It is quick and easy to find dropshipping suppliers from Aliexpress and other locations. You may even like their quality and service.
Expecting dropship suppliers to ship to U.S. consumers is both frustrating and expensive.
For example: You fill 20 small product orders a day, shipping from China to the U.S. This is a logistical nightmare for you.
Consider: Combine the 20 small product orders into a single, organized package and ship from China to the U.S. via DHL courier. A team in the U.S. divides the large package into the 20 individual ones and forwards the orders to your customers via DHL.
What is easier? Shipping one large package or 20 small ones? The answer should be clear.
The final shipping cost is almost the same as EMS, but DHL shipping is more reliable with fewer packages lost in transit.
The decision should make perfect sense to you as a dropshipper.
Your custom, branded products are of top quality. You lack the necessary resources to ship to different customers on a daily basis.
You need a dropshipping fulfillment service.
Sourcing Nova offers dropshipping fulfillment services similar to that of Amazon FBA:
Sourcing Nova’s core business is sourcing products from the same foundries as world-class brands. Labelled products arrive in our Bao’an, Shenzhen warehouse, convenient to the Shenzhen airport. You receive:
Less than $1,000
Get services from top manufacturers: Top manufacturers do not offer dropship services to overseas customers. Sourcing Nova bridges the gap between these manufacturers and your customers with dropship services.
Shipping assistance: Most dropshippers in China use Epacket, EMS or DHL for direct shipping to end user customers. Epacket has terrible user experience reviews. EMS and DHL direct significantly affect profit margins.
Most dropship agents in China do not have the ability to optimize the supply chain to the degree Sourcing Nova can. A significant number of packages is expensive to ship directly from China to the U.S, with the fees often higher than the products itself.
Combining many different packages into a single, unified order is a wise shipping decision. Shipping costs for 10 one kg. packages is more expensive than one 10 kg. package.
Best practices is a two stage process: 1. Combine packages into a single package for shipment via DHL to the U.S.; 2. U.S. warehouse teams sorts and sends packages to the end customer.
The process increases the shipping time by one or two days, but the savings on shipping costs is worth the extra time.
This is not a simple process. As a dropship agent, you need a physical warehouse and team on hand in the U.S. You also need a fulfillment system ready. (Note: Any smaller packages as part of the main package cannot be attached to the waybill.)
Sourcing Nova has an established fulfillment system and warehouse in the U.S. We have a unique indentifying system similar to Amazon.
The U.S. warehouse staff scans product labels. We print the DHL slips and ship packages to the end customer via DHL.
