New customs system for private vehicle warehouses

KINGSTON: As of Monday, January 18, all private bonded warehouses for motor vehicles will be mandated by the Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) to do their import entries through the Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA).

Commissioner of Customs Major Richard Reese, said the ASYCUDA World Customs project has now completed implementation with respect to all non commercial cargo imports and the Sufferance Wharves.

“We will commence the piloting of the authorised Economic Operator Importers, and in respect of private-bonded warehouse operators who import new and used cars, they will be 100 per cent compliant,” he said.

Major Reese said the JCA will also commence phasing for it to be mandatory for commercial cargo shipments to use the system and before the end of January, it will start the piloting for freezone imports and transshipments.
