Chinese line SITC has launched the first cross-border "Silk Road Shipping" e-commerce express service, EPX1, from Xiamen Port.

The Line EPX1 is the first Silk Road Shipping e-commerce express route operated by SITC, providing direct service between Xiamen Port in China and Manila South Port in the Philippines.

This "two ports and one voyage" service will make the delivery of e-commerce goods between the two countries and two ports come true. Taking the advantages of the shipping dock platform, SITC International E-commerce Express EPX1 has its own berth in Xiamen Port, providing bonded warehouse, and creating a high-quality logistics channel for Xiamen cross-border e-commerce customers.

SITCs Chairman Yang Shaopeng said that the establishment of this express transportation would attract more exports from Xiamen Port, and we will continue to open up more Southeast Asian e-commerce express lanes to build a much closer connection between Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and other regions.

As the end of 2021, SITC operated a fleet of 96 containerships and five bulk carriers, offering services to 16 countries and regions.
