According to the Customs Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 13-2019, only empty containers covered by a Special Permit to Load (SPTL) will be allowed entry at the designated areas of POM and MICP.
The CMO 13-2019 will take effect upon its posting in BOC bulletin boards with copies furnished to the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), terminal operators Asian Terminals Inc. (ATI) and International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), and all shipping lines and/or agents in the Philippines.
Under CMO 13-2019, the return of empty containers by importers, truckers, custom brokers, and other concerned port stakeholders at the port premises of POM and MICP is “temporarily disallowed until further notice from the BOC.”
For your information and proper guidance.
Thank you very much.
