Hurricane Harvey Causes Long-Term Closures in Texas Ports

August 30, 2017

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Port of Houston and other Texas ports have sustained considerable damages and, as a result, are closed until further notice from the CBP.

CBP has recently published guidance for shipment diversions which clarifies that any manifest documentation for shipments currently destined for a closed port must be amended to reflect the new port of discharge.
