A recent meeting by Kenya Association of International Cargo Coordinators (KAICC) at Boma Inn, Nairobi, saw most members push for what would make their business boom.
The KAICC, whose major objective is to promote legitimate trade of cargo consolidation, encourage professionalism, collaborate with stakeholders and propose appropriate policy guidelines for the industry, has continued to engage stakeholders like the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) and Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to facilitate trade and support government fight against substandard, counterfeit and illicit trade. It was registered in 2017 and is currently being managed by an executive committee that consists of a chairperson, vice-chairperson, treasurer and secretary.
In May, President Uhuru Kenyatta directed the speedy clearance of cargo and facilitation of trade. It is in line with this executive directive that KAICC is spearheading efforts to streamline the industry and improve service delivery to its customers.
