Reuters, citing three coal traders who were told by customs officials of the halt, reported that Chinese customs is no longer permitting coal cargoes to enter the country at the ports of Jingtang and Caofeidian. Customs officials at the port of Jingtang, one of China's biggest coking coal import points, and the neighbouring port of Caofeidian said they would halt customs declearation services from July 16 until further notice. No reason was given for the service halt at the ports, which are located on the Bohai Bay coast of China's Hebei province.

An official with the general business department of the customs bureau at Jingtang, which operates under the customs office of the city of Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei province, confirmed there was a halt in customs declarations at the port.

The official, who declined to be named as he is not authorised to talk to the media, said that "We cannot handle declaration business for imported goods at this moment because we don't have a tax account."
