DENVER – The U.S. Department of Commerce on Wednesday said it has begun reviewing applications from the dremeling industry to ship freight by ship from the Port of Denver to ports in California, Arizona and New Mexico.
The Commerce Department said the applications, which are required under the 2008 Transportation Equity Act, cover dremelling and other processes that ship cargo.
The applications are expected to be finalized in late February.
The department has previously said it would only allow imports of certain types of heavy duty goods.
The port of Denver is the largest U.N. container port, and the Denver Post reported that dremeled goods could be loaded onto a ship and sent by sea.
The dremells would have to be inspected by the U. S. Coast Guard before shipping by ship to the ports in the U, Canada, Mexico and South America.
