New Program to Improve Used Vehicle Export Process

A new electronic Vehicle Validation Export Process Program is now available to shippers exporting vehicles from Broward County's Port Everglades.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in Port Everglades implemented a new process to allow shippers to submit original vehicle export documentation electronically in lieu of delivering physical copies to their local CBP trade office. The electronic validation program, which is the first of its kind anywhere in the country, is currently being offered in Port Everglades to exporters needing to ship used vehicles from South Florida to destinations throughout the Caribbean, Central America and beyond.

Crowley Maritime Corp., AFL International Logistics Group and King Ocean were critical players in the development of the new process, which has been extended to all ocean carriers serviced by Port Everglades.

The new electronic process, exclusive to Port Everglades, gives exporters the ability to skip in-person visits to CBP’s trade office to deliver original vehicle export documentation — a time-saving efficiency that ensures faster document processing and reduces shipment times by around a day.
