BOC eyes new time release study to spot cargo bottlenecks

The Bureau of Customs will conduct a national time release study (TRS) to identify and troubleshoot bottlenecks in the clearance of cargoes.

The TRS aims to get a “full picture of exactly just how long these containers or shipments are actually staying in our ports, Sir, for us to be able to troubleshoot the bottlenecks,” Customs Commissioner Rey Leonardo Guerrero said in a recent Lower House Committee on Ways and Means hearing.

In a text message to PortCalls, Guerrero said BOC will be meeting with the World Customs Organization (WCO) to get the details for the national TRS.
