Vietnam Joined The Ban On Disarmies And Began To Restrict Imports In Mid June
- Jun 05, 2018 -

Since the ban on import of foreign waste, TanCang-CaiMepInternationalTerminal (TanCang-CaiMepInternationalTerminal, TCIT) and TanCang-CatLaiTerminal (CatLai) in Xingang, Vietnam, are almost drowned by foreign waste, causing congestion in the port area. Based on this, Vietnam decided to suspend imports of waste plastics in mid June, while limiting the import of waste paper.

According to statistics, in the 1 quarter of this year, American traders exported about 157 thousand tons of waste paper to Vietnam, an increase of 203.51% over 2017. In order to prevent entry of foreign garbage, Vietnam began to conduct 100% checks on waste paper and waste plastics.

According to Lloyd 'sLoadingList, a letter from the Lloyd' sLoadingList, Vietnam, wrote that these restrictions were aimed at maintaining the quality of the port service and improving the import and export business of the enterprise.

The letter continued that since 2018, the Vietnamese container terminal had handled thousands of foreign refuse containers, which led to the "insufficient supply" of Kailai port, while the congestion of the port of Kailai led to more than 1000 containers left at the jams international port.

The company said the port congestion not only has a negative impact on the operation and business of the wharf, but also affects the interests of the ship company and its customers.

Therefore, after June 15th, if the container ship is to discharge the cargo at TCIT or TCTT wharf, it is required to provide a valid license and a written promise of the date of delivery before the ship arrives at the port, otherwise the cargo will not be allowed to be unloaded.

From June 25th to October 15th, the Jay international pier in Xingang, Vietnam, has stopped accepting containers of waste plastic from other ports, but the port will continue to receive imported containers of waste paper if the customer can provide an effective import license and a written commitment to the date of the delivery.

At present, there is no room for importing materials in Vietnam port. At the same time, because of China's prohibition of foreign waste imports, a large amount of foreign waste is transported to the main port of Vietnam, which has caused a lot of delay in the wharf. The above measures to suspend the import of waste plastics coincide with the current situation of the port area. It is reported that the shipping company has begun to talk with its customers about the change of Vietnam port.

He said: "after the notification of the port of Kailai and the quay in Vietnam, he will take the following measures to deal with the waste plastic and paper imports from the port of Hu Zhiming. Since June 1st, the container unloading the port will not be barred to Kailai port. The shipper must complete all necessary procedures to ensure that it can be delivered at TCIT, TCTT or TanCang-HiepPhuoc port. That is to say, only the container that meets the response conditions can unload at port Kailai, that is, to provide an effective license and a written promise of the date of delivery before the ship is in port. If the above two conditions are not met, the container will be transported directly to the port of Mumei to discharge the goods and the customers must clear the containers directly at the TCIT or TCTT ports. "

Since June 15th, containers for unloading at TCIT and TCTT ports also need to meet the above two conditions; from June 10th to September 30th, waste plastics are suspended in Kailai port; June 25th to October 15th, waste plastics are suspended at TCIT and TCTT port; whether the future plastic waste is accepted depends on the relevant ports. Check.

It is reported that since July 2017, China has announced to the world that it will no longer accept 24 kinds of imported solid waste, such as waste plastic, waste paper, waste slag, abandoned textiles, waste slag and so on. Over the past 20 years, about half of the world's recyclables have been shipped to China. As the January 2018 ban came into force, the foreign solid waste, commonly known as "Ocean Garbage", had to "seek another way out", leading to a large amount of foreign waste transferred to other countries.
