Parcel Delivery to China for Businesses

China has seen massive growth in previous years, and can now boast being the world’s second largest economy.
Over the past decade the Chinese import market has grown by a factor of five to £1.2tnThe country’s growing middle classes have led to an increased demand for luxury British goods, particularly food and drink products and fashion items.
Trading with the People’s Republic of China often requires a local agent within the country - regulations on imports change frequently. If trading with a state corporation, goods are often allowed into the country free of duty. Import licences are also often granted automatically. There are preferential trading agreements in place between China and the EU for goods including agricultural products, ceramics, clothing, cosmetics, footwear, glass leather goods, textiles, wines and spirits. Certain goods may require pre-shipment inspection by a qualified organisation in the UK under the China Compulsory Certification scheme (CCC)
