China’s eastern city of Suzhou has started co-operation with the Customs at Shanghai’s Pudong Airport and Wuxi airport to offer one-stop clearance for international express cargo, Xinhua reports.

A customs clearance express cargo facility, which has been built in Suzhou, recently started operations. Local shippers and freight forwarders now only need to go through clearance procedures at the new facility instead of clearing the airport customs in Shanghai or Wuxi again.

The report said half of Pudong Airport’s transshipments come from Suzhou. Among the top 10 companies that transship the most international express cargo via the airport, four are Suzhoubased, the report added.
