Trial Paperless Clearance in Eastern and Northern China

Paperless customs clearance will be implemented in China in 2014. In order to ensure a smooth transition, China Customs in Beijing and Shanghai officially launched a pilot on paperless customs clearance in which FedEx is participating. FedEx in Beijing now offers paperless customs clearance for import and export shipments, which require formal customs declaration in northern China. FedEx in Shanghai offers paperless customs clearance for import shipments, which require formal customs declaration into eastern China.

During the trial period, companies which have good credit standing and fall within the A/AA/B categories, can apply for paperless clearance for shipments,* which require formal customs declaration.  

Benefits of paperless clearance are as follows:

  • You can transmit electronic documents directly in PDF format to your customs clearance broker.  
  • Since hardcopy customs documentation will no longer be required, paper usage is reduced, promoting a low-carbon environment.  
  • You can pick up or send shipments by submitting the electronic release information or Clearance Paperless Inspection/Release Notification Letter without having the customs stamps required for release when submitting paper documents. 
  • The fully automated system simplifies the clearance procedures and reduces clearance costs for low risk shipments, resulting in greater efficiency. 
  • Companies using paperless clearance will be in a better position to be upgraded to the AA category and enjoy more clearance privileges.

Business users can log onto the following websites for further instructions on the electronic declaration authorization system:

*Certain conditions apply. Kindly contact our Customer Service Team for further details.

• Light sensitive — such as biological specimens.
• Time critical or location critical — such as surgical kits.
• Highly controlled or regulated — such as materials requiring chain-of-custody certification.
