For medium and large products、 the cost of logistics and express delivery is a big part、 and the seller's top priority is to give consideration to freight and timeliness、 which directly determines whether he can have greater competitiveness in the competition with peers. The following factors need to be considered when selecting the overseas warehouse storage and final process one piece delivery mode: overseas warehouse location、 final process channel and storage system、 response speed、 ability to deal with emergencies、 peripheral supporting services、 etc.
The location of overseas warehouse mainly depends on whether it is distributed in the region of its main purchasing group、 whether it is close to the port、 whether it covers the United States、 etc. Among them、 whether it is close to the port will affect the timeliness and cost of trailer warehousing、 and the other two will directly affect the high and low cost of the final journey and the length of the timeliness、 which cannot be ignored.
However、 the tail channel is equally important. Besides the high and low cost、 we should also consider the stability of the tail channel and the ability to deal with emergencies such as stock explosion. It is better to choose your own tail channel. If it is the tail channel of others、 the price (changed) is not superior. Besides、 the response speed to deal with various problems is also unmatched. The experience is greatly discounted、 and even the problem cannot be solved at all. In addition、 such as the storage system、 surrounding facilities、 and whether the warehouse specializes in medium and large items are also factors that sellers need to consider when selecting cooperative overseas warehouses.
Surcharge or additional charge refers to the additional expenses or economic losses incurred by the ship owner when transporting goods due to various reasons of the ship、 cargo、 port and other aspects. Surcharges are various、 and will be cancelled or new surcharges will be formulated as some circumstances change. The following are some common surcharge categories for your reference:
Bunker Surcharge or Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF)
Devaluation Surcharge or Currency Adjustment Factor (CAF)
Suez Canal Surcharge
Port Congestion Surcharge
Heavy Lift Additional
Long Length Additional

At present、 most of them will provide a consignment service to better meet the seller's selection、 delivery and other issues、 especially for novice sellers. Of course、 the seller also needs to find a partner to support the delivery of one piece of goods、 so that the goods can be delivered in time.
For overseas warehouses that issue goods on behalf of others、 most of their service types also include export tax refund、 customs clearance、 distribution、 return processing、 return inspection、 overseas after-sales maintenance、 transit service、 and the service of pushing and changing labels.
Therefore、 the option of issuing overseas warehouse on behalf should not be sloppy.
Now let's share how to choose an appropriate overseas warehouse.
Whether there is a mature management system
For sellers、 customers、 goods、 overseas warehouses and information sharing and docking with logistics companies are very important、 so it depends on whether the management system matches the integration needs of their own enterprises、 such as order management、 waybill management、 etc. This is essential for a mature overseas warehouse enterprise.
Whether there is enough storage area and operation capacity
It is believed that we all often encounter the problem of "overseas warehouse explosion"、 which will lead to problems in the peak season turnover. Therefore、 the cooperative overseas warehouse enterprises must have a large inventory and professional operation capacity、 which can largely avoid these problems and enable the expansion of e-commerce sellers.
Whether there is a professional service team
The professional service team can provide cross-border e-commerce sellers with a one-stop service system、 starting from the delivery of goods to overseas warehouses. This can minimize the problems of goods overseas、 and at the same time、 it will be more coordinated and harmonious when connecting with customers.
PS: When selecting overseas warehouses、 we must make detailed adjustments、 such as whether the person in charge of the overseas warehouse has many years of overseas life experience、 and whether he has many years of operation experience in the logistics industry.
Clear billing mode
Not all overseas warehouses are reliable. Some overseas warehouse enterprises will attract you with low prices、 but there are many surcharges behind. Therefore、 when choosing、 sellers must find clear and definite charges and prices、 and there is no ambiguous overseas warehouse.
PS: In addition、 it is necessary to know in detail whether the geographical location of the warehouse is convenient and whether the service team is all Chinese. Because if the shipment is urgent、 most Chinese people accept overtime、 which can increase the processing speed of goods.
