As the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) takes effect, the world's most populous, largest, influential and most promising regional free trade zones will gradually realize efficient allocation of factor resources and further expand their industrial, supply and value chains, including logistics services. Guangxi is the only province in China connected by land and sea with ASEAN countries. With the accelerated flow of factors among RCEP members, cross-border logistics will embrace unprecedented historic development opportunities.
The guangxi zhuang autonomous region people's government development research center, the regional economic research department chief Li Shize, said in an interview with China economic times reporter RCEP member states by more than 90% of goods trade would eventually realize zero tariff, the freedom of choice for manufacturing in this area provides the convenience of low cost conditions of origin, will stimulate regional production factor to the free flow speed, Cross-border and trans-regional industrial chain is facing reconstruction, and the acceleration of logistics scale is worth expecting.
Li Suggested that, first, rely on the construction of new land and sea passageways in the west to consolidate transport support for cross-border logistics. Upgrade the beibu Gulf port to the navigation and berthing capacity of container ships with a class of over 200,000 tons; We will expand sea routes connecting Beibu Gulf Ports with RCEP member countries, and actively introduce more foreign trade ocean service routes. Priority should be given to the construction of high-speed railways and expressways connecting the border areas, and the construction of major transportation projects such as the xiang-Guangxi Nanning - Pingxiang railway expansion and reconstruction, Chongzuo to Pingxiang high-speed railway, Bama - Pingxiang expressway, Pingxiang to Dongxing expressway, and Pingxiang to Beiliu (Qingwan) expressway should be accelerated. Second, strengthen port functions. In view of the lag of port functions in the three pilot areas of border development and opening in Guangxi, the mode of port park should be expanded as soon as possible to improve the service level of port customs clearance, professional market, logistics park and cross-border e-commerce platform. Expand the scope of catalogue of products traded at ports and relax access; To support the customs of each territory on the border to accept trade declaration of each other and to implement the customs clearance mode of "territorial declaration and foreign release" by the main body of goods import (border residents and border residents' organizations). Third, speed up the construction of logistics service stations at key nodes in the RCEP region. We will actively promote standardization of cross-border logistics, cooperate with overseas logistics companies to build service stations, and strive to build high-quality cross-border supply chains in the RCEP region.
"RCEP to express cargo, perishable goods, etc. To strive for release after the goods arrived in 6 hours, and simplified customs procedures, adopting advance ruling, arrived in pretreatment, information technology, such as efficient management mode, customs clearance efficiency greatly, open trade in goods between countries, high level, boost cross-border logistics development into the fast lane, It provides convenient conditions for logistics to expand service product range." Li Suggested that Guangxi logistics enterprises should increase investment in overseas capital and personnel, promote the construction of regional brands, promote the construction of RCEP overseas warehouses with high quality, enrich the functions of overseas warehouses and effectively integrate overseas market resources. The demand for fresh food in THE RCEP region is extremely large. Logistics enterprises in Guangxi should make full use of location, transportation and policy advantages, focus on the cross-border flow of fresh food, get familiar with customs clearance procedures and procedures of all RCEP member countries, upgrade and improve fresh logistics equipment and infrastructure, and set up special fresh food stations in overseas warehouses. Actively undertake fresh products to expand consumer demand. As soon as possible to organize the key import and export enterprises studying carefully investigate RCEP tariff concession condition between member states, close docking RCEP national customs procedures, inspection and quarantine and other facilitation commitments to the ground, because of the ShiCe, raise, accurately understand its own import and export goods information, make sure to declare accuracy, match the customs supervision system.
RCEP explicitly supports cross-border e-commerce operations, maintains the current practice of not imposing tariffs on e-commerce, and further standardizes customs control measures for cross-border e-commerce among member states. Li Shize believes that this is conducive to cross-border logistics enterprises to facilitate the rapid development of regional e-commerce. Li Shize analyzed that the RCEP region is the key area for China to carry out cross-border e-commerce business, and China's cross-border e-commerce will be more distributed among member states. At the same time, the popularity of big data technology is deepening in RCEP member countries. As data connectivity, sharing, intelligent analysis, let originally isolated information between countries to establish a new contact, RCEP members of cross-border electricity business enterprise to obtain the latest information, to reduce the risk of transaction caused by asymmetric information, the development of large data provides decision support for cross-border electricity makers, cross-border logistics will achieve the development of more efficient.
Therefore, Li Shize suggested that a digital cross-border logistics information system platform be built, and new technologies such as big data intelligence and cloud computing center be used to promote the transformation of traditional logistics platforms into intelligent ones driven by the digital economy. Build intelligent cross-border warehousing system of overseas warehouses through intelligent warehousing technology, and build network layout of overseas warehouses. To comprehensively improve the timeliness of e-commerce logistics, promote the integration and mutual support of logistics platform and intelligent freight system, analyze factor resources through the intelligent freight system, realize automatic shipping, automatic adjustment of freight rates, and output a set of efficient, convenient, professional and intelligent new e-commerce logistics solutions. Accelerate the application of big data in e-commerce logistics, promote the pre-inventory, intelligent warehousing, warehousing integration and other services, and do a good job in overseas warehousing, customs, distribution and other resources digital links.
