“These policies of review of fees and charges need consultation, which are on the high side, moving interest more to revenue collection.
“The CBFCF looks after the interest of its members that are involved with the clearing of goods through customs, quarantine, health and other border agencies barriers for importers and exporters.
“The prime objective of the CBFCA is to represent member’s interests in the trade logistic service industry and to promote the professional development of its members.
