04/10/2024 Port-au-Prince, Haiti Seaport, Airport Cargo, and Commercial flights to and from PAP continue to be closed. Port-au-Prince has been cut off from the rest of the country. Cargo received in the US is being stored in Miami, FL., until further notice. Our sailing dated 03/01/2024 was returned to Miami as the liner could not offload containers. We strongly advise you to purchase Marine Ocean Insurance, to have 15 days covered at the port from the time the vessel is offloaded as a precaution.  Ask us before shipping and insure your cargo. Haiti continues to be Very High Risk and lack of stability is widespread throughout the country.

01/19/2024 The port areas continue to be not secured. Marine Ocean Insurance covers your goods from door to port, and container transit to the destination agent max 15 days after the cargo is offloaded from the vessel.  It does not cover the destination agent's location, nor your location if FCL is delivered to your door.  An Annual Open Cargo Insurance for Business Consignees may be customized by you to cover you from transit shipper to your hands at destination for all your year-round shipping needs, saving you time and money. You can customize your coverage subject to rates per liability chosen by you. If you do not buy cargo insurance, you have accepted the risk of cargo damage or loss. Ask us for cargo insurance and protect your cargo before shipping.

12/24/2023 - CCS Haiti over the holiday experienced a warehouse fire in one of the sections of the warehouse. Thankfully, our office, and staff are operational and open for business.  What happens next is that clearance and pick up of LCL cargo will be at CPS 8, located on Airport Road.  The CCS Haiti traffic coordinator will contact you for clearance formalities. The port area continues to be not secured.

08/01/2023 - The port areas in Haiti continue to be "not secured."  Insuring your cargo with purchased insurance by you before shipping only covers from Door to Port with an additional 15 days max once offloaded.  CCS Haiti evaluates the day-to-day, risk of elimination of events, that may unfold sporadically before transporting a container from the port to our location or to a consignee door. This day-to-day risk of elimination creates a clearance delay of 15 days or even more depending on the risk, and or civil unrest.   Should you need urgent cargo transport, please consult our air rates at sales@chatelaincargo.com. CCS Miami and CCS Haiti are separate entities.  For FCL and LCL please refer to the back of a Bill of Lading for terms and conditions port to door. We will continue to revise current Haiti news as we receive it, to keep you informed.

CCS Miami and or CCS Haiti are owned and operated individually under the jurisdictions they serve, subject to laws under each jurisdiction, and the location of each premise.  Haiti continues to be a Very High Risk for business climate.  Haiti is subject to sporadic civil unrest, especially in the Port areas. The process to release containers is a day-to-day risk elimination of the port areas.  Please keep in mind that clearance delays are to be expected within 15 days or beyond given the current lack of stability. If your cargo is urgent, please request an air rate before shipping to our Miami warehouse at sales@chatelaincargo.com. 

CCS thanks you for your continued support, as we hope and pray for a peaceful resolution for Haiti.
