HÀ NỘI — A new warning function for cargo congestion at border gates was launched on the national single window portal on Thursday, said the General Department of Vietnam Customs.
Information on vehicle traffic at border gates is now publicly updated in real-time on the portal at vnsw.gov.vn.
The status of vehicles at the border gate is shown with four levels: red (highest warning level with over 5,000 vehicles), orange (from over 1,000 to 5,000), yellow (from over 500 to 1,000), and green (under 500).
State agencies, businesses, and drivers can access the portal using computers or smart devices.
The function has been implemented by the general department and the Ministry of Finance in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport’s Directorate for Roads of Vietnam.
It aims to help prevent congestion of goods and vehicles at border gates, save logistics costs, and minimise related damage and risks. — VNS
