In June 2024, the license of the Customs Terminal in Ferizaj will expire. Although the terminal has applied for re-licensing in time, the Commission for reviewing and evaluating the request has not yet gone to this Terminal and there is still no response. In the complaint of the "Fitorja" company, it is stated that if the Terminal is closed, the transport companies from Serbia and other countries will benefit, which make up the majority of land transport operating in Kosovo with 95 percent.

The complaint of the "Fitorja" company, the petitions and full letters of the Customs Agents and businesses have been addressed to Prime Minister Albin Kurti, but the Government of Kosovo has not responded to KosovaPress.

About the negligence of the Ministry of Environment, Spatial Planning and Infrastructure (MESPI) for not re-licensing the Customs Terminal "Fitorja" in Ferizaj, talks Minister Aliu

For this, the Minister of Environment, Spatial Planning and Infrastructure, Liburn Aliu, has declared for KosovaPress, who says that this matter remains within the relevant Commission, and adds that it will be dealt with procedurally like other cases.

Aliu emphasizes that the claims by the company and those of the Municipality of Ferizaj will be treated quite seriously in the ministry he leads, as well as in the Ministry of Finance.

Although the terminal has applied for re-licensing on time, the commission for review and evaluation of the request has not yet gone to this Terminal and therefore there is no response. In the complaint of the "Fitorja" company, it is stated that if the Terminal is closed, the transport companies from Serbia and other countries will benefit, which make up the majority of land transport operating in Kosovo with 95%. However, for this, Aliu says that there should be actions that promote the economic development of the country, and not harmful ones.

Commenting on the complaint of the "Fitorja" company, in which it is stated that in the event of the closure of this Terminal, the transport companies from Serbia will benefit, Aliu says that this is not in the best interest of the country.

Faced with this situation, the company "Fitorja" based in Ferizaj, operator licensed as a freight terminal, has addressed a complaint to the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Mr. Albin Kurti, asking the government to extend his operating license as he meets all the conditions and the closing of the terminal will cause damage to all parties.

The company "Fitorja LLC" with headquarters in Ferizaj, is a licensed operator as a goods terminal that has been operating for more than 10 years in this sector and as such, the cooperation with Customs, Customs Agents, businesses and other parties has been very correct having no complaints all these years.

Further in this complaint, the "Fitorja" company asks the government to take these facts into account before making a decision.

For this issue, close to 300 businesses and about 30 customs agents who operate at the Ferizaj Terminal have signed two petitions addressed to the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, where they express their concern and dissatisfaction regarding the non-renewal of the terminal's license in Ferizaj.

In the petition signed by customs agents, it is stated, among other things that if the license to operate the customs terminal is not renewed many customs agencies will be closed and many workers will be without a job.
