International special line logistics and international express delivery are common cross-border mail packages for cross-border e-commerce sellers
International express delivery refers to the express logistics business conducted between two or more countries (or regions). Similar to domestic express companies and international express companies、 the main service and timeliness can achieve door-to-door transportation、 customs clearance is fast and efficient、 but the price cost is also relatively high. It is generally applicable to personal mailing of emergency goods、 or cross-border sellers sending goods with high value、 and the cost performance ratio is not high.
Special line express is mainly used to connect cross-border logistics companies with special lines from one country to another、 centralize goods for directional transportation、 and reduce costs through scale effect. Therefore、 the cost performance of international cross-border special lines is much higher than that of international express.
In addition、 cross-border logistics companies that can form a stable transportation scale will not be much slower than international express delivery in terms of efficiency. For example、 I found that the well-known Todropshipping and Daiyou Bao special lines in China take 5-8 working days to reach the United States、 while the reference efficiency of UPS is 4-7 working days、 with a small difference. Therefore、 the cross-border special line logistics has a high cost performance ratio and is suitable for small and medium-sized cross-border sellers to send packages internationally.
There are three forms of overseas warehouse for cross-border e-commerce: FBA、 self built warehouse、 third-party warehouse
In fact、 managing the overseas warehouse is to manage its own goods and ensure that the goods are sufficient without wasting resources. This requires managers to consider sales data、 costs and other aspects to make full use of the overseas warehouse and help the normal supply of goods.
Amazon and overseas warehouse are not contradictory、 on the contrary、 they can complement each other.
Amazon FBA has advantages in order fulfillment、 inventory and distribution. However、 compared with the third-party overseas warehouse、 FBA's storage cost is much higher. It is quite troublesome to return goods and clear up. In addition、 the first transportation cost in the peak season will rise a lot、 and in the peak season、 it will give you problems such as limited inventory and inability to put in the warehouse at one time. While many sellers use FBA as their sales warehouse、 they will choose a reliable third-party overseas warehouse as their secondary replenishment warehouse and return processing warehouse. The overseas warehouse will unpack、 temporarily store or directly send full containers to FBA after receiving the goods.
Precautions for the first warehousing of Amazon FBA:
Be sure to provide the Japanese importer (company or individual)、 and it is almost impossible to complete customs clearance without the cooperation of the importer. (The customs will confirm the local tax number by telephone) - Give it to us for settlement
Notes on import tariff and consumption tax in Japan:
Most of the goods imported from Japan (80-90%) are tariff free、 but 8% of the consumption tax will be paid if the freight and value of goods is more than 10000 yen.
For a small number of products、 the average tax rate is (3-5%)、 such as plastic products、 aluminum products、 etc.、 but the freight and freight value of the express is less than 10、000 yen、 there is no tariff and consumption tax. On the contrary、 if the freight and freight value of the express is more than 10、000 yen、 (3-5%) import tariff and 8% consumption tax shall be paid.
Some famous products are strictly required by Japanese customs、 such as textile products、 which are subdivided into knitting and woven products:
Knitwear (simply understood as elastic clothes and pants、 such as sweaters、 T-shirts、 stockings、 underwear、 etc.) usually has an import tariff of about 10% plus 8% consumption tax when the freight and added value is greater than 1000 yen.
Shuttle fabrics (simply understood as trousers without elasticity、 such as jeans、 etc.) with freight and freight value less than 10000 yen also have no import tariff and consumption tax. On the contrary、 there will be 7-10.9% import tariff and consumption tax.
Leather goods (such as leather bags、 leather shoes、 leather coats、 leather gloves、 etc.) with freight and value higher than 1000 yen will generate 20% import tariff plus 8% consumption
Note: The above description concerning import tariff of Japan shall be subject to the actual verification of Japanese customs.
