The Anping Port Sea Cargo Expediting Center (SCEC), operating from Anping Port’s Transit Shed No. 1 since April 2016, is the only sea-freight expediting service center available to serve the needs of central and southern Taiwan. The TIPC-managed center is closely integrated with the shipping schedule of the nearby Port of Kaohsiung, with regular, daily transit schedules ready to quickly handle expedited sea cargo import and export shipments.

A dedicated conveyor network and x-ray inspection system safely and quickly process all imports and exports through customs. Furthermore, recent revisions to Taiwan’s Regulations Governing Customs Clearance Procedures for Sea Express Consignments are set to make related shipments even more convenient and easy.

Responding to the new terms of article 7 in the revised Regulations Governing Customs Clearance Procedures for Sea Express Consignments, the Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) announced that it welcomes all sea freight service providers involved in related forwarding and cargo expediting services to expand their sea freight expediting business interests. Moreover, those that are not yet licensed customs brokers are still encouraged to partner with a licensed broker and then register as a CA/MOF Kaohsiung Customs sea freight expediter with the Customs Administration.

To help drum up new business for and investment in the Anping Port SCEC, TIPC has announced the “Anping Port SCEC Cargo and Transport Incentives”. These incentives, which target CA/MOF Kaohsiung Customs-registered sea freight expediters and are valid from July 1st, 2017 through December 31st, 2018, cover sea freight cargo shipments and the land-based transport of related shipments. TIPC will handle all related application, approval, and award fund disbursement activities.

Anping Port is conveniently located 145 and 140 nautical miles, respectively, from the Ports of Xiamen and Quanzhou, giving Anping a strong advantage in handling Cross-Strait cargo shipping. TIPC further welcomes vessel operators that are interested in establishing or expanding their Cross-Strait shipping businesses to open new Anping-based routes and thus take advantage of the sea-freight expediting, free trade, specialty agricultural products distribution, and other dynamic facilities in and around Anping Port.
