Improve, clearing agents told

BOLLORE Logistics has called for enhanced professionalism among the clearing agents as they aspire to declare the right value to customs at border posts.
Managing Director, Olivier Terra, said Bollore Logistics supported customs to successfully promote the Customs Accredited Clients Programme where complaint operators were granted preferential release of shipments.
Mr Terra said his company assisted customs in their requirements to preregister imports which essentially required goods to be declared before they arrived at the border.
This, he said, was done in an effort to ease congestion at border posts.
He was speaking at the second round of donations by French companies to Government in containing the Covid-19 pandemic which was organised by the French Zambian Chamber of Commerce.
The companies which made donations included Bollore Transport and Logistics Zambia, Africa Greenco, Zamastone Quarries and Aggregates, and Saro Agro Industrial.
Mr Terra said his company was working with Government in finding ways to reduce border congestion, facilitate trade and boost the country’s revenues through more efficient border crossings and revenue collections.
