The following advisory serves as notification of a change to our current policy regarding collection of titles for vehicles. Our current policy regarding validated title collection exceeds the requirements outlined in the Code of Federal Regulations referred to as 19 CFR. Although our intent has been to prevent non-compliant vehicles from loading our vessels, it is clear based on recent customer interviews and vehicle shipment history that our policies around used vehicles are not providing additional value or benefit to our customers or Maersk. We are therefore removing ourselves as an additional checkpoint in the process, and instead we will allow customers and US Customs and Border Protection to maintain the responsibility of regulatory requirements for vehicle shipments exporting out of US ports of call.

Our new policy will be based on the assumption that shipments subject to the regulations under 19 CFR will load unless requested by customers or US Customs and Border Protection not to load.

How this will affect you

  • We will no longer be collecting copies of the validated titles.
  • If you wish to roll your cargo, you must notify us 2 hours prior to port cutoff local port time by e-mailing NAMCUSVEH@maersk.com to request containers to be rolled.

This new policy will be effective Monday, March 28, 2022. For Maersk shipments loading from the below locations, we will no longer be collecting copies of titles for vehicles.
