China News Agency, Shanghai, January 12 (Reporter Jiang Yu) Statistics released by major bonded fuel supply companies in Shanghai on the 12th show that in 2021, the fuel bunkering volume of bonded ships at Shanghai Port will exceed 3.5 million tons, a record high.

  It is understood that the supply of marine fuel oil is an important part of the comprehensive maritime services for international ships.

In 2021, the container throughput of Shanghai Port will exceed 47 million TEUs, ranking first in the world for 12 consecutive years, but there is still a lot of room for improvement in the comprehensive maritime service level of ships sailing internationally.

Taking marine fuel oil supply as an example, Shanghai Port's marine fuel oil supply in 2019 was more than 2 million tons, only 5% of Singapore's.

  Since 2020, the International Maritime Organization has stipulated that the sulfur content in marine fuel oil will be limited to 0.50%, and the global marine fuel oil has entered a low-sulfur era.

As the main department for the supervision of ship bonded fuel oil in the Shanghai Customs District, Hongkou Customs has promoted relevant reforms in response to the needs of the market and enterprises, so that the ship-supplied fuel oil warehouse has the dual functions of export supervision warehouse and bonded warehouse at the same time. If you enter the export supervision warehouse in the way of general trade, the tax will be refunded, and it will become "bonded oil".

  According to Shi Gang, chief of the Bonded and Exemption Supervision Section of Hongkou Customs, the customs has accelerated the implementation of the policy of "export tax rebates for bunkering fuel oil for ships on international voyages", which has enriched the sources of bonded oil products for ships and increased the choice of channels and supplies.

For China's oil refining enterprises, it has enriched the product structure, increased sales channels and income, and is conducive to improving the market competitiveness of China's bonded fuel oil.

  According to reports, in order to promote the implementation of the cross-port supply mode of bonded fuel oil, Shanghai Customs has strengthened the integration and coordination with Hangzhou Customs and other customs in the Yangtze River Delta, and vigorously supports the development of the direct supply business of bonded oil across the customs area, so as to create a "mobile fuel oil" in the Yangtze River Delta region. stand".

  In the cross-customs direct supply mode, the oil supply company only needs to declare to the customs at the place of departure once for the oil out of the warehouse, and the oil supply ship can directly supply oil to the international sailing ships, avoiding the secondary logistics links such as transshipment and the resulting problems. The cost of distribution, warehousing and other expenses is significantly reduced, and the loss caused by the secondary storage of oil is also reduced.
