On July 14, a man said that he had to travel more than 3,200 kilometers from Xishuangbanna, Yunnan to Tangshan, Hebei, and the toll required more than 1,800 yuan. He suddenly realized that his pickup was a truck, and he could take the green pass by pulling fruit, saving tolls. So he bought 12 boxes of mangoes and drove on the road.
A staff member in the uniform of the Yunnan Exchange Pu’er Management Office is inspecting the vehicle and cargo, and the electronic display at the toll station shows a charge of 0 yuan.
On the afternoon of the 19th, the reporter contacted Mr. Xu, who had returned to Tangshan, Hebei. “It took more than three days to travel from Xishuangbanna to Tangshan, and the high-speed travel during this period was free.” Mr. Xu said he and his wife would take a self-driving tour every year. This time, they chose to start from Hebei to Xinjiang via Tibet to Yunnan and return to Hebei. The journey is more than 24,000 kilometers, which lasted 40 days, and costs more than 40,000 yuan for refueling.
“I went to Yunnan and saw that the mangoes are big and sweet. It is difficult to buy this big green mango in the north, so I thought of bringing some special products to my relatives and friends.” Mr. Xu said, he discussed with his wife buying more. The pickup truck he drives is a cargo truck. After consulting with the transportation department, he confirmed that if the cargo capacity meets the national requirements, he could take the Green Pass to save 1,800 yuan in tolls, so he bought 12 boxes of mangoes.
Mr. Xu’s wife introduced that they bought a total of 1,200 yuan of mangoes this time, a total of more than 200 Kilograms, less than 6 yuan per Kilogram.
Mr. Xu said that he originally planned to give some mangoes to relatives and friends when he got home, and eat the rest by himself, but as soon as the media reported, many friends saw it. Before he returned to Hebei, some friends sent messages that they would come to his house to get the mango. “When I got home, more than 200 kilograms of mangoes were not enough.” Mr. Xu said that it took more than three days to travel from Yunnan to Hebei, but the mangoes were well preserved and not bad.
