In order to further optimize the port business environment and reduce the transportation cost of import and export enterprises in Wuhu, on May 24, Vice Mayor He Dong went to Wuhu Port and Comprehensive Bonded Zone to investigate the customs clearance facilitation work.
Through field visits, listening to reports and other methods, He Dong got a detailed understanding of the customs clearance procedures of enterprises, port capacity, freight rates, comprehensive bonded zone business, etc., and had discussions with relevant units and import and export enterprises on how to optimize the customs clearance procedures and reduce the transportation costs of enterprises.
He Dong approved and appreciated the continuously improved efficiency of Wuhu’s import and export customs clearance.
