The peak season is here, and the warehouse is bursting! The most "difficult" thing this year is cross-border sellers, and they can't stop worrying.
Worry about the loss and delay in the transportation of goods;
To worry about whether the selection can impress consumers;
To worry about the backlog of inventory and sales have not seen growth …
It's better now, but I have to worry about Amazon's reduction of warehouse capacity and strikes at any time, which will lead to "explosion"!
The thing is this, according to foreign media reports: Many Amazon warehouses have become a mess, and some warehouses are seriously bursting. This year, 66 US warehouses have been cancelled or closed. The most outrageous thing is that Amazon is not only abnormally slow in receiving the warehouse, but it has not even been put on the shelves for more than 50 days. Asking Amazon's customer service about the warehouse situation has a unified reply routine: persuade the seller to wait again in a different way.
Among them, most sellers said that their goods waited at least 10-20 days to be put on the shelves, and the goods of Amazon sellers were affected to varying degrees. This matter has aroused heated discussions among many sellers on a cross-border forum:
Seller A: Why is Amazon closing so many warehouses, laying off so many people, and saving so many operating costs, but still increasing the FBA fees for our sellers…
Seller B: I have IND9, the red slip I issued, and it was delivered on August 29. It is still unregistered. It has been more than 50 days, and I will not issue IND9 in the future.
Seller C: Why is Amazon laying off warehouse staff, do you not want to do it?
Seller D: GYR2 has been in the warehouse for more than ten days without any movement! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Due to Amazon's warehouse explosion, many sellers have to wait a long time for their goods to be put on the shelves, but Ye Changmeng is prone to missing parts and missing parts. So, why is Amazon's warehouse bursting recently?
#Why Amazon has exploded recently?
There are two main reasons why Amazon warehouses have been flooded recently.
One is that Amazon has laid off nearly 100,000 employees this year in order to pass on cost pressures . More than half of them are workers in Amazon's warehouses and distribution centers. As the volume of goods increases during the peak season, the warehouse has insufficient capacity after layoffs, and the efficiency of handling goods is relatively slow.
Second, many Amazon warehouse workers in the United States launched a strike to protest. Black Friday and Christmas stocking seasons are coming, and strikes have broken out in many Amazon warehouses in the United States, posing a threat to Amazon's peak season sales. The reasons for the strikes include overloaded workload, low wages, and poor working conditions. There have been strikes at Amazon warehouses near four areas, including Cross Terminal near Chicago, a distribution station and fulfillment center near Atlanta, and one of Amazon's large air cargo hubs in Southern California.
#Summary of Amazon warehouses in various countries
In the end, I also compiled a summary of the recent Amazon warehouse liquidation in Europe and the United States, hoping to provide reference for sellers and friends to ship, so as to reduce unnecessary losses caused by "liquidation".
