FBA is Amazon's logistics service, that is, Amazon opens its own platform to third-party sellers, integrates their inventory into Amazon's global logistics network, and provides picking, packaging and terminal delivery services for them, and Amazon charges service fees.
What are the shipping channels in the first FBA journey?
The channel we are talking about is nothing more than which shipping company to choose. Generally, it is divided into fast boats and slow boats. Then the fast boats are divided into Mason Yixing and Evergreen. The following will introduce the specific timeliness of these three fast boat companies.
1. Star Clippers
It will be shipped from Yantian Port, Shenzhen, and shipped to the Port of Los Angeles within 12 working days after sailing. After customs clearance, UPS/FedEx/truck will be responsible for the final delivery. The overall time limit for receipt is 25-30 days. faster.
Compared with Mason Clipper, Star Clipper has lower tariff and faster timeliness. It is the shipping channel selected by Amazon sellers in the Pearl River Delta.
2. Mason Clippers
Mason Express ships with six cuts and three departures. It is loaded from Shanghai Port and arrives at the port within 9-12 working days after sailing. After customs clearance, UPS Express will be responsible for terminal delivery. The overall time limit for receipt is 25-30 days, the shipping schedule is stable, and the exclusive terminal , The port is not blocked, the logistics timeliness is more guaranteed, and the delivery of built-in batteries, supporting batteries and other items is supported.
FBA in the United States is the abbreviation of Fulflment by Amazon, which is simply understood as Amazon logistics. It is a one-stop logistics service provided by Amazon including warehousing, picking and packaging, delivery, payment, customer service and return processing. So how should we go to see the freight forwarder and quote us?
1. Division: Due to the large land area of the United States, there will be divisions on the quotation table for the first journey of the United States FBA. According to the beginning of the zip code, the United States is divided into the West, the United States, and the United States.
2. Double-clearance tax line: The fee includes customs duties, customs clearance fees, freight and UPS/FEDEX delivery fees in the latter part.
3. Surcharge: Due to the relatively high taxes on some products, such as clothes, bags, shoes (referred to as textiles), a surcharge of 1~2 yuan/kg will be added to the list price. Some products are made of wood, such as wood. Commodity inspection is required, so if the logistics company only screenshots the quotation sheet for you, be sure to ask if your products have surcharges or miscellaneous fees.
1. FBA special line (air + delivery): first use air freight to the local area and then use local express delivery to deliver to Amazon warehouse. The time limit is slightly slower than that of international express delivery, but the price is also much cheaper. It is very convenient to enter the warehouse without reservation. US FBA special line (Empty + send) double clearance tax package, very fast and cost-effective.
2. FBA shipping first shipping + local customs clearance + destination country delivery: The time limit is slightly longer, and the U.S. FBA first way has a longer time limit. If the trailer is sent to Amazon, it generally needs to make an appointment for storage, which is a little more troublesome than express delivery. Because the price of FBA in the United States is cheap, if it is calculated according to 1CBM=167kg, it is a few dollars 1kg, which is much cheaper than express delivery, suitable for non-urgent replenishment. Most sellers will choose to go by sea.
3. International express: such as DHL, UPS, Fedex, etc., the general price of more than 20kg is still good, the aging is fast, and it is suitable for emergency replenishment. I feel that the FBA first-way express delivery in the United States is free of reservation, but it should be noted that Amazon is not the main body of customs clearance, and it does not bear the responsibility of wheat customs clearance and tax payment. It is necessary to make declarations and prepaid customs duties and prepare local customs clearance importers in advance.
