Daher können Sie sich Zeit nehmen, um alle erforderlichen Bestellungen bei verschiedenen Lieferanten zu tätigen - wir lagern alle Ihre Waren (die bereits eingetroffen sind) in unserem Lager, bis alles eingetroffen ist und Sie für den internationalen Versand bereit sind

Kostenlose Etikettierung von Paketen

CNXtrans  berechnet Ihnen keine Gebühren für die Etikettierung von Paketen in unserem Lager. Egal, ob wir Ihre Pakete mit Amazon FBA-Aufklebern für den Versand an Amazon FBA-Lager kennzeichnen oder Ihr Unternehmen auf Ihr Firmenlogo kleben sollen, senden Sie uns die Aufkleber einfach per E-Mail (contact@cnxtrans.com) wir kleben sie kostenlos für Sie auf. 

Kostenloser Umpackservice

CNXtrans  berechnet Ihnen keine Kosten für das Umpacken von Waren in unserem Lager. Sobald alle Ihre Pakete eingetroffen sind, greifen wir für den internationalen Versand darauf zu und entscheiden, wie wir sie am effizientesten verpacken, um Ihr Volumengewicht und damit Ihre internationalen Versandkosten zu minimieren. Dies kann bedeuten, dass Sie für bestimmte Artikel ein kleineres Paket verwenden oder einfach alle Artikel aus verschiedenen Paketen zu einem großen Paket kombinieren - wir tun alles, um Ihr Volumengewicht zu minimieren. 

Kostenlose Konsolidierung von Paketen

CNXtrans berechnet Ihnen keine Gebühren für die Konsolidierung Ihrer Pakete in einer einzigen Sendung. Dies ist ideal, wenn Sie bei mehreren Lieferanten/Fabriken/Alibaba-Herstellern  einkaufen, aber alle Ihre Waren zusammen als eine einzige internationale Sendung versenden möchten, um Ihre Versandkosten zu minimieren. Konsolidierung wird manchmal mit Umpacken verwechselt, aber tatsächlich kann Konsolidierung sowohl mit als auch ohne Umpacken erfolgen. Konsolidierung bezieht sich einfach auf den gleichzeitigen Versand mehrerer Pakete als eine einzige Sendung – sie müssen nicht alle zu einem großen Paket zusammengefasst werden – solange sie zusammen (gleichzeitig) versendet werden, gilt dies als eine konsolidierte Sendung. Es gibt eine Grundversandgebühr (die als Mindestversandgebühr angesehen werden kann) für jede von Ihnen durchgeführte Sendung, und der gleichzeitige Versand mehrerer Pakete (was eine Sammelsendung darstellt) stellt sicher, dass Sie diese Grundgebühr nur einmal zahlen müssen, anstatt zu bezahlen es für jedes einzelne Paket, das separat versendet wird.

 

Auch ohne sie in ein einziges Paket umpacken zu müssen, hilft Ihnen der gleichzeitige Versand mehrerer Pakete beim Sparen, da Ihnen nur einmal das Basisversandgewicht in Rechnung gestellt wird. So können Sie Ihre internationalen Versandkosten senken. Wenn dies für Ihre Sendung als angemessen erachtet wird, kann die Konsolidierung natürlich auch mit dem Umpacken einhergehen. Wenn wir nach der Bewertung Ihrer Sendung der Meinung sind, dass das Zusammenfassen aller Artikel in einem einzigen großen Paket oder in weniger Paketen dazu beitragen kann, Ihr Volumengewicht zu reduzieren, werden wir dies für Sie tun kostenlos.
