Unlike other months, as from March, Customs will just consider closed exports at the time of presenting transport documentation which register exports that were really carried out.

In July the companies that did not regularize their situations were not registered. That month’s movement will appear when procedures are over, i.e. that date will be considered as shipment date by the Customs.

Ecuadorian Customs gave preliminary information about the first seven months of 2014: exports of frozen, raw, cooked and products totalled 118,211.2 tonnes, worth over USD 1,048.0 million FOB.
