Hundreds of containers stucked at Dar es Salaam Port

A dispute over transit goods has left more than 300 containers stranded at Dar es Salaam Port causing congestion and inconvenience, The Citizen established on Monday, 10/01/2018.

The 327 containers containing sugar, rice and cooking oil are currently being held at the port's container terminal because the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) is concerned that the consignments, destined for the Democratic Republic of Congo, could be diverted to the local market.

The goods have been held at the port for about four weeks now after importers failed to give assurance to TRA that the goods are on transit.
