How To Choose The Suitable International Shipping Way?
When doing international trade business, the logistics issue that everyone is most concerned about is how to mail the goods to customers with the fastest and most favorable international logistics method . So how do we choose the shipping channel method?
First, we need to think about the nature of goods such as general goods and imitation goods, everyone knows general goods,while Imitation goods refer to imitation of other people’s brands, imitation appearance, imitation logo, without formal authorization certificate.There are many ways for general cargo delivery options for instance the local post express, the postal service has strong customs clearance capabilities, a wide range of delivery and cheap prices.The selection of imitation goods is not as wide as that of general goods, because various countries have strict inspections on imitation brand items and prohibit imports, etc. Usually, imitation goods can go through EMS, postal large packages, postal small packages and other channels. Of course,you can also try DHL,FedEx,UPS, but the price is much more expensive and need to be under great risk. consulting with a shipping company for the specific situation is essential.Second, the speed of logistics is also one of the issue into consideration. For example, the fastest is UPS, DHL, FEDEX and international special lines, etc.within 3-7 days, if it is a Southeast Asian country, it can be delivered within 5 working days. With EMS service, the timeliness can be controlled within 7-10 days. .EMS services are mainly about fast timeliness and good stability. There are also items like large bags, which can be carried in large air bags, but the time limit is about 20 days. If the time limit is low and the price is cheap, you can go through surface mail or land and water channels, and the general time limit is within 30-40. Third, In terms of price, parcels under 2kg can choose postal parcels, E-packet and other channels. If it is more than 2kg and less than 30kg, you can choose China Post large package and HongKong Post large package service. There are also 3 major international express delivery options for goods under 21kg. Of course, when sending international express, there is a point of volume weight and remote cost. If the volume weight is too much heavier than the actual weight, then you have to consider it comprehensively. The same is true for remote fees. Fourth, DHL express mainly in Europe and the United States, Africa, South America have great advantages. UPS mainly goes to Southeast Asia and has obvious advantages. FEDEX is mainly expensive, but it has the advantage of strong customs clearance ability in Central Asia and Eastern Europe. These international expresses have the characteristics of fast timeliness and strong customs clearance capabilities, while they are expensive.
