Text|Cangsheng Overseas Warehouse

Introduction: Amazon sellers who have used FBA know that FBA has strict requirements for storage. Once the packaging does not meet the standards, it will not be allowed to be stored. Although the storage requirements of third-party overseas warehouses are not as strict as FBA, there are still certain standards. When sellers operate dropshipping through third-party overseas warehouses, they also need to follow the storage standards of the overseas warehouses. Otherwise, it will not only affect the timeliness of storage, but also increase the logistics cost of dropshipping.

In cross-border e-commerce industry, logistics cost is a significant expense. Some sellers have said that logistics cost accounts for more than 30% of all operating costs. The huge proportion makes it urgent for sellers to reduce logistics cost. Any operation that increases logistics cost needs to be optimized. This is true for dropshipping through overseas warehouses. The following are the storage standards that sellers need to follow.

1. Storage Standards for Dropshipping Goods

Before sending goods from China to overseas warehouses, sellers need to pack the goods according to the standards.

1. Adequate Physical Isolation Physical isolation is for the situation where there are multiple SKUs in the storage box. When multiple SKUs are stored in the same box, sellers need to package them independently or use hard cardboard, transparent film, etc. to isolate and distinguish different SKUs.

2. SKU labels are clear and recognizable Goods that are stored in the warehouse need to have clear and recognizable SKU labels that can be scanned by a scanner. During the transportation process, labels may become blurry due to wear and tear or printing issues. Sellers need to pay attention to this issue when attaching labels and take corresponding measures to avoid such risks.

3. Standard packaging with secure sealing Goods that are dropshipped, whether they are bagged or boxed, need to follow packaging standards and cannot have abnormal packaging, such as no packaging, snake skin bags, woven bags, or damaged packaging. In addition, the packaging sealing of the goods needs to be secure and cannot be loose, easily loosened, or unsealed.

4. Single product with overseas warehouse SKU label Single products need to have an overseas warehouse SKU label, which is obtained by the seller when creating shipping information in the overseas warehouse system. The seller downloads the label on the system and prints it out to attach to the product packaging. When the product arrives at the overseas warehouse, the staff scans the label, completes the identification, and arranges for shelving.

If sellers do not follow the overseas warehouse’s storage standards when storing goods, it will increase the workload of the overseas warehouse. In addition to delaying the storage and shelving of goods, the overseas warehouse will also charge a certain amount of operating fees and related material fees.

II. Fees for dropshipped goods entering the warehouse

When goods are stored in the warehouse, the overseas warehouse mainly charges unloading fees and storage handling fees. The unloading fees vary depending on the different charging standards for whole container shipping, sea and land transportation, air transportation, and bulk cargo. During this process, if the goods do not meet the storage standards of the overseas warehouse (including but not limited to the above-mentioned storage standards, subject to the standards of each overseas warehouse), corresponding fees will be generated. For example, at the Cangsheng Overseas Warehouse, if the weight of a single box exceeds 50 pounds, an additional $1/box overweight unloading fee will be charged. If multiple SKU physical isolations are not in place and additional manual sorting is required, a service fee of $0.08/item will be charged. In addition, sellers need to pay attention that these prices will also fluctuate with the market. For the latest prices, please contact the sales staff at Cangsheng Overseas Warehouse (contact information is located at the bottom of the article).

3. Suggestions for One-Stop-Shipping Packaging

Here are some suggestions for packaging:

1. Different products can be mixed in bag-type or carton packaging, but there should not be too many SKUs, and different products should be separated for easy differentiation.

2. If there is space between products inside the carton, fill it with filler to prevent damage from impact.

3. For medium-large products sent in individual boxes, both the product label and the outer box label must be affixed to the outer box, and the label information should not overlap.

4. In addition to necessary labels and barcodes, there should be no other text or barcodes that could be confused during scanning on the outer packaging.

5. The packaging bag or carton must be in good condition and indicate whether the product is fragile or requires specific storage conditions.

6. In case of rain, the outer box should be wrapped in plastic wrap or a transparent bag to prevent the label from wearing and the product from being damaged due to moisture.

These packaging suggestions are more suitable for small and medium-sized products. If the seller wants to send large products, it is recommended to use the original factory packaging for shipping. Please follow the specific warehousing requirements of the overseas warehouse for products shipped in original factory packaging.

Conclusion: If the seller does not adhere to the warehousing standards of the overseas warehouse, it will increase the warehousing cost of one-stop-shipping and squeeze profits. In the increasingly competitive market, sellers should save every penny that can be saved and apply this expenditure to other investments that can enhance competitiveness, continuously enhance the competitiveness of the enterprise.
