The years-long upward trend of eCommerce sales and the resulting impact on parcel shipping has been accentuated by the stay-at-home orders brought on by COVID-19. More people are turning to online shopping for a larger portion of their daily and special purchases.
Global shopping is increasingly a big part of that volume as consumer confidence in ordering something from another country has increased. This is on top of the already substantial international flow of goods from the traditional supply chain.
International Shopping and shipping are here to stay. But it is fraught with challenges.
Managing a worldwide local delivery network in destination countries is difficult when you don’t know the customs, speak the language, etc.
Relying on one-off parcel shipments can drive up costs.
Cross-border Consolidation with FedEx’s international services is a shipping tactic that can reduce costs without sacrificing reliability and peace of mind.
To successfully ship globally now and as we emerge from COVID-19, eCommerce shippers, 3PLs, and manufacturers must focus on overcoming the main challenges they face, including:
- Maintaining Customs Compliance
• Meeting Border Security Requirements
• Addressing the De Minimis Dilemma
• True Landed Costs Calculations
• Another challenge is normalizing all the siloed data
• Tracking international packages
