Conference Overview

The 15th China Air Cargo Summit 2018 was sucessfully presented in Shanghai on November 28-30, 2018. The Summit was organized by Summit Asia Events and hosted by Shanghai Airport Authority and Eastern Air Logistics.


The theme of this Summit is "Cross-border e-commerce and free trade port propel air cargo growth". With global trade recovery, cross-border e-commerce, particularly that in China, is experiencing a significant growth. Statistics from the Chinese Customs showed that the import and export value of the retail goods went through the Customs Cross-border E-commerce Management Platform in 2017 reached 90.24 billion yuan (US$14.1billion), an increase of 80.6% over a year before. The boom have enabled Chinese air logistics companies to reap fruits and realize transition.


In addition, China has vowed to grant more power to pilot free trade zones and explore the opening of free trade ports, according to the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China taking place in October last year. In April 2018, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced a decision to support building Hainan into a pilot free trade zone and gradually and steadily into a free trade port with Chinese characteristics. Besides Hainan, Shanghai is moving to deepen reforms by reinventing its pilot Free Trade Zone into a world-class free port. Compared with the existing free trade zone, the free trade port is expected to make new breakthroughs in border liberalization and eliminate or minimize some trade control measures for incoming goods.


Pudong Airport is the third in the world with annual mail and cargo throughput exceeding 4 million tons. The mail and cargo throughput of Pudong Airport represents a quarter of China and its international mail and cargo throughput accounts for almost half of China. The role of Shanghai and its international connectivity make a good location.
