What is the difference between FBA head-way air delivery, Shanghai delivery and express delivery?
1. Differences in transportation methods
FBA first-way sea delivery, air delivery and express delivery have obvious differences in freight methods. Shipping is the use of sea routes to use ships to transport, which belongs to shipping. Air dispatch and express delivery use air planes for cargo transportation, and there are obvious differences in the means of transportation.

Air delivery price: Take the US FBA first journey as an example, the air delivery price is about 30 yuan/KG-45 yuan/KG, which is greatly affected by the off-peak season of logistics.
Express price: The price of express direct delivery is about 45 yuan/KG-65 yuan/KG, which is greatly affected by the low and peak seasons of logistics.
Shipping price: Shanghai shipping price is between 7 yuan/KG-16 yuan/KG, which is affected by the low and high season of logistics.
Summary: The price of direct express delivery and air delivery is relatively high, which is greatly affected by the low and peak seasons of logistics. The price of Haipai is lower, and it is less affected by the low and peak seasons of logistics.
Time limit for air dispatch: Take the first journey from the United States to FBA as an example, the time limit for air dispatch in Hong Kong is 7-15 days, and the time limit for air dispatch in mainland China is 7-10 days.
Express delivery time: DHL express delivery, UPS express delivery, FedEx express delivery, the overall delivery time is 3-7 days.
Shipping delivery timeliness: It can be divided into ordinary express and fast shipping, ordinary express is an ordinary shipping channel, and the aging time is about 30 days to 40 days. Clippers, such as Yixing Clippers and Mason Clippers, have an aging period of about 20-30 days.

4. Different customs clearance methods
Air Delivery Customs Clearance Method: After Air Canada Delivery arrives in the United States, it adopts FCL customs clearance and FCL customs clearance. If there is any problem with one ticket, it may be detained by customs.
Express customs clearance method: Express adopts the single-ticket customs clearance mode, single-ticket goods clearance, and customs clearance is fast. Problems with one shipment of goods will not affect the customs clearance of other goods. However, the sampling rate of express customs clearance is relatively high. If the declaration is unreasonable, it is easy to be found and lead to buckle.
Customs clearance method for shipping by sea: The customs clearance method of Shanghai shipping is the same as that of air shipping, and it is also the customs clearance of the whole container. The random inspection rate of FCL customs clearance is relatively low, but once there is a problem in customs clearance, it is more troublesome to deal with, and an agent with customs clearance capability must be selected to cooperate with the delivery.
Air dispatch stability: Air dispatch has good stability, but in the peak logistics season, warehouses will be lined up due to insufficient logistics resources, and the time limit for arranging warehouses is short.
Stability of express delivery: The stability of express delivery is the best. Due to the strong capacity and small volume of goods, there is usually no warehouse arrangement and delay. The most stable FBA first-way logistics.
Shipping delivery stability: Haipai has poor stability and is greatly affected by the natural environment. In peak seasons, there will be port congestion, increased customs inspection rates, and insufficient truck manpower. Yes, Haipai’s freight delivery time is greatly increased.
6. Differences in the delivery process
Air-delivery freight process: The first journey starts from Hong Kong or Guangzhou and Shenzhen and flies directly to the United States. After customs clearance, Kapai/FedEx is responsible for the terminal delivery, and multiple carriers are responsible for the entire freight process.
Express freight process: Hong Kong or Guangzhou and Shenzhen fly directly to the United States. After customs clearance, the carrier is responsible for the terminal transportation. The transportation continuity is strong. A single carrier is responsible for the entire freight process.
