The law now covers fulfillment providers such as warehouse operators or toll manufacturers. They can only carry on business if their customers have completed registration. Fulfillment providers provide at least two of the following services for goods they do not own:
By the way, parcel delivery services and other cargo transportation companies are not considered fulfillment providers and are not covered by the law.
