Dear Valued Customer,
we would like to inform you of a change to the x-ray customs control system at the port of Bremerhaven as from 03. January 2016.
Presently the x-ray customs control for containers are arranged outside the terminal area. However with the purchase of mobile scanning devices, the future x-ray examinations will take place directly at the terminal.
German customs authorities and terminal operators have been working together closely to set up an efficient process to minimize the administrative and operational workload.
With the new process the German customs authorities will submit their scanning request directly to the terminal operator, who will arrange for the container to be transferred to the new scanning area accordingly. Unlike today no 3rd party will be involved.
Cost for this movement is set at EUR 250,00 which Maersk Line will debit to the involved customers accordingly.
For further information or any question related to this change please contact your local customer service.
With best regards
