The innovative mode of cooperation between the railway department and Customs has greatly improved the operation efficiency of the freight train service between China and Europe, ensuring the stability of global industrial and supply chains.

In Shenyang of Northeastern China's Liaoning province, Customs inspection operations have been carried out at a railway hub tailored for the China-Europe freight train, aiming to reduce Customs inspection and clearance time.

It is the first of such measures in China, according to China Railway Shenyang Group and Shenyang Customs.

"We developed China's first information collection system while loading the containers on track with the railway department and the logistics center," said Wang Huan, an official from Shenyang Customs.

In the past, it was usually Customs duty to collect information when the containers were "on the floor". The containers first would be transported to a special yard tailored for Customs to carry out Customs inspection. After the inspection was done, Customs released the containers and then those containers would be transported to the railway freight yard by truck. The process took about 6 to 7 hours for one container, according to Wang.
