In the rapid development of cross-border e-commerce, logistics problems such as high logistics costs, slow distribution, and low service levels have constrained the pace of e-commerce development. These problems have become an urgent problem to be solved in the development of e-commerce. Cross-border logistics is long-distance, long-term, and costly. In the middle, it involves related issues such as customs clearance procedures. These procedures have caused many sellers to break their brains.
In the face of a variety of logistics solutions and service providers, how to choose the right solution? Today, I will introduce some logistics models for cross-border e-commerce for your reference.
The first one is the postal parcel. According to incomplete statistics, 70% of China's cross-border e-commerce export business is delivered by the postal system, which is the most commonly used logistics method for cross-border e-commerce sellers in China. The advantages of postal services are that the network basically covers the whole world and the logistics channels are wide.
The disadvantages of postal parcels are generally out of the country by private parcels, so this is not convenient for customs statistics, so they cannot enjoy normal export tax rebates. And because the speed is slower, the packet loss rate is quite high.
The second is international express delivery. International express delivery has high requirements for the provision, collection and management of information. The advantages are fast speed, good service and low packet loss rate. It is very convenient for developed countries in Europe and America.
Her inferior price is generally more expensive, due to the price changes. Generally, cross-border e-commerce sellers will only use the customer when the customer strongly requests timeliness, and will charge the customer for shipping.
The third type is dedicated logistics. This is to transport goods to foreign countries by air cabin, and then cooperate with the company to deliver in the destination country. This is a popular logistics method.
The advantage of this method is that it can concentrate large quantities of goods to the destination, and can reduce the cost through the scale effect, so the price will be lower than the commercial express, but the speed is faster than the postal packet, and the packet loss rate is relatively low. The disadvantage is that compared with the postal parcel, the freight cost is much higher, and the scope of domestic collection is relatively limited, and the coverage area needs to be expanded.
