Effective immediately and until further notice, ALL automobile/vehicles delivered for export (Nationwide) with NY State documentation will not clear USCBP and cannot load.
Any/All titles submitted to USCBP yesterday February 6th and today February 7th will NOT CLEAR USCBP for export and will remain on ground until further notice.
We hope this NY / US government impasse will be resolved and normal Export Commerce will go back to normal.
Please advise all your drivers of the below bulleting, and make sure they do not attempt to make any deliveries of NY State titled vehicles; THE CARGO WILL BE REJECTED AT THE GATE.
Date: 02/07/2020


Please be advised we have been informed by CBP that because of the Green Light Law in NY, they do not have access to NY State DMV information. This means any unit presented for export with a New York State title cannot be processed and cleared for sailing. We are monitoring this situation and will keep you up to date with any further developments. Please keep delivering your roro units with NY titles and they will be processed as soon as this situation has been resolved. For containers we recommend not delivering until resolved in order to avoid large storage if this situation continues. For units that have already been cleared for export we will be able to load.

 

***This is in effect for all US ports of load.

Grimaldi Lines top priority is and always has been the safety of the crew and the vessel as well as others who work on the ship.

Policy will be in effect at all load ports and we cannot allow any exceptions to these rules.

We will be running out of space to receive non-runner and forklift units at Wilmington, DE’s main receiving terminal.  Please note below. Autoport will receive non-runner and forklift units as normal through end of business Monday 1/27.  Effective Tuesday 1/28, non-runners and forklift units can only be received inside the Port of Wilmington at Autoport’s inside terminal yard.  In order to deliver these non-runner and forklift units into their inside port terminal yard, the trucker delivering cargo must have a TWIC card.  Truckers who don’t have a TWIC card trying to deliver non-runner and forklift units will not be accepted.  Truckers must still first check into Autoport’s terminal receiving office on Pigeon Point Road as normal.  Once checked in truckers delivering non-runner and forklift units will be given specific instructions as to where to go inside the Port of Wilmington using the main port entrance.  All running cargo will be received as normal.

Please be advised that we are temporarily not able to receive any Non-Running units at Dundalk Terminal in Baltimore, MD due to lack of space. We will advise when receiving for Non-Runners is reopened.

*UPDATED: We are sorry for the short notice for Non-Runners. We have just today found out there is no space in the Non-Runner yard. We are working with the terminal to accommodate any Non-Runners currently in line or en route to the terminal so that no one is turned away today. After today we cannot accept any Non-Runners for the rest of the week. Receiving for Non-Runners will reopen Monday January 27.
