Logistics is an indispensable part of cross-border e-commerce business, especially for Amazon sellers. The rising cost of FBA not only covers logistics operation cost, but also includes insurance cost, channel distribution and disposal fee, fuel and inflation surcharge.
Various fees continue to rise, making many Amazon FBA sellers complain, and causing the overall operation plan and profit of the sellers to suffer varying degrees of impact.
Therefore, how to choose a more appropriate way of logistics, reduce logistics costs, has become all the sellers concerned about the problem. As a third-party warehouse, DM proposes feasible logistics schemes for warehousing and distribution for sellers so as to reduce their overall logistics costs.
What is the cost composition of warehouse?
1. First-leg transportation costs: logistics costs incurred in transporting goods from domestic to destination warehouses according to different logistics methods;
2. Warehousing fees: services incurred when goods enter warehouses, including product testing, shelving and management fees; And the cost of holding goods in warehouses, usually based on the storage period and the volume occupied by the goods;
3. Delivery fee: According to the logistics system, when the order is pushed to the operating end of the warehouse, the warehouse provides a consignment service in time, and the logistics cost of the product delivered to the customer;
4. Value-added service fees: value-added services such as transit, labeling and replacement, return and exchange services, photography, and cargo detection.
Different from the cross-border logistics transportation
logistics transportation mode may cause problems, such as complicated customs clearance and clearance, international logistics is full, difficult to operate the return and exchange of goods, package track cannot be tracked and queried. The logistics system of the third-party warehouse solves the above problems to a certain extent, and can also effectively improve the store operation and shopping experience.
The third-party warehouse reduce the logistics cost
1.Low storage cost: compared with Amazon FBA, the storage cost of warehouse is relatively lower, so the product profit can be better guaranteed;
2.The use of warehouse timely replenishment for FBA (FBA transfer) : especially during the peak season, in order to timely match the surging market demand, the use of third-party warehouse replenishment for FBA inventory, not only can ensure the aging, but also reduce the international transportation costs caused by the peak season;
3.Standardize the return process to reduce the cost of return: sellers can use warehouses to retest and classify returned products from Amazon: for products with defects or quality problems, sellers can use warehouses for corresponding treatment; For products without quality problems, sellers can use warehouses to repackage, label and resell. This can save 80 percent of logistics costs compared to sending the product back to China from Amazon.
4.Overall transportation cost: choose the overall cost-effective warehouse service, bulk stock to warehouse in advance, sellers can avoid the peak season logistics costs rising period. On the other hand, due to the large quantity of goods, relatively preferential prices can be obtained to a certain extent.
