CIMC SSC to make Shenzhen Huanggang Port much smarter
Recently, the complex led by Shenzhen CIMC Smart Science & Technology CO., Ltd. (CIMC SSC) won the bid for the EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) of the customs clearance service informatization project of the temporary inspection site for tourists at Shenzhen Huanggang Port. It is one of key projects in the program that is initiated by the State to build the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (Greater Bay Area) and to support Shenzhen’s construction of a pilot socialist zone with Chinese characteristics. As the leading organization of the winning complex, CIMC SSC will provide core informatization system for the project.
The reconstruction of Huanggang Port will last for three years and a half. It will be completed in three stages, namely to build a temporary inspection site for tourists, to remove the old joint inspection buildings, and to construct a new port building. During the reconstruction, the customs clearance of passengers and freight will be not affected. The construction of temporary inspection site has started and will be completed in 10 months. After the temporary customs clearance service site opens to the public, the construction of new port buildings will immediately start. “As a part of the program that is initiated by the State to build the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (Greater Bay Area) and to support Shenzhen’s construction of a pilot socialist zone with Chinese characteristics, reconstruction of Huanggang Port, the reconstruction of Huanggang Port is of significant importance and imposes higher requirements. In particular, customs clearance service informatization project is the core of the construction of the temporary inspection site for tourists, so the competent government authorities has laid down stricter requirements”, said Zhou Haibao, deputy general manager of CIMC SSC.

It also included the 50+ intelligent Internet of Things devices. Since the HZM Bridge opened to the public on October 24, 2018, the 114 intelligent traffic surveillance passages have worked pretty well, reducing the time spent on customs clearance by 8 seconds.
