SERVICES

Distribution

Over 7 years of trading via unineed.com, we have built relationships with a number of international delivery partners and local warehousing and logistics suppliers. Our comprehensive logistics options allow you to choose the routes to market best suited to the customer and to your business including direct parcel import and local inventory via bonded warehouses.

When directly shipping from ‘home’ warehouses, brands and retailers face lower upfront costs and can offer a wider variety of SKUs while also building trust with the customer when purchasing directly from the source.

Holding stock locally in tax-free zones allows for faster delivery and also permits a range of heavy or bulky items to be sold. For larger vendors with predictable demand patterns, it can reduce overall logistics costs to below that of direct shipping on a per parcel basis.

International Shipping

Favourable shipping prices are extremely important to maintain an economically viable direct shipping route to cross-border ecommerce sales.

Without volume discounts, air freight to China is prohibitively expensive for most items.

Using our international shipping arrangements gives you access to competitive prices from the first day of trading, and allows you to offer the incentive of free shipping according to your chosen fulfilment policies which removes a significant barrier to sales from the customer point of view.

Inventory & Dispatch

When direct shipping, warehousing, packing and dispatch are usually handled from your existing warehouse.

We also work with select service providers to create the best logistics solutions for our clients as required.

Our platform will fully interface with your existing inventory management systems to ensure correct stock display across all sales outlets.

Customs Compliance

Correct shipping information is important to ensure parcels are not held by Chinese customs.

Drawing relevant information directly from our order database, our global distribution partners ensure customs labels are filled correctly with accurate item descriptions and values.

When moving inventory into local warehouses our service partners ensure compliance with all relevant import regulations.

Tax Free Zones

Special economic zones are designated areas within mainland China where goods can be held without attracting import duties.

We can arrange for your stock to be held within a special economic zone which will enable faster and more economic shipping to the customer.

Bulky and heavy items in particular benefit from local stock arrangements, without shipping costs damaging margins.

We will advise you on inventory management and other considerations when moving stock into the special economic zones.
