Not related to the Pandemic, any off signing crew with contracts of 1 year or less and/or first time arriving in the U.S. are required to be escorted and attended to by guards from ship to airport/hotel. This requirement is at Customs and Border protection discretion. Crew must be on airplane departing while ship is in port.  In case crew cannot depart, then guards will be required at all times while in the U.S.  This is subject to Customs approval on a case by case basis.

 

While there have been few (if any) confirmed positive crew members arriving in the U.S. via ship, there have been vessels delayed entry into U.S. ports for not providing timely submissions of attestation letters where required.  Just a friendly reminder to ensure that this information is being transmitted to USCG well in advance of expected POB, in order to prevent any significant delays with entry into port, thank you.

 

Some terminals/services carrying out due diligence at their berths to limit the spread of the virus to crew and shore side personnel by limiting any direct contact with personnel.  In some cases, temperature checks, no paperwork exchanges, only via e-mail, crew not being allowed to depart while at their terminals. Gangways to be raised/removed when shore personnel leave ship during operations. Limit inspectors, gaugers etc. from entering terminal buildings.

 

Following oil terminals/maritime facilities have restrictions in place at the Port of New York/New Jersey for vessels under USCG Captain of the Port orders and/or US Customs operational details as per attached:

 

Gordons Terminal – No crew changes at terminal as a precaution due to the Corona Virus issue.  No one will be allowed to board or depart vessels and barges at terminal location until further notice accept cargo surveyors and agents.

 

Buckeye Port Reading – no crewmembers to will be allowed to depart while docked at the facility.  gangway to be removed after pilot departure, but gaugers can attend on arrival/sailing Going forward until further notice no ship crew members will be allowed to depart while docked at the facility.

There should be no paperwork exchanges with ship personnel. Our members can fill out the paperwork then email to the vessel.  Once the ship has completed the paperwork they should email to the tc-1 or gaugers and delivered to the dock.

Once the pilot has departed from the ship the gangway is to be removed from the ship until the pilot is ready to board to sail the ship.

There rover will also be stationed at the dock when a ship arrives. Once the gangway is removed from the ship the rover can continue his usual activities.

 

Inspectors should not be stationed at the terminal or entering the terminal building.  Tc-1 to call when they need gauges or samples then the inspector will take the paperwork back to the office and email to the tc-1. We are minimizing any direct contact with personnel and paperwork.

 

IMTT Bayonne - COVID-19 Mandatory Temperature Screening on all Personnel

All personnel to include contracted staff will be required to check into the East Gate screening area by vehicle.
