What are the functions of overseas warehouses?What are the functions of overseas warehouses? What are the advantages of shipping from overseas warehouses? The simple understanding of overseas warehouses is that overseas warehouses established in other countries are generally used for e-commerce services. The goods are exported from the country and stored in the warehouse of the country by sea, land and air. After the buyer places an order through the online shopping platform, the seller only needs to operate through the overseas warehouse system and issue instructions to the overseas warehouse to complete the order. It can be sent from the country where the country is located, which greatly shortens the time required for the delivery of goods from the country. The advantages of overseas warehouses are so obvious, so what are the specific roles of overseas warehouses? What are the advantages of shipping from overseas warehouses? Today, I will briefly share several major features and advantages of overseas warehouses, hoping to help sellers.
The role of overseas warehouses:
1. drop shipping
The seller sends the bulk stocked products from the country to the overseas warehouse, and then the staff of the overseas warehouse will check and put them on the shelves. When a buyer places an order, the seller only needs to issue a delivery order in the overseas warehouse management system, and the warehouse staff will follow the instructions. Delivery instructions are delivered locally in foreign countries.
However, with the continuous development of cross-border e-commerce in recent years, if the original business model is still based on the original one-piece delivery of small packages, overseas warehouses will face rising warehouse operating costs and labor costs. Automation, FBA competition, and Amazon's last mile layout have a big impact on the development of enterprises.
2. change labels
Amazon needs to put a corresponding label on the warehouse, and a label corresponds to a box of goods, which is similar to a code. If the label is wrong or there is a problem with the account, the label needs to be replaced in the overseas warehouse, and then restocked.
The most common situation is to combine FBA and third-party overseas warehouses. First, send the goods to the overseas warehouse of the destination country by air or sea. Then, if the storage capacity allows, the overseas warehouse is required to affix the FBA label and use the local warehouse. Express delivery to the FBA warehouse, while shipping from FBA and overseas warehouses, in order to reduce the risk of delays in some links.
4. Other value-added services
Overseas warehouses with a single function are easy to be replaced, coupled with the continuous increase in operating costs and the continuous dilution of profit margins, which directly affects the development of enterprises. It is necessary to evolve from the original one-piece drop shipping idea to a multi-functional logistics transit center. Mature overseas warehouse service providers can provide one-stop overseas warehousing services, including FBA return and exchange, warehouse transfer, re-printing or labeling, FBA product testing, sorting, customs duty payment, insurance and other value-added services.
5. Integration of transportation resources
Overseas warehouse service providers consider that due to the relatively small number and high frequency of cross-border e-commerce B2C orders, in order to better integrate the upstream supplier resources of domestic warehouses and the downstream customer resources of foreign warehouses, to meet the logistics timeliness The domestic warehouse is used as the end point of the joint distribution, and the overseas warehouse is the starting point of the joint distribution, so as to realize the effective integration of transportation resources, achieve the scale effect of transportation, and reduce the distribution cost.
1. By choosing overseas warehouses, enterprises can freely control the delivery progress and warehouse management, and produce and deliver goods according to the sales situation of their own stores, especially in special circumstances, if Chinese cross-border sellers have their own cooperation in the United States. Warehouse, you can deal with it freely.
2. If the company uses a cooperative overseas warehouse to deliver goods, the delivery address shows the destination country, which can make the customer's trust and delivery efficiency very high, and the retail price of the product will naturally become very high. .
3. Cooperative overseas warehouses can also provide more flexible and convenient after-sales services, such as product damage. At present, the biggest problem of cross-border retailing should be that it cannot provide complete after-sales local services, and overseas warehouses are very good solutions. this problem.
