I believe that all the friends who engaged in dropshipping must have their own direct selling business in the United States. So, do you know how to choose the most suitable mode of transportation? This article will introduce you to the most suitable transportation mode of dropshipping in the United States.
For most suppliers, the goods they provide are shipped from China with an expiration date of about 7-10 days. If it is distinguished according to the channel, it is nothing more than sea transportation, air transportation, and so on. This article will tell you the most appropriate mode of transportation according to the division of the scale.
In terms of scale, it can be divided into two categories: small buyers and medium buyers:
First: Small buyers
For many small buyers, choosing the mode of transportation is nothing more than a very important issue, because they have no relevant experience; that is to say, they have doubts about the various modes of transportation dropshipping in the United States, so I recommend two modes of transportation that are suitable for small buyers.
1. Cross-border dedicated logistics:
Since the introduction of the United States dropshipping is the most appropriate mode of transport, then the introduction here is naturally the United States dedicated logistics. The price and transportation time of cross-border special lines are between international express delivery and postal parcels, and the advantage lies in the low packet loss rate. When the product is sent, I suggest that we should give priority to dedicated logistics. Its prices and limitations are relatively stable, and the prices and product attributes of different forwarders will be different.
As for this mode of transportation, there are also many logistics operators to choose from. And we will refer to the price, after-sales service, pickup service, transport speed, lost rate, and other factors, choose the appropriate transport company to cooperate with.
Here is a brief introduction to several cross-border dedicated logistics companies that we have cooperated with Veeddy dropshipping.

2. International Express:
The international express here mainly refers to UPS, FedEx, DHL, and TNT. For dropshipping in the United States, if you choose to use an international express as your transportation mode, I highly recommend using UPS. UPS has a unique price advantage in the United States, and the speed is fast, the service is good, and the packet loss rate is low, but at the same time, it has a fatal disadvantage: Its transportation costs are high, the price fluctuates greatly, and does not include taxes and fees.
Second: Medium-sized buyers
The so-called medium-sized buyers are mainly those store owners who need to do their product brand or the products that the store wants to produce, or if the store’s business condition is good, sales are stable, and so on. For buyers in this situation, it is generally appropriate to choose the following two modes of transportation:
1. Overseas warehouses:
Overseas warehousing service refers to the one-stop logistics service provided through an overseas self-built or leased warehouse, including the first transportation, warehousing management, and local distribution.
Using the transportation mode of overseas warehouses, we not only have lower logistics costs, faster delivery efficiency, and lower loss rate, but also order processing will be more convenient, inventory management and inventory will be clearer, and the return processing process will be more automatic and efficient.
2. The combination of sea transportation and air transportation:
Although the cost of air transportation will be relatively expensive, it has a fixed flight time, and in terms of safety, air travel is relatively safe. However, air transport can only transport small and medium-sized products. If the goods that need to be transported are large goods, air transport cannot support transport. Sea transport is suitable for large goods that cannot be transported by air, and the transport cost is also lower than that of air transport.
To give a simple example: The goods to be transported include both large products and some small products. For large-scale products that do not support air transportation, we can choose to entrust them to sea transportation; while for the remaining products, according to our cost budget, part of them can be delivered by sea and some by air. Various deployment and combinations of the modes of transportation of goods can maximize cost savings.
