2. Sea transportation plus card (sea transportation + truck transportation) : double clearance does not include duty, and the duty is paid according to the tax sheet. After customs clearance is completed at the port, the goods are transported to the destination by train and then delivered to the corresponding Amazon warehouse by truck.
