International Freight Shipping | The import & export of Tianjin port to countries and regions along the "Belt and Road" rose 47.4% in the first eight months

International freight shipping news: With 25 years of experience in freight forwarding, Unitex provides a fast and high-quality sea freight service for customers worldwide. On September 27, a batch of goods from China Energy Construction Group E-Commerce Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Nengjian E-Commerce") set off from Tianjin to Kazakhstan by China-Europe Railay Express. This is also the second batch of goods sent by Nengjian E-commerce to the "Belt and Road" this year.
Nengjian E-commerce is responsible for the procurement and transportation of engineering consumables, spare parts, labour protection supplies, and other materials for the overseas projects of China Energy Construction Group. In recent years, ensuring the smooth supply chain and satisfying the stable supply of materials for overseas projects has become an important issue for Nengjian e-commerce.
"Last year, the company successfully applied to become an AEO advanced certification enterprise and enjoyed a number of facilitation measures at home and abroad, which saved us a lot of time and cost and helped us embark on the fast lane of the company's foreign trade development." The company's international business, Zhao Zhiming, senior logistics manager of the department, said.
According to Zhao Zhiming, as an AEO enterprise, it can benefit from advantageous measures such as lower inspection rates and priority inspection, which improves the efficiency of goods export.At the same time, the role of AEO in accelerating the customs clearance of goods in the destination country is also obvious. For example, Kazakhstan has established AEO international mutual recognition with my country, and the local destination port has reduced the time for document review and goods inspection. The previous 7-9 days have been reduced to 3-6 days, which is beneficial for the goods to arrive at the project site in Kazakhstan more quickly. It is expected that the export scale of enterprises this year will further expand, and the export volume will increase by about 20% compared with last year.
Today, AEO has become a "golden signboard" for enterprises to obtain more international business opportunities in the "Belt and Road" market and provides new energy for enterprises to continuously expand trade with "Belt and Road" countries. In recent years, Tianjin Customs has actively strengthened the cultivation of corporate credit and created a multi-level directional counselling of "one enterprise, one policy" through the "online + offline" approach based on the characteristics of the enterprise to help fully understand the AEO policy. Internal control management, information systems, and trade security management are systematically sorted out to help enterprises improve their own standardised management level. At present, 319 enterprises in the Tianjin area have obtained the qualification of customs AEO advanced certification enterprises.
At the same time, the more optimised business environment and more convenient customs clearance efficiency of Tianjin Port have also continuously injected sufficient impetus for enterprises to integrate into the "Belt and Road" market.
Not long ago, in the warehouse of Tomato Products Co., Ltd. in Tianjin, boxes of tomato paste were being packed quickly. This batch of tomato paste will be exported to Benin, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Togo and other countries along the "Belt and Road" through Tianjin Port. These countries are also the newly added exporters for the company this year.
"Affected by the COVID pandemic and the international situation, the original export market for ketchup has been affected to a certain extent, and the export volume has declined." said the person in charge of the relevant business of the company. "After understanding, the customs staff provided us with guidance on the laws, regulations, and technical standards of the importing country; export inspection and quarantine; etc., and introduced in detail the customs' "advance declaration" and "arrival direct loading" and other convenient measures to help us reasonably arrange export plans and win orders from new markets. Since the beginning of this year, thanks to the new export market, our export sales have increased by 12.5% compared with the same period last year.
In order to help enterprises develop overseas markets, Tianjin Customs actively implements policies, conducts in-depth enterprise research, actively understands industrial needs, carries out technical trade measure policy publicity and case sharing, and guides enterprises to optimise product export processes and enhance product competitiveness; further optimise customs clearance processes; and innovate supervision. improve customs clearance efficiency; continue to promote convenient customs clearance measures such as "direct pick-up by ship," "direct loading upon arrival," "first release and then inspection," and "instant inspection on arrival" to realise the "instant inspection" of export territorial inspection; to make export territorial inspection more efficientThe goods can be "zero waiting" or "waiting for goods to ship".
