FedEx China Launches Online Declaration Tool for Outbound Shipments

Small and Medium Enterprises Increase Clearance Efficiency by Submitting Export Clearance Declaration Information Online

SHANGHAI, June 23, 2020 — FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, officially launched the FedEx Online Declaration Tool in China. Developed by the FedEx China team, the platform assists customers in electronically submitting export trade information for low-value (Cat-C) and high-value (Cat-D) shipments.

FedEx customers in China can access the new FedEx Online Declaration Tool through the official FedEx WeChat account and FedEx website. Through the tool, customers can search for their products harmonized (HS) codes and receive guidance about information required by China Customs. Once the customer submits the information, the FedEx Clearance Team starts the review process and provides further assistance if needed. The tool’s smart fill-out feature allows customers to store historical data so that a shipment with the same commodity information is automatically populated. Customers also have full visibility of their declaration status and can track progress.

“FedEx is committed to providing efficient customs clearance service through continuous innovation to support Chinese companies who wish to expand their international business. The FedEx Online Declaration Tool is one of our latest initiatives,” said Eddy Chan, senior vice president, FedEx China. “The COVID-19 pandemic has left its impact on economies and businesses, especially on the small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This tool enables flexibility for SME customers when submitting export trade data. It is more convenient, accurate and helps them resume international business quickly.”

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, FedEx has been dedicated to serving customers and delivering urgently needed medical supplies to areas in need around the world. FedEx not only continues to provide stable and reliable logistics services for Chinese companies, it also develops new products and services to help customers resume work and production faster.
