Association kicks against CRFFN operating fee

The National Council of Managing Directors of
Licensed Customs Agents (NCMDLCA) has kicked against the collection of
operating fee by the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in
Nigeria (CRFFN).

The association’s Vice-President, Uchu Block said in
Lagos that the body would not be a part of any fee-paying arrangement made by
the CRFFN.
“We are not accepting to be a part of this because
there is no council in place,” he said.
The association urged the Nigerian Shippers Council
(NSC) to intervene in the matter and to also restrain the CRFFN from going
ahead with its plan to collect the fee.
He said that the proposed fee included N2,000 for a
40ft container; N1,000 for a 20′ foot container and N1,000 for 20′foot truck;
N2,000 for a 40′foot truck.
He said for any car and jeep cleared, the proposed
CRFFN fee should be pegged at N500.
CRFFN had earlier in a public notice said that it
would begin the collection of the fee from May 11, 2015.
It stated that the fee was not supposed to affect
the cost of cargo clearance at the ports and that the freight forwarding
associations were duly informed.
Block, however, said that his association only came
across the information in the media.
