English term or phrase:slow port clearance process
Auszug aus einem Schulungskurs für Mitarbeiter
The port authorities are requesting a bribe from the Ship Master before allowing him to dock.
It is common practice for international shipping companies to make these payments in order to potentially avoid a ***slow port clearance process***, a troublesome situation or even be denied clearance in some extreme cases.
