China imposes 24 hour rule for shippers

on 1 January the Chinese government officially introduced a new rule covering imports and exports through all ports apart from Hong Kong and Macau.  Ocean carriers must electronically submit a manifest of all goods at least 24 hours before loading.  Chinese Customs will then advise the carrier whether the goods are accepted.  If the authorities in China do not agree to the manifest, then the goods do not have permission to move.  Freight forwarders need to re-think their shipping procedures and advise customers accordingly.  If the shipment is rejected or Customs demand an inspection of the goods, there is great potential for delay.  So it is advisable to add more than 24 hours to the schedule to allow for this; carriers are being advised to submit the manifest at least two days earlier than required.
