The information was made public on 25 July 2022 through a press release and follows the decision of the Council of Ministers on 06 July 2022.

The project reinforces the existing partnership since 2018 between Webb Fontaine and the Beninese government, and reaffirms the country's ambition to become one of the most technologically advanced trading environments in the region.

The project moves towards a fully integrated approach to trade operations, interconnecting all major trade platforms such as the single window, the port community system, the electronic cargo tracking solution, and now, via Customs Webb, the customs system.

It also integrates a community port system, customs clearance operations, and finally the electronic payment of all fees related to trade transactions.
