ZHENGZHOU - The first shipment of frozen meat imported from New Zealand arrived in Central China's Zhengzhou city, Henan province, on Monday.

The shipment, 13 tons of nine different types of meat, departed Tauranga Port on Aug 8 and arrived in Qingdao Port on Sept 2 before being transported by refrigerated truck to Zhengzhou.

Zhengzhou is home to China's first inland port for imported meat. The port follows a 7-day-24-hour working system, which slashes inspection time to seven to ten days from 30 days in coastal ports.

The Chinese government reached an agreement with New Zealand in March on importing frozen meat. The shipment was the first imported by an inland port.
