“The transporting goods containers from Karachi ports to Afghanistan are also using such devices and they (US) are monitoring every movement of the trucks from Karachi to Afghanistan,” Mr Yusuf informed Pakistan Today. He said: “All US companies importing goods for US Army in Afghanistan were using tracking system in Pakistan to protect their goods and it is not easy for drivers of the trucks or the thefts to open the container in the way,” he added.
