With the advent of AAICLAS, the vision and guidelines contained in the AFS policy of MoCA by creation of AFS, near AAI managed airports in the country, needs to be carried. Once the facility is established, AAICLAS would be in a better position to bridge the gaps between the seamless coordination among all its stakeholders such as airlines, consol agent, customs brokers, etc. which is a must for the success of AFS. The AFS helped reduce congestion at the airports, by permitting transfer of cargo to designated freight Stations — AFS or ICDs — through bonded trucking operations. The key reasons for failing of the AFS system would be a slack in procedures for off-airport clearance facilities, no legalisation for creation and operation of AFS and an overall lack of participation by the authorities. Initiatives which have been implemented by the incumbent Union Government have given a major thrust and fillip to the Indian export industry. To make the operation of AFSs successful, the current systems, procedures and formalities should be streamlined suitably to eliminate the existing bottlenecks and delays.
