CES Changes in Port of New York/Newark

CBP Field Operations in New York recently issued an Informational Pipeline Message concerning changes to the Port of New York/Newark’s Centralized Examination Station (CES) procedures. In an effort to reduce delays in the examination process and improve overall service and efficiency, CBP has selected four new CES facilities at which cargo examinations may be performed. Effective January 9, 2012, those facilities will be:

Comprehensive CES *
East Coast Warehouse
1130-50 Polaris St.
Port Elizabeth, NJ

New York Container Terminal CES *
240 Western Ave.
Staten Island, NY

H&M International Transportation
700 Belleville Turnpike
Kearny, NJ

SalSon Logistics, Inc.
888 Doremus Ave.
Newark, NJ

* These facilities are designated as a Comprehensive CES, meaning they have the capability to present cargo to CBP for A-TCET/NII, Trade Compliance and Agriculture examinations

All importers should ensure their respective ocean carriers have made the appropriate CES selections and notified CBP of these arrangements. Importers should also be aware of all associated fees and services included in the examination process for each CES, in accordance with Appendix B. All cargo designated for an enforcement examination must be moved to a CES within one day of receipt of the transfer authorization from CBP. All parties involved, including importers and customs brokers, must take immediate measures to ensure that the transfer is not delayed pending guarantees of carrier, terminal or examination charges.
