An O2O model for cross-border e-commerce integrated with e-commerce enterprises, logistics business enterprises and financial service providers has been established under strict customs supervision.

Ulife, the offline outlets for imported goods, has perfectly combined with “foreign goods port” in integrating advantages of online and offline sales.

At present, with the settlement of the well-known cross-border e-commerce enterprises such as foreign goods port, Alibaba and JD.com, the Park is a gathering place for enterprises in Shaanxi as well as northwest China. The“foreign goods port” will be the service platform for cross-border e-commerce enterprises in Xi’an and Shanxi Province, as well as the center for online trading and offline distribution of quality products both home and abroad.
