KCAA wants demurrage waived

KARACHI: Karachi Customs Agents Association (KCAA) General Secretary Faisal Mushtaq has said that since the announcement of waiver of demurrage charges by the Ministry of Ports and Shipping on account of the strike called by transporters, no proper communication to private terminal operators ie PICT, KICT and QICT has been made and not a single waiver has been allowed.

As the situation at PICT is getting worst day by day and beyond the control, a delegation of KCAA met PICT Chief Executive Capt Zafar Awan and in the result of the said meeting, PICT has allowed waiver of 15 per cent demurrage for the deliveries which are made prior to December 9 (Monday) by 7:00am, he said, adding that further, truck which will enter before 12:00am, the demurrage of next day will not be charged.

Faisal Mushtaq has requested the members to take out their deliveries and take advantage of this waiver. He further reiterated that the waiver of demurrage made by the Ministry of Ports and Shipping should be implemented in its true spirit as matter of fact more than 80 per cent of cargo belongs to private terminal ie KICT, PICT and QICT.
