How to control cross-border e-commerce inventory? Two cost optimization suggestions
The cost of cross-border e-commerce inventory has always been a matter of high customer concern. Many sellers are classified into best-selling, slow-selling, and ordinary based on sales. When your product attributes are unclear, it will easily lead to low capital utilization, which is originally worthwhile Products with a large amount of investment and high high-frequency returns have not been paid attention to, but products with a low return on capital and profit have been paid attention to! As a result, it is prone to overstocking or understocking, either overstocking or facing out of stock, and inventory is wasted. Therefore, in terms of cost control, you must have a deep understanding of cross-border trade knowledge to use your money on the edge. Today, I will share with you the key points of cross-border inventory cost optimization control. 一、Let the funds be used on the blade When funds are spent on the cutting edge, inventory turnover speeds up, and inventory costs can be controlled! To reduce inventory costs, scientific and reasonable prediction, monitoring, and optimization must be used to control the financial benefits of the entire inventory. 1、Product classification Cross-border sellers must have a focus on product investment and can classify products. For example, category A is a product with low sales frequency but high profit return; category B is a product with high sales frequency but low profit return...according to product performance , Categorized into different levels, make product investment or abandon more directional! 2、Change replenishment thinking Cross-border seller replenishment can't just look at sales, but also depends on the proportion of profit return and the return period. For example, the unit price of some products is high, although the sales volume is not large, but the profit turnover is fast and high; and although the sales volume of some products is good, the return of profits is slow and low! Therefore, sellers can increase their capital investment in the first category of products, and appropriately invest in the second category, which can speed up capital turnover while ensuring sales! 3、Optimize monitoring data Cross-border sellers must have a clear grasp of product inventory, sales volume, overall capital distribution, and proportion of returns. For example, if a product invests 1 million, how many days will it take to recoup the cost and how much profit can be made! These data will provide decision-making basis for stocking days, stocking costs, capital return, etc., and reduce the risk of slow sales or shortages in advance! 2. Capital efficiency inventory management function Yicang ERP's capital efficiency inventory management function helps customers monitor product input through data indicators to screen product levels, and focuses on products with high profitability and fast capital return, helping cross-border sales to make capital use on the edge. 1、Product benefit level package-make the product more focused Cross-border sellers can set rules in each level. For example, if a certain category reaches a daily saleable inventory investment return greater than or equal to 50% (that is, a profit margin greater than or equal to 50%), the daily available inventory returns The number of days is 0-15 days (that is, 0-15 days to earn back the cost), that means it is at the strongest king level, and it is worth amplifying the capital investment! 2. Capital efficiency inventory details-make data monitoring more detailed Compare the expected level of the product with the corresponding actual level comprehensively obtained from the inventory, sales, gross profit, and cost data in different warehouses to obtain the financial benefit effect of the inventory, so as to grasp the actual return result of the product, and carry out according to the actual level. Stock up to avoid over-stocking and slow sales. 3、Capital efficiency inventory panel-making optimization decisions more intuitive This section is more convenient for the boss or management to see. From this page, you can intuitively see which products are at which stage, grasp the overall fund distribution of current product inventory and the proportion of returns, and no longer have to look for which products one by one. It is worth the investment, which products need to be eliminated, grasp the product situation at a glance, and achieve greater utilization of funds!

4 kinds of risks in overseas warehouse return and exchange, the editor will show you
For all cross-border e-commerce sellers, in addition to their own product logistics, the most important thing is after-sales. Only by solving after-sales problems can we provide customers with a good shopping experience, and then bring a good reputation for the brand.

Next, the editor will analyze the risks faced by overseas warehouses in the process of return and exchange for everyone.
Six differences between international logistics and domestic logistics, Xiaobian interpretation
Domestic logistics is a logistics activity within one's own national territory that serves the national interest and is an important aspect of the national economy. World logistics is an extension of domestic logistics and has some characteristics of domestic logistics, but it has many differences from domestic logistics, mainly in the following aspects: 1. The logistics environment is very different World logistics is geared to countries and regions around the world, and is in line with the world; while domestic logistics is only a domestic logistics activity. The environment of world logistics has complex, extensive, and worldwide environmental characteristics, and the standard world logistics of domestic logistics also has it. Domestic logistics operations may be completed with only one document and one invoice, but world logistics cannot. Various documents such as customs declarations, origin documents, product inspections, etc. are all required. The transportation of domestic liquids, powders and other products is not difficult, but if such products are to be shipped abroad, it will be more difficult. If a lot of documents are required, the customs will also focus on checking. 2. Complexity The operation of the world logistics requires the use of multiple languages. Each country that the product passes through in the process of delivery requires logistics documents in multiple languages; the product itself, product manuals, etc. will also be multilingual; although they are all English is used as the common business language, but some countries must require documents and customs declarations in the local language, which makes the world's logistics operations more difficult. Domestic logistics warehouses are basically shared with the picking area and storage and retrieval, and they are generally flat warehouses. World logistics needs designated storage areas to improve storage utilization; dedicated picking areas improve picking power. Domestic logistics is basically free shipping. If the goods are lost, the seller will resend a new product to you, and the delivery time is short. However, the world logistics is shipped from abroad to abroad, the delivery time will be longer than that in China, and the shipping fee is not free. Domestic recipients need not worry about tax issues, while recipients in the world need to worry about whether there will be tariff issues. Perhaps only a logistics label needs to be affixed to domestic products, but only one logistics label code is not enough for products in the world. There are other requirements. For example, products exported to the United States need to be labeled "MADEINCHINA". 3.Different shipping methods Domestic logistics basically uses trucks to deliver domestic goods. Trucks are the primary means of transportation, and only trucks are needed to complete the work. The world's logistics requires air and automobile transportation, which basically have to go through two transportations, such as air transportation from my country to the United States, and the United States is using trucks for delivery. Domestic transportation is relatively safer. Most of the world transportation is shipped abroad by air. If an accident happens on the way, the economic loss will be very, very large. 4. Information communication methods If you want to check where the product is shipped in China, you can directly call the official to check, or check which site the goods have arrived at on its official website; and if the goods are shipped abroad, you may need to wait 2 days to see the arrival of the goods Where, the information queried on the official website can only see which country and port it arrives at, and the specific location is not visible.

What are the advantages of a simple inventory of overseas warehouses for cross-border logistics?
Due to the continuous development of cross-border e-commerce in recent years, if the original business model is still used, overseas warehouses will face rising warehouse operating costs and labor costs. At the same time, warehousing automation, FBA competition and Amazon's The development of the country has a greater impact. Therefore, we need to develop multi-functional overseas warehouses: overseas warehouses with a single function can easily be replaced, coupled with the continuous increase in operating costs and the continuous dilution of profit margins, which directly affect the development of the company. It needs to evolve from the original idea of drop shipping to a multifunctional logistics transfer center. And Qiancheng provides one-stop overseas warehousing services, including FBA return and exchange, warehouse transfer, reprinting or labeling, FBA product testing, binning, tax payment, insurance, etc. What are the advantages of overseas warehouses for cross-border logistics: The significance of overseas warehouses for cross-border logistics is reflected in both cross-border sellers and overseas buyers.

For overseas buyers, products from all over the world are gathered in the local warehouse. After placing an order, they can quickly receive the purchased items and make after-sales service possible. This is a great shopping experience for buyers. promote. In terms of timeliness and after-sales, cross-border e-commerce has gradually brought cross-border transactions closer to the offline shopping experience through overseas warehouses.
Something happened to the Amazon warehouse!
Amazon sellers are miserable. First, it was exhausted by inventory restrictions, address verification, blockbuster sales, and rigorous evaluations. Sudden logistics troubles made even less affluent families worse. According to the seller's feedback, recently, warehouses in the United States have suffered serious warehouse explosions, and the product launch speed is extremely slow! Not only that, even Europe is also facing a large-scale explosion of warehouses, and China Airlines has cancelled the second-haul capacity of the U.S. line due to the epidemic of crew clusters, and will suspend flights on a large scale. At present, problems such as insufficient shipping capacity of airlines and shortage of containers are all occurring. Warehouses in many locations have exploded, and congestion in European and American ports has increased. Xiaozhi has seen freight forwarders in the circle of friends. Recently, FTW1 in the United States has been severely exploded. The delivery team has been lined up on the expressway. The waiting time for unloading has also been lengthened. Some appointments have been made. Was pushed to a week later. Sellers who recently issued FTW1 warehouses should take measures in advance! The situation at the Canadian site is particularly severe. A number of warehouses affected by the epidemic have been closed and quarantined, and the products on the shelves are nowhere in sight. In addition, Amazon's French warehouses have also burst, making delivery more difficult and increasing costs. There are freight forwarders to increase the price of 60452 and 80337 postal codes, ranging from 2 yuan/KG to 4 yuan/KG. Some sellers said that they had just received a notice from a freight forwarder. Due to the impact of Amazon's warehousing, the British DPD warehouse was severely blown up. Tens of thousands of Amazon parcels were hoarded in the warehouse and could not be delivered, and the rate of product shelves was slow. At present, DPD has reduced the collection of goods. Now the British DPD vehicles are seriously insufficient. Goods sent to the UK may be delayed in customs clearance, and the collection and delivery will also be affected to a certain extent. Some sellers said that their goods have been dispatched by the UK for more than 20 days and have not been put on the shelves. It seems that the third wave of menacing epidemics in Europe, ship jams, Easter and strikes and other multiple blows have further hindered European logistics.
A detailed introduction to the operation process of U.S. overseas warehouse forwarding
Overseas warehouses have now become the standard equipment for sellers on major cross-border platforms, which can not only improve buyers' buying experience, but also better manage inventory. For customers who choose overseas warehouses after the recent FBA warehouse explosion, or newcomers For novices, they are not very familiar with the operation process of overseas warehouses in the United States. We will introduce to you. In terms of overseas warehousing and distribution, we are still very experienced. Not much to say, the following is the overseas warehouses of the United States. Send detailed operation process.
What are the differences between various overseas warehouses
We all know that cross-border e-commerce requires storage warehouses. For example, we are more familiar with Amazon; for overseas warehouses, it is actually just a more uniform term for us, but whether it is self-built overseas warehouses, leased overseas warehouses, or Amazon FBA warehouses, in fact, these three belong to the overseas warehouse series. First of all, let's understand the similarities and differences between self-built warehouses, leased warehouses, and Amazon. First, let’s see what are the similarities between these three. Sellers are required to ship in batches in advance, and the delivery method generally chooses air and express, which can effectively avoid logistics peaks. Both can shorten the delivery time, improve customer satisfaction, and help store sales growth. This is the common point of the three summarized by Xiaoyou. Then let's take a look at the differences between these three. The size of the product is different FBA warehouses have certain restrictions on the size, weight, and category of selected products, so the selection of products prefers products with small size, high profit and good quality; the range of rented overseas warehouses is wider than that of FBA warehouses, such as some sizes. Large and heavy products are also suitable; however, self-built overseas warehouses do not have any scope requirements and can be determined according to their own needs. This is the advantage of Ucang. Different requirements in the income warehouse As we all know about FBA, the requirements for the income warehouse are very strict. Each product requires a product label specified by Amazon. The outer box must not only have the corresponding label, but also the corresponding packing information. In addition, there are corresponding requirements for the size and weight of the outer box and the pallet, otherwise it cannot be stored normally. ! The warehousing requirements for rented overseas warehouses will not be as high as FBA warehouses, as long as the product labels are affixed to allow them to scan the code and put into the warehouse, some overseas warehouses will also provide services of sorting and assembling products before they are put on the shelves; excellent Warehouse overseas warehouses can flexibly adjust and manage the products that arrive in the warehouse, and provide more personalized services! Difference in service FBA warehouses will not provide sellers with first-hand customs clearance services; some third-party overseas warehouse service providers will provide sellers with first-hand customs clearance services, and even include one-stop service including tax payment and delivery to the warehouse; Ucang overseas warehouses You can directly use your own overseas warehouse company as an importer for customs clearance. The distribution of warehouses will also be different FBA warehouses are divided into warehouses by default, and the sellers’ products are often distributed to different warehouses for mixed storage. Manually adjusted to a centralized warehouse will also be distributed to different warehouses for management according to different types or sizes of products; rented or self-built overseas Warehouses generally put the goods in the same warehouse for centralized management. Applicable permissions are different FBA warehouses can only receive products from sellers on the Amazon platform, and other platforms can only ship products through the multi-channel delivery function in the Amazon account; while renting or self-built overseas warehouses do not have this requirement, as long as they can receive goods, no matter in It can be used wherever it is sold. Also, what Xiaoyou wants to say is that overseas warehouses also have a transit function. Many sellers use overseas warehouses and FBA warehouses at the same time. During peak seasons, they can directly transfer goods from overseas warehouses to FBA warehouses, saving time for domestic shipments. About the difference in cost The cost of choosing an overseas warehouse is not low. In contrast, if the volume is large, the cost of using FBA warehouses will be higher than renting overseas warehouses; generally, when the average daily order volume is more than 1,000 orders, self-built overseas warehouses begin to have advantages in terms of cost. There is another issue about returns and exchanges Amazon supports unconditional return and exchange of products by customers. FBA warehouse will not conduct any identification of returned products, nor will it charge any fees from buyers. Even if the returned product has no quality problems, Amazon will not sell the product to a second buyer again. This kind of return method is actually more partial to customers, which will lead to a higher return rate. If the product is returned, whether it is destroyed or returned to the seller, Amazon will charge another fee. For overseas warehouses, if the re
What is the model of import and export cross-border e-commerce?
Although cross-border e-commerce has a certain development history, in terms of traditional foreign trade, what are the cross-border e-commerce models? In response to this problem, Xiaoyou has to talk about the reason: cross-border business is divided into imports Similar to export, the cross-border e-commerce model can also be divided into: import cross-border e-commerce and export cross-border e-commerce. For imported cross-border e-commerce, it is usually that domestic consumers visit the shopping websites of overseas sellers to choose products and then the overseas sellers directly send international express delivery to the consumers. Export cross-border e-commerce is just the opposite. Domestic sellers deliver goods directly to overseas buyers through international express. The cross-border e-commerce model for imports is often divided into the following models: 1. M2C model: that is, platform investment promotion, represented by Tmall International. Under this model, merchants need to obtain qualifications and authorizations for overseas retail, goods are directly mailed from overseas, and local return and exchange services can be provided, but usually the price is relatively high. 2, B2C model: This model is bonded self-operated + direct sourcing, representing companies such as JD.com, Jumei, and Miya. In this mode, the platform generally directly participates in the supply organization and logistics warehousing buying and selling process to improve the sales flow. However, currently in this mode, the products are usually explosive and the categories are limited. 3. C2C mode: The overseas buyer system is adopted, and representative companies include Taobao Global Shopping, Ocean Terminal, Haimi, and Street Mi. Under this model, the breadth of the supply chain and product selection is constructed, but at the same time, there is also a traditional profit-making model that relies on advertising and rebates, resulting in poor control over the service experience. 4. B2B2C mode: Bonded mail-out mode. The characteristic of this model is that there is no inventory pressure, but in fact this model is based on general trade in the name of cross-border e-commerce, and it will not be the development direction of cross-border e-commerce in the long run. 5. Overseas e-commerce direct mail: On behalf of the company Amazon. The model is characterized by a global high-quality supply chain logistics system and abundant SKUs. 6. Rebate shopping guide/generation operation model: In fact, there are two types in this model: one is technical, and the other is agency operation. Generally, there are advantages in the early stage of cross-border e-commerce, easy to start, low cost, rich SKU, but lack of competitiveness, and real-time price updates, etc., require strong technical support. Therefore, early domestic companies that did this model are transforming. 7. Content sharing/community information: This model is the promotion base for overseas brands, because it mainly guides consumption through content and achieves natural transformation. At present, more than 200,000 domestic enterprises have carried out cross-border business through e-commerce, and more than 5,000 large and small cross-border e-commerce platforms, including more than 600 imported e-commerce platforms. Its operating model is mainly divided into B2C, C2C, M2C, special sales and e-commerce social shopping guide. B2C model of imported e-commerce is represented by JD global shopping, global Shunhe, and various traditional industries transformed into cross-border e-commerce companies. This model is an important one of the above imported e-commerce models. Most products need to be prepared by the platform itself. The four links of capital, team, supply and logistics are indispensable. They are divided into two types: integrated type and vertical type. Its advantage lies in its low purchase price, and it is easy to attract consumers at a low price, which is in line with the essence of imported e-commerce "good price and good quality". At the same time, the quality of the goods is easy to control, the unification of logistics brings the advantage of timeliness, and the goods can be delivered quickly. Under the premise of financial security, vertical B2C imported e-commerce is a suitable model for traditional industry enterprises to transform imported e-commerce.
