The Cayman Islands Customs and Border Control Service issued a statement saying that delays with incoming shipments via UPS are not due to Customs.

“They are the result of a private commercial issue between two local on-island agents that provide services for UPS,” according to the statement.

“CBC is hopeful that the on-Island agents will resolve this issue shortly so that customers are not further impacted,” according to the statement.

“UPS customers should contact their on-island agents for further information and assistance.”
