This Episode: •Tips for sea shipping products •Freight forwarding issues •The Flexport FF Solution Probably the most intimidating thing about sourcing products for private label sales from an overseas supplier is the issue of shipping. There are all kinds of issues that you have to be aware of including export licenses, taxes, when ownership of the products transfers to you (thus in indicating your liability), customs fees, and more. You can walk that path yourself or you can have someone help you. Scott definitely advises the later. Find out how it works on this great episode where Scott is chatting with Ryan Peterson, of Flexport. HOW RYAN STARTED THINKING ABOUT CREATING A FREIGHT FORWARDING COMPANY. It’s often the pain we experience ourselves that prompts us, entrepreneurs, to build something to solve that problem. That’s how it was for today’s guest, Ryan Peterson. Ryan had experienced some issues with his supplier and the sea shipping options that not only cost him a lot of money through fees and delays but also didn’t allow him to keep his products in stock as easily as he expected. He’d already worked in the overseas markets and figured he might be the guy to figure out some better systems to make things happen smoothly for others. Flexport is his solution. Find out more about Ryan and the Flexport story on this episode of The Amazing Seller. PRODUCT SHIPPING ISSUES CAN TRIP UP YOUR SALES PIPELINE IN A NUMBER OF WAYS. One of the many problems Ryan Peterson ran into that caused him to build the Flexport solution for purchasers of overseas products was regarding timing. What he discovered was that everything had to legally be done in a certain sequence. If it wasn’t, and his product was shipped before a certain requirement was met, the shipping company would charge him daily fees for having his products “stored” at their facility. It’s just one example of the kinds of headaches it can be to ship by sea. But there are answers and Ryan has built the solution, which you can hear about on this episode of The Amazing Seller. WHEN IT COMES TO DEALING WITH OVERSEAS SHIPPING, MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE TERMS. There are all kinds of acronyms and terms used in the sea shipping and freight forwarding that can get you confused. And if you choose the wrong options, thinking they are the right option (which is not entirely unheard of) you can wind up paying lots of money in the form of customs fees and taxes that you really didn’t have to pay. So how do you navigate a field of landmines like that? You need someone to guide you – and on this episode of the podcast, Scott has just the guy – Ryan Peterson of Flexport. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DEAL WITH YOUR FREIGHT ISSUES FOR PRIVATE LABEL PRODUCTS? If you’re sourcing your products from overseas – China in particular – you are going to have to decide how you are going to handle your shipping issues. You can do it yourself.

ENTER CHINA SHOW EPISODE 12 Find the complete show notes and transcript: https://www.enterchina.co/shipping101 Learn more about Flexport - https://www.flexport.com/benefits What's in this episode? How to assess your shipping needs? Knowing your options and knowing which option is best for you? (00:43) At the very beginning, during your first go with a product you kind of have to rely on your factory to give you a good assessment of what you are ACTUALLY shipping. (01:01) How does your order quantity translate into boxes, palets, and weight? (01:11) You want to clarify how many cartons are they going to be in? Are they going to be paletized for transport? (01:27) So you have your product made. It’s ready to leave the factory… where do you send it? (03:57) It depends on your shipment needs. (04:12) If you're a kickstarter type company you could have an express courier pick it up from the factory and deliver straight to customer. (04:42) This is usually fairly costly and a lot more complicated than it seems. (04:51) With freight forwarding you have the option for them to come to the factory and pick up your goods and then deliver to final customer. (04:57) Ship direct to consumer from HK/China or send to fulfillment center near your customer base? (05:07) A lot depends on unit economics and where your company is in terms of scale. (05:29) Go with the options that is cheaper for your company and satisfies your customers. (05:46) Shipping direct from your factory to your customer could be very advantageous. (05:58) Companies that have scale usually want to plan out their supply chain. (06:34) To shipping agent or not to shipping agent? (Do you use a shipping agent?) (07:05) When you can't handle shipping by yourself anymore you should reach out to a shipping agent to handle it. (07:35) If you have no more time to improve your product, market you product, etc. then it's time to have someone take care of it for you. (07:50) Your goal should be to build your product and sell it. Not to figure out shipping logistics. (08:02) How to monitor and manage ongoing shipping needs? Choosing a solution that’s not just one-off solution but sets you up for long term success. (08:34) Most companies start by using excel spreadsheets. (09:13) Flexport has created a web application that helps you monitor shipments in real time. (09:46) You can see where all your shipments air, ocean, and trucking are in the world (on the map). Then click to get more details. (09:49) Software is way better at managing larger sets of data.

How to go about clearing customs in the US? Will the supplier fill-out these forms and handle customs? Answer is they will give you that option but you're probably paying a 20-30% premium on logistics. It's very easy to find a freight-forwarding company or a shipping & logistics broker. Think about a huge cargo ship and what happens is it gets chopped up in smaller pieces and handed out to smaller companies who will book shipments on that ship and take a percentage of that cost. So somebody like that - a freight-forwarder - will usually specialize in a type of product or a region that you're shipping to. For example somebody will be an expert in textiles to the USA, or electronics to Europe. So they will understand what the typical problems and issues are with importing into that country and they will be very familiar with custom rates and duty etc. So you want to talk a bit about getting your goods in and what the regulations are. That's it for the quick tip of the day, write down your questions about freight-forwarders in the comments below. - See more at: http://www.runningwithchina.com/freight-forwarder-can-help-you-with-importing-into-your-country/ -------------------- ABOUT RUNNING WITH CHINA -------------------- We are Jamon, Matt, and Terry (JMT), three Americans that have been living in China for a collective 30 years.

Today we are going to talk about How To Ship Products From China and How To Avoid Unexpected Costs at Customs. We are going to take the example of an Amazon Seller. Say you find a profitable product on Alibaba and you have seen the sample, tested it and you are confident with the supplier, you’re going ship an order of 2000 pieces - small and light products, you want to ship it by air. So there are two things to consider when shipping from China. First, What's the cost of Shipping? Second, What is the duty rate that’s going to be applied and are there any customs clearance costs as well when the product arrives? So usually when you are shipping by air most of the stuff is taken care of by the Freight Forwarding Company as in your Express Company and they will charge you a Premium for that. But it's easy, simple and uncomplicated. So your duty rate is going be determined by the country you are going to ship in to, like US has a different duty rate for plastic phone cases compared to South Africa or Australia. Duty rates are all public information, and you can easily find out what the right duty rate is. Duty rate will be dependent on what you declare the value of your products. So if you have a phone case and you are buying it from china for 3 dollars, then you need to state that the product is worth 3 dollars, and you will be charged a duty rate on that. Some people might declare 1 dollar for their phone cases, you might be fine there but if you state that all these phone cases are only worth 5 cents, just because you don't want to the pay duty rate, that can trigger a RED FLAG with customs and they may assess you with a higher duty rate then you were expecting to pay. These are all the things, that need be taken into consideration and it’s very easy to find a freight forwarder or an express company that will take care of all the paperwork for you. Usually the Express Companies or Freight Forwarders will specialize in a region or types of products and they will know all the ins and outs. They charge a very small fee and they make everything very easy. My advice for people starting out: find a good Freight Forwarder or Small Express Company, set up a company account with them and rely on them to do most of the importing for you. - See more at: http://www.runningwithchina.com/how-to-ship-products-from-china-avoid-unexpected-costs/ -------------------- ABOUT RUNNING WITH CHINA -------------------- We are Jamon, Matt, and Terry (JMT), three Americans that have been living in China for a collective 30 years.

What is FREIGHT FORWARDER? What does FREIGHT FORWARDER mean? FREIGHT FORWARDER meaning - FREIGHT FORWARDER definition - FREIGHT FORWARDER explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A freight forwarder, forwarder, or forwarding agent, also known as a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), is a person or company that organizes shipments for individuals or corporations to get goods from the manufacturer or producer to a market, customer or final point of distribution. Forwarders contract with a carrier or often multiple carriers to move the goods. A forwarder does not move the goods but acts as an expert in the logistics network. These carriers can use a variety of shipping modes, including ships, airplanes, trucks, and railroads, and often multiple modes for a single shipment. For example, the freight forwarder may arrange to have cargo moved from a plant to an airport by truck, flown to the destination city, then moved from the airport to a customer's building by another truck. International freight forwarders typically handle international shipments. International freight forwarders have additional expertise in preparing and processing customs and other documentation and performing activities pertaining to international shipments. Information typically reviewed by a freight forwarder includes the commercial invoice, shipper's export declaration, bill of lading and other documents required by the carrier or country of export, import, and/or transshipment. Much of this information is now processed in a paperless environment. The FIATA shorthand description of the freight forwarder as the 'Architect of Transport' illustrates the commercial position of the forwarder relative to its client. In Europe, some forwarders specialize in 'niche' areas such as rail-freight, and collection and deliveries around a large port. One of the earliest freight forwarders was Thomas Meadows and Company Limited of London, England, established in 1836. According to "Understanding the Freight Business," written and published by the executive staff of Thomas Meadows and Company in 1972, the advent of reliable rail transport and steamships created demand for the fledgling freight forwarding industry. Trade developed between Europe and North America, creating additional demand. The first international freight forwarders were innkeepers in London who held and re-forwarded the personal effects of their hotel guests. The original function of the forwarder was to arrange for carriage by contracting with various carriers. Forwarder responsibilities included advice on documentation and customs requirements in the country of destination. His correspondent agent overseas looked after his customers' goods and kept him informed about matters that would affect movement of goods. In modern times the forwarder accepts the same responsibilities. It operates either as a domestic carrier or otherwise with a corresponding agent overseas or with his own branch-office. In a single transaction, the forwarder may be acting as a carrier (principal) or as an agent for his customer or both. International freight forwarders, NVOCCs and customs brokers often charge for transferring documents to another transportation company at destination. This fee is a part of the ocean freight charges, being paid by the importer at the port of discharge in the International Commercial Term (incoterm) FOB (free on board), and by the exporter at the origin in the incoterms CFR (cost and freight) and CIF (cost, insurance and freight). This fee is separate from documentation fees charged by carriers and NVOCCs as part of the freight charges on a bill of lading and is separate from other fees for document preparation or for release of cargo. Some companies call this an administration fee, document fee, document transfer fee, but it exists in some form in most destinations and is well known to most shippers. Steamship carriers do not have this fee.
