Cross-border e-commerce goes on rise in Tongzhou
Nantong Airport Industrial Park is a pilot of the "9610" cross-border e-commerce export supervision mode of the Nanjing Customs District, and the first park in Nantong to carry out the mode. It has attracted 40 cross-border e-commerce enterprises.
Since the pilot project was carried out in 2015, the park has become a cross-border e-commerce center, a place for inspection of assembly lines, and a cross-border e-commerce public service platform in succession.
By the end of 2019, the cross-border e-commerce export volume and value of the Nantong Airport Industrial Park increased by 58.4 and 508.8 percent compared with 2016.
Since the customs clearance on cross-border e-commerce resumed on May 27, the industrial park has actively organized and carried out the "9710" and "9810" business pilots based on the results of the "9610" export mode, to further expand cross-border e-commerce channels.
To date, the total cross-border e-commerce exports have exceeded $14.33 million, $4.43 million of which is the amount of the "9610" mode.
Wu Chao, a person in charge of cross-border e-commerce in the industrial park, explained that "9610", "9710" and "9810" are three new supervision modes for cross-border e-commerce in China. The "9610" mode is suitable for B2C (Business-to-Consumer) exports; the "9710" is suitable for B2B (Business-to-Business) exports and the "9810" is applicable to cross-border e-commerce export of goods in overseas warehouses.
The first "9810" export trial order in the airport industrial park was completed on July 17 and the first "9710" export order was cleared by the customs on Aug 6.
So far, Tongzhou district has fully completed the trial and exploration of the new cross-border export supervision modes, and gradually incorporated them into the daily customs clearance business, forming a cross-border customs clearance system integrating B2C and B2B together with the previous "9610" mode.
