June 10 marked the second anniversary of the Silk Road Maritime e-commerce express line directly connecting Xiamen Port to Manila Port in the Philippines.

According to Xiamen Customs, the line, which is China's first "Silk Road Maritime" e-commerce express route, has achieved a container throughput of over 50,000 TEUs over the past two years, exporting more than 1.45 million cross-border e-commerce items valued at 11.3 billion yuan ($1.56 billion) and including over 1,900 types of goods. 

The main categories include bags, shoes, clothing, daily necessities, and fitness equipment. This milestone further enhances the efficiency and reduces the cost for e-commerce goods to go global.

The express line is a "point-to-point" dedicated route. Domestic e-commerce goods depart from Xiamen Port and can reach Manila Port in just two days. It caters to the needs of e-commerce businesses for small batch shipments, frequent deliveries, and high efficiency, making it a preferred choice for cross-border e-commerce enterprises.

Fan Xiehui, marketing manager of SITC Xiamen Branch, stated, "In addition to Fujian province, this route also covers surrounding provinces and cities. After two years of operation, the integrated service of maritime, ports, and logistics resources for the maritime e-commerce business has become increasingly mature. "

He added, "Moving forward, we plan to replicate and promote this model to Southeast Asian countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia, providing even better services for our customers."
