NOTE FOR EXPORTERS:

EWC is addressing the late firm stack notification with TPT and are in the process of putting in place the minimum requirements from industry, so should you have any comments/thoughts on this, please drop me a mail.
Deadline for submission is Monday 18th March.

This in particular with reference to the USA stacks when the SI cut off is 48 hours prior to vessel arrival.

Together we can!

Yours in exporting.
