Most shipments handled are bonded goods. For imported goods, Xinning Logistics arranges customs declaration at the air and sea ports, then arranges bonded trucking to the bonded warehouse duty free. Once the customer decides it wants to sell the goods, Xinning Logistics arranges final customs clearance duty payment and delivers the goods to the consignee. For exported goods, Xinning Logistics picks up the goods from the shipper and handles customs declaration to the bonded warehouse. Once the shipment is ready for export, Xinning Logistics provides final customs clearance. The international transportation is not usually handled by Xinning Logistics.
In China, the goods of many foreign companies’ china factories are bonded goods. If the goods are to be sold to another factory, they will have to be exported first. Then the buyer can import the goods to China. There are expensive international freight costs involved. China customs now allows bonded warehouses to handled these shipments to avoid these expensive costs. Xinning Logistics is one of the bonded warehouse managers that can help customers save on international freight costs.

Xinning Logistics developed its own IT system to manage the warehousing and distribution covering the 276,065 square meters of warehouse space in 27 cities.
