Thousands of scrap containers to be re-exported

Approximately 1,100 containers of waste at Cat Lai Port in Ho Chi Minh City , which failed to meet Vietnam’s import requirements, will be re-exported in the second quarter of this year, the Customs Department of Ho Chi Minh City said.
Customs officers said that after four months of checking scrap containers left at Cat Lai Port, they have classified roughly 1,100 containers which have been imported into Vietnam’s port from 2018 but no enterprises came to receive their commodities.
It took a lot of time for state competent agencies to sort them in a bid to protect environment.
Before, in early 2020, the city the Customs Department has forced to re-export of 25 scrap containers left at Cat Lai Port. The containers was transported by a ship company which was hired to bring the containers into the Southeast Asian country.
