April 19, 2017 Customs Requirements for Shipments Transiting Through Shanghai
The Shanghai Customs Authority requires that the Harmonized System Code (HS Code) be declared for all shipments transiting through Shanghai (PVG). We will not be able to move shipments transiting through Shanghai if this information is not included. Note that this is not required for shipments destined to PVG.
HS CODE (HARMONIZED SYSTEM CODE)
The HS Code number consists of a minimum of six numerical characters and MUST be indicated on the "Nature of Goods" section of the air waybill.
The HS Code is mandatory for each good's description at the Master Air Waybill (MAWB) and House Air Waybill (HAWB) level. For more information on HS Codes, visit http://chinahscode.com/
