The World Bank estimates that every one-day delay in cargo clearance reduces import and export volumes by about one percent. In ASEAN it takes more than 20 days on average to import or export goods.

The ASEAN Single Window will help expedite cargo clearance and contribute to a more integrated ASEAN Economic Community.
