SC 21-018

Notification to the Port of New Orleans Trade Community that there will be limited parking in front of the New Orleans Customhouse from Wednesday December 16 – Friday December 18, 2020. 

As a reminder:

  • Vessel agents may enter and clear vessels within the tri-port (consolidated port) in person at the New Orleans, Gramercy and/or Baton Rouge Port Offices.
  • Additionally, agents currently have the option enter and clear vessels via e-mail as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic plan to avoid in person transactions.
  • Paper, complete outbound manifests may be submitted to CBP via mail or express consignment courier (for example: DHL, FedEx, UPS) within four (4) business days from the date clearance is granted, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Federal Holidays.
