Bonded warehouse area at Suvarnabhumi airport to be expanded

Thursday, July 5th, 2007

The bonded warehouse area at Suvarnabhumi airport will be expanded and separated from the under-utilised customs-free cargo zone, Deputy Transport Minister Sansern Wongcha-um said.

Existing bonded warehouses managed by Thai Airways (THAI) and Bangkok Flight Services would be enlarged to satisfy growing cargo demand.

The expanded areas would be located north and south of the customs-free zone.

Some shippers complain of problems with the duty-free zone because the electronic Air Cargo Community System, which is supposed to track cargo in the air and on the ground, was unable to link properly with the Customs Department’s software systems.

Customs free zone split up at Suvarnabhumi Airport will be reviewed today

Monday, May 21st, 2007

The government will meet today to debate whether to split the customs-free zone at Suvarnabhumi Airport to help improve operations.

Sansern Wongcha-um, the deputy finance minister, said that drafting a new zoning plan with normal export and import operations separated from the customs-free zone was one possibility to be reviewed by the committee, which is chaired by Interim Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont.

The zone is intended to facilitate imports of raw materials and intermediate products to be processed locally before being re-exported as finished goods. Products entering the free zone are exempt from normal import duties.
