What is the British special line logistics:
The British special line logistics refers to the part of the China-Europe special train to the United Kingdom, which usually refers to the service items of air transportation and local delivery. It is a transport service mode sent directly to the UK. The mode is that the front end is transported to the UK by air plane, and then the service provider in the UK cooperates with the service provider for customs clearance and extraction, and finally handed over to the courier company responsible for local delivery.
As of April 2019, China-Europe freight trains have operated more than 11,000 trains, with 65 operating lines, reaching 44 cities in 15 European countries.
When cross-border e-commerce sellers sell products, in addition to conventional shipping, air and overseas warehouse logistics, they can also choose European railway lines to send products.
Among the China-Europe special trains currently opened, none of them are directly to the UK. Generally, products are shipped to other countries in Europe and then transited. For example, the seller's products can be sent to Duisburg, Germany through the European special train, and then transferred to the freight train bound for London, England.
Special line logistics can generally be divided into three categories: air freight lines, sea freight lines and railway lines
Air freight line: the fastest time-effective line logistics can generally be controlled to arrive within 5-10 days, depending on what type of products the seller is taking;
Shipping line: the special line logistics with the largest transportation volume and the widest coverage. At present, 2/3 of international freight is completed by sea, and the time limit is about 30-45 days to the UK;
Special railway line: The special railway line is quite satisfactory, and it does not have an advantage in timeliness and transportation volume, but it is about 10-15 days faster than shipping by sea, and the price is slightly more expensive than that by sea shipping. It is more suitable for certain requirements on timeliness but not particularly strict. goods.
The three lines have their own characteristics, and sellers can choose flexibly according to their own products. It should be noted that if the seller's products are magnetized (motors, motors), charged (mobile phones, mobile power supplies), liquid and wood products, they are sensitive products and need to go through special channels.
The UK special line was initially opened to provide one-to-one dedicated transportation services from China to the UK, so as to provide faster logistics services for cross-border e-commerce companies and e-commerce sellers. Later, it was slowly extended to provide freight services for Amazon FBA users. The common combination of special line services in the United Kingdom is that after the goods are delivered to the United Kingdom by air, they are handed over to the local cooperative courier companies Hermes, Yodel, DPD, Royal Mail, etc. to be responsible for delivery. This special-line combined transportation mode breaks the traditional air transportation mode in the past. It is only responsible for the front-end transportation to the airport and port, and the back-end still needs the recipient to handle the cumbersome processing.
The emergence of a new model of British special line has provided broader services for the development of international e-commerce and international logistics. Later, the application of this model gradually expanded to Europe, America, Southeast Asia and many other countries and regions. The main object of the service is Amazon FBA freight, which has further improved more services, including customs clearance, customs duties and other services.
Such one-stop all-inclusive service brings smoother and more convenient logistics for cross-border e-commerce, and also greatly promotes the development of international e-commerce.
