Release Date: 
October 16, 2020

ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands - 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 beginning on Monday October 19, 2020.    

All cargo clearances that were previously cleared at the Edward W. Blyden Marine Terminal and the 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”, stated Marcia Murrell, Assistant Area Port Director-Trade. “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 US Virgin Islands”.  

The new facility is a welcomed relief from the congestion created at the EWB Marine Terminal where CBP was relocated due to Hurricanes Irma and Maria.  

CBP Cargo Operations will operate Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.  The office can be reached at 340-714-1600.
