Please be advised that the Puerto Rico Ports Authority has given notice of suspending any charges related to the Enhanced Security Fee from Regulation 8837 effective immediately. This determination has been made according to Puerto Rico Court of Appeals’ Resolutions of February and March 2017. As a result, Crowley will stop collecting said fees immediately.
Please also note that the Puerto Rico Ports Authority is permitted to continue scanning cargo in containers as long as no fee is charged. We expect that the legal controversy surrounding the challenge to the scanning fee will remain fluid. We will update you with any additional information as it becomes available.
