Cross-border logistics is one of China’s fastest growing service sectors. Alibaba has leveraged its ecommerce experience and dominance by growing its very own international cross-border logistics network Cainiao in Europe as well as China. This has tremendously facilitated the devolpment of faster and more affordable shipping and air cargo routes meeting the demand of the growing volume of cross-border shipments. We have partnered with a number of 3PLs across Europe who take care of all order pick-ups in every region after which shipment is being consolidated in Frankfurt, Amsterdam and London. Once shipment has entered China, our local partner there handles all custom clearance processes. Finally, last mile delivery to the Chinese customer is being affected. Return shipment will be handled as well for an additional charge.
