Gillibrand urges president to exempt bulk shipments of apples from double inspection

April 4, 2013

U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a newly appointed member of the President's Export Council, has urged the President to exempt bulk shipments of apples to Canada from double inspection. Fixing this would help New York apple growers streamline operations and save money. Exempting bulk shipments of U.S. apples to Canada from double inspection required by the Apple Export Act would offer growers immediate savings of approximately $300 per truckload, and allow growers to create their own distribution schedules, eliminating costly after-hours inspection procedures.
