BEIJING — China is expanding a single-window system that enables faster and cheaper cargo clearance across the country.

The General Administration of Customs (GAC) announced on Nov 27 that a standard version of the platform now covers all trade ports with a total of 35,000 registered users and more than 100,000 daily declarations.

GAC spokesperson Huang Songping said it combines the functions of 11 agencies and provide 129 services ranging from declaring goods to checking business qualifications.

Instead of filing the same information repeatedly with different authorities, traders are able to declare cargo and taxes with a single submission on a web-based platform, improving efficiency and reducing costs.
