Morgan car import to China The process of importing Morgan cars has now begun in earnest. On the 11th March the 6 Morgan cars, which comprise the first commercial consignment, docked in Tianjin after some 42 days at sea. On 19th March Erika and I traveled to Tianjin to drive the cars out of the containers. The Customs port is a vast warehouse complex on a spit in the Bohai sea. There are rows of cars waiting for clearing, or collection from this tax free zone. Vehicle Identification Number on the chassis of the cars. Modern-day Vehicle Identification Number systems are based on two related standards, originally issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 1979 and 1980; ISO 3779 and ISO 3780, respectively. Compatible but somewhat different implementations of these ISO standards have been adopted by the European Union and the United States of America. Apparently China appears to be adopting the VIN used by the USA, and we may have to recalculate all the VIN's for our cars.
