Damco launches China B2C logistics programme for e-commerce
Jan 28, 2016: Damco launches B2C logistics programme for e-commerce players in China. Damco arranges the delivery to end-consumers in 1,600+ Chinese cities and promises a fast set-up and flexible, scalable implementation of customers’ e-commerce solutions. The China B2C logistics programme covers the entire process from inbound goods management and consumer order receipt to final delivery. First, Damco manages the receiving of both domestic and imported goods into one of their locations across China. This can include quality control, managing customs clearance, and temporary bonded storage, if required. Damon Gu, head of Supply Chain Management for Asia, Damco, explains, “The large and rapidly growing Chinese market for online shopping is a magnet for both importers and domestic producers. Online shopping events such as China Singles Day are already creating world-beating levels of activity for e-retailers locally in China, as well as globally”. “Discerning Chinese consumers in this highly competitive marketplace expect the highest standards of fulfilment. This new programme helps companies to guarantee that level of service. Our many years of experience in China and our vast spread of offices across the country helped us to develop a state of the art, complete and robust solution to merchants’ fulfilment challenges,” continues Damon.
