    • Note:  License plates are not needed at the time of appointment, but are needed prior to driver arrival at the terminal
    • Failure to provide license plate information may result in driver being denied entry


Also, as a reminder and for your future reference, please see the existing policies for appointments at FMS:

  • Appointments are required for all import deliveries, including refrigerated containers and wheeled imports
  • Trucks without an appointment for import pick up will be denied entry
  • Appointments can be made on Voyage Control (fenixmarine.voyagecontrol.com)
