Fan Cheng International operates in Shanghai Free Trade Zone

On 15th Oct.the second operation day of Shanghai Free Trade Zone (FTZ), Fan Cheng International Transportation Service Co.,Ltd (FCI) obtained the operation license within FTZ where cross border transshipment allowed, functional like HK. FCI has already made a big step ahead of all our competitors in Shanghai, as they are the first one in forwarding industry who got this license which expect to grant very a few enterprises. The China (Shanghai) free-trade zone is a nearly 11-sq mile district that covers four existing special trade zones in Pudong district, including one at the airport.

“A free-trade zone in Shanghai that China's government has billed as a major step for financial reforms and economic experimentation has formally started.” reported by Guardian.

Also it’s being viewed by mainstream foreign median as the most important attempt at economic reform since the establishment of the country's first special economic zone in 1980 in Shenzhen, near Hong Kong. Wei Yao, a China economist, said in a research note that setting up the zone in Shanghai, a city of "great strategic importance", was a clear sign that policymakers wanted to push for fast economic liberalisation.

You will see the big advantage and bright business prospect started from here. Congratulations to FCI.
