Does Your Customs Bond Provide Sufficient Coverage?

The recent imposition of tariffs on certain imports may need consignees to consider increasing the level of their continuous bond to cover projected duty, tax and fees.

Failure to maintain a sufficient level of bond may hinder consignees ability to obtain a timely release which may result in demurrage and detention charges.

The bonds are not based on the value of the cargo but rather the estimated duties, taxes and fees which, in some circumstances, have increased considerably.

In the event of any questions please do not hesitate to contact our your ASF representative or anyone of our team of CHB professionals.

In the wake of rising fuel costs, container carriers, including the three largest — Maersk Line, Mediterranean Shipping Company and CMA CGM — have announced new bunker surcharges.

Earlier this week MSC said in an announcement, “The continued surge in bunker prices has greatly impacted the operating environment for container shipping lines. Fuel prices are up more than 30 percent this year, and almost 70 percent since last June. Prices in Europe exceeded $442 per metric ton last week. With crude oil today hovering around $80 a barrel — the highest since 2014 — the situation is no longer sustainable without emergency action.”

In a letter to customers on its website, MSC did not spell out the exact size of the charge, but said it was introducing a worldwide temporary emergency bunker surcharge on all ocean and land-based cargo carriage with immediate effect. MSC said the “last-resort measure is essential to ensure that we navigate these challenging economic conditions in a steady and sustainable way and continue to provide a high quality of service to all our customers.”

An announcement from Maersk Line on Friday said its emergency bunker surcharge (EBS) of $60 on 20-foot containers and $120 on 40-foot and 45-foot dry containers will go into effect June 1 on many trades, but July 1 on “regulated corridors” including lanes to and from the United States.

Update from the National Hardwood Lumber Association concerning Logs.

Thursday afternoon NHLA, along with AHEC, the Hardwood Federation and several other hardwood trade associations and industry leaders participated in a conference call with APHIS Deputy Administrator Osama El-Lissy and his staff. The call was convened to discuss the developing situation in China regarding the ramped up inspections of containers with untreated logs. The Deputy Administrator started the call by recapping the issue in which the Chinese General Administration on Customs (GACC) announced that treatment of raw logs in country will no longer be allowed at Chinese ports and that logs fumigated in Hong Kong will no longer be allowed entry into mainland ports.

Deputy Administrator El-Lissy announced the he and his team have been in discussions with Chinese officials to resolve the situation with untreated logs and continue trade in these products with as little interruption as possible. Based on these discussions, China has agreed to allow for in-country fumigation for shipments that are currently on the water (prior to May 2, 2018) provided that the exporting company can demonstrate that it has successfully exported logs to China in the past. This concession does not apply to future shipments, however, and so negotiations with the Chinese government on this matter continue.
