Since the outbreak of the epidemic, the government and enterprises have worked together to prevent and control the epidemic on the one hand, and restore production on the other, to ensure the market, logistics, and supply, and to maintain the stability of the global supply chain.
Speeding up the resumption of work and production
――Key foreign trade enterprises in major foreign trade provinces and cities such as Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shanghai have all resumed work, and the effect of stabilizing foreign trade policies has gradually emerged
Recently, a thank-you letter from South Korea was sent to Shandong. The letter expressed praise and gratitude to 32 Shandong wire harness companies for overcoming the impact of the epidemic and quickly resuming production.
It turns out that small wiring harnesses affect the automotive industry. Behind the thank you letter is the reality of the deep integration of Made in China in the international industrial chain. The wiring harness is a very important part of the car as the nervous system is to the human body. It is understood that Shandong includes nearly 90% of South Korean automotive wiring harness industry chain companies, so the resumption of production and production of Shandong companies is of vital importance to the Korean automotive industry.
These 32 companies are located in Weihai, Heze, Qingdao, Yantai, Dezhou, Jining, Rizhao, Weifang and other cities. After finding out the situation, Shandong Province strengthened the scheduling of the resumption of work by enterprises, listed the accommodation and transportation problems that restricted the resumption of production and work, and took measures to solve them one by one. As early as February 15, these 32 companies had all resumed work.
At Jingxin Electronics Co., Ltd. in Jimo, Qingdao, workers process, assemble, and debug strings of wires of various colors, and then these processed wire harnesses are packed into a turnover box and stacked into pallets for loading. The container is shipped abroad. It is understood that this batch of products still has high requirements on timeliness, and the products produced on the same day must be sent to the Korean customers on the same day.
In this regard, Jimo Customs, a subsidiary of Qingdao Customs, proactively implements the liaison mechanism of “one enterprise, one policy” and “one enterprise, one person” to provide enterprises with a full chain of customs from manual establishment, material import, production and processing to finished product export, and manual verification. service. The raw materials needed by the enterprise can reach the production plant on the same day, and the finished products can also be delivered to the customer on the same day, which fully guarantees the customer's production order.
Recently, the 'acceleration' of resuming work and production has been staged across the country. In order to minimize the impact of the epidemic on the development of foreign trade, various localities and departments have intensively introduced foreign trade stabilization policies, comprehensively using fiscal, financial, and export credit guarantees to support foreign trade enterprises to resume work and production, ensure the market and guarantee orders.
Li Xingqian, Director of the Department of Foreign Trade of the Ministry of Commerce, introduced on March 13 that according to monitoring, the progress of resuming work and production of foreign trade enterprises in various regions is accelerating, and the ability to perform contracts is also rapidly recovering. Among them, major foreign trade enterprises in major foreign trade provinces and cities such as Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shanghai have all resumed work. A series of policies and measures to stabilize foreign trade have been implemented, and the effect is gradually showing.
According to reports, the next step will be to increase foreign trade policy support-expand foreign trade credit, unblock the industrial chain and supply chain by giving priority to protecting the foreign trade capital chain; expand the short-term coverage of export credit insurance, and promote a reasonable reduction in premium rates; improve The export tax rebate policy effectively reduces the cost of enterprises; promotes unimpeded trade, strengthens communication and coordination with trading partners, lifts unnecessary trade restrictions, and jointly maintains the stable and healthy development of the global supply chain.
Logistics helps smooth freight
――The resumption rate of China-Europe express trains has reached more than 90%. Since the beginning of this year, the number of trains has grown against the trend
On January 28, COSCO Shipping Logistics Dalian Warehouse and Distribution Automobile Transportation Department received an urgent letter from the customer: The production line is in a hurry and there is an urgent need for automobile coil cargo of 0.7×1540 specifications. The epidemic is current, but production cannot be interrupted. The Dalian Warehouse and Distribution Automobile Transportation Department urgently allocated capacity. On January 31, amid heavy snow, the first batch of 6 container trailers were sent out and delivered to the manufacturer first to ensure that the urgently needed parts were on-line production on time.
In the resumption of work and production, transportation difficulties are a common problem encountered by many companies, and foreign trade companies are facing challenges such as poor international logistics. In response, a group of logistics companies acted urgently to clear the 'blocking points' of transportation and make every effort to ensure the smooth flow of logistics.
In order to overcome the recent bottleneck problem of road trailer capacity, COSCO SHIPPING Lines has launched 'land to water' and 'land to iron' programs in East China to ensure the supply of raw materials and the export of finished products. For example, to provide a customer in the Suzhou area with the 'Suman-Europe' train service to open up a raw material transportation channel for its factory in Romania; to organize a 'Yiwu-Ningbo Zhoushan' sea-rail intermodal train for a textile customer in Yiwu to help them achieve Export of 30 large container products in the Persian Gulf region; arranged for LG's 5 large containers to take the 'Nanjing-Moscow' train to solve the problem that it could not be hauled by trucks normally...
'As a shipping logistics company
, whether it is railway, land or sea, it connects the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain and is the main force in the transportation of important national materials. The group must take the lead in action to drive the resumption of production and production in related industries to ensure China's position in the global supply chain No change.' said Xu Lirong, chairman of COSCO Shipping Group.
Since February 10, more than 1,000 COSCO SHIPPING companies have resumed work and production. 'Soldiers and horses have not moved, food and grass go first'. While fighting the epidemic, COSCO SHIPPING’s fleet and global route services have never been interrupted. More than 1,300 ships under the group continue to operate normally, including shipping, logistics, ports, freight forwarding, shipping, etc. Relay across the board, give full play to the advantages of informatization and global network, adhere to '7×24' hourly operations and services; issue customer service guidelines for various businesses such as shipping, ports, logistics, shipping, freight forwarding, tally, and air transport under the group to fully maintain international trade Carry out normally.
Smooth logistics is bringing strong support to import and export enterprises. From January to February this year, COSCO SHIPPING Group has completed a total of 190 million tons of freight, and has completed a total of 50 million tons of important materials such as coal and products, metal ore, oil, LNG and other domestic and foreign trade.

Open up the 'main artery' and unblock the 'microcirculation'. From a national perspective, the logistics industry is showing a positive trend in resuming work. As of the end of February, the proportion of logistics companies in the country has resumed work, and the road freight market continues to pick up; some key cities such as Shenzhen, as of March 10, the resumption rate of logistics companies is 100%, the resumption rate of airport companies is 96%, and the resumption rate of port and shipping companies 97.8%. Information from the National Development and Reform Commission on March 8 shows that the resumption rate of China-Europe trains has reached more than 90%. Since the beginning of this year, the number of trains has achieved contrarian growth.
Overseas orders have increased a lot
――The value of foreign trade imports and exports in February showed a trend of increasing ten days by ten days, and the volume of enterprise declarations also increased ten days, and market confidence was steadily recovering
'Foreign orders have increased a lot, and we are working hard to ensure delivery!' In the production workshop of ASSA ABLOY Automatic Door Systems Suzhou Co., Ltd., the production line is running at full capacity. 90% of the company's products are exported to Europe, America, Southeast Asia and other places. Since February 19, the company has completely restored its normal production capacity. Not only has almost all employees arrived, but recently it has also recruited a few more employees.
'In previous years, there were many orders, and the New Year was very busy. Although we were affected by the epidemic this year, we moved fast, the park has strong support, and production capacity soon resumed.' Suzhou factory director Jin Ming said, since the first day of the new year To prepare for production, purchase anti-epidemic materials in advance, and make arrangements for employees to return to work. The Suzhou Industrial Park where the company is located also strongly supports it. It has officially resumed work on a large scale since February 10.
Due to the fast action and early resumption of work, the company's production and delivery of hundreds of different products are now steadily proceeding. Not only that, foreign orders have also increased greatly. 'Foreign orders are much more than the same period in previous years. We place orders before arranging production, so the growth is real. Sales in March are expected to increase by 50% over the same period last year.' Jin Ming said.
In the early days of resumption of work, the company also encountered problems that were difficult to solve on its own. For example, some upstream suppliers did not resume work. “Even if the packaging materials are not in place, the products cannot be shipped normally.” For this reason, every family in the park understands supplier information and arranges to assist in resuming work; truck logistics between provinces is not smooth, and the park’s The National Development and Reform Commission and other departments coordinate across provinces, and freight will soon be able to run. As each problem is solved, Jin Ming is very confident in this year's production, 'The production capacity is no problem, and we can supply it if we double it!'
Respond quickly and restore production capacity, and many foreign trade companies are gradually ushering in improvement. Also in the Suzhou Industrial Park, Jiasheng Semiconductor (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. is one of the first companies in the semiconductor packaging and testing industry to restore 100% production capacity. At present, the company's order volume is showing a steady growth trend. 'We remain optimistic about the market situation and the team is confident to continue to expand production capacity.' The company's relevant person in charge said.
According to China Customs statistics, in the first two months, China’s foreign trade exports were 2.04 trillion yuan, a decrease of 15.9%; imports were 2.08 trillion yuan, a decrease of 2.4%. Although the value of imports and exports fell year-on-year, the General Administration of Customs introduced that 2 The monthly import and export value of foreign trade shows a trend of increasing ten days, the volume of declarations declared by enterprises is also increasing ten days, and market confidence is steadily recovering.
However, the current trend of the epidemic spreading globally, how do you see its impact on foreign trade?
Li Xinggan said that the foreign trade industry has a long industrial chain and extensive network, linking the domestic and international markets. The impact of the epidemic on foreign trade cannot be ignored or underestimated, but at the same time we are also full of confidence. On the one hand, China’s foreign trade is resilient and has plenty of room for development. In particular, the company’s innovation awareness and market development capabilities continue to increase, and the long-term positive trend will not change. On the other hand, most companies’ confidence and strategy for investing in China remain unchanged. China's comprehensive advantages in attracting various investments have not changed. China will continue to work with its trading partners to maintain the global industrial chain and supply chain. Enterprises from all countries are welcome to cooperate with Chinese companies.
