Dar es Salaam Shipping Lines waive container deposit fees

Sept 23, 2016: Local clearing agents in Rwanda have welcomed the decision by shipping lines at Dar es Salaam port to waive container deposit fees. Maersk and Safmarine shipping lines recently agreed to give a waiver on container cash deposit to members of the Rwanda Freight Forwarders Association to reduce the cost of doing business. The scheme will first be rolled out as a pilot phase before it can be fully adopted. The development follows bilateral talks held last month between Rwanda and Tanzania to address the current constraints affecting traders at the port, including the question of cash deposits. Fred Seka, the chairperson, Rwanda Freight Forwarders Association (ADR), said both parties agreed to use an insurance guarantee covered by UAP Insurance to facilitate ease of doing business at the port.
