Fifteen days that’s how long the importation and exportation at the Northern Border was put on halt due to the suspension of the license of the only Agencia Aduanal “SAI” at the Mexican Border in Supteniente Lopez. Tonight, the good news is that another broker agency has begun operations and is working tirelessly to release all cargo trucks that have been stranded for days. Reporter Victor Castillo has been following the story since last week and today he was once again at the Mexican border and filed the following report.

Over the past days we have been reporting on the ongoing situation at the Belize/Mexico Border where products were not being allowed to be exported or imported to and from Belize and Mexico due to the suspension of license for the Agencia Aduanal, “Servicios Aduaneros Integrados,” which is the only broker agency for the importation and exportation of goods on the Mexican side of the border in Subeniente Lopez.


After sitting at the border for fifteen days, these containers, filled with a number of products including cement, steel and vegetables are finally being released for importation to Belize. The problem was solved with the opening of a new broker agency which started its operations on Friday last.


With the importation and exportation of goods returning to normality we managed to speak with Jesus Miguel Lara the director of the new agency, “Alfonso Bello Juarez”. Lara explained to us more in detail the entire operation.

“Nosotros empezamos operaciones el día viernes y ya se hizo la primera validación y de hecho ya fue despachado un camión el día viernes y por motivos de tiempo ya no se pudo hacer más validaciones en los pedimentos para la exportación de la mercancía pero si ya estamos en funcionamiento a partir del día viernes.”

“Que fue el problema que estos camiones estuvieron estancado once días?”


Jesus Lara – ABJ oficial


“El problema fue, por la agente aduanal antiguo, la persona que estaba aquí tuvo problemas con las autoridades de aduanas y una suspensión de patente y yo creo que ya están informados de eso. Nosotros somos una patente nueva, una patente que vino a operar aquí y a dar los servicios de importación o de exportación.”


In an off camera interview with CTV3 News last week, Licenciado Raymundo Loyola in charge of the custom department in Chetumal, told us that there are several reasons as to why SIA’s licenses was suspended including lack of information on importation and exportation documents, declaration and falsification of documents.


The suspension was requested by SAT. But while that problem has been resolved, the work is back logged and the process to handle approximately 80 to 90 containers will not be an easy task.


Jesus Lara – ABJ oficial


“Pues ahorita nos estamos apurando a sacar  lo más posible y le pedimos a la gente un poquito más, yo entiendo la situación y entiendo la postura y se estuvieron parados quince días son muchos días, pero también nosotros estamos echando todos las ganas para que sea rápido el trámite, obviamente esto lleva un proceso de validación lleva un proceso y no están rápido como a veces creemos pero yo creo en el transcurso de hoy, mañana y pasado mañana ya estamos haciendo toda a liberación de la mercancía hacia a Belice.”


Victor Castillo – Reporter


“Más o menos como cuantos camiones estamos viendo en total?”


Jesus Lara – ABJ oficial


“Pues esta parada toda la mercancía pues estamos hablando de ochenta, noventa camiones no se entre mercancía derivados y entre camiones y personas privadas que tramitan camiones.”


Victor Castillo – Reporter


“Para día de hoy que es la meta?”


Jesus Lara – ABJ oficial


“Para el día de hoy es empezar a dar le movimiento rápido a esto para que la gente ya pueda pasar su mercancía y ya empezar a acelerar el funcionamiento de la empresa.”


As for Servicios Aduaneros Integrados, CTV3 News understands that their license or Patente remains suspended until further notice.
