To DDP, or not to DDP, that is the question

The world is getting smaller and this is true for internet shopping (B2C) too, but is the consumer getting a raw deal?

The doorbell rings and your package has arrived – you got a great deal online and have been eagerly awaiting the delivery. But before you can get your hands on it, the courier explains to you that you have to hand over cash to cover import taxes. “But I’ve already paid the shipping and I’ve got no cash on me!”, you protest. The couriers card machine isn’t working and he’s not in the mood – this is a regular occurrence for him.

If you’re looking to expand your business to overseas consumers and expect repeat sales, make sure they know what it’s really going to cost them and even better include all the costs at checkout.

For B2C (Business-to-Consumer) companies around the globe, striving to provide the best possible service to their customers, should they be looking to sell their products DDP?

DDP – Delivered Duty Paid (all costs and responsibilities are with the seller/shipper).

A New Silk Road - Cross Border B2C eCommerce into China

The ecommerce market in China is experiencing rapid growth as Chinese consumers shift from traditional shopping methods to shopping online. Cross-border ecommerce is experiencing unprecedented growth in popularity, and goods sold via the business-to-consumer (B2C) channel are expected to contribute an increasing share of the total market.

Cross-border ecommerce is spreading to a wider population base with purchases amounting to a spend of $85.76 billion in 2016. According to a joint study undertaken by Accenture and AliResearch, 200 million Chinese overseas shoppers or “Hai Taos” will purchase 245 Bn US$ worth of goods from abroad by 2020.

Chinese consumers rely on reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations from trusted sources to make decisions on products, and with overseas goods and brands being perceived to be of higher quality than those available domestically, the product’s origin is considered as an important measure of quality.

With integrated supply chain solutions allowing delivery times from the online order to the consumer in China to be as little as 4 days, it is not unknown for the end consumer to suspect that their goods originated from China, leading to disputes. To avoid reputational issues, vendors insist that shipping labels, showing the origin country, are not covered by subsequent courier labels. In an effort to further reassure the end consumer of a product’s origin, logistics providers have implemented track & trace solutions which provide detailed tracking information covering the entire shipping process.

It is clear that when providing a B2C logistics solution for delivery to customers in China, the importance of implementing a high availability supply chain visibility system at the centre of operations, which can support operational processes in real time, and support data gathering and visibility at every step of the shipping process cannot be overlooked.

Exception based management

Global supply chains are inherently complex, multi-party, multi-process with high degrees of uncertainty, therefore visibility technology is essential to moving to a more productive, exception based management practice.

Visibility systems collect a potentially huge amount of data. Configuring the solution to present appropriate information can help your users work in an exception management fashion - rather than wade around the system.

Role-based views, personalised task lists and exception reports are vital to achieving best use of the available data. Role-based views can enable broader access to your solution across your stake holders. Providing visibility to your DC partners, for example, enables them to accurately assess what equipment and resources they will need for each incoming vessel from Asia.
