About us

Who we are

Mauritius Network Services Limited was incorporated in 1994 on a public private partnership model and has evolved over the years to be a trusted partner to Government, Businesses and Citizens for trade and business facilitation.

MNS was set-up with a clear mission to facilitate international trade procedures by developing and operating trade facilitation information systems in line with guidelines established by UNECE, World Customs Organisation, and other international standards.

This mandate was carried out by pioneering the implementation of the TradeNet Single Window system and undertaking at the same time the bold initiative to develop a Customs Management System (CMS). Subsequently, the services of MNS were requested to implement and operate the TradeLink Single Window which enables traders to submit sensitive import-export permits and clearance trade data to eleven other government agencies (OGAs) for approval.

The implementation of the CMS in conjunction with TradeNet has significantly reduced time for international trade, lowered trade transaction costs, eliminated duplication of information capture by different agencies, ushered in a paperless environment, and improved transparency of procedures.
The well-known UN/CEFACT Recommendation No. 33 on National Single Window – 2005 refers to our TradeNet system as an example of Single Window. In addition, the World Bank Ease of Doing Business Report 2020 ranks Mauritius 13th globally, and 1st in Africa among 190 countries.

Over the years, MNS was called upon to develop other projects to further improve the business environment in Mauritius through digitization of a number of key government processes.

These include the Company and Business Registration Information System ( ‘CBRIS’), the eCourier System, the Sanitary and Phytosanitary System and the Electronic Tax Refund System.
