HCMC – Lang Son, the northern province of Vietnam, has halted the entry of cargo trucks into its bonded zone in Tan My Commune, according to authorities of the Dong Dang-Lang Son border gate’s economic zone.
Cargo trucks heading for China are now advised to proceed directly to the border gates for customs clearance, instead of waiting in the bonded area.
This decision comes in response to a recent decline in the number of vehicles transporting goods to the Huu Nghi international border gate. As a result, there is ample room at the border gate for vehicles awaiting customs clearance.
The bonded zone in Tan My Commune, six kilometers from Tan Thanh border gate and eight kilometers from Huu Nghi border gate, serves as a facility to organize and categorize vehicles transporting exports from various regions of the country to China via Tan Thanh and Huu Nghi border gates.
As of the end of September, Huu Nghi international border gate had witnessed the highest number of vehicles undergoing customs clearance procedures, with about 800 vehicles per day, including 230 carrying export goods.
In related news, the economic authorities of Dong Dang-Lang Son border gate announced the temporary closure of Coc Nam and Na Hinh border gates from October 1 to 6, 2023, due to the Chinese National Day holiday. However, Huu Nghi, Tan Thanh, and Chi Ma border gates will maintain their normal operations.
Additionally, Chi Ma border gate will enhance its customs clearance capacity by operating normally on weekends and public holidays starting this month, foregoing previous days off.
