Damco to streamline cross-border e-commerce


Maersk's forwarding unit Damco plans to streamline cross-border e-commerce with an initial priority system of tackling the lack of a proven returns solutions in China.
Dutch-based forwarder and supply chain solutions specialist noted that domestic e-commerce sales rates are expected to flatten, while rapid growth is expected from the cross-border segment.
Asia Pacific region is leading the way and, in China, cross-border commerce has expanded by 70 per cent year on year, said Damco, reported London's Air Cargo News.
Return ratios for cross-border e-commerce currently run at 30-40 per cent, a figure which is also is expected to grow. But cross-border returns are more expensive.
Damco's latest initiative aims to address this point by offering its customers a robust, fully-digital returns solution supported by government and location authorities.
"In global e-commerce, speed and visibility are essential," said Damco e-commerce chief Damon Gu.
"Our goal is to connect and simplify our clients' supply chains. That means offering the fastest route to government approval, speeding up the process and reducing costs.
"Furthermore, new digital platforms will deliver complete supply chain visibility and product traceability," Mr Gu said.
Damco handled a total of 190,000 tons of air freight in 2016.
