Foreign freight forwarders (Origin Stations outside of Egypt) are required to register on the CargoX Platform, and - same as the exporters to Egypt - complete the company verification. The new regulation is in effect from 01 November 2021. For up-to-date information on the responsibility of the Freight Forwarders within the ACI process please visit the NAFEZA webpage.
Can a freight forwarder send an ACI envelope on behalf of the exporter?
Yes. With the newly introduced delegations feature on the CargoX Platform, the exporter company can now invite another registered and validated company (freight forwarders, agents, and similar specialists) to become its representative for ACI filings to the Egyptian Customs Authority.
