The Guiyang customs in Guiyang, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, recently began providing special door-to-door services to speed up customs clearances for companies, as well as providing targeted policies and solving any problems they have with their exports.
Guiyang customs has established a fast-track channel for fresh and perishable foods to help expand exports of special products, such as breeding sturgeon – the fish that produce caviar. It has also provided bespoke services, including one-on-one guidance and preferential declarations for inspections and quarantines, to enable products to process customs clearance procedures quickly.
To help Guizhou tea in its bid to go global, the city's customs office is providing targeted policies for each product and its companies, to help the businesses to employ policies according to their operational needs.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Guiyang customs learned of the various needs and difficulties of its resident companies, leading to it rolling out the door-to-door service. As a result, Guian New Area customs – which is affiliated to Guiyang customs – was able to help a maintenance firm, for example, to choose a qualified solid waste disposals supply which handled its cross-region solid waste disposals procedures.
The disposals process fell under the supervision of Guian New Area customs, who helped the company reduce operational costs from 18,000 yuan ($2,672) to 1,500 yuan and shaved four days off the administrative process.
