This is to keep you informed that the certain Associations of Freight Forwarders (CEYFFA) has instructed its members to charge US$ 100 per delivery order fee with effect from 1st of March 2017. This is a total violation of the Director General of Merchant Shipping’s agreement with the trade.
We have informed Director General of Merchant Shipping who is the sole authority in deciding such cost structure and the act of this association is considered anti-competitive practices, price fixing and violating the said guidelines issued by the DGMS.
In the vent if you have come across this type of situation or if you are debited such increased charges please lodge an official complaint to the Director General of Merchant Shipping with a copy to the Secretariat, Sri Lanka Shippers’ Council
