In this paper, an RFID based Electronic Cargo Tracking System (ECTS) for tracking transit container goods in Kenya is discussed. The ECTS system was designed to address the problem of diversion and smuggling of transit goods destined for neighboring countries in East Africa into the Kenyan market. These goods are imported through the port of Mombasa and transported by road or railway through Kenya to exit stations at the border. However, some of these goods are falsely declared as transit with… CONTINUE READING
