Transferring the Ka Long border gate area, bonded warehouses, and export goods inspection locations managed by Customs Inspection - Supervision Team No. 1 to Customs Inspection - Supervision Team No. 2.

To branch also balance and adjust the payroll of civil servants and workers of teams/working groups to suit functions, tasks, and management requirements after transferring tasks and management areas; transferring the task of post-audit of tax refund to the Import-Export Goods Procedures Team.

In addition, the transfer of documents in relevant customs records for import and export goods declarations which are classified to Red Channel to the focal point as Import-Export Goods Procedures Team to manage, complete, and store records as stipulated instead of transferring them directly to the General Affairs Team.

As noted by the Branch, the transfer of the task of receiving and approving independent transport declarations from the Import-Export Goods Procedures Team to the Customs Inspection-Supervision Team No.1 is suitable and has high support from the business community.

According to Mr. Ha Van Trung, a representative of FAS LOGISTICS Trading Co., Ltd., the registration of an independent shipping declaration at Customs Inspection and Supervision Team No. 1 helps to bring the implementation of customs procedures for goods in transit to one point, from the start of registering the List of Road Imported Goods, registering the independent transport declaration to bringing the goods into the centralized inspection location and confirming that the goods can be transported are implemented smoothly, helping to save time and facilitating businesses.
