dc.description.abstract The research materials was gathered by the writer over a period of four months between April and July 1981.The style of the paper is essentially descriptive and the writer has taken great pains in endeavor to condense in one comprehensive document the functions of an industry which important as it is ,has hitherto lacked reference material in one piece for guidance of those venturing into clearing and forwarding activity as a means of livelihood and also for those in business enterprise who may like to be assured that they are getting the best deal for service they are paying for . The writer has for many years been associated with clearing and forwarding activity during which period various pertinent short falls have been noticed .One of these is lack of adequate reference material to give guidance for the procedures necessary in the clearing and forwarding enterprise.Presently scattered information has to be gathered from various sources ,especially the Customs Management Act and Regulations ,Ports Authority Act,Port Tariff Book ,Tariff Act, IATA Regulations, the Insurance Laws etc .as well as industry experience. The big clearing houses have found it necessary to prepare their own manuals for guidance of staff in daily operation. But so far it is difficult to obtain a reference book in clearing and forwarding functions in one piece. This paper does not claim legal competence in the process described .It is meant to give guidance information only .Therefore all sections connected with clearing and forwarding activities have been touched upon. For specific detailed information the reader is referred to specific documents covering that area. For example a good understanding of the provisions of the Customs and Excise Act will enlighten the clearing operator on the reasons why the customs department insist on certain requirements for entry of goods. The port procedure would also not appear so mysterious to operators connected with the port work. I have endeavored to describe in simple language pertinent procedures and practices which commonly pertain to the clearing and forwarding industry in this country. No work of this nature can manage can manage to include every minute detail found in a day to day work practice. It is only intended to throw light on the essential practices of the industry instead of groping aimlessly in the dark. It is my fervent hope that the information contained on this paper will be useful to the clearing and forwading operators and help them in asserting their role in an industry which is of vital importance in both domestic and international trade. The writer will feel to have achieved a purpose if this information can reach those who may need it in their effort of nation building. en_US
