In a place where businesses and economies rely on supply chain activities to meet consumer needs, time is a vital factor. Reducing dwell time at the main ports and border points especially in a growth market environment, is key to economic enrichment to the land locked countries. There have been donations towards the East African community that were aimed at improving trade logistics in the region with inaccurate assumptions that control agencies like customs agents, port authorities, and infrastructure are responsible for these dwell times at the ports and border points. Cargo dwell time in the East African ports can take up to two weeks, compared to other ports in Latin America, Asia and Europe which takes less than a week table 1.
The introduction of advanced information technology into the freight transportation system has had a significant impact on the system so far. With the steady decrease of technology prices, coupled with an increased awareness among transport and logistics stakeholders of information technology's potential, has encouraged the industry to increase the use of technology.

Different modes of transportation like carriers will have to rely on real time technology that updates location and status of trucks and cargo in the system. For East Africa, I propose e-freight technology. E-freight is the implementation of electronic documentation technology into the transport and logistics field. The technology is aimed at removal of paper documents and the provision of efficient data exchange across the system, that makes the entire transportation cycle transparent and accurate. The reduction of the carbon footprint is a guarantee since paper based processes are not environment friendly and cost effective.
Quality: Since the documents in use currently are paper-based, there is a high risk of tare and deterioration. Security: There can be assured safe storage and access of documents needed for transportation. Using encrypted systems, documents can be transferred and shared with other parties.
And since electronic documents cannot be misplaced, cargo can't be held for long periods because of missing documents. Speed: Electronic documents greatly cut the acceptance and delivery process times.
With the ability of single capture and no need to re-enter the same data, it makes it faster for the stakeholders to process the data even before the cargo leaves for its destination which helps reduce industry cycle time. Supply Chain Visibility: Electronic documents can be tracked online. Regulatory advantage: With information technology services in use, regional communities can build accustom e-freight process around the current technology standards.
Cost effectiveness: Cargo transport document processing can be costly over time, and by migrating to a paperless system can help cut stationary costs, manpower costs and even customs penalties due to incorrect data submission. An e-freight location is a place where cargo goods are declared and released for export or import. For at least commercial invoices and packing lists do not have to be original to support the declaration of the cargo goods. If the above criteria is met, then it is possible to have an end-to-end paperless system. Otherwise, it cannot be a full e-freight location but can still offer paperless documentation of some documents like the air waybill.
DHL Express Waybill. In addition to the transport documents mentioned in step 2, invoice and packing lists that are accompanied by special Air Cargo documents such as CITES or Certificates of Origin that are used at destination by the freight forwarder to complete the Customs declarations and other purposes. This step enables the freight forwarder of origin to communicate these commercial documents with to the freight forwarder at destination. With contributions by: A. Gerbrands, G. Zegwaard, G.

The real significance of the cargo cults as a response to the invasion of an alien, powerful civilisation is revealed in this study by Dr. Friedrich Steinbauer. To many Melanesians, the cargo brought by Europeans was an essential part of Salvation as preached by missionaries; there was an equating of Christianity with material goods.
