Port of LA/LB: outbound cargo holds & requests for booking reports



US Customs’ Outbound Enforcement Team at the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport reminds exporters that:

1)  it will continue its practice of notifying carriers and terminal operators via email of outbound cargo hold requests (to ensure targeted cargo is available for exam)

2) it can better facilitate export shipments if carriers and NVOCCs provide export vessel booking reports three days prior to scheduled departure and once after document cutoff for all non-bulk vessels (to expedite exams)
