Currently, Huu Nghi International Border Gate and Tan Thanh Border Gate, where have the largest volume of vehicles transporting fresh fruit, have worked on Saturday and Sunday.

It is forecasted that the following months will be the peak harvest of many types of domestic agricultural products, especially fresh fruits from the southern provinces, leading to the increase in the number of trucks carrying export goods to Huu Nghi International Border Gate and Tan Thanh Border Gate.

Therefore, in order to ensure regular and continuous circulation of import-export activities, Lang Son Provincial People's Committee said that the official launching of specialized roads for goods transport and customs clearance crossings at Huu Nghi International Border Gate, especially for Vietnam's exported agricultural products and fresh fruits.

Accordingly, the Vietnamese side agreed to officially confirm the official operation of specialized roads for goods transport and customs clearance crossings at Huu Nghi International Border Gate.

The representative of Lang Son Customs Department said that procedures for operation of specialized roads for goods transport and customs clearance crossings under the nature of international border gate are regulated fully.

Accordingly, specialized roads for goods transport at marker area 1088/2-1089 has been piloted since 2019 and is assigned to Tan Thanh Customs Branch for management. Therefore, after this route is officially announced, Lang Son Customs Department proposed to continue assigning Tan Thanh Customs Branch to perform customs management in this area.
