The Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi had on the occasion said Freight Forwarders who fail to play by the rules of the game will find themselves out of business.
Amaechi urged the leadership of the Council to begin full implementation of the Act, adding that this was because President Muhammadu Buhari was a man of Rule of Law.
The President; the Minister said would want all agencies under him begin operation.
