What is the reason for the slow Amazon FBA logistics?For overseas Amazon FBA logistics, most of them can be delivered within 20-30 days. Compared with domestic logistics, this time of nearly a month is very long. If the seller is making high-margin products, he can choose the faster direct shipping method or the air freight mode. The two shipping methods will be faster, of course, the shipping fee will be correspondingly more expensive. The time of direct delivery logistics will be much faster than ordinary transportation, generally between 12-18 days. So when most merchants choose ordinary logistics, how will Amazon FBA logistics be affected?
1. The impact of customs clearance documents
Commodities exported to foreign countries need to pass customs inspection. Only after passing the customs security inspection will the logistics be released, which is also the largest part of the time limit. If the documents prepared by the merchant are not perfect, the goods will stay at the customs and cannot be cleared smoothly, and the merchant will need to submit the documents twice, which will waste time and affect the logistics timeliness of the goods.
2. Customs issues in the destination country
1. Customs spot check
Just like sending out logistics, they will also carry out random inspection on the goods when they arrive at the destination country. If your goods are selected for inspection, you will have to wait for a few days for inspection. Generally speaking, it will be released within 3 working days. .
When the customs checks your tax bills, if they think that your tax payment is inconsistent with the tax they think your goods should pay, then you need to go to the tax bureau to make up the tax or show relevant certificates to prove your excise tax Only when the payment is consistent with the item will you pass the customs
The problem of the shipped items itself, some items can be shipped in some countries, but not all countries can, and each country has its own regulations, so when shipping, you must carefully check the shipping destination Whether that country can accept your item, otherwise it will be withheld, which is a relatively troublesome and time-consuming matter. The most typical ones are that prohibited items are definitely not allowed to be sent, and there are also brand imitation products. European and American countries attach great importance to intellectual property rights, and the customs check the brand more strictly. If it is a counterfeit product without an import and export certificate, it will be returned or detained, which will affect the logistics timeliness of the goods.
4, The impact of logistics channels
Choose different logistics and transportation channels, then the corresponding timeliness will be different. FBA head-to-head express delivery is direct, with fast timeliness, but at the same time, the freight is also more expensive. FBA head-to-head air freight, the timeliness is in the middle, and the cost is in the middle. FBA head sea freight, slow timeliness and low cost.
5. Other factors
Force majeure factors such as natural disasters, the need to wait in line during off-peak seasons, and worker strikes in various countries will all affect the logistics timeliness of goods.
