The entry at the Zamboanga City Port of imported commodities for human needs rarely  happens —  only at every quarter or sometimes every five months of  every year.

This was revealed by Bureau of Customs Zamboanga City District Office Officer-in-Charge  Darwisa J. Schuck, who said that some  of the imported products that entered the local port are goods imported by Price Gas and  Mega Plywood for their productionin addition to the NFA rice importation.

Schuck explained that imported goods coming from  other countries arrive here aboard foreign  vessels. The importers download the cargoes in Manila and tranship them to Zamboanga City or other cities in the country.

Direct importation of rice from other Asian countries entered here in Zamboanga City Port Customs and duties and payment are collected by BoC Central Office in Manila.

“I will do my best and work as a team with support and cooperation of my colleagues in the Bureau so that we will reach our revenue collection target this year. BoC Zamboanga City District Office target for this year is P72 million,” Schuck said.

Schuck assumed office as Officer in Charge last September 17 vice Abubakar M. Hamad who retired from government service  last September 18.

Schuck’s appointment was dated September 14, 2012 under Customs Personnel Order number- B- 250-2012 signed by Commissioner Rozzano Rufino B. Biazon. She has been with the bureau since in 1990. Her position now is Customs Operations Officer IV. — Allen Abastillas
