Saigon Newport Corporation and enterprises that manage the ports where the goods are transported to are responsible for monitoring and reporting the situation of goods to the local customs sub-department to grasp information, and at the same time, take responsibility before the law in cases where goods are smuggled into the country, without going through customs procedures.
