“Nankang Furniture” is a pillar industry for the revitalization and development of the Gannan Revolutionary Base Area. In recent years, as more and more furniture companies in China have begun to enter the cross-border business, Nankang furniture enterprises have actively expanded their online sales channels. Ganzhou Customs, under the jurisdiction of Nanchang Customs, has conducted in-depth investigations and research within the enterprises. Taking into account the characteristics of a wide variety and large quantity of furniture products in Gannan, they have compiled a clear and concise cross-border e-commerce guidebook and carried out precise policy explanations on cross-border e-commerce. “In the first quarter of this year, we exported furniture worth 170 million yuan through cross-border e-commerce, a 50% increase compared to the same period last year.” said Liu Hui, Chairman of the Nankang E-commerce Association and Director of Ganzhou Alilang E-commerce Co., Ltd.

At the same time, Ganzhou Customs actively leverages the advantages of the “dual-zone linkage” project between China (Ganzhou) Cross-border E-commerce Comprehensive Pilot Zone and Hungary’s Commercial and Logistics Cooperation Park, supporting Ganzhou’s innovative launch of new trade models such as “China-Europe Train + Cross-border E-commerce” and “Cross-border E-commerce + Rail-Sea Intermodal Transport.” They guide furniture manufacturing enterprises in their jurisdiction that meet the requirements to participate in the China (Ganzhou) Cross-border E-commerce Development Summit and the China-Central and Eastern European countries’ “Online Product Selection” Cross-border Trade Online Matching Conference. This promotes the accelerated integration of cross-border e-commerce with Ganzhou’s furniture industry, helping Nangang furniture enterprises to build an “Internet Silk Road.”
