Declaration duplication

A South American ship agent declared 47 transhipment cargoes to Customs. The declaration was made electronically and referred to a specific manifest. Less than a week later the agent mistakenly entered declarations for the same cargoes but referenced a different manifest.

Customs subsequently issued a fine against the agent for US$ 39,885 which was reimbursed by ITIC.
