News > China's cross-border e-commerce providers mainly choose the cross-border e-commerce logistics mode
Cross border e-commerce, referred to as cross-border e-commerce for short, refers to an international business activity in which transaction subjects belonging to different customs territories reach transactions through e-commerce platform and realize commodity delivery through cross-border logistics. The development of cross-border e-commerce and cross-border logistics are closely related and complementary. With the rapid development of cross-border e-commerce, cross-border logistics also develops with the development of cross-border e-commerce. At present, domestic cross-border logistics is mainly delivered through third-party logistics, mainly including commercial express, special line, postal packet, overseas warehouse, etc.

1. Commercial Express

At present, commercial express mainly focuses on DHL, UPS, FedEx and TNT. It has a huge global logistics information network and developed global distribution network. It has a high reputation in the world and is the leader of international express business. International Express has the advantages of fast delivery signing time, full tracking of logistics information, wide transportation range (basically arriving all over the world), strong customs clearance ability, good service and low package loss rate. It can well meet customers' requirements for logistics time and logistics information. However, the price of international express is too expensive, which is the most significant deficiency.

At the same time, domestic SF, four links and one Da also continue to explore the overseas express market and develop rapidly. SF to the United States, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and other international express business; Yuantong to the United States, Australia, Vietnam, Europe and other international express business; China to the United Kingdom, Russia, South Korea and other international business, have been rapid development.

EMS international express is also an express service often used by cross-border e-commerce sellers. Because it is a special postal service run by postal services of various countries, it has priority in customs, aviation, postal and other aspects, can basically reach all regions of the world, and the price is more convenient than DHL, UPS, FEDEX and TNT.

2. Special line

The special lines we hear most are the American special line, the European special line, the Middle East special line, the Australian special line, the Southeast Asia special line, the Russian special line, etc. from the names of these special lines, we can find that these special lines we go now are basically set up according to the region, transport goods to the destination by sea, land and air, and cooperate with foreign logistics companies for distribution.

The special line centralizes the delivery of goods to a country or region, with large business volume, high cost performance, easy customs clearance, lower logistics costs and expenses than national express, and smaller packet loss rate. It is very suitable for sellers who only send goods to a country or region. However, its distribution scope is limited to specific countries or regions, the domestic collection scope and global coverage are limited, and the business scope is not wide.

3. Postal packet

Postal has a very wide coverage in the world. Many domestic small and medium-sized e-commerce sellers choose this mode of transportation. According to statistics, China Post accounts for half of this mode of transportation. Postal parcels are easy to operate, simple procedures, a very wide range of delivery, cheap price and wide service network. China postal parcels can send common goods to 241 countries or regions around the world, while international postal parcels can receive some live products, which is its biggest advantage, International Post (such as Singapore Post) is also an important partner of cross-border e-commerce logistics in China. However, the postal packet transportation time is long, the timeliness is slow, the logistics information tracking service lags behind or even has no service, the packet loss rate is high, and the postal level of countries around the world is different (for example, the registered package of China Post charges 0.0715 yuan / g in Singapore and 0.176 yuan / g in Egypt). It is difficult to realize the desire of reducing costs through postal cooperation between countries, regions and regions.

4. Overseas warehouse

Overseas warehouse is a storage equipment established overseas. Domestic cross-border e-commerce sellers transport goods to overseas warehouses, which are responsible for one-stop services such as goods storage, sorting and distribution. The seller will transport the goods to the foreign warehouse for storage in advance. After the customer orders, the overseas warehouse will directly deliver the goods to the customer, which greatly reduces the logistics time and improves the logistics efficiency and timeliness

Overseas warehouse has fast delivery speed, low delivery logistics cost, high customer logistics experience, can effectively avoid warehouse discharge and other problems in peak season, good customer purchase experience, and can reduce the cross-border logistics defect transaction rate. However, the storage cost and warehouse building cost are high, the capital turnover is slow, and the accidents (fire, customs fasteners, etc.) of goods abroad are uncontrollable
