that the FTA in place with New Zealand lowers the incidence of dutiable cargo, thereby reducing delays that otherwise would be attributable to customs brokers waiting to secure importer funds before payment of duties, taxes and charges. This indicates that for sea cargo, transit times should not be viewed as a reason for late cargo reporting or declaration lodgement.

29 Time Release Study 2007 Average Above Average Below Average transit times in themselves are not generally material to the timing of cargo reporting or declaration lodgement. Rather, it is the quality and effectiveness of business- to-business relationships and communications that are stronger factors in this regard. Discharge port As shown in Table 3.6, when segmented by discharge port, the results demonstrate some distinct differences in processing outcomes between ports. These differences occur in all process segments or intervals, indicating that the underlying causes lie variously with industry, with Customs and Border Protection and with AQIS.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
