The benefits of The NEW Shanghai Free Trade Zone?

Hi InterNationsForumers,

I am currently planning to open a trading company that imports to China, from mostly Thailand. My main import line would be FMCG, including cooking ingredients, and snacks. In the future after my supplier in Thailand can acquire the AQSIQ licence I would be trying to import fresh fruits, and vegetables.

I was wondering what benefits does the FTZ in Shanghai will have for me? and After reading about it I did not really see a benefit for me to actually open a company in that Zone? or the need to move large amount of money outside? If anybody has some good advice please or insight about this please let me know?

Is there really a benefit for small scale trading company to open in free trade zone?
If there is what are those benefits?

If the logistic is outsource to a 3pl for shipping I have a benefit of receiving cheaper cost of shipping but that's about it?

Please enlighten me on this matter all comments are appreciated.
