After a week-long slow life, Shenzhen finally ushered in the unblocking, and the company has resumed normal production and operations. The delivery work that had been stagnant due to the epidemic has also ushered in a restart…
In the early morning of March 21, many Shenzhen freight forwarders began to swipe the Moments, announcing that the warehouse was officially unsealed, and normal receipt and delivery were resumed. The painful life of transferring warehouses finally came to an end, and the cross-border circle suddenly entered a kind of "retaliatory delivery". status.
However, on the one hand, there is the explosion of warehouses brought about by the one-week shutdown, and on the other hand, the new shipping policy that will be implemented on April 1st. How can cross-border sellers cooperate with their own business development rhythm to efficiently deliver goods and stabilize profits ?
Reasonable arrangement of delivery rhythm
Reduce the risk of out-of-stock caused by liquidation
Although most of the freight forwarding companies have resumed normal receipt of goods at present, under the influence of the one-week shutdown of the Shenzhen warehouse, there are many outbound orders, a large number of goods have accumulated in the port, and the warehouse has to queue up to deal with the backlog of outbound orders during the shutdown period. Sellers of goods may face queues.
In order to avoid failure to replenish in time, sellers also need to pay attention to the dynamic news of sea and air transportation in a timely manner, and adjust the delivery plan appropriately.
Sellers can use the replenishment kanban of Linkstar ERP to estimate the out-of-stock time in advance. If the goods cannot be put on the shelves before the out-of-stock through the shipping channel, they can appropriately split a part of the goods and send them by air to distribute the risks reasonably.
Through Linkstar ERP, sellers can quickly view the historical original sales and denoising sales of products in the past 90 days, as well as the real-time inventory status, out-of-stock time, recommended purchase quantity, recommended delivery quantity, arrival time in normal mode and overseas warehouse transit mode. Delivery time and out-of-stock time.
In addition, for the situation that the goods cannot be delivered in time by sea, Starstar ERP can also automatically calculate the total amount of replenishment needed, and then accurately calculate the out-of-stock volume between air and sea according to the timeliness of air and sea, and then split it up. For the replenishment volume of air freight, the rest is split into the replenishment volume of sea freight to help sellers arrange delivery reasonably.
If the two channels are unable to enter the warehouse in time, the seller can also adjust the price appropriately to control the sales rhythm, so as to avoid affecting the weight and ranking of the Listing because the goods are sold out.
Amazon's new policy will be officially implemented
How to effectively prevent the shipment from being rejected?
After the Amazon Shipping New Policy is officially implemented on April 1, the following 3 types of shipments will be rejected by Amazon:
1. Delete the shipment after the inbound plan is approved.
2. Send the shipment on the wrong route.
3. Incomplete shipments, such as shipments in the "Cancelled" or "Deleted" status.
In order to prevent shipments from being rejected, which may lead to inability to replenish in time, and increase the cost of additional processing and delivery, sellers need to clarify the quantity, volume, content and other information that may affect shipment distribution when creating a shipment plan.
After the transportation plan is approved, ensure that the goods are sent to the designated fulfillment center according to the plan, and try to avoid changing the approved inbound plan . shipment.
In addition, after the multi-destination shipping plan is approved, remember not to delete any shipments that are shipped or route the shipment differently than planned, and ensure that the shipment number label is clearly visible and delivered to the address on the shipment label within 30 days .
