In Shijiazhuang Customs District, a batch of mixed wood chips of Eucalyptus and Albizia from Malaysia, totaling 11,700 tons, cleared customs at the port of Caofeidian on September 29, marking the first import of wood chips in Hebei Province.
Reportedly, these wood chips were imported by a Tangshan-based timber industrial company for the production of high-end particleboard and density board which, by estimate, will consume 900,000 tons of wood chips per year.
Caofeidian Customs House, in line with local development strategy, gives support to timber industry development in the Caofeidian region. In order to achieve the smooth clearance, the Customs House took advance measures to understand the cargo information from the importer and formulate specific quarantine instructions; carried out the cargo quarantine in strict accordance with relevant procedures, including surface test on the wood chips and overall inspections at the anchorage to ensure the bio-safety of the port.
