US CUSTOMS REGULATIONS AND THEIR EFFECT ON DOOR-TO-DOOR CONTAINER OPERATIONS

The flow of containerized cargo among countries is obstructed by customs regulations. Existing U.S. Customs offices in Canada, Bermuda, Nassau and the Bahamas permit goods to pass through U.S. ports without any delay. The same arrangement is possible at other foreign locations from which substantial quantities of containerized goods are exported. This would bring about uninterrupted shipment from the point of origin abroad to the point of destination in the United States. Sufficient volume from a particular point of orgin would warrant the presence of a U.S. Customs examiner. A description of present import and export systems and an evaluation of container operations are provided, as well as a description of needed adjustments.
