We would like to clarify that the Safe and Secure Trade Lanes (SSTL) Pilot Project is an EU – China pilot.
The EU – China Smart and Secure Trade Lanes (SSTL) is a Pilot Project between the EU and China which allows testing end-to-end supply chain security instruments and mechanisms in line with WCO SAFE Framework of Standards.
It aims to reduce lead times and Customs procedures, and increase security in the supply chain through data sharing between Customs.
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is the only European airport which currently takes part in the SSTL Air pilot project.
The cooperation is currently between Customs in China, the Netherlands, and several other EU member states.
The scope of the project has now been extended to air transport and more SSTL flight routes are expected to follow between Schiphol and Shanghai Pudong, Baiyun, and Hong Kong.
