In terms of the business models of cross-border e-commerce, customs clearance of import and export retails have experienced fast growth thanks to a series of measures to stabilize foreign trade, especially the launch of the chartered flights to Europe, the United States and some Asian countries, and the increase of clearance pieces at Zhengzhou Customs because some cross-border e-commerce enterprises, especially those of small or medium sizes have to send their goods to Zhengzhou for customs clearance since the cargo capacity of other international airports like Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen has already reached highest volume due to a large number of medical supply exports.
With regard to the contribution made by cities (and counties), the provincial cross-border e-commerce transaction volume has increased by 3 percent year-on-year. Specifically, Zhengzhou saw a growth of 10 percent to 45.8 billion yuan, which played a key role in stabilizing the provincial cross-border e-commerce development; Luoyang and Nanyang achieved a year-on-year rise of 10 percent and 5 percent respectively.
