Th e Hacis Nansha depot in southern Guangzhou – the company’s seventh Inland Cargo Depot in mainland China – will become the latest destination for Hacis SuperLink China Direct.

This provides express road feeder service for both general cargo and crossborder e-commerce cargo, supporting B2B and B2C business models and enjoying simplifi ed Customs declaration and clearance. Air cargo arriving in Hong Kong will be trucked in bond to Nansha in three hours, using Customs e-seals and consignees can perform Customs formalities according to the cargo flow at destination.

Located in Guangdong Free Trade Zone, Hacis Nansha Depot is set up to support the region’s e-commerce logistics. To ensure optimum efficiency for all e-commerce shipments, systems integration has taken place between Cargo Management Systems and Customs Clearance System, enabling real-time information exchange with all relevant parties. A number of successful trial runs have operated to test the service and support systems before the services begin carrying commercial freight.

Nansha became China’s sixth Statelevel New Area in 2012 and is receiving national support through a series of preferential policies and reforms covering tax policy, land management, fi nancial innovation and industrial development.
