Comptroller of Customs Owen Holder is giving Barbadians the assurance that by next Friday, the backlog in clearing containers at the Bridgetown Port should be considerably reduced.
He said this would allow frustrated customers to finally receive their outstanding packages, some of which have been stuck there as long as four months.
Holder was speaking to the Weekend Nation yesterday, after frustrated customers took to social media expressing concerns over shipments not received from Aeropost, DHL, UPS and Laparkan, dating back to last September in some instances.
“In relation to couriers like Aeropost, DHL and so forth, we had a meeting with them on Friday (January 17) and we’ve put certain measures in place where we have received and given agreement that by January 31, all of those issues will be behind us,” he said. (RA)
