最近很多卖家反馈，物流商反馈，柜子在码头提的很慢，提的慢的原因，90%的原因是海外仓爆仓，另外10%确实是码头的问题，比如APL的码头，很多时候需要等到LAST FREE DAY才能提，有时候夸张的时候，过了LFD(最后免堆存费日期)才提出来。
[Industry information] Ship owners dump containers, overstocked goods, overseas warehouse explosion, the United States end of the logistics pressure nearly paralyzed
As the epidemic continues to spread in the United States, UPS and FedEx have already reduced the volume of deliveries, and some regions have even suspended the delivery.
In addition, due to the explosion of overseas stocks, the sellers prepare a large amount of goods, and the delay of the final delivery, the delivery time of the warehouse has been reduced, and the goods in the warehouse have piled up, thus causing a series of problems such as the delay of warehousing and putting on shelves.
FedEx's largest logistics hub in Los Angeles is expected to be shut down for a week because of a possible cluster infection, a seller has said.
At present, the logistics center has a backlog of 500 to 1000 containers.
If the operation is suspended, it will affect the delivery business of GIGA west Coast to some extent.
Since the end of home orders in Los Angeles, cross-border e-commerce sellers have seen a new peak in shipments, and for cross-border e-commerce logistics, there seems to be hope for a break.
Since Amazon initially restricted warehousing, a large number of goods began to be sent to the United States to be stored in overseas warehouses. At this time, nearly a month later, when the overseas warehouses were about to collapse, Amazon sent the good news that warehouses could be built.
At that time, we often saw the truck company working overtime overnight, and the express company also went down due to the instantaneous bulk cargo. The delivery scanning time was not very ideal, which has been continued until now.
In mid-July, Amazon finally announced the restriction again. This part is mainly treated according to the performance of inventory. Unlike the first time, it is not one size fits all.
Although there is no one-size-fits-all, the sadness of sellers and logistics has not stopped.
Right now, the biggest concern for sellers is entry.
Due to the serious backlog of goods, some of the goods have been waiting in line for one or two months to be placed.
Some sellers said that the logistics information of the goods sent to the United States on 8th of this month has been stopped, so we cannot confirm whether the delivery has been successful.
There are also red orders that have been signed by No.7, but have not been received up to now.
Of all the warehouses, FTW1 appears to be the most severe.
Many sellers ridicule "out of stock has not put in storage", a seller queuing for nearly two months after the goods are still not on the shelf bluntly: "FTW1 toxic!
The July 1 shipping is on the shelves, and the June 1 express is still out there."
And a live video of the warehouse from overseas warehouse in the industry shows that FTW1 has been surrounded by trucks.
The U.S. economy to restart, let everyone forget the United States or one of the epidemic is very serious, in July, the number of infections continued to rise, one-day break 80000, our concern for the United States, it is not just logistics delivery, more concern is that under such a high unemployment rate, the American people can remain relatively strong purchasing power?
Overseas dynamic inventory
1. Express delivery
Before UPS and FEDEX, Shanghai style, the whole ark directly to Courier company receiving site, by UPS or FEDEX after unloading, scanned, and finally to complete delivery, but now, UPS and FEDEX has refused to sent straight, even if occasionally someone sent straight, that the feeling of waiting for their discharge, like a forget to wear autumn waters, generally at least a week, they will finish unloading.
Most people felt that at last you make cabinet, UPS site of Los Angeles will suddenly disappear, then finally after investigation, has arrived in Houston, has arrived in Dallas, basically have the past half a month, and for the logistics, ark rent of $150 a day, multiplied by 10 days, opening a tank equals in the warehouse.
Now basically have to make an appointment to UPS or FEDEX, and most of the day guarantee a car has been good, but for overseas warehouse, a car is a drop in the ocean, so recently sellers to find the logistics channel, reached a peak, is the most direct display on July 16 and 18, cross-border electricity trade show, said the effect is good, a lot of logistics providers consulting a lot of people, is also this kind of situation, exacerbated by recent market turmoil in the logistics.
The current state of the express delivery is basically better, waiting in the warehouse for 3 days, bad, waiting for a week, after the express delivery, and then waiting for 3-4 days to scan the Internet, start the transfer.
It is widely spread on the Internet that some warehouses of Amazon refuse FEDEX's goods, which is actually not accurate. The correct interpretation should be that a large number of FEDEX cabinets are overstocked on Amazon's unloading platform, and Amazon lacks sufficient manpower to unload, resulting in overstocking of brackets and cabinets, which only requires FEDEX.
Because of the swing, when UPS doesn't deliver, you pick FEDEX, and then when FEDEX collapses, you arrange the card pie, in fact, except for the warehouses in California, and some of the larger truck line warehouses.
Other warehouse, delivery may be a better choice, such as MDW series, series of FTW, ABE, cli, are these trucks have direct, cargo relatively concentrated, but for those who are not concentrated, FBA truck line seldom open up some of the warehouse, many sellers if you don't understand the American way of truck delivery, may fall into another hole.
These are not regular members of the special line of trucks, if use LCL truck delivery can only choose the traditional old beauty company, if a common understanding, is China's gravels, they need to have the goods collected, has been up and down along the way, if your cargo is to ABE8, they will have the goods sent to the distribution center in New York, and then make an appointment to send time, amazon at regular time, this is no problem, amazon would give to go in 4 to 7 days.
Now, however, are basically after 3 weeks, so many sellers feedback recently, their cargo, such as have no access to a few weeks, a lot of reasons, it is also one of them, so most of the time, I would suggest we sellers friends, for the main storehouse of the transport, if can use express delivery, although be delayed a week, but behind than waiting for appointments, aging or is much better.
Generally speaking, THE FBA truck company in Los Angeles, which works 24 hours a day, is unable to meet the demand. Therefore, the capacity cannot be expanded significantly in the short term. Most importantly, there is a shortage of drivers, which further aggravates the imbalance of the capacity.
Feedback many sellers feedback recently, logistics providers, the cabinet of the dock is slow, the cause of the slow, 90% of the reason is that overseas warehouse blasting warehouse, the other 10% is indeed a problem of wharf, such as APL pier, a lot of the time need to wait until the LAST FREE DAY to mention, sometimes exaggerated, a LFD (the LAST date of FREE storage charge).
For overseas warehouses, most of them have not enough space and personnel to dismantle the cabinets, so they can only put the containers on the dock first and only bring them up on the day of the last no-heap period. After that, what if they come to the warehouse or have no space to dismantle them?
Generally, after the containers are lifted off the dock, the shipping company will give 3 days for free use of the containers, so the overseas warehouse can only put the containers on the brackets first, and continue to use the free use of the containers to wait for the warehouse to unpack the containers. The impact of this is mainly in the following aspects:
The delay of prescription is quite serious, which is usually within 7-10 days.
The shipping company's empty container resource shortage, because most shipping companies, from abroad back, are empty containers back, so recently many domestic logistics chamber of commerce found that when the trailer to pick up empty containers, often lack of cabinets or always produce the cost of carrying empty containers in different places.
4. Amazon warehouse problem
It's a love-hate problem for all sellers, and now sellers are generally reacting to slow reception and slow delivery.
For logistics companies, the most painful thing is that Amazon has frequently improved the warehouse time. Recently, several warehouses are more excessive, basically LGB8 and FTW1 are the main ones. LAX9 has some influence at present, a picture posted by an overseas truck dealer in the group shows that the warehouse time of LGB8 is directly postponed from July 24th to September 2nd!
Late delivery is not only a pain for sellers, but also a huge backlog of goods on the way, which takes up a lot of capital. In terms of logistics, overseas warehouses are also becoming more and more crowded.
So far, no overseas warehouse or logistics will give the customer a solution - up goods to overseas warehouse, now the truth is, Los Angeles, a third party overseas warehouse, basically have warehouse or are in the blasting warehouse on the way, in New York a little better, this means that amazon stop create goods in March, a large number of overseas warehouse free let guests up a month, three months to take positions in the amazon limit, can no longer use this alternative solution to solve.
In June, the CDC predicted a peak in the number of cases of Q3/Q4 in the United States, and the latest data for the United States confirm that prediction.
Logistics situation response and cause concern
At its current rate, from the point of cargo, by sea is the big head, now face the problem of the cabinet into the storehouse, basically all is in the middle of June, from domestic real pressure is starting in late June to early July in the cabinet, so we expect in the middle of August, the end of the logistics system will be under tremendous pressure, not rule out the possibility of more chaos.
When the end of the distribution has not been updated, domestic sellers and so on are impatient, many sellers will refresh the logistics information every day but can not be updated status.
It is inevitable to run out of goods in this way.
Forwarders in the industry suggested that in view of the current situation to stop shipping, if you want to ship, now can be shipped as early as possible.
If the shipment is stopped, it means that in the future, the possibility of red order replenishment or empty replenishment may increase greatly, and the cost will also increase even more.
The point is that delivery is slow, and it is likely to cost more and fall short of expectations.
The current outbreak in the United States is worsening, with more than 4 million confirmed cases.
There are still many unknown factors for this black swan. We do not know how long the battle line will be stretched and when the logistics will resume.
For the small and medium-sized sellers who are mainly in the US, I don't know how many people will be able to survive until the rain clears up.
