Puerto Rico rewrites port scanning rules

See also

Several Jacksonville-based shipping companies are finding that the Port Authority of Puerto Rico has set a new scanning and inspection regulation for all inbound cargo to the island.

This new regulation is set to be effective in early 2011.

A SeaStar Line spokesman said based on the regulation, 100 percent of all inbound cargo will be scanned and charges will be applied for every inbound container. It’s possible that this new regulation will delay cargo availability and it will add an inspection fee to your container shipments.

A public hearing concerning the new regulation will be held at 10 a.m. on January 21 at Frontier Pier in San Juan.
