CBP reminds the trade of “zero tolerance” for gateouts



The US Customs Office of Field Operations for the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport has issued the public bulletin to remind the trade that CBP “maintains a Zero Tolerance policy regarding gateout containers/cargo.”

The agency will assess civil monetary penalties against all culpable parties for each gateout incident, defined as “allowing a container/cargo that has been targeted by CBP for terrorism or enforcement inspection to be released without authorization from CBP.”
