Wine arrives at Yangshan for import expo

A cargo of French wine for the second China International Import Expo has arrived at the Yangshan Port with immigration inspection officers going aboard the ship to help with entry procedures, the Yangshan Immigration Inspection Station said on Tuesday.

The wine, weighing over 2,000 kilograms, took 28 days to sail from Antwerp to Shanghai.

It was the last batch of exhibits from Europe to come by sea. Exhibits that follow will mainly come by air, the station said.
Inspection officers said that to ensure the wine is displayed at the exhibition center as soon as possible, they enhanced communications with the shipping company and related agencies.

Information about the freighter, its crew and the goods was declared on the city's international trade system in advance and before the ship docked an online preview of all the details had been completed.
