KARACHI: Clearing agents have been asked to ensure their presence during the ANF examination.
The presence of nominated clearing agent is a mandatory requirement during the execution of the activity.
A letter written to Karachi Customs Agents Association (KCAA) President Qamar Alam by DP World said it is continuously receiving complaints from the ANF authorities that most of the clearing agents are frequently coming late for processing of their shipments. This results in delays and the situation is having an impact on the entire ANF/DEC examination cycle ensuing unnecessary delay in the inspection process due to which the Qasim International Container Terminal is encountering pendency/delays in handling and processing ANF shipments in particular.
The letter asks the association to instruct all customers and members to ensure that their nominated clearing agent should timely attend the cargo for the activity without any delay or failure.
