Why We Ship From Asia?
The most commonly used purchase process for an online webshop is shown below. The online store manages its warehouse on its own, ordering products from manufacturers or suppliers that it works with. The next step is the distribution of the products to the local warehouse, followed by distribution to the client from the local warehouse. The image below illustrates this process. We will sum up the pros and cons of the old school way.
Faster local delivery
More fixed costs
More transshipment, more damages, more fuel usage
High & double import duties
High international (double) shipping costs
Stocking and warehouse costs
Shipping directly from our supplier is a logistical model of online sales whereby the shipping process is handed over to our manufacturer or supplier, I.E., the logistics operator. The role of the online store in this logistical model is limited to collecting purchase orders and forwarding them to the supplier, who ships the wares directly to the customer. This is illustrated in the image below. For this process, we also sum up the pros and cons.
Faster & free worldwide shipping
Less transshipment, less damage, better for the environment
Lower costs = lower consumer price
99% of the times every product in stock
Slower local delivery
Shipping times vary due to customs and local post offices
