XPS Code Needed for Customs Express Clearance in PVG    05/01/19

As customers shipping to Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) are aware, China Customs provides a Customs Express Channel (CEC) for shipments arriving into China at PVG. To route data for shipments intended to clear through the CEC to the correct Customs channel, the special handling code XPS must be included when we electronically transmit advance information for these shipments.

Accordingly, the shipper/forwarder must enter the XPS code in the Handling Information field of the paper MAWB for shipments intended to clear through the PVG CEC. Recently, however, United Cargo has received several shipments intended to clear through the PVG CEC without the XPS code in the MAWB Handling Information field. This has resulted in delays in shipment clearance.

We're sending this note to remind you to enter the special handling code XPS in the Handling Information field of the MAWB for all shipments intended to clear through the PVG CEC. Also, please reference the XPS special handling code when you book these shipments electronically or with our Contact Center or Sales Team. Using the XPS code will help ensure your shipments clear through the PVG CEC as intended.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation, and please feel free to contact your United Cargo Sales professional for more information. As always, United Cargo values your support and appreciates your business.
