Starting September 1, 2014, the Port of Savannah, Georgia will be authorized to accept cold-treated commodities from the following countries:


Citrus - mandarins, tangelos, clementine, tangerines, grapefruit and sour limes







Containers that do not pass cold treatment will be prohibited from entering the port and will not be offloaded from vessels. Failed containers will be allowed transit via sea to a Northeastern port for retreatment, or they will be re-exported to the country of origin.

We are now accepting applications for these commodities. Please contact Permit Services for more information:
