Government abolishes maritime surcharges

Category: Policy and Politics Leave a comment A+ / A-

The government has said it will not tolerate any arbitrary actions, proliferation of changes or surcharges as well as any unfair or restrictive trading practices by maritime service providers or shipping lines.

These actions, PS in the Ministry of Transport, Nduva Muli, said, result in high costs of doing business and an non-condusive trading environment.

The high costs have lowered the country’s competitiveness in terms of exports to international markets and contributed to low affordability of import commodities.

“It is therefore imperative that we strengthen our regulatory space to ensure that we bring sanity and order into the maritime sector for enhanced socio-economic benefits for all stakeholders,” he said.
