Qingdao Port’s new export regulations take the lead in completing the construction of an automated container terminal standard system
Recently, the "Qingdao Port Automated Container Terminal Standard System" successfully passed the review by external experts, marking that Shandong Port has taken the lead in completing the construction of the "Automated Container Terminal Standard System" in my country, and will more strongly support the development of automated terminals with international advanced technology.
At present, Chinese ports are experiencing a new round of opportunities for technological and industrial transformation. Smart ports represented by automated container terminals have become an important development direction and symbol of modern ports.
Through independent innovation, Shandong Port Automated Container Terminal has formed the core technology and development advantages of my country's automated and unmanned container terminal, which has attracted worldwide attention.
The fully automated terminal represents the most advanced form of container handling in marine ports.
It is understood that the Qingdao Port Automated Container Terminal of Shandong Port is located on the south bank of Qingdao’s Qianwan Port Area. It is planned to build 6 berths in 3 phases. With the efforts of Shandong Port’s “Liangang Innovation Team” with Zhang Liangang as the leader, the first phase of the project Two berths were established in 2013 and put into operation on May 11, 2017. It only took three and a half years to complete the 8-10 years of R&D and construction tasks for foreign terminals.
A fully automated container terminal with independent intellectual property rights has been built, and it has been put into production and profitable that year. It has created world records with an average operating efficiency of 36.2 natural containers/hour and a highest operating efficiency of 44.6 natural containers/hour. The operating efficiency has exceeded traditional manual labor. pier.
The two berths of the second phase of the project started in June 2018 and were put into operation on November 28, 2019. It took 1.5 years to only 1/5 of the construction period of similar terminals in the world, and the construction cost was only 70% of similar foreign terminals.
In addition, the world's first scientific and technological achievements such as the first hydrogen-powered automated rail crane and the use of 5G+ automation technology have completed the evolution from following Europe and the United States to leading the world, providing "Chinese experience" and "Chinese solutions" for the construction and operation of global smart ports.
This system is a standard system in the professional field of automated container terminals proposed and formed by my country’s port companies. It provides a basis for the formulation and revision of the series of standards for container automated terminals. To standard and effective guidance.
In short, great!
New Regulations on Qingdao’s Export Model: Declare before entering Hong Kong from September 1
In order to speed up the efficiency of customs clearance at Qingdao Port, according to the regulations of the General Administration of Customs, starting from September 1, 2020, Qingdao Port will implement the operation mode of declaration before entering the port.
(This mode has two advantages, one is quick release, and the other is quick inspection) After the implementation of the new mode, the station will compare the customer's declaration receipt through the packing list information with the customs and the terminal. And the requirements of the terminal will not be able to enter the port.
But many freight forwarders said that this is not a good model:
Some friends also said that Qingdao Port’s policy is quite pragmatic:
@***The purpose of the municipal government port is to let import and export consignees (especially small and medium-sized enterprises) understand the basic import and export process and timeliness of shipping containers at Qingdao port, so as to supervise the work of service providers; The "advance declaration" that has arrived is just for advocacy, not mandatory.
Frankly speaking, in order to improve the timeliness of customs clearance, many ports across the country force enterprises to declare in advance. Qingdao Customs has adopted a more pragmatic attitude and has not made mandatory requirements. The customs has also been under pressure for assessment. This is something we need to praise!
Friends, please communicate with customers in a timely manner, and ask customers to declare as soon as the packing is completed, so as not to delay the arrival of containers.
