Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous island of the United Republic of Tanzania in East Africa. Renowned for its production of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper, the island together with Tanzania’s Mafia Island, are often referred to as the Spice Islands.
The island has a thriving sea transport network, with both ships and private speed boats serving the port. The port is controlled by the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar and has its own port authority and customs, which is unique with regards to agency representation.
The State Agency M/s Shipping Corporation of Zanzibar, is the sole agent for all vessels calling at the Port of Zanzibar, handling vessel inward and outward clearances and cargo documentation for imports and exports. All other agency representation by private operators, is regarded as protective duties.
Every principal that operates at Zanzibar, is obliged to have a protective agent, as state agents who handle all vessels, may not be impartial or may not respond effectively to the particular needs of a principal.
