Customs clearance for Ecuadorian shrimp in Chinese ports has accelerated in W14. Initially slowed down by the "sodium metabisulfite" incident, many containers in ports required thorough inspection, taking about 15 days. Import declarations for aquatic products from certain Ecuadorian enterprises must include reports demonstrating qualified sodium metabisulfite detection. With increased staffing, customs clearance now takes about seven days.
