U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will open a new cargo processing facility at the St. Thomas Sandfill. The new facility is located adjacent to the Tropical Shipping warehouse and will open on Monday, Oct. 19. All cargo clearances that were previously cleared at the Edward W. Blyden Marine Terminal and Ron de Lugo Federal Building will now be processed at this new facility.

“CBP is excited to open and operate at the St. Thomas Sandfill,” said Assistant Area Port Director-Trade Marcia Murrell. “We look forward to providing a facility that will further support the trade community as we continue in our efforts to automate cargo processing in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

The new facility is a welcomed relief from the congestion created at the Blyden Marine Terminal where U.S. Customs and Border Protection was relocated due to hurricanes Irma and Maria.

CBP Cargo Operations will operate from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  The office can be reached at 340-714-1600.
