Ningbo Customs Seizes Consignment of Counterfeit Auto Parts

Ningbo Customs, in a recent operation, intercepted a shipment declared as “bearings and pulleys,” revealing a stash of counterfeit auto parts. Marked with trademarks Koyo and KYMCO, these parts, upon verification, were confirmed as counterfeit by the copyright holders. The seizure, totaling 4,950 units, highlights the dangers posed by counterfeit bearings, which often compromise safety standards and risk equipment failure.

The operation served as a stark warning to counterfeiters, signaling accountability and the commitment to combatting counterfeit products.
