customs controls and risk management. These elements have become even more essential in the efforts to increase security along the global supply chain.

All participants took an active part in discussion session and pointed up some major issues regarding customs in Pakistan like smuggling and its negative impact on Pak economy and the steps taken to control it. They also talked about the challenge of counterfiets. The guest speaker gave detailed answers to each query.

At the end of the seminar, Ijaz Yusuf, Director CSCR, summed up what speaker discussed and added his views. He thanked the speaker and participants and presented shield to the speaker Chaudhry Sakhi Muhammad. The seminar ended with light refreshments for the participants who enjoyed themselves and interacted with each other informally.

Earlier, the seminar started after recitation of some verses from the Holy Quran by Muhammad Bilal, student and an active member of OSCC, UMT. Abiha Syed, Research Associate, Center for Supply Chain Research, welcomed all participants and explained the Center's activities for industry and academia.
