Kaohsiung Customs Seizes 25,000 Cartons of Smuggled Beer

Not long ago, Kaohsiung Customs (KC) intercepted 12 transshipment containers of smuggled beer at Wharf 63. On November 27, KC successfully seized another 8 transshipment containers of smuggled beer at Wharf 121. According to Kaohsiung Customs, officers found several suspicious containers declared as household goods shipped from Nansha Harbor (CNNSA) to Kota Kinabalu Harbor (MYBKI). Therefore, officers targeted these containers and then carried out inspection as soon as they were unloaded from the vessel.

The inspection turned out to be the discovery of 8 containers of smuggled beer, and only 4 of the containers were slightly disguised with some tissue. The rest were all full of beer. The seizure of smuggled beer was about 25,000 cartons and worth near NT$ 30 millions. These contraband goods were neither listed on the bills of lading nor on the manifests. Thus, the goods were detained pursuant to the Customs Anti-smuggling Act and the Tobacco and Alcohol Administration Act.

In order to protect national tax revenues and the public's health, KC officers remain vigilant and committed to combating smuggling and deterring smugglers from utilizing disguises and fraud to evade alcohol-related tax.
