NOTE 1: Charges are assessed against the steamship line and/or its authorized agent. The Authority will not honor requests to cancel any billing and re-bill another party.
NOTE 2: The services provided by the terminal operator in connection with this charge are government agency relocation service for inspection without devanning and/or U.S. Customs's VACIS II gamma ray in-container ("x-ray") inspection. If the Authority is directed to devan any or all of the cargo for inspection, then the charges for either full or partial customs inspection will apply, in lieu of the lower Facilitation Fee.
NOTE 3: When the Authority devans a container at the direction of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and all of the cargo will not fit back into the container due to the nature of the cargo or intricacies of the loading pattern, the Authority will not be responsible for any additional charges, unless they are a result of the Authority's negligence.
NOTE 4: When the Authority is requested to move a container to
the terminal's washpad because said container is required by
Customs and Border Protection to be washed, this charge will
apply. The washing must be conducted by an approved third
party, selected by the cargo owner or its customs broker.
