Detroit Field Office Issues Information Pipeline on Brown Rugose Fruit Virus

On Wednesday, the Detroit Field office of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued an “Information Pipeline” document regarding the “Northern Border Imports of Tomato and Pepper Shipments with Suspected Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus (ToBRFV) Symptoms.”

In this document, CBP details the process and procedures at the Ports of Detroit and Port Huron. If your company ships tomatoes or peppers that were grown in Mexico, Israel, or the Netherlands, please take time to read and understand the process occurring at the port of entry. This will help your company navigate the process more efficiently.

While the Canada - U.S. border is now closed to non-essential traffic, it is still open for trade and commerce. We are committed to doing our part for global supply chains.

We are protecting the health and safety of our employees. They are working from home, except for critical functions that require certain equipment or managing paper/courier flow. In those cases we are following social distancing guidelines.

We are open and available to assist you, and key players in your supply chains. Our dedicated staff are available 24/7 and our brokerage and logistics experts are available to help you make adjustments to your supply chain, if necessary.

We encourage you to check out the government programs available to families, businesses, exporters and importers. And, while respecting the need for social distancing we encourage everyone, including our staff, to reach out and remain connected to family, friends, colleagues and customers.
