Research has shown that Logistics accounts for over 30 percent of the overall cost of doing business for manufacturers and product merchants. The Logistics cost if not very well managed can overrun other costs thereby driving the cost of doing business extremely high. It is therefore the worry of every Importer/Exporter when the logistics cost becomes uncertain and unpredictable.
At Buyers Logistics Limited we have mapped and analyzed all the components and aspects which contribute to the Logistics cost with an intention of understanding critically each component and aspect in relation to its contribution to the logistics cost.
Our analysis revealed that logistics cost is majorly contributed by the following main components,
- Freight costs (Both Destination and Local)
- Handling Cost (Both Destination and Local)
- Storage charges and Demurrage charges
- Taxes and other Government Levies
- Other related Clearance charges (Agency Fees, documentation fees, IDF Fees)
We at Buyers Logistics Limited upon evaluating and understanding have designed and developed solutions that ensure our clients incur only the logistics cost that are mandatory and payable in relation to their shipments by employing the following strategies.
Freight Costs (Both Destination and Local)
We have partnered with agents and transporters across the globe with whom we have negotiated the most competitive freight rates for clients who import/export their shipment using Inco terms EX WORKS, FOB and DDP. We highly recommend clients to utilize these incoterms so that they can enjoy competitive rates and save up 30% of freight costs.
Handling costs (Both Destination and Local)
Since these costs are standard and mandatory we provide our with the clients exact cost expected to be paid way before their shipments arrive or are exported to enable them budget, plan and prepare payments in time to avoid delays which may occasion storage and demurrage charges.
Storage and Demurrage charges
We work around the clock to ensure our clients shipments are cleared within the required 4 days allowed by KPA and 2 days as required by KAA for air shipments. Thus ensuring our clients do not incur both storage and demurrage charges.
Taxes and other Government levies

Additionally, we have ensured our staff and directors are well trained on tax matters to avoid issues of mis-declarations which may raise disputes with KRA and other government agencies.
Other related Clearance charges (Agency Fees, documentation fees, IDF Fees)
