At present, with the development of cross-border e-commerce, e-commerce has begun to integrate resources, and cross-border e-commerce logistics has emerged. It can be said that the development of cross-border e-commerce firstly promotes the emergence and development of cross-border e-commerce logistics, and the two depend on each other.

To put it simply, cross-border logistics refers to the cross-border sales of goods by e-commerce based on the Internet and relying on various modes of transportation.

So what are the characteristics of cross-border logistics? According to the current situation of cross-border logistics, I summarize the following points.

√ Complex operation

The first is language. Goods have to pass safely from one country to another through multiple countries, and in order to pass through customs, the goods themselves have to be labelled in multiple languages.

Secondly, cross-border logistics takes a long time and has tax problems.

Characteristics of cross-border logistics

√ High competitive pressure

Although cross-border logistics has a large market, it is affected by the overall environment, its own strength, technical experience and other factors, and its competition mainly reflects the competition among enterprises in a single market.

√ Single function

Cross-border logistics has the characteristics of single function and narrow service orientation.

Many cross-border e-commerce companies or enterprises can obtain a single mode of transportation, service function selection is small, can not meet customer needs, lack of competition.


Accordingly, after analyzing its characteristics, we can better understand the current environment of cross-border logistics and analyze its freight fluctuation factors. It is mainly affected by the environment.

√ Influence of national policies. Cross-border logistics involves many countries with different national policies. Cooperation or conflicts between countries will affect cross-border logistics freight charges.

√ The most important factor affecting price is the relationship between supply and demand. Faced with the increasing logistics demand of cross-border e-commerce, the current development of cross-border logistics cannot match it. Technical constraints have pushed up the shipping threshold.

√ A certain period of time, such as the peak of movement of goods, during which the demand for cross-border logistics increases and the corresponding logistics fees rise.

So far, cross-border logistics needs to be ready at any time, and its freight is affected by multiple factors. How can I reduce the freight? Tell me what you think.
