Foxconn to Help Apple Ship Directly in China

Foxconn is expected to provide services in the future to help Apple sell products in China, shipping Apple products directly from its plants to the domestic market. Foxconn and Apple had already reached an agreement with China’s customs authorities to directly ship a small amount of products to the China market.

Since China has become a major market for the IT industry, Apple has been aggressively trying to expand its presence in the country. But Apple needs support, and it is expected to rely on Foxconn to help it provide logistics and after-sale maintenance services in China.

The direct shipments will reduce import taxes and may reduce the prices for Apple products in China. In addition to China, Foxconn has been trying to put in place a similar direct shipment business model in other countries such as Indonesia and Brazil.
