PROCESS FOR CLEARING CARGO.
Operations Process for clearing cargo from the Port Warehouse
- The shipping agent provides the consignee a “delivery slip” which allows the consignee to start the process of clearing the cargo through Customs and collecting the cargo from the Port Warehouse.
- The consignee presents the delivery slip to the Port Cashier and pays the Port charges. The Port Cashier will stamp the delivery slip to show that the amount is settled.
- The consignee will then present the stamped delivery slip to a Port Operations clerk stationed in Warehouse. The Port Operations clerk will locate the cargo and take it to the Customs area for examination in the presence of the consignee.
- After examination by Customs and the settlement of Customs charges, the consignee is given a Cargo Release Advice (CRA) by Customs.
- Then the Port Operations clerk takes the CRA and delivery slip from the consignee and prepares a Gate Pass. Port Operations clerk will print Gate Pass and load cargo on vehicle in conjunction with Port Security Officer stationed in Warehouse.
- Port Operations Clerk and Port Security will sign Gate Pass and present to Customer.
- Port Clerk / Port Operator would deliver cargo to vehicle or to customer if taking by hand.
- Customer to give gate pass to the Port Security Officer at the gate
- Port Security officer at the main gate would verify and sign Gate Pass and allow departure.
