Notification to Customers regarding Shenzhen West Port Code Unification

2016-12-23
 

Dear valued customers,

According to China Merchants Shenzhen Western Terminals’ plan, Shekou Container Terminals Ltd.(UN port code CNSHK), Chiwan Container Terminal Co., Ltd.(UN port code CNCWN) will uniformly use UN port name: Shekou and port code: CNSHK from January 1, 2017.

Owing to the integration of customs and CIQ services among SCT and CCT, local customs declaration will not be affected. However, please be kindly noted below changes involved:

1. POL & POD will be displayed as ‘SHEKOU’ for shipments loaded or discharged at previous Chiwan Port from January 1, 2017.

2. ‘SHEKOU’ will replace ‘CHIWAN’ to be displayed on vessel schedule from January 1, 2017.

3. If you’re using code ‘CNCWN’ for CHIWAN port in EDI transmission with our company, we suggest you to unify its port code to ‘CNSHK’ according to the time plan mentioned above. If you need transition period or have specific code conversion requirements, please contact us as soon as possible to determine relevant solution.

If you have further inquiries, please contact our local sales representatives or customer service representatives.
