Phase I of the project will see another two state-of-the-art computer-controlled export warehouses built, each covering an area of over two hectares, one to open next year, with the second following in 2011.
As with the present warehousing at SHICD, CCTV systems will be installed in each of the new warehouses to enable cargo owners to make full-view inspection of their cargo.
Preparation work for the 25-hectare Phase II project is also well underway, which, together with Phase I, will provide a total area of 60 hectares to become the largest warehousing facility in South China.
SHICD is one of the first facilities to offer immediate tax rebates once export cargo enters the warehouse. It also is one of the city’s first 24-hour export supervisory warehouses and the only “inland port” in the Dapeng Customs Zone that provides on-site declaration services, allowing ‘one-stop’ customs clearance.
Export cargo from the SHICD will be transported directly to Yantian Port for immediate loading, further simplifying customs clearance procedures. Additionally, the facility also acts as an empty container depot for the port.
