The Bureau of Customs (BOC) Davao and its sub-ports—Dadiangas, Parang, and Mati—have collected P13.7 billion in the first half of 2020, 23% more than the P11.135-billion target revenue for the period.

Collection from the Liquidation and Billing Unit and from public auction amounted to P134.527 million and P18.268 million, respectively, BOC-Davao said in a statement. From January to June, the port apprehended an estimated P83 million worth of illegally imported cigarettes.

For the month of June alone, BOC Davao took in P1.963 billion, 10% over the year-on-year figure of P1.784 billion.

“In the midst of this pandemic, we will continue to serve the public ensuring that the movements of goods will remain unhampered while further strengthening our border security and inspection protocols,” BOC Davao district collector Atty. Erastus Sandino Austria said.

Davao is one of BOC’s 11 collection districts that were able to hit their January-June targets. These include San Fernando, Legazpi, Cebu, Tacloban, Cagayan De Oro, Zamboanga, Subic, Clark, Aparri, and Limay.
