Seller’s New Opportunity Shopee Increases Investment in Brazilian Market

Shopee invests more in Brazilian market

Still because of this

According to foreign media reports, as of now, the Indonesian Ministry of Trade has deleted 64,497 links for online sales of second-hand clothing, 81 social commerce advertisements, and 5 online retail websites.

Specifically, 28,462 links were deleted from Shopee, 300 from Lazada, 3,897 from TikTok Shop, 28,000 from Tokopedia, and 6,468 from Bukalapak, and 370 from Blibli. In addition, there were 31 links from Facebook and 23 links from Instagram.

The deleted online retail websites include Sophiest Thrift, Trans Fashion Batam, Ball Media ID, Nice Thrift, Bal Segel Import, and Kyra Ball Import.

Selling imported used clothes through online means is considered a violation of the country’s Article 80 prohibiting advertising regulations.

PKTN Secretary-General Moga Simatupang emphasized that e-commerce companies must not sell or promote imported used clothing and must ensure that their product advertisements do not violate relevant advertising and regulations prohibiting the sale of imported used clothing.

The Ministry of Trade will continue to supervise illegal online sales of imported second-hand clothing in accordance with the instructions of President Joko Widodo to protect the domestic textile industry and small and medium-sized enterprises from its competitive threats.

02 Shopee continues to increase investment in the Brazilian market

According to foreign media reports, in order to improve user delivery experience and improve logistics and distribution services in Brazil, Shopee has opened 2 new distribution centers in Brazil, increasing the total number of distribution centers in Brazil to 8.

It is reported that the two new distribution centers are respectively located in the cities of Recife and Salvador, with areas of 10,000 square meters and 6,000 square meters, respectively.

After the opening of the new distribution centers, Shopee can shorten the average delivery time for customers in the entire Northeast region. Previously, Shopee’s distribution centers were located in the south and southeast, respectively in the states of Paraná, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Minas Gerais.

In addition, the new distribution centers are leased by Shopee instead of being purchased. They use a cross-docking management mode, which optimizes delivery time and reduces product storage costs, allowing consumers to have cheaper delivery options.

According to Shopee’s statement, after the addition of the new distribution centers, its service capacity will increase to about 1.5 million orders per day, and its city coverage area will increase by about 40% compared to the second half of last year.

Since mid-2021, Shopee has made a lot of investment in Brazil, striving to provide consumers with the most diversified products and services.

“New Three Products” export performance is outstanding

Among them, exports were 1.68 trillion yuan, an increase of 5.4%; imports were 841.5 billion yuan, a decrease of 10.9%.

The data shows that from January to April, Guangdong’s general trade import and export was 1.47 trillion yuan, an increase of 4.9%. Comprehensive recovery of cross-border logistics has promoted the development of bonded business, with imported and exported goods with bonded logistics totaling 428.54 billion yuan, an increase of 11.1%. The import and export of private enterprises was 1.53 trillion yuan, an increase of 6.5%, accounting for 60.5% of the total import and export value. The import and export of foreign-invested enterprises was 854.45 billion yuan, accounting for 33.8%; the import and export of state-owned enterprises was 139.09 billion yuan, accounting for 5.5%.

During the same period, Guangdong’s exports to its major trading partners, ASEAN and the EU, increased by 7.8% and 0.3% respectively; exports to countries and regions along the “Belt and Road” grew by 9.8%; and exports to other members of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) grew by 0.7%.

From January to April, exports of the “new three types” of electric passenger cars, lithium batteries, and solar cells increased by 9.5 times, 35.4%, and 102.4%, respectively.

Furthermore, the overall economic performance of Guangdong has continued to improve, with strong demand for commodities such as iron ore, coal, and crude oil, which increased by 22.7%, 27.6%, and 13.4% respectively. The recovery of retail consumption has driven imports of pearls, gemstones, semi-precious stones, and jewelry, which increased by 28% and 6.7 times, respectively, and imports of meat, aquatic products, and dairy products, which increased by 25.3%, 22.1%, and 5.1%, respectively.

The Guangdong Branch of the General Administration of Customs analyzed that due to the weakening overseas demand and high base effect, Guangdong’s foreign trade imports and exports decreased slightly in the first four months. However, overall, with the rapid economic recovery of Guangdong, the steady foreign trade policy, the acceleration of major project construction, and the continuous enhancement of corporate confidence and vitality, Guangdong’s foreign trade is expected to continue the overall positive momentum, laying a good foundation for achieving the annual growth target.
