Customs Service acknowledged problems with the Far East border checkpoints


The development of exports to the Far East is hampered by the state of the checkpoints. Now from 80, working in the region, only eight are ready to work around the clock. This problem is especially urgent for the Primorsky Territory, First Deputy Head of the Far Eastern Customs Administration Sergey Fyodorov told Primorskaya Gazeta.
Effective operation of the Free Port of Vladivostok at the moment is hampered by the state of checkpoints. Only eight of the Far Eastern 80 can pass loads in a round-the-clock mode. Especially, it concerns the land border: despite a number of simplified customs procedures, the points themselves are not able to skip the volume of cargo that the Free Port regime assumes.
However, according to the first deputy head of DVTU Sergey Fedorov, Rosgranitsa and customs are taking a number of steps to solve the problem.
- This year we have reconstructed a number of checkpoints, among them - Zarubino and Vladivostok seaport. Now most of the shipments arriving and departing by sea are mostly made out at night. The land border still does not reach the initially stated standards of work, - said Sergey Fedorov.
In addition to the reconstruction of checkpoints, customs officers have simplified a number of procedures. In particular, now only six documents are required for processing export cargo.
- Now the process takes about one minute. Such a decision helped to increase the number of missed goods, - says the expert.
