Containers’ grounding: PICT, KICT fail to resolve issues

KARACHI: The importers and traders have been facing mismanagement and delaying tactics by administration of Pakistan International Containers Terminal (PICT) and Karachi International Containers Terminal (KICT) in grounding of containers.
“Pakistan Customs’ officials use delaying tactics and give lame excuses like shortage of labour and space while grounding containers for examination” Shujaat Ahmed an importer informed Customs Today.
Kamran Akhtar, another importer, told that the consignee have to face thousands of rupees loss because of detention of container, even traders fully cooperate with officials of Pakistan Customs.
He said that most of stuck-up consignments having items related with upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr and delay in clearance will be devastating for traders.
Pakistan Customs authorities assured traders that they will leave no stone un turned to solve the problems faced by importers. “officers found in causing deliberate delay in examination would be punished” they maintained.
