As the public crisis has eased, the fruit market has gradually improved, but compared with last year, the profitability of imported fruit merchants is far less than in previous years. Recently, Mr. Li, the person in charge of an international freight forwarding company, said in an interview with FRESHPLAZA.
According to Manager Li, all recently imported frozen meat products need to be tested for nucleic acid, while frozen fruits need to be sampled. The proportion of random inspections is uniformly regulated by the customs and adjusted in real-time according to the situation of the public crisis.
"We are actively preparing for the upcoming cherries season. The last season coincided with the outbreak of the public crisis. The market was sluggish and importers were afraid to pick up the goods. There were hundreds of unsalable containers of cherries in ports. In April, Chilean cherries entered the last season, and American cherries took over, but sales were not very good. This season, the production of South American cherries increased, and the import volume will increase by about 10%. In the past, cherries were usually imported from Chile and transshipped inland through Hong Kong ports. This season, some shipping companies are also considering whether to add a cherry express line to transport fruit directly to inland ports. "
With the opening of the country and the improvement of people's consumption levels, China's fruit imports have grown rapidly. But this year, affected by the public crisis, the import and export of the fruit industry are slightly worse than in previous years. Recently, we feel that the market situation is recovering, but it will take some time to fully recover. We want to help our customers to the greatest extent possible and provide them with the best solutions. "Mr. Li said.
