The outbound lorry clears customs at the highway port of the Bridge.
Gongbei Customs’ mode of “cross-border expedite clearance” connected smoothly with Hong Kong Customs’ “intermodal transport facilitating scheme (ITFS)” over Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge on January 17.
That morning, a lorry with Guangzhou Customs e-lock arrived at Zhuhai highway port of the Bridge, carrying DHL express goods worth 720,000 Yuan; the onsite officers of Gongbei Customs, after verifying the e-lock and the container, immediately released the lorry to Hong Kong through the Bridge; subsequently, Hong Kong Customs also fast released the lorry as per its ITFS to Hong Kong Airport, where the goods were then transported by air to America and Europe.
Thanks to nationwide customs-clearance integration on the paperless basis and Guangdong’s measures for landway expedite clearance, enterprises can clear customs in advance at the highway port of the Bridge; additionally, lorry inspection results are mutually recognized between Guangdong-based Customs and Hong Kong Customs, thus reducing repetitive inspections, and their expedite clearance modes are mutually connected over the Bridge, further enhancing the clearance efficiency.
At the highway port, normally a vehicle can clear customs within 3 minutes from its arrival and, if not needing inspection, a vehicle will be released within 10 seconds, thus enterprises’ cross-border trading cost can be cut down considerably and the logistics in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area can be further facilitated by the Bridge.
