SHENZHEN, China, Dec. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 26 and December 4, two SF Express cargo freighters, each carrying 103 tons of cherries, arrived in China from Santiago, Chile after 31 hours of flight. After its timely arrival, each pallet of fresh cherries was safely packed and documented for customs clearance, and delivered to shops and homes in Hangzhou, China.
Carried by SF's cargo aircraft subsidiary- SF Airlines' Boeing 747-400ERF with a capacity of 120 tons, SF Express tailored this Chile to China delivery as their newest pursuit to provide global clients with customs and flexible solutions for their businesses and customers. SF Express accomplished this goal by modifying its original US-China air route, adding Santiago as one of its stops. SF Express US-China route, initially established for export-import delivery between North America and China, is now approved to stop in New York, Santiago, Miami and Anchorage to Hangzhou to provide a greater service.

From customs clearance to import duties and border inspection to last-mile-to-door delivery, our staff plans every step of the way to avoid delays."
