Centralized Examination Stations (CES) play a critical role in the import process into the United States, particularly at major ports like Port Newark. These facilities are designated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to conduct thorough inspections of imported goods, including agricultural products. The primary goal of CES is to streamline the inspection process, ensuring that all regulatory and safety standards are met without causing significant delays to the supply chain.

Salson Logistics operates the largest CES in Port Newark, performing all CES exams including Agricultural Quarantine Inspection (AQI) services. This 24/7 facility is strategically located less than one mile from the Port, allowing for swift transportation and processing of goods, which is crucial for maintaining the freshness and integrity of perishable items. Salson’s operation stands out for its efficiency, boasting turn times that significantly surpass the customs average, according to U.S. Customs data.
