The total penalty for administrative violation was 372 million vnd, total tax generating after scanning was 487 million vnd.
One noteworthy point regarding the operation of the container scanners at Hai Phong Customs is the relocation of mobile scanners from Green Port to Nam Hai Dinh Vu Port. The reason is the construction of the overpass at Nguyen Binh Khiem Street so it causes difficulties for transporting goods to the Green Port area.
The leader of Risk Management Division said that since the transfer (on 22/5/2017) until now, the mobile scanners system has scanned 2,769 containers.
