Companhia Docas do Rio de Janeiro (CDRJ) is about to lodge a request with the Federal Customs Department for part of its public dock at Rio de Janeiro Port to become a customs clearance area again after five years without this. This is because it has fulfilled the last requirement of the customs agency which was to provide a scanner for non-invasive inspection. Last Tuesday (18/02), the Scan Sharing Agreement was signed with Multi-Rio Operations, leasing one of its container terminals, thus allowing the shared use of the terminal scanner.

The CDRJ must submit all paperwork required and wait for the agency’s analysis and approval, which should happen this semester. “With the recovery of customs at Rio de Janeiro, CDRJ will have more of its own resources to invest in port infrastructure”, emphasizes the CDRJ’s CEO, Francisco Antonio de Magalhães Laranjeira. A similar contract is due to be signed soon with the other container terminal tenant at Rio de Janeiro – ICTSI (International Container Terminal Services).

Customizing this area of ​​the public dock in the Port of Rio de Janeiro means bringing the area under absolute customs control, with the Customs having to authorize any movement, storage and customs clearance of goods for import or export cargo.
