THE Bureau of Customs (BOC) has appealed overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and their families to claim the 294 remaining balikbayan boxes currently in BOC custody which were stored in a warehouse for more than a year now. 

In an advisory, the unclaimed balikbayan  boxes, identified with Bill of Lading numbers ONEYKW1TA1994400, ONEYKW1TA1968500, ONEYKW1TA1998800 and consigned to Mediacom Express Cargo and Pinoy Network Cargo WLL, arrived in the Philippines from Kuwait on Feb. 12, 2023.

The BOC said the boxes were abandoned by the forwarder after collecting payments from abroad, leaving the OFWs and their families without their hard-earned balikbayan boxes.

Of these abandoned balikbayan boxes, the BOC has already facilitated the release and distribution of over 450 balikbayan boxes, bringing the total number of successfully distributed boxes to 10,084.

The unclaimed boxes are currently stored at Port Net Logistics, Inc. CFS Warehouse, located at 2657 Old Panaderos St, Santa Ana, Manila, 1009 Metro Manila.
