For up-to-date information on the responsibility of the Freight Forwarders within the ACI process please visit the NAFEZA webpage.
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.
Per our information, foreign (origin) freight forwarders do not need to send any document over the CargoX Platform. They just need to supply the BL issued by them to their customers - the exporters - and it is the duty of the exporter to send a COPY of this bill of lading, along with other required documents, to the Egyptian customs / NAFEZA platform over the CargoX Platform within the ACI filing.
To complete registration and verification on the CargoX, kindly follow instructions at https://help.cargox.digital/en/user-manual/managing-company-details/company-verification/
While Egyptian freight forwarders (Agents in Egypt) are required to register only on the NAFEZA, they are always welcome to register their free CargoX account as well.
Further instructions about the needed documents and process itself, can be found on the official NAFEZA website, on the following link: https://www.nafeza.gov.eg/en/download-center/156 - in a document titled: Shipping Lines/Agents Questions and Answers- ACI, in section 2.
