New imports tool to cut clearance time by 60pc


  • The iCMS sea module which will replace the Simba system — that the Kenya Revenue Authority has been using for over a decade now to clear goods — is projected to reduce cargo clearance time by more than 60 percent at the Port of Mombasa.
  • Importers will be required to use the new system to clear cargo before arrival at the port to increase efficiency and boost revenue collection.
  • The user technicalities which had been flagged, have already been addressed and most players trained on how to deal with issues that may emerge with KRA providing hotlines to support those in difficulties.
