Written by Maritime First

In its efforts to update its members on current operational procedures in modern freight forwarding practice, the Tin Can chapter of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) held a capacity-building workshop for its members.

The chapter Public Relations Officer, Comrade Onome Joy Monije who represented the Chairman, Comrade Ojo Peter Akintoye, noted that the meeting was timely and overdue, commending members for finding time out of their busy schedules to attend the sensitization programme on operational procedures and challenges.

Monije stated that digitalization is the processes of operation currently experienced globally, whereby operations of freight forwarding, logistics and supply chain have been compacted and made seamless.

She said further that digitalization has made operations very easy to process even from the comfort of one’s room.

According to her, the sensitization programme was meant to find solutions to the administrative bottlenecks for ease of doing business in the port.

The ANLCA image maker averred that the association as a body deemed it necessary to keep its members abreast with the latest development and updates and in turn, upgrade its stakeholders in line with the best attainable practices.

Monije noted that the sensitization programme was highly imperative in order to keep members in business and project them as one big family, leading by example as the giant of all freight forwarding associations.

She added that the training was essential so that members and stakeholders in the Tin Can chapter can be trained to understand the basics of clearing procedures as professionals.

Speaking on the appearance of ideal professional freight forwarders, she said that they must always dress smart, preferably with a clean well-ironed cover dress and a moderate haircut.

On documentation, she advised members to always check the documents, for example, PAAR and bill of lading.

The ANLCA chieftain told members to check for the vessel arrival date, port of discharge, consignee name on the system, TIN number, Rotation number, and Terminal location code.

She was excited with the turnout of members for the sensitization programme in spite of their tight schedule, hoping that subsequent ones will also be well attended.
