Sub: Issuance of Form E-13 before LEO for Export Containers in JNCH
JNCH (Nhava Sheva) has issued Public Notice No. 35/2018 dated 08.03.2018 regarding issuance of Form E-13 before Let Export Order (LEO) for Export Containers in JNCH for streamlining the procedure of Export in Parking Plaza.
In this regard, a meeting with all the stakeholders was called on 19.02.2018 at JNCH chaired by Commissioner, JNCH wherein it was decided that at the time of entry of Export containers in the Parking Plaza, exporters/ CHAs are not required to produce the Form E-13. But Form E-13 has to be produced mandatorily after the registration process and before the issuance of LEO. Hence, Form E-13 would be a prerequisite for the issuance of LEO.
This practice is aimed at ensuring that the containers move directly to the port terminal after LEO generation. Movement of Containers/ TTs for export should be planned by exporters in such a way that they reach the port at the closest possible date of vessel shutout with some additional time to void the eleventh hour rush.
The above procedure would be applicable to Refrigerated and Containers containing Perishable Cargo also.
Members may kindly make a note of the above
