   Customs and Border Protection on Thursday announced that its officers had recently seized a shipment of 450 counterfeit designer baseball-style caps that arrived at Washington Dulles International Airport.
    The agency said the retail value, if the caps had been authentic, would be about $207,000
    CBP officers inspected two shipments of designer brand name hats March 18. The shipments contained 250 and 200 hats, respectively, and wore the brands of Gucci, Chanel, LV Supreme, Y-3 Adidas and Louis Vuitton.
    The shipment of 250 caps arrived from China and was destined to Centerville, Va., while the shipment of 200 caps had a Hong Kong origin and was destined to a Manassas Park, Va. address.

   Suspecting that the caps were counterfeit, the CBP officers seized the shipments and the agency’s Consumer Products and Mass Merchandising Centers for Excellence and Expertise was called in to work with the trademark holders to verify their authenticity.
    The seizure is an example of the many counterfeit products stopped by CBP daily. According to the agency, on an average day in 2018, CBP officers nationwide seized $3.7 million worth of products for intellectual property rights violations.

As a leading U.S. crude oil export port and a major economic engine of Texas and the nation, the Port of Corpus Christi is now the 4th largest port in the United States in total tonnage.

The United States' major retail container ports handled 1.75 million TEUs in April, which was a 6.9% year-over-year increase, according to the Global Port Tracker.
