In 2016, besides resulting in processing used automobile tires, the processing of stagnant goods, Haiphong Customs timely prevented and handled multiple shipments of unqualified imports, contributed to minimize the risk of environmental pollution, many of which are related to food items.
It could be mentioned as the destruction to 61,000 kg of "chicken wing” product, frozen "chicken legs"; destruction of 40,480 kg damaged soybean oil, is no longer valid; more than 509,000 kg sunflower seeds moldy, rotten ...
