CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The reporter learned from Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport that in response to the severe form of the international pandemic, Jiangbei Airport has entered into the normalized prevention and control mode of comprehensive disinfection by disinfecting the whole board first and then the single piece from six sides and disinfecting hundreds of tons of international cargo every day to guard the “air gateway” of Chongqing.
At 12:00 am, the international cargo apron at Chongqing Jiangbei Airport is still lit up. One by one, all-cargo planes landed smoothly and docked, where airport ground service, customs and border guards were waiting for loading and unloading, checking and disinfecting...
The relevant person in charge of Chongqing Airport Group introduced that prevent the risk of importation of COVID-19 through imported containers, their contents and outer packaging, the airport ground service has started an all-round, three-dimensional and multi-frequency disinfection mode of “disinfecting the whole board first and then the single piece from six sides” to ensure that the epidemic prevention and control network is firmly established and tightly woven. Moreover, Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport has opened a special channel for cold-chain cargo and set up a special operation area for epidemic prevention and control.
“Comprehensive disinfection is already carried out on a regular basis.” The person in charge introduced that each piece of cargo unloaded from the international cargo plane will be subjected to the first round of manual spraying and disinfection work on the exterior of the cargo on the container board before it is put into storage. This was followed by a second round of disinfection of the goods from all six sides, sorted by size of goods. All disinfected goods must be labelled with a “surface disinfected” label before they can be stored.
For international express cargo, it is transferred to the International Express Center of the airport for sorting by a dedicated vehicle. The ground service company has also specially purchased three cargo spray disinfection machines to ensure that every side of the express cargo is exposed to the disinfection solution to achieve “no dead ends” disinfection.
Since the outbreak, the demand for freight from major companies has increased rather than decreased. Especially in international aviation, international cargo from around the world such as auto parts, medical equipment and accessories, chips and e-commerce goods are more than 100 tons per day, and imported international express shipments are around 9,000 pieces.
There are currently 19 regular international (regional) cargo routes to Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport to meet the demand for cargo, with access to four continents and an average of more than 40 international cargo flights entering each week. Its imports of international goods are mostly automotive, medical, e-commerce and other goods that are closely related to the economic development and the lives of people in Chongqing.
Furthermore, Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport has also implemented stricter prevention and control measures, including closed-loop management for dedicated security staff, regular nucleic acid inspections, and full-process disinfection of passenger cargo, which not only protects the safety of imported cargo, but also builds a secure wall of epidemic prevention and control for the basic livelihood of the public.
