Why do clothing importers choose LDP shipping term ?
Many people don’t understand why the vast majority of clothing manufacturers choose LDP shipping term. Isn’t it risky?
The common understanding of LDP quotation is that the logistics cost must be calculated, including the cost of customs clearance and delivery in the United States, including the customs duty at the destination port.
Are there any advantages of clothing LDP shipping term?
1. Cost controllable
The clothing and textile industry has a lot of procurement contacts, and the main reason for choosing LDP shipping term is that the cost is controllable. Because of the low gross profit, exporting to the United States pays more attention to the price of logistics and freight, saving logistics costs to increase the gross profit of clothing and textiles themselves.
2. Flexible and punctual
The clothing and textile industry is characterized by many changes and fast delivery, so the required supporting logistics services must be flexible and punctual. Factories often receive notice from abroad to change the tag or other modifications.
The shipping schedule of more than one week can allow customers to have more Many options. At the same time, the coordination and flexibility in operation will leave more time for the factory to catch up with the goods, so as to ensure the normal shipment of the goods and catch up with the delivery date.
3. Risk transfer
In terms of risk control, the LDP shipping term clause means that the consignor is responsible for delivering the goods to the warehouse designated by the customer before the specified deadline.
For shippers, we used to only need to focus on the delivery time of the factory and the quality of the goods, but now we also need to worry about logistics.
In the past, they followed the rhythm of the designated freight forwarder.
The factory often complained that the designated freight forwarder required an early cut-off date, and the designated freight forwarder charged high fees. Now they suddenly left the freight forwarder to choose by themselves.
The reason is the lack of understanding of the entire logistics distribution process. To make LDP shipping term requires LDP freight forwarders to have rich operating experience and the ability to control the entire link.
For example, what delivery date matches the shipping date, what is the punctuality rate of the selected shipping company, the unloading time at the destination port wharf, the customs clearance ability of the customs clearance bank (the customs inspection rate of clothing products is relatively high), and the deployment ability of trucks. Need LDP freight forwarder to solve.
