According to the Quang Tri Customs Department, on average, there are 177 turns of trucks applied load reduction, 108 turns of passenger cars and 64 turns of trucks of all kinds operating on Highway 9 from Lao Bao-Dong Ha and vice versa.

Notably, most of the vehicles that have applied load reduction showing signs of smuggling and illegally transporting goods with great value and quantity with dangerous methods and tricks.

To avoid the inspection and control of the competent forces, the subjects often change the time, route, location, and vary the use of vehicles to transport with very impulsive and dangerous tricks. Many subjects control means of transport (trucks applied load reduction) to run at high speeds, disobey orders of the customs authority and are ready to fight the Customs forces, even threatening to attack Customs officials (and relatives) when goods were seized.

Facing the above situation, to effectively combat smuggling and illegal transport of goods on Route 9, Quang Tri Customs Department has issued many documents to strengthen inspection and control in the customs management area and directly give directives in specific times and cases.

Heads of unit performing anti-smuggling tasks are required to enhance the role of the head; each official, Party member and employee should uphold their sense of responsibility in the fight against smuggling; have specific plans to promote reconnaissance, closely grasping information of the management area, establishing dossiers and key subjects to have plans for fighting, searching and strictly handling.

In the early days of August, the Customs Enforcement Team and the Anti-Drug Enforcement Team (Quang Tri Customs Department) carried out professional measures of customs enforcement.

Through inspection, Customs forces discovered 10,000 packs (20 cigarettes/pack) of Hero Filter Kings cigarettes and 1,000 packs (20 cigarettes/pack) of No 555 cigarettes.
