As a result, there was nothing inside the container. Cha Lo Customs made a record of the case and issued a Decision on the seizure of infringing material evidence and means for further investigation.

Comparing statements of Mr. Duong Thanh Loc in the report and working minutes on November 24, 2021, the transportation route was recorded on the positioning seal system and the route of the truck 43C-13260 provided by Duc Long Logistics Co., Ltd., customs officers identified discrepancies between the timelines and parking locations, especially at locations with long stopping and parking times.

Through the process of verification and investigation, Cha Lo Customs determined that, after completing customs procedures at Da Nang Port Customs Branch, MB Logistics Co., Ltd. had arbitrarily broken Customs Seal HQ/20.0685419. Through the declaration of Mr. Duong Thanh Loc and the route of positioning seal DNA057, it was confirmed that MB Logistics Co., Ltd. studied in advance, worked with many people in Da Nang and Quang Binh to remove seal DNA057 on container TCLU9282412 and reattach it to another vehicle to bypass the Customs force. The company consumed the goods under customs supervision and reattached the customs seal on the container.
