The cross-border e-commerce industry has achieved rapid development. What is the key and core of international freight forwarding?
In recent years, the cross-border e-commerce industry has achieved rapid development, and the throughput of goods has also increased significantly. At present, many uncertain factors have affected the efficiency of cross-border e-commerce freight, and international freight companies need a large amount of timely information cooperation to deal with the uncertainty.
From the perspective of the characteristics of international freight, whether it is cross-border e-commerce freight, general trade freight, or processing trade freight, they are all components of international freight. However, in the international freight industry, due to the different standards of each role, repeated orders are repeated, the information between each link is not transparent, and there is a lack of trust.
On the whole, after the trade agreement is reached, the cross-border trade system, whether in the form of e-commerce or general, is actually no different from China. Even if there is a difference, there is only one, that is, an item has been added to foreign exchange management, which is an addition for settlement.
The rest of the job is to produce products and customers. That is to transform B2B into B2B2C or B2C, which is a way of B2C to find customers. In the next step, you will find that Chinese shipping is very different from international shipping. The two add not only one item, but N items, not just one item, whether it is personalization, standardization, or the connection of processes or services, and the number of different objects to be served, it does not matter.
The controlled factors and the degree of difficulty in delivery are not simply transportation. There is a big difference between international freight and domestic freight. Export enterprises, or overseas C-end, combined, domestic section, overseas section plus trunk line section. Specifically, practitioners include carriers, fleets, warehouse companies, customs brokers, special customs supervision areas, yard terminals, shipping companies, airlines, railways, etc.
When it comes to technology drivers, individuals are not in favor of investing from an asset perspective. In order to improve the efficiency of the entire industry from the perspective of technology, it is necessary to consider where the pain points are. Individuals divide the pain points into two dimensions: the first dimension, the “vertical plane” of upstream and downstream connections; the second dimension, is The “vertical plane” unique to each service link.
In this regard, individuals can build a “highway model” from these two dimensions. Vertically build the trunk line of the expressway, and embed the content and docking standards of vertical standardization, informatization, and intelligence into the trunk line, so as to achieve standardization, unification, and intelligent innovation.
After communicating with customers, I personally believe that there are three core issues in the international freight ecosystem: first, standardization of service processes and content in each link; second, technology to promote digitalization of content and document conversion; third, to establish credibility.
