International Express Service


International Express Service

International express delivery is a kind of air freight that provides door-to-door service, including door-to-door pick-up, customs declaration and customs clearance services, and can also pay customs duties. It is suitable for international transportation of small parcels, documents or valuable goods.

In recent years, the development of international express delivery in China has been quite rapid, and it has doubled at a rapid rate every year. As a result, international express companies have no time to set up outlets in various cities in China and increase service windows. It is far from meeting the needs of export foreign trade enterprises. The Chinese market has also become an important area that international express companies cannot ignore.

With the development of e-commerce, the market of international express delivery is also monopolized by the traditional four major express delivery companies, and the direction of domestic domestic express delivery in China gradually entering the international market. Export foreign trade enterprises also have more choices.

Why use our international express service?

Why use our international express channel instead of directly contacting the international express company to place an order? Many foreign trade export enterprises will have such problems. International express companies are easy to contact, and you can also register an account to ship directly. Why do you have to use an international freight forwarder to send international express? Isn't the price of one more channel higher? Less efficient?

Here are some pros and cons of using our channels versus working directly with international couriers for you:

1. Cost, our international express freight will be much lower than the freight you directly cooperate with international express.

2. Documents, we will assist or do the documents required for international express customs clearance. International courier companies will not provide such services to you, you need a professional document person to prepare these materials.

3. Additional services, we will provide repackaging; resend goods from different places together, or split goods; take photos of goods; check quantity; check quality; label; remove unnecessary information; storage; international express companies do not have such services Serve.

4. Settlement, international express company, you need to pay deposit or cash in advance to arrange delivery for you. Our approach is more flexible and diverse.

5. Channels: Different international express companies have different services and advantages around the world, and the services provided by their branches in different cities in China are also different. For example, there is a big difference between Hong Kong FedEx and Shenzhen FedEx. If you choose to cooperate with an international express company, generally you can only cooperate with your local international express branch, and you are unlikely to cooperate with multiple international express companies, you can only choose one. But we are different, we can provide more than a dozen channels of multiple international express companies for you to choose from. In this way, when you have different needs from different customers, you can provide customers with high-quality services and freight.

6. Timeliness, using our account will take 1-2 days longer to deliver the goods to the international express company, which means that using our channel will be 1-2 days slower than placing an order directly with the international express company.
