THE Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) hopes to finalise revisions to the freight forwarding rules for seaborne cargo this year.
“The DTI is committed to replace and streamline the guidelines on sea freight forwarding and make it faster and easier for new and renewing freight forwarders applicants in securing accreditation,” said the Minister.

The revisons are also expected to fast-track the accreditation process for freight forwarders by reducing the processing time to one day from three.

The Minister said that the processing time could be further reduced once the Harmonized Online Freight Forwarding Accreditation (HOFFA) with the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) is created.

The new system aims to create a unified application form and a single digital system for the accreditation of sea and air freight forwarders.
