Kudumba Investments Lda
All around the world and in particular within Global Supply chain, the requirement for vehicle, cargo and container inspections have taken a dramatic upswing. This is mainly due to breakthroughs in technology coupled with legislative and security requirements internationally. The World Trade Organisation (WTO), The World Customs Organisation (WCO), US, EU and the African Union have all recognised that security in the supply chain is of vital importance and is a National Interest for member states.
Kudumba provides a full range of cargo and baggage screening services; our service provides a turnkey solution with no capital outlay on behalf of government. Our cargo inspection systems utilise the latest X-Ray technology, our baggage screening and security service use a wide range of technology systems from the market leaders in these fields.
Kudumba will provide an internationally recognized level of security by providing improved automated information capture, automated data transfer combined with non intrusive techniques that customs can employ in the screening of both inbound and outbound shipments.
The Kudumba services compliment and enhance the Government customs facilitation process thereby increasing security and increasing revenue generation capabilities. Kudumba provides the services of Non Intrusive Inspection and visualisation technology to the government of Mozambique and across the region.
One of the unique elements of our service is the centralised control centres that we put in place; these allow all of the sites within the country at all of the frontier crossings to be monitored and controlled via a centralised facility. This will give command and control capabilities over customs facilitation processes on the ground in the localised frontier crossing previously not available, thereby achieving better and faster decisions. The importance of this is that it provides customs officers with situational awareness - instant information about the location and status of shipments entering or exiting a countries sovereign territory. All of which is a necessary component of achieving superiority in the fight against smuggling, tax evasion and terrorism. The Customs officials can coordinate easily and conduct operations with the involvement of other law enforcement agencies such as the police and intelligence services, seamlessly and together enabling comprehensive law enforcement.
Our service comes complete with installation, operation, maintenance and decommissioning;
a "Cradle to Graveï¿½ï¿½? operation to suit your needs.
Its services offered are not only the technology, but fully trained crews and support services. Uniquely, all services are provided locally, with local nationals being the mainstay of the operator resources.
The Kudumba solution is currently under contract to the Mozambique customs authority to offer inspection services at the Land, Sea and Airports of entry/exit to the country. In addition to the large cargo scanning equipments we can also provide 2nd and 3rd lines of inspection with the following technologies and solutions:
X-Ray systems for cargo, baggage and pallets

Kudumba Training Centre Plan
The core requirement for the Kudumba training centre is to ensure that all
Kudumba staff and all external agencies working with Kudumba, are trained to
the highest level so that they can perform their duties to the best of their
ability. This training will always have priority in the Kudumba training centre
but with the training hours available in a year there will always be available
time for hire of Kudumba facilities. These facilities will be available during
normal working hours when no Kudumba training is running and of "after
hoursï¿½ï¿½? (1700 - 2100) or Saturday and Sunday, during most times of
the year. The after hours training is ideal for corporate clients who can not
afford to offer training time during the working day.
