06, May 2016

The 1500 small and medium clearing and forwarding firms in Kenya have threatened to move to court to challenge the introduction of a Uganda-based new electronic system of clearing motor vehicles and steel that has denied them transit business at the port of Mombasa for the last four weeks.Under the umbrella of the Kenya International Freight and Warehousing Association-KIFWA, representatives said implementation of the new system under the single customs territory threatens to render 40,000 Kenyan agents redundant as they cannot clear Ugandan cargo. The agents want the entire clearing and forwarding industry in Kenya brought on board in terms of quality training and uninterrupted access to the Uganda-based and controlled clearance system to ensure a level ground for all users across the region.
