Chongqing - Chongqing's Comprehensive Bonded Zone at Lianglu Guoyuan Port recently received its first convoy of 20 parallel-imported vehicles, marking a significant milestone in the zone's advancement in the automotive industry.

Port officials revealed that the parallel-imported vehicles underwent meticulous unboxing, statutory inspections, and thorough testing on designated lines upon arrival. Carefully supervised, they were transported by trailer to the Guoyuan Port Comprehensive Bonded Zone for storage, transfer, and distribution before reaching markets nationwide from Chongqing.

This sets the stage for a comprehensive automotive trade and spare parts center, signaling a pivotal moment in Chongqing's automotive sector.
