At the customs service site, the number of enterprises handling business has gradually increased, and most of them are dealing with backlogs of goods. As a supervisory department, Yiwu Customs has set up a “mobile inspection team for order guarantee” through measures such as “7×24” hourly appointment for customs clearance and all-weather inspections, to fully improve supervision and service efficiency, and ensure that the pre-export inspection time is minimized.
According to reports, there are currently 900 vehicles entering and leaving the customs supervision site of Yiwu Port every day, which has returned to the level before the epidemic.
The comprehensive bonded zone is one of the important hubs of Yiwu's foreign trade, and many commodities enter the country from here. After the silence was lifted, the Yiwu Comprehensive Insurance District seized the time window and took the initiative to be the "Second Shopkeeper". In response to the problems encountered by enterprises in the resumption of work and production, the "Comprehensive Insurance Red Sail Online Help Group" was established to provide enterprises with "One company, one policy" and "One company, one specialist" service. Up to now, the resumption rate of enterprises in the zone has reached 100%, and the staff arrival rate has reached 100%.
On August 29th, in the Yiwu Yunming Warehouse of Xingyun Group in the Comprehensive Bonded Zone, a number of packaging lines were running at full capacity for orders. "On the first day of resumption of work, the Comprehensive Bonded Area coordinated express delivery resources for us, and the 40,000 orders that were backlogged during the epidemic were all shipped on the same day." The person in charge of Yunmingcang said that the current average daily order volume is three times the usual, with 4 orders per day Cabinet into warehouse.
In addition to shipping the goods out, foreign trade companies are doing everything possible to grab orders. Merchants in Yiwu are "rushing to the beach" to land on cross-border e-commerce platforms such as Amazon and TikTok, opening up new ways of ordering with new formats.
In the second half of the year, products such as Halloween and Christmas are almost all shipped from Yiwu. Fortunately, everything is still in time.
