According to the observation of Taobo Supply Chain, an overseas warehouse service provider in the United States, there are currently many merchants who choose to be Amazon in the United States. Many merchants ship their goods through overseas warehouses in the United States, which can provide sellers with a better advantage. How did the warehouse do it? Let's find out together.
Overseas warehouse is the product of cross-border e-commerce. It is a domestic enterprise that transports commodities to pre-built or leased warehouses in target market countries for storage, and then responds to local sales orders and distributes directly from local warehouses. A mode of picking, packing and dispatching to complete transit or local distribution.
At present, overseas warehouses are mainly divided into three categories: self-built overseas warehouses, platform overseas warehouses and third-party overseas warehouses. Amazon FBA warehouses are one type of platform overseas warehouses.
Advantages of Amazon's US overseas warehouse:
1 Crack the quantity limit, and the peak season sales are guaranteed
Compared with FBA, overseas warehouse shipments are not affected by Amazon's delivery/replenishment restrictions. Sellers can send goods to overseas warehouses and then create FBA shipments from overseas warehouses to FBA warehouses for transit, or use overseas warehouses. The "drop shipping" function directly completes the delivery of orders, avoiding the problem of out-of-stock products due to quantity restrictions in peak season product sales.
2 Low logistics cost, which is conducive to product profit optimization
At present, the global logistics supply chain is tense, and the logistics cost is constantly rising. If the seller can send the shipment to the overseas warehouse in advance in the off-season when the logistics cost is low, the logistics cost of the product will be greatly reduced. At the same time, compared with self-delivery packages sent from China, overseas warehouses reduce logistics and distribution costs by means of collective delivery; for medium and large-volume products, overseas warehouses help optimize product profits.
3 Realize local delivery and shorten logistics time
When the overseas warehouse is used as a transit warehouse, the seller can directly transfer the goods from the overseas warehouse located in the country of sale to the FBA warehouse, which greatly shortens the logistics time, replenishes the FBA goods more quickly and conveniently, and prevents the goods from being out of stock. For self-delivery products, shipments from overseas warehouses in the country of sale have faster timeliness and are more likely to be favored by consumers.
4 Overseas warehouse value-added services to reduce product loss
Overseas warehouses can provide sellers with services such as labeling, labeling, repacking, etc. For shipments with damaged outer boxes, or returned products without quality problems, overseas warehouses can also help to replace the packaging or labels, and the products can be sold on the shelves. Reduce seller losses.
5 Unrestricted by platform, multi-channel distribution is more flexible
Overseas warehouse delivery is not restricted by the platform, and the "drop shipping" function is suitable for order delivery on various platforms, which is more convenient and flexible for multi-channel orders. Therefore, the layout of overseas warehouses is also a good choice for sellers who sell on multiple platforms.
