Wheat from Kazakhstan passed inspection and quarantine on Feb 25 at the Xi’an International Trade and Logistics Park, marking Shaanxi’s first international order for grain to enter China through the Xi’an Logistics Park.

A ceremony was held to commemorate the grain import with Xu Hualiang, director of the Shaanxi Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, in attendance. Xu issued a certificate of entry goods inspection and quarantine to Wilmar International Limited, owner of the cargo, at the ceremony.

Pan Yaqin, an official from the Shaanxi Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, said that seven experts have joined the quarantine and inspection team to assist in the inspection of weeds and insects on wheat crops.

Weighing 1,795 tons, the imported grain was stored in 100 containers and transported to the Xi’an Logistics Park from Sorokovaya, Kazakhstan by train.

According to Gan Diquan, a staff member from Wilmar, it used to take 45 days to transport wheat from Central Asia countries to Tianjing port. Now the transport time has been cut to 7 days by train which helps to ensure the quality of the wheat upon arrival.

The Xi’an Logistics Park has been designated as a port for grain and meat imports. To create a user-friendly environment for companies, the park has cut red tape and streamlined many procedures, allowing businesses to file paperwork in just one place.
