With this helpful facility, we can get partial customs procedures done in Yiwu first, then do the rest of the things in loading ports like Ningbo, Shanghai. Now, what does this mean?

In the early 1980s, China Yiwu city was an impoverished rural county historically known for its small traders, who mostly bartered sugar for chicken feathers during the Qing dynasty. When the China Yiwu Wholesale Market was opened in November 1982, it merely consisted of a few hundred sheds and stalls, but proved highly popular and grew quickly.
In 1983, the county government spent 580,000 yuan (US$293,567) to build a new market consisting of booths. By the end of that year, there were more than 1,000 vendors selling over 3,000 products, most of them from outside Yiwu China.
In October 1984, the China Yiwu Market continued its rapid growth and was rebuilt and expanded multiple times. The number of market booths exceeded 10,000 in 1991. Moreover, the World Bank called it the world’s largest small commodities market in 2015.
By 2013, it attracted more than 20,000 customers daily from all over the world and sold US$11 billion of goods annually. Till 2019, there are more than 80,000 booths for worldwide buyers to choose from in the China Yiwu Market.
