Since March this year, the epidemic has been on the rise and the recurrence degree has become more serious. Currently, it has involved many provinces across the country. Qingdao, Shanghai and Shenzhen, the three major port cities in the Yangtze River Delta, have also pressed the “suspension button”. Cross-border logistics is facing a number of problems, such as tight supply, insufficient capacity and high cost, difficult delivery of express logistics, sharp drop in sales of e-commerce and dismal business, and reduced capacity of truck drivers blocked on the road… Under the counterattack of the epidemic, the cross-border logistics and transportation industry across China has ushered in an “inverted cold”.
With repeated outbreaks of the epidemic, cross-border e-commerce is facing many crises
Set card driver shortage, seller shipment delay
Be engaged in the xiao Chen that collects card driver to work in Shanghai for a long time, current market lets him be quite tired. “Most of the vehicles in the fleet are now blocked, some drivers are isolated, some are stuck in the highway… The epidemic has led to traffic congestion, with each order taking longer on average than in the past, and a general increase in freight rates of one to two times.”
In addition to a large number of drivers who are unable to travel due to lockdown and abnormal travel codes, “where can NUCLEIC acid be made?” has also become the topic most frequently exchanged among card drivers. In order to ensure that the nucleic acid code does not expire, many drivers from the original once every two days to now once a day. “Under the COVID-19 lockdown, logistics vehicles are queuing at high speeds, accelerating the congestion. People have to queue up for two days to book a bus in advance, and they are also required to show their permits or quarantine passes in controlled areas.”
Out of stock, out of stock, difficult delivery, cross-border sellers have collapsed
Cross-border e-commerce sellers are out of stock, out of stock, difficult to deliver… Recently, a lot of sellers are complaining that this year is really difficult, seeing the platform produced orders, can only be anxious. “My shop sold dozens of orders of a certain product a few days ago. As a result, due to the impact of the epidemic, logistics delivery had to wait in line indefinitely. The goods could not be sent out, and buyers applied for refund and complained, resulting in a high customer turnover rate.”
Not only that, but for cross-border sellers, most of them don’t understand the international laws and regulations, the customs policy, most of the time, the seller have intention to not intentional of contraband goods, not declare data, imitation brand, the goods didn’t agree size is too large, packaging transportation regulations, etc., during the outbreak logistics not free, but also increased the difficulty of the logistics.
