Please be advised that effective immediately, the customs procedures for export of self-propelled vehicles from the Port of New York/New Jersey have changed.
As per the released Informational Pipeline No. 16-004-NWK, Revised Procedures for Exporting Self-Propelled Vehicles document, the U.S. Customs Border Protection (CBP) will now require a stamped release for export vehicles before being loaded to a vessel. The mandatory requirement outlines that both carriers and the terminal will not be authorized to load vehicles for export without such a stamped release.
The CBP will require all stamped release documents to be presented to the steamship line prior to loading vehicles for export. This compliance is mandatory effective immediately.
You may find more information about this process on the CBP website. Revised Procedures for Exporting Self-Propelled Vehicles document can be found here.
