Amount of registered capital and conditions of contribution for foreign invested logistic company will vary according to operational scope of the company establishment. For instance, for establishment of international foreign invested freight forwarding company registered capital should be at least 5,000,000 RMB. We suggest bigger investments to consider a branch opening, than registered capital required to be more than 5,000,000 RMB, which leads for permission reapplying to increase capital.
For foreign invested non-vessel shipping enterprises (NVOCC) within registered capital, we recommend to consider required bank deposit in the amount of 800,000 RMB.
