Postponed: Proposed Changes to the Manifesting and Entry Requirements of Empty Residue Cargo Returning to the U.S.

As mentioned in a Marketing News on Oct. 18, 2013, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a Federal Register Notice announcing the implementation of a test pilot outlining manifesting and entry requirements of empty residue cargo returning to the U.S.

Effective Monday, Nov. 18, 2013, the CBP has postponed the test pilot until further notice. BNSF will communicate updates regarding the test pilot in future Marketing News notifications.
