TRANSIT GOODS LICENSE 2018 EXTENDED TO MARCH 4th 2019

In recent times, the KTA Secretariat has been pushing for the extension of the use of Transit Goods License 2018 as there was an unforeseen delay in the issuance of the 2019 License.

This led to communication by the Secretariat to Kenya Revenue Authority on the same in January which extended the use of the 2018 License up until 2nd February, and when it spilled over to February the same had to be made with KRA issuing a notice, of this being the last extension up until 4th March.

This allowed time for KTA Members to obtain Transit Good Licenses for 2019, the communication with Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has trickled to the other Authorities: Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA) and Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA).

LOGISTICS: MOVING TO ENHANCE TRUCK TURN AROUND

In the most efficient trade corridors, the average KMs/truck/year is between 120,000 to 150,000

Accordingly to a baseline study recently conducted by KTA to analyse operational models and cost structures, transporters are covering an average distance of 96,240 kilometres in a year far below the Port Charter target of 120,000 kilometres per truck per annum. The average mileage per truck indicator, commonly known as Kms/truck/year, is a measure of efficiency of trade corridors, productivity of road freight transport and an important determinant of freight rates.

NAIROBI, Kenya, 13th September 2016 Kenya Transporters Association (KTA) and TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) have today signed a partnership agreement to enhance quality and efficiency of road freight transport in Kenya. 

According to an impact assessment study of the Northern Corridor, poor truck turn-around has been attributed to poor cargo off-take and delivery infrastructure, delays by transporters to pick cargo after Port release, delays within transporters facilities, and high frequency of stoppages along the Northern Corridor by drivers. On average, Kenyan trucks are presently doing 60,000 - 96,000 KMs/truck/year driving transport costs to an estimated 30% of the value of traded goods. In the most efficient trade corridors, the average KMs/truck/year is between 120,000 to 150,000 translating into significantly affordable transport and logistics costs of up to an average 4% of the value of traded goods.
