HONG KONG, July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The General Administration of Customs of China has launched its first state-regulated cross-border e-commerce trade custom clearance service platform on the July 1st. Led by the cross-border e-commerce giant OSell DinoDirect China limited, this platform, which integrates a series of related enterprises, will be connected to the Humen port customs clearance information platform. This connection will be the completion of the custom clearance of cross-border e-commerce platform regulated by the the General Administration of Customs. It allows four new types of customers clearance services: the general export, special-zone export, direct purchase of imports, and online shopping bonded imports. It connects the e-port with cross-border e-commerce companies and governments, and helps e-commerce companies get legal customs clearance, quicken the settlement, and tax refund.

OSell is the only e-commerce company designated by the General Administration of Customs to lead this platform. Headquartered in Chongqing, OSell is the leader of the Chinese cross-border e-commerce industry. It has branches in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Xi'an, and Shengyang. It has supply chain centers in Suzhou, Yiwu, and Guangzhou. It owns three domestic warehouses in Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Shanghai. It also has e-commerce regulated warehouses in Chongqing and Heilongjiang. The warehouses cover up over 50,000 square meters.

In the international market, it has set up branches in Moscow, Russia, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Jakarta, Indonesia, Montreal, Canada, and Canberra, Australia. It owns two warehouses in Russia and Ukraine. OSell is currently exploring the Russian market, with more than several billion RMB sales revenue last year.

OSell points out that traditional cross-border e-commerce is a "gray-zone" when it comes to customs clearance. What's worse, there is no guarantee of any after-sale service or return policy, or even product quality. To tackles this problem, OSell came up with the idea of "the e-commercialization of foreign trade;" foreign trade here meaning the small-scaled orders of B2C or B2B2C businesses. OSell argued that only those under proper regulation can be protected by state law and provides better products.

Currently, the traditional distribution network hinders Chinese brands from penetrating into international markets. "The e-commercialization of foreign trade" helps Chinese enterprises to circumvent the huge cost of global distribution, and connect Chinese products to retailers that are closest to the end customers.
