To Our Valued Customers,
We have been notified by Customs and Border Protection that they are finding wood-boring pests in treated pallets. Importers should alert their shippers to inspect all pallets being used for loading. These pests leave markings on the wood and the shipper should be able to detect them.
Please note that CBP will require the immediate exportation of any unmarked WPM as well as any marked WPM that is found to be infested with a live wood-boring pest. All costs associated with the exportation are the responsibility of the importer of record or party of interest.
If you have any questions, please contact Customized Brokers at 305-471-8989.
