ABOLISHED TARIFF IN THE MARITIME TRANSPORT SECTOR

The Tanzania Shipping Agencies Corporation (TASAC), established under Section 4 of the Tanzania Shipping Agencies Act No. 14 of 2017, is mandated through Section 12(1)(d) of the Act to regulate rates and charges in the maritime transport sector.

With respect to the above mandate, TASAC has observed tendencies of some regulated service providers in the maritime transport sector to impose tariff without prior approval of the Corporation, contrary to the requirements of the law. There are cases where service providers quote incorrect names of approved tariff to the extent of confusing customers.

All regulated service providers are hereby directed to refrain from applying non-approved tariff. Stern regulatory measures, including suspension or revocation of licence, will be taken against any regulated service provider proven to violate approved tariff.

Consumers of regulated services are urged to report to TASAC in case they are required to pay unapproved tariff in the maritime transport sector.Notably, consumers and stakeholders should be aware that the following tariff items have been abolished:
