ONLY 14% OF THE CARGO IN CALLAO MEET THE ANTICIPATED DISPATCH

The president of the National Port Authority (APN), Frank Boyle, said that now, because a number of situations that have not yet overcome, the Customs anticipate dispatch, is not more than 14 percent of foreign trade in the particular case of Callao port.

 

While in ports like Paita (Piura) or Matarani (Arequipa), the main exporters ports after Callao Port, the anticipated dispatch is almost nonexistent.

 

He recalled that the implementation of the Customs Anticipate Dispatch means that 88 percent of all freight is by this system, while 12 percent follow its normal process, as provided when was signed the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with United States EE.UU.

He said that it is an achievement that to move a container requires a budget of US$ 850, because not long time ago that same container means an outlay of between US$ 1.200 and US$ 1.500 for the exporter.

"Keep down the costs depends on having more fronts for berthing, faster in the attention, less time spent by the ship and the arrival of larger volumes ships," he told the magazine Empresas & Negocios of the Chamber of Commerce Lima (CCL).

Said that implementation of the Customs anticipate dispatch should help to reduce the cost of moving a container to US$ 300, but is still very slow on this topic.
