For Amazon FBA sellers, how many freight forwarding resources should at least cooperate with? Why do you need to find more companies, isn’t it a waste of resources? Then, my answer is: don’t waste it, you must find it!
It is recommended that you have at least three or more cooperative freight forwarders on hand. why? Choosing an Amazon FBA freight forwarding company mainly depends on three key points: timeliness, customs clearance, and price.
When we ship goods, sometimes we are in a hurry to replenish the goods, and sometimes we are preparing goods for the peak season, so the requirements for timeliness will be different. Different Amazon FBA freight forwarding companies have different logistics resources, which leads to different timeliness.
Regardless of whether our own needs are fast or slow, we must know the timeliness of different channels and different freight forwarding companies in advance, so that we can be prepared and use it calmly when we need it.
2. Customs clearance
Especially in European countries, the customs clearance capabilities of Amazon FBA freight forwarding company is particularly important. European countries are much stricter than the United States in terms of customs clearance, so sometimes some goods cannot be cleared. However, competent freight forwarders can clear the goods through their own resources.
However, some freight forwarders who are only responsible for receiving and delivering goods do not have this ability. Once it is seized by the customs, the freight forwarder can only ask the seller to find someone to handle it. Although there are many customs clearance companies outside, they also charge a lot of service fees. Therefore, we need freight forwarders with outstanding customs clearance capabilities.
Why do you want to find the price advantage? First of all, logistics cost has always been a very headache for sellers. If the freight forwarder can reach the buyer within the stipulated time, and the logistics price is lower than other companies, then the seller can consider cooperation.
