In mid-March, the Chongqing Customs Anti-smuggling Bureau investigated and found an unusual logistics clue between Guangxi and Anhui through Chongqing. Under the unified coordination of the Anti-smuggling Bureau of the General Administration of Customs, the Customs Anti-Smuggling Bureaus of Chongqing, Nanning and Hefei have locked a smuggling criminal gang of wild animals and their products within a short period of time.

After investigation, the suspect Song ordered a batch of pangolin scales from abroad and smuggled them into the country from the border. After the goods are transferred to Nanning, they are shipped to Chongqing through logistics, and then transferred to Anhui and other places for profit.


At present, the Nanning, Chongqing, and Hefei Customs Anti-smuggling Bureaus are stepping up the investigation work of the case, striving to dig deeper into the line and expand the outcomes.
