Imports of Auto Products, FDA-Regulated Goods Again Being Processed at World Trade Bridge
U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports that as of 8:00 a.m. on June 1 it has added automotive products and Food and Drug Administration-regulated goods to the list of imports being processed at the World Trade Bridge in Laredo, Texas. The FDA will monitor shipments of FDA-regulated goods electronically and place holds as necessary to coordinate further inspection.
CBP has previously resumed processing imports of empty tractors and trailers (including automotive racks in empty trailers), FAST and C-TPAT certified companies, informal entries, and agriculture (perishables) at this facility as it works to restore full operations following significant damage from a May 21 storm. Other types of imports are being processed at the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge, and exports to Mexico via all modes of commercial traffic are being processed at both bridges.
