FedEx has announced an upgrade to its cross-border e-commerce export services in South China. The company says it is now using policies developed during a cross-border e-commerce B2B export supervision pilot program, implemented by China Customs. As a result, FedEx’s Guangzhou and Xiamen Gateways are now offering rapid customs services for cross-border e-commerce companies’ B2B export shipments.
According to the company, the policies apply to cross-border e-commerce B2B direct export and export to overseas warehouses. FedEx customers, after registering and system docking at their local customs offices, can now use a number of facilitation measures for their export goods, such as simplified declaration, priority inspection and return account management. They also no longer need to pack goods individually and stick air waybills on separate packages; instead, they can export in batches.
“FedEx has been fully supporting and cooperating with Customs in various innovation and reform programs,” said Eddy Chan, senior vice president of FedEx China. “We are committed to providing convenient and efficient customs clearance services for Chinese cross-border e-commerce enterprises. That is why we are jointly promoting the high-quality development of China’s cross-border e-commerce industry with China Customs. The new model will be especially beneficial to small and medium-sized enterprises, which generally export large quantities of goods but at low unit prices. The new clearance method can further reduce their logistics costs, improve customs clearance efficiency and help them expand to overseas markets more rapidly.”
