Facilitating and regulating e–commerce

Facilitating and regulating e–commerce

One of the stories from the COVID–19 pandemic has been the surging numbers of goods being moved through e-commerce. The forced levels of isolation have caused consumers and corporates to resort to purchasing even more goods than ever online seeking urgent delivery.

What is also an important consideration is that e-commerce represents the primary means for Micro and Small to Medium Enterprises (MSME) to market and sell their products. That level of importance is magnified for those at the “micro” level who only have the e-commerce option to bring their products to consumers. E-commerce underpins the ability of those “micro” traders to start their business and improve their standard of living.

Capacity constraints

Of course, consumers expectations for immediate gratification from their purchases have not always been met as production in many countries ceased or slowed and much of the air cargo capacity has disappeared due to COVID-19. Even when production began to return in source countries such as China, the capacity to carry the goods by air is still nowhere near previous levels and suppliers have been required to change their supply chains to include a mixture of air and sea cargo or merely to resort to moving the goods solely by sea cargo with containers laden with thousands of goods sold by one supplier to many customers. This has placed a massive burden on customs electronic reporting systems designed for lower and more predictable levels of trade with many lines being needed to be completed for cargo reports and import declarations.
As there is no foreseeable reduction in demand for goods through the e-commerce channel, the issue is how that trade can be facilitated and expedited without compromise to normal border controls for safety, revenue and biosecurity which have not diminished.

The global e-commerce market

According to a report from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development dated 27 April 2020, e-commerce sales hit $25.6 trillion (tn) globally in 2018, up 8% from 2017. In a report dated 23 July 2020, the US Congressional Research Service, estimated that in 2018, 1.8 billion (bn) people globally purchased goods online. That reportalso includes a diagram from Statista.com dated 12 July 2020 setting out estimated global revenue from e-commerce by country for 2020 adjusted for COVID–19 with the five leading nations in $US being:

  • China (1,006.2tn);
  • US (386.4bn);
  • Japan (99.9bn);
  • UK (92.2bn); and
  • Germany (83.4bn).

That same research reflects that Australia is currently the 10th largest e-commerce market in the world by revenue with e-commerce estimated to grow to an anticipated market size of about A$35.bn (US$ 25.2bn) by 2021.

These high levels of trade have received attention in other international forums including a recent report by the World Trade Organisation (WTO) on Ecommerce Trade and the COVID–19 Pandemic where the WTO has made some detailed assessments of how trade has changed. Similar work from the World Customs Organization (WCO) can be found in the summary of results from a member survey on the topic.

There are some common themes to both studies, such as the need to improve facilitation of trade through improved secure messaging and exchanges of information and enhanced relationships between all agencies operating at the border and those in the private sector through use of terminology, messaging and reporting systems.

These are also concepts which can be found in related work under the WTO’s Trade Facilitation Agreement and various iterations of the WCO’s Revised Kyoto Convention. One example of the desired outcome from these and related sources is the adoption by each country of an electronic “single window to trade”.

Australian approaches

In addition to its work in the international environment, Australia has also focused significant attention on e-commerce issues. That had included being the first country to introduce Goods and Services Tax (GST) on “low-value transactions” in part as a response to complaints that those selling through e-commerce from overseas had an unfair advantage over local retailers. That seems to have recovered GST well in excess of original estimates but may not have diminished our appetite for online purchases.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has established a web page summarising relevant e-commerce issues. The Federal Parliament has conducted a number of inquiries including an Internet Competition Inquiry, an Inquiry into the Trade System and the Digital Economy by the Joint Standing Committee on Trade and Investment Growth leading to the Report entitled Trade and the Digital Economy which the Joint Standing Committee issued a further report in May 2020 entitled “Trade Transformation – Supporting Australia’s export and investment opportunities.

Australia also recognises the importance of e-commerce internationally by the inclusion of Chapters to facilitate e-commerce in 14 of its Free Trade Agreements. The most recent initiative is the Australia – Singapore Digital Economy Agreement signed on 6 August, which included a memorandum of understanding (MOUs) on data innovation, cooperation on artificial intelligence, trade facilitation, cooperation on electronic invoicing and electronic certification cooperation.

Engagement with the private sector

The Federal Government has also taken steps to engage with the private sector through the National Committee on Trade Facilitation (NCTF) which incorporates a specialist sub-committee known as the Trade Facilitation Initiatives Working Group (TFIWG). This is a forum where government agencies including the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force (ABF) and the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) work with members of the private sector to advance such issues, to report back to the NCTF with recommended initiatives.

Current and future challenges

There is no doubt that the continued growth of e-commerce places significant pressure on all parties in the supply chain including international agencies such as the WTO and the WCO as well as national governments and their border agencies. Facilitation of e-commerce is vital both for those already using the system and those MSMEs using the system as their first rung in improving their economic prosperity. That pressure is seen in interruptions to the information technology used by border agencies.

Some proposed changes

Given the current environment and appetite for e-commerce, government and its agencies need to consolidate and expedite their efforts to secure a regime to facilitate this trade without compromise to the legitimate movement of goods. Some thoughts on some relevant developments are as follows

  • A comprehensive and urgent review of the ABF Integrated Cargo System (ICS) which operates as the main portal for reporting the movement of good at the border, both for import and export. It was designed over 15 years ago and while there have been regular upgrades it has been subject to recent outages and slow-downs mainly arising from numbers of e-commerce transactions being undertaken through sea cargo.
  • Some substantive work on a single window for trade in Australia. There has already been broad engagement on the issue for some time and while the MOU with Singapore (referred to above) does refer to “single – ledger” work between the two countries, my sense is that industry would like to see substantive outcomes in a system which allows transactions to be actually recorded and processed even in limited parameters. I believe everyone acknowledges that there is no current likelihood of a single window to allow reporting cross all agencies but there must be a more limited outcome worthy of pursuit even if it is only one interface or forum where parties can get access to all border agencies information as opposed to needing to have recourse to a variety of different websites.
  • Working to standardise terminology and concepts across different agencies such as the approach to “fit and proper” which concept is used with different criteria across a variety of agencies.
  • Looking at ways in which artificial intelligence and related remotely directed investigation could be incorporated into the review of transactions or relevant goods under review of the agencies. The DAWE has already moved into this field with some positive results.
  • Adopting some new level of regulation over the activity of those reporting the e-commerce transactions. Much of the e-commerce world can transact through “self – assessed clearance declarations” (SAC). As the e-commerce world expands, so do the number of SACs which can be lodged by persons who are not subject licensing requirements as are licensed customs brokers. I am not proposing a process identical to that of a Licensed Customs Broker but can see merit in a form of regulation requiring registration of relevant parties with a requirement for them to be “fit and proper”. These parties have access to the ICS and the ABF has regularly reported concerns on the misuse of SACs.

Our Customs and Trade team are well placed to advise you on aspects of Australian and international e-commerce.

Ten Ways to succeed in Australian Manufacturing, AMGC research

Ten Ways to succeed in Australian Manufacturing, AMGC research

Advanced manufacturing growth centre (AMGC) has released a latest research: Ten Ways to Succeed in Australian Manufacturing. This report arrives at a critical juncture in the current economic climate.

Australian manufacturers responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with distinction. Now, we rely on
Australian manufacturing to be one of the country’s heavy lifters in leading the economy out of recession and on to the road toward a solid recovery with greater capability.

The Ten Ways report aims to help manufacturers identify areas where they may want to seek extra assistance. It is arranged so that any of the ten recommendations can be used independently, or in combination, depending upon a business’s circumstances. It contains clear advice and local case studies to explain how to implement steps for change.

Australia can transition from being a lucky country to a smart country. We know that when Australian manufacturers ‘add value’ to a product or service it is greatly respected and becomes more globally competitive. Australian manufacturing carries a strong reputation internationally, it is a broad capability that cuts across all sectors, and now is the time to seize the momentum that is underway.

AMGC and the ECA are looking forward to this coming era of manufacturing capability. AMGC is enormously proud of its 2,500+ members’ efforts. This report reflects the achievements of successful manufacturers and we are pleased to share many of the winning formulas with you.

Market updates and opportunities for Malaysia

Market updates and opportunities for Malaysia

The NSW Government with the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) invite you to participate in a webinar briefing on market updates and business and investment opportunities in Malaysia on Wednesday, 23 September 2020 from 4.00pm to 5.00pm (AEST).

The briefing will highlight on the opportunities between NSW and Malaysia as well as to better understand Malaysia’s capability as a new alternative supply based for Asia.

Hear from the NSW Government, MIDA, AmBank Research, ECA, and a NSW business with experience in the Malaysia market (case study).

Why Malaysia?

For the foreseeable future, Malaysians will continue to have growing disposable incomes and good access to credit, supported by a mature financial sector. These more affluent and sophisticated consumers will demand greater product choice, better quality brands and higher standards of service. In 2018 Malaysia was Australia’s 10th largest trading partner and recorded the second fastest growth in two-way trade among major ASEAN economies. Malaysia is Australia’s sixth largest energy export market, and total bilateral trade (goods and services) increased from $16 billion in 2008 to over $24 billion in 2018.

Malaysia is Australia’s second largest source of foreign investment from ASEAN. Malaysia is an advanced middle-income nation with the fastest urbanisation growth rate in ASEAN. The country is expected to reach high-income status by 2024. Malaysia’s growth presents numerous commercial opportunities, particularly in sectors such as food and agribusiness, digital economy (e-commerce and fintech), health care, smart cities, energy and defence.

The webinar will cover:
  • Opening Speech from NSW Trade and Investment.
  • Malaysian Economic Updates by Dr. Anthony Dass, Group Chief Economist, AmBank Research.
  • Business and Investment Opportunities, in Malaysia by Ms. Fatmah Ahmad, Director, Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) Australia.

The Department of Agriculture update: Urgent action needed on Khapra Beetle infestatons

The Department of Agriculture update: Urgent action needed on Khapra Beetle infestatons

The Department of Agriculture has (13 August 2020) issued a notice that it is planning urgent action on Khapra Beetle infestations. Importers of plant products, freight forwarders, customs brokers and high-volume specialist operators will be affected.

Among the urgent actions are: growing biosecurity threat to grain and oilseed products around the world. It can also seriously infest cargo – even packed and plastic-wrapped cargo.

Khapra beetle (Trogoderma granarium) is Australia’s number two National Priority Plant Pest and the number one plant priority pest for grains. It is not present in Australia, but it is a highly invasive pest that poses a major threat to Australia’s grains industry. The species feeds directly on goods such as stored grain and dry food stuffs, which can result in significant damage. Infested goods may also become contaminated with beetles and cast larval skins and hairs, which can be a health risk and are difficult to remove from grain storage structures and transport vessels.

Goods that have been thermally processed and commercially manufactured and packaged such as retorted, blanched, roasted, fried, boiled, puffed, malted or pasteurised goods, and commercially manufactured frozen food and frozen plant products or oils derived from vegetables or seed will be exempt.

CPT – Carriage Paid To (Named Place) Incoterms® 2020

CPT – Carriage Paid To (Named Place) Incoterms® 2020

Article 6 in our series of Incoterms® 2020 – In each article we will identify the responsibilities of the seller and buyer in the transaction at different points in the shipping journey.

What are Incoterms® used for?

Incoterms® are primarily used for determining how the sale of equipment for delivery across international boundaries will be handled and who will pay for what in the transaction. They will not address the consequences of a breach of contract or exemptions of liability. Incoterms® relate to the terms between the exporter and importer.

Incoterms® cover the following broad points:

  • Delivery -Incoterms® 2020 specify when seller delivers to buyer
  • Risk – Incoterms® 2020 specify when risk transfers from seller to buyer. Risk passes from seller to buyer when seller has fulfilled his obligation to deliver the goods
  • Costs – Responsibility of costs passes from seller to buyer at a point up to which the seller is obliged to pay transport (and insurance) costs

Our fifth Incoterm® is CPT – Carriage Paid To (Named Place)

CPT can be used in any transport mode, and the risk transfers from the seller to the buyer as soon as the goods reach the nominated named place/destination and the carrier takes charge of these.

Under the Incoterms® 2020 rules, the CPT rule requires the seller to deliver the goods to its carrier but does not indicate whether that is either at the seller’s premises loaded onto the collecting vehicle or delivered to another premises not unloaded from the seller’s vehicle. The seller must carry out any export formalities and the buyer carries out any import formalities. It is the seller’s responsibility to contract for carriage and of course the cost of that will be built into the selling price. Like FCA, the risk transfers to the buyer immediately when delivery has been made, This rule works well for land transport within the Europe/Central Asia landmass, because often the truck collecting the goods will be the one transporting the goods to the destination.

Quick overview

What are the seller’s obligations?

  • Seller provides commercial invoice and other required documents in paper or electronic form.
  • Seller is responsible for delivery of goods to the carrier at the place of delivery on the agreed date or within the agreed period.
  • Seller is responsible for damage or loss of goods until they are handed over to the carrier at the named point and within the specified time.
  • Seller has to contract or organize the transport of goods to the named place of destination. If such a place does not exist, the seller can choose the point that best suits this purpose.
  • One of the seller obligations is operating according to all transport-related security requirements for transport to the destination.
  • Seller has to carry out and pay for export clearance, as well as assisting the buyer with correct information/paperwork for buyer to do import clearance.
  • Seller counts and weigh goods and, if required, packs the goods at its own expense.
  • Seller informs the buyer about the delivery of goods to the carrier and provides the buyer with documents authorizing the buyer to take over the goods.
  • The seller is not obliged to make a contract of insurance but must provide information for this purpose at the buyer’s request.

What are the buyer’s obligations?

  • Buyer takes up the delivery of the goods.
  • He takes responsibility for damage or loss of goods from the time they have been handed over to the carrier.
  • Buyer accepts documents provided by the seller.
  • Buyer has to carry out and pay for import clearance, as well as assist the seller with information if required for export clearance.
  • Buyer informs the seller about the place and date of delivery.
  • The buyer is not obliged to make a contract of carriage.
  • The buyer is not obliged to make a contract of insurance.

Delivery of goods

If the CPT  Incoterms® rule is applied, the seller must contract for the carriage of the goods and hand them over to the carrier. At this point, the risk passes to the buyer.

Insurance of goods on the terms of Incoterms® 2020 CPT

The involved parties are not required to make a contract of insurance, but it is recommended.

Incoterms 2020 CPT in transport

CPT Incoterms can be used for any mode of transport as well as for multimodal transport.

CPT and other Incoterms rules

Compared to EXW, with the CPT rule, the seller at his expense at the request of the buyer provides him with transport documents, and the buyer is not obliged to contract for the carriage of the goods. Unlike the rule CIP, the buyer does not have to, at the request of the seller, provide the information and documents needed for obtaining insurance.
In comparison with the Incoterms® 2010, for CPT 2020 the seller is not obliged to provide information at the buyer’s request for obtaining insurance.


Carriage Paid To Incoterms 2020 Rule – Key Changes & Updates

The CPT rule has two important places, the place of delivery in the seller’s country and the destination to where the seller contracts the carriage. It is important to not confuse the two.

Despite being recommended in place of CFR for cross-ocean container shipments this rule in practice is largely unworkable for them. This is because in such shipments the buyer wants to only take on the risk of damage or loss of the goods when they have actually been exported. Initially the buyer is not only unaware of when or where delivery has occurred but also to whom, as it will be the seller’s carrier. They do not want to be faced with any possibilities of having to deal with any problems whatsoever in the exporting country. The seller has no obligation to put the goods on board a ship by a given date, but as it is using its own contracted carrier it should be easily able to obtain an on- board bill of lading.

Important note: Even though the carriage may be paid to a final overseas destination the place of delivery risk transfer will be in the exporter’s country.

Workplace mental health

Workplace mental health

Mental Health within the workplace has never been as important as it is today! Did you know that one in 5 Australian workers is currently experiencing a mental health condition? That should be no surprise with all that is going on in the world.

As the owner of a recruitment agency where the unemployment rate is forecast to hit 11%, I find that extremely distressing both personally and professionally.

Unemployment Rates (15+) by State and Territory, June 2020 (%)

It felt like overnight that myself and my team transitioned from Recruitment Consultants to Counsellors. The amount of people that we have heard from that have been affected extremely hard by COVID-19 is distressing and quite hard to hear day after day.

So, I wanted to share some insight into what I think can assist both Employers and Employees to work through this tough period in all of our lives.


Healthy workplaces promote mental health and wellbeing. They are positive and productive and get the best out of everyone in the workplace. Businesses that care about good mental health and wellbeing attract and keep top talent because they’re great places to work. The facts are clear: as well as benefiting employees, a mentally healthy workplace is also better for your bottom line.

  • A healthy workplace provides a positive ROI

You can read more in this Research, which has shown that for every dollar you spend creating a mentally healthy workplace can, on average, result in a positive return on investment of 2.3.

These benefits are derived from a reduction in reduced productivity at work, absenteeism, and compensation claims.

  • Staff will be more engaged

Investing in creating a more mentally healthy workplace is beneficial to all staff. As a result, employees will be more engaged, more motivated, morale will be higher and staff will be more willing to go above and beyond the requirements of their role.

All of this will add even more to your return on investment and makes for a happier and healthier workplace that will retain good staff.

  • Employees are the organisations most important asset

Creating a mentally healthy workplace needs to be as important for organisations as creating a physically healthy workplace. Ultimately, workplace health is a leadership issue, and change must start at the top. Organisational leaders play a critical role in driving policies and practices that promote mental health. They are able to positively influence workplace culture, management practices and the experience of employees.


Work can make us feel good about ourselves and give us a sense of purpose; it’s an important way to help us to protect and improve our mental health and wellbeing. However, sometimes work and life stress can negatively affect our mental health and our ability to do our jobs.

Many of us spend a large part of our days at work so your workplace and how we go about doing our work has a substantial impact on our mental health.

While much of our working environment is determined by others, individually we can take steps that will help to protect and enhance our mental health and wellbeing.

Below are some strategies for managing your work role.

  • Set realistic deadlines and deliver on time
  • Take you annual leave
  • Switch off your technology
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Find ways to reduce stress

COVID-19 has forced all of us to rethink the way we not only work but also live in our “new” day to day lives. Be mindful of what you say to someone and how you say it because no one knows what the other is going through right now.

Stay Safe!

The Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) marked its 53rd anniversary

On 8 August 2020, the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) marked its 53rd anniversary. Looking back on half a century of development, ASEAN has made a tremendous journey since its inception in 1967. The remarkable achievements ASEAN has made, far exceed what the founding fathers of ASEAN had imagined.

From just five Southeast Asian countries, the organisation has doubled in size and has grown to become a family of 10 nations including Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam, living in peace, stability, dialogue and cooperation.

Current ASEAN chairman Pham Binh Minh, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Viet Nam highlighted the following at the virtual official ASEAN Day Celebration in Jakarta on August 8 2020.

“Today, the ASEAN community is a big family of six hundred and fifty million people with a combined GDP of three trillion USD. Translating its vision into actions, ASEAN has been promoting both the interest of our people and peace and prosperity in the Asia – Pacific.
ASEAN is now at a critical juncture. The new dynamism in our geostrategic landscape, emerging regional and global issues require ASEAN to be ever more cohesive and responsive.”
