Hutchison Ports Thailand’s A3 Terminal Selected to Pilot Thai Customs’ Pre-Arrival Processing System

Hutchison Ports Thailand recently held an event to celebrate the Thai Customs Department selecting their A3 terminal to be the pilot terminal for the launch of the Customs Pre Arrival Processing System for full import containers.

The Pre-Arrival Processing System has been accepted by the World Trade Organization and World Customs Organization and provides a convenient platform for importers to send electronic data in advance so they are able to have their cargo processed and moved out of the terminal once their cargo is discharged from the vessel.

This reduces the time required to process and clear import cargoes into Thailand, and also helps to support Thailand’s potential in becoming a regional and international sea transportation hub.

Hutchison Ports Thailand says that they place great emphasis on the use of information technology to improve their overall service levels to port users and fully supports this new and exciting initiative from the Thai Customs Department. The Pre-Arrival Processing system will provide an accurate, timely and value added service to importers and all relevant government agencies.

In addition, Hutchison Ports Thailand also mentioned that they will use the Customs’ Pre-Arrival Service at their new D Terminal, which is scheduled to commence initial operations next month.
