Recently, the "Hefei-Amsterdam" international scheduled cargo flight operated by the subsidiary of Hefei Shushan Economic and Technological Development Zone has started smoothly. It is a dedicated cross-border e-commerce freight line for the Shushan Block of Anhui Pilot Free Trade Zone and also Anhui's first self-operated intercontinental long-distance route.
The goods are loaded after customs clearance in the cross-border e-commerce supervision area
It is planned to have 2-3 flights every week. The first two flights on Oct 24th and 29th were fully loaded, with a total of 173.6 tons of outbound cargo and 183.9 tons of inbound cargo. The export goods of this freight line include daily necessities, auto parts, biomedicine, and other categories, and the return goods are mainly auto parts.
The Hefei-Amsterdam scheduled cargo route successfully launched its maiden flight
The opening of this new route provides full-link logistics services for local cross-border e-commerce companies to expand the European market and lays a foundation for Hefei to become an international air cargo hub.
It is understood that in 2021, the Shushan Cross-border E-commerce Park in Hefei had more than 13 million cross-border e-commerce customs clearance orders, and the transaction volume exceeded 1.16 billion US dollars, a year-on-year increase of 71%.
