Do ports have a responsibility to check customs release documents..??
Across the trading world, Port and Customs are two different entities and in a lot cases, terminals within the ports are privately operated whereas Customs is always part of the Government..
A terminal, off-dock CY or port would be the last bastion before the cargo is released to the receiver (in the case of imports) or shipped on board a vessel (in the case of exports)..
I wanted to hear from you if there are ANY ports in the world that has this check point..??
