Shanghai Customs has set five categories (AA, A, B, C and D) to evaluate and classify various Customs Brokers according to their performance, compliance with Customs rules and regulations, their business organization and management process as well as their Customs inspection ratio and other performance KPI records.
Although OOCL Logistics’ Customs brokerage service has been in operation for just over one year, the Shanghai Customs authorities recognized the excellent quality of the service provided, and upgraded OOCL Logistics’ classification to “Grade A” from “Grade B”. This is the highest grade awarded by Customs for a Customs Brokerage Agent so far.
“We are delighted to receive this new ranking. Under the “A” category, OOCL Logistics is capable of providing even more convenient and efficient Customs clearance service for our customers in China, with a lower inspection ratio and speedier cargo clearance. It is a great endorsement for our professional Customs brokerage team by Shanghai Customs,” said Erxin Yao, managing director of OOCL Logistics (China).
The ranking provides various benefits for OOCL Logistics’ as well as OOCL’s valued customers. Companies ranked in the top category of A or AA can submit declarations to local (inland) Customs while obtaining clearance at ports. They are also able to handle Customs clearance before export cargo enters the Customs supervision area, and are given priority in on-site Customs declaration, inspection and release procedures. They would also enjoy expedited Customs clearance during non-office hours and holidays.
