As the city moves to restoring a degree of normality following a long series of Covid-related lockdowns, Shanghai has announced 12 measures designed to facilitate the resumption of work / production and to stabilise local industrial and supply chains. Chief among these is the introduction of both online customs declarations and online business counters, moves intended to help clear the cargo backlog and optimise the customs authorities’ throughput in Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Ningbo and Hefei. In line with this, the five cities have also implemented a mutual recognition of each other’s cargo clearance processes with regard to companies on Shanghai's white list for priority business resumption.
