What are the advantages of Amazon FBA head logistics?As more and more domestic e-commerce sellers join cross-border e-commerce, the competition in the industry is increasing. For active sellers, this is an opportunity, and for passive sellers, it is a troublesome thing. In any case, there will be competition in all walks of life. Only by learning in this field and constantly optimizing your own strength can you gain a firm foothold in the industry. At present, the Amazon platform is the most engaged in cross-border e-commerce, so what are the advantages of FBA logistics on the Amazon platform?
Amazon Logistics' first leg service is specially created for B2C cross-border e-commerce sellers. Compared with the traditional sea freight LCL service, the starting volume is lower, the charging items are simpler, and the total transportation cost is lower, which effectively reduces the operating costs of cross-border e-commerce sellers.
2. Diversification of products and transportation methods
FBA is suitable for the first shipment of various products. If the seller is in a hurry to replenish the goods, air and express shipping can be used. If you want to save more costs, you can use sea freight, there are a variety of shipping methods to meet the needs of different sellers.
3. Assist the seller in customs clearance and reduce the risk of customs clearance
Using fba allows the company to help the seller complete customs clearance, avoiding the forced return of goods and commodities, and the returned goods need to pay high return shipping fees. With this guarantee, it is undoubtedly worthy of everyone's choice.
4. It can reduce the risk of FBA inventory backlog
The goods stored in the FBA warehouse are related to the seller’s account. The same product cannot be sold in multiple accounts, otherwise the same product may be out of stock in the FBA warehouse, and the sales in other warehouses will be relatively low. Then you can use the FBA overseas warehouse to transfer in batches. Effectively avoid the above risks and help sellers maximize profits.
5. FBA delivery
It is much cheaper to use sea freight for FBA head-to-head transportation than air freight, so most Amazon sellers in the market use sea freight. In addition to being affected by weather problems, almost everything else can be delivered on time. The most important point is that the price of sea freight is relatively cheap, which can help sellers reduce operating costs.
1. The time of establishment of the company - the degree of risk resistance
The threshold for cross-border e-commerce logistics is relatively low, and it can be completed by renting a small warehouse and recruiting several salesmen. Such companies are often unreliable, established for a short period of time, have low ability to resist risks, and do not have much financial support. Once they encounter the problem of customs seizure, they may be powerless.
2. Service items
Service items are the foundation of a freight forwarding company. Now many FBA logistics can provide one-stop services such as door-to-door delivery, customs clearance, and delivery, which can meet the basic logistics needs of customers. For the delivery time, it is mainly related to whether your goods can enter the FBA warehouse on time.
3. Different head-trip routes have different advantages
If shipping to the US, there is another shipping method. There are sea express ships and ordinary freighters, and the delivery time is about one week. Air freight can be divided into direct and transit, and the time difference will be 2-3 days. Due to the different channels, there will be a certain impact on the timeliness of transportation, so you must first choose a logistics company with FBA to meet different needs.
4. FBA first leg logistics qualification
The qualification of FBA headway logistics company is the basis of all cooperation. Now there are many logistics companies, but the quality is uneven. When choosing, check whether the company's qualifications meet the standards. Any industry needs a standard to measure the quality of a company, and the logistics industry is the same.
5. Business scope
Under normal circumstances, it takes at least 6 months to polish a line. After many times of grinding, we can know which places need special attention and which links need to be optimized, and finally form a fixed SOP. Sellers need to have sufficient understanding of this when choosing an Amazon FBA head-to-head company. For example, some companies have advantages in shipping, and some companies have advantages in European routes. Although some companies have slightly higher prices, they are quicker and allow sellers to wait less.
