Re-export Trade: China’s Aluminum Profiles’ Innovative Path in Global Markets

Re-export Trade: China’s Aluminum Profiles’ Innovative Path in Global Markets

Against the backdrop of intensifying international trade barriers, China’s aluminum profile industry has adopted the strategy of re-export trade to effectively respond to the anti-dumping and countervailing measures of various countries, demonstrating its innovation and resilience in the global market.

Since 2020, China’s aluminum profile industry has encountered heavy challenges in the international market. Canada, Vietnam, the EU, the U.S. and Australia have implemented a series of anti-dumping and countervailing investigations and measures against Chinese aluminum profiles. For example, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Vietnam has adjusted the anti-dumping duty rate on Chinese aluminum profiles to 2.85% to 35.58%, while the United States has initiated anti-dumping and countervailing investigations on aluminum profiles from a number of countries.

Advantages of re-export trade solutions

Against this background, re-export trade has become one of the key strategies for China’s aluminum profile industry. By first transporting the products to a third country, such as Malaysia or Vietnam, and then exporting them to the destination country, high tariffs in the destination country can be effectively avoided. This not only reduces costs, but also speeds up market entry and increases the competitiveness of Chinese aluminum profiles in the international market.

Re-export trade process:

· Normal export from Chinese port to the third country.

· Customs clearance, exchange of containers, and processing of certificate of origin and other related documents in the third country.

· The goods are then loaded to the destination country, and customs clearance is carried out using the certificate of origin and other documents of the third country to avoid the anti-dumping duty of the destination country.

Successful Case Analysis of Re-export Trade

A specific case is that a Chinese aluminum profile manufacturer successfully exported its products to the U.S. market through re-export from Malaysia. Despite the increase in transportation and transit costs, the economic benefits of this strategy are more significant than the high anti-dumping duties.

In the face of increasingly complex international trade, re-export trade has become an important means for China’s aluminum profile industry to break through trade barriers. This demonstrates the adaptability and innovation ability of Chinese enterprises in the face of the challenges of globalization but also provides an effective strategy for other industries to deal with international trade barriers. In the future, as the global trade environment continues to change, China’s aluminum extrusion industry will continue to explore and optimize its re-export trade strategy to maintain its competitiveness and sustainable development in the global market.
