Steps to Clearing Your Cargo
FOLLOW THESE SIX STEPS CAREFULLY TO COLECT YOUR BARREL
STEP 1: COLLECT YOUR DOCUMENTS
Collect your Order or Bill of Lading from your shipping agent, freight forwarder or customs broker.
STEP 2: GO TO THE KINGPORT BUILDING WITH DOCUMENTS AND PAY CHARGES
Take these documents (that is your Order or Bill of Lading) along with your valid identification and TRN to the Kingston Wharves Head Office at the Kingport Building on Third Street in Newport West to pay the handling and storage charges due. You will receive a customer service number.
(Any ONE of the following forms of identification is acceptable – National ID; Drivers’ License or Passport.) Please be reminded that there will be a security check at the entrance.
STEP 3: GO TO CUSTOMS CENTRAL MANIFEST
Take all of your documents to the Customs Central Manifest office for documents check and processing. At this point the Customs Officer will match your documents against the information submitted to Jamaica Customs. Your documents will then be validated with a Customs Stamp, if everything is in order.
[If you have a major amendment that cannot be handled by the Customs Officer or KWL Warehouse Supervisor, you will directed by the Customs Officer regarding further assistance. Once completed, please return to the Customer Service Desk at the Kingport Building with the amended documents.]
STEP 4: GO TO THE BERTHS / WAREHOUSE
Your barrel is stored inside a warehouse located at the Berths. There are two (2) Berths - Berth 6 and Berth 7. The specific Berth where your barrel is being stored is printed on your documents. Go to that Berth and present your validated documents to the Security Officer at the Warehouse. Your documents will be reviewed. Listen for your customer service number to be announced. You will be directed to the Customs Inspection Area.
STEP 5: CUSTOMS INSPECTION AND PAYMENT OF DUTY
A Customs Officer will inspect the items in your barrel. You will be told how much duty is to be paid and that payment must be made at the Customs Cashier. Please remember to collect the Customs Release from the Customs Cashier.
STEP 6: COLLECT GATE PASS, COLLECT BARREL AND EXIT
You must collect a gate pass at the Berth in order for your transportation to gain access through the Main Gate. Present your documents to the Security Officer for inspection at the Warehouse where your barrel is located and sign to acknowledge receipt of goods. Collect your barrel and head to the exit gate with your transportation. You are all done!
