Introduction of our logistics service in China
The outline of our logistics service using bonded area in China as an example of Door to Door service
In China, as a general rule, the business transaction is not allowed and the payment cannot be settled if physical distribuation and commercial distribution are different. However, if we use "Bonded Logistics Park", this type of business transaction can be handled. Bonded Logistics Park is customs controlled zone located in or nearby bonded area and is comprehensive bonded area which has functions of both bonded area and logistics park. The biggest feature is " it's regarded as export to bring in the cargo to Bonded Logistics Park, and regarded as import to bring out the cargo from there." By using this function, there's no need to export the goods to Hong Kong and re-import to China for VAT refund any more, and there is a great benefit of reducing lead time and cost.
 On the spot export / import
If a Japanese company which doesn't have office in China wants to store, distribute, buy and sell Chinese goods in China under their own company name, firstly they need to import the goods from China to Japan, secondly tranfer ownership of the goods to their company, and finally re-export the goods to China. Also, the vendor in China needed to export in order to get VAT refund. There is a way to simplify these export and import procedures, which is Bonded Logistics Park. When the goods are brought in to Bonded Logistics Park, it is regarded that the goods are exported from China and the ownership of the goods can be changed. And by bringing out the goods from Bonded Logistics Park in order to sell them in China, it is regared that the goods are imported to China. In this way, it is called "on the spot export / import", because it is regarded that the goods are exported and imported even if the goods are actually in the area in China.
・Reduction of cost and lead time because only inland transport is needed.
・Lower risk of cargo damage
・Foreign currency payment is available, since Bonded Logistics Park is considered to be foreign country.
・Even a company which doesn't have office in China, they can store the goods in bonded warehouse in China (without expiration date)
・By using Bonded Logistics Park, the procedures can be simplified not only when to resell finished goods but also when to resell semi-finished goods (primary products) produced by a contract manufacturing company in China to another contract manufacturing company in China.
 Buyer's Consolidation
After consolidating multiple Chinese vendors' goods at Bonded Logistics Park, the goods are stored as non-resident assets which belong to the shipper in Japan, and when needed, the goods are loaded on marine container and exported to other countries including Japan by marine transport.
・Low cost storage
・Reduction of transport cost by consolidating goods
・Smooth import customs clearance arrangement in Japan CY
 Stock & Delivery
After entering to China, the goods from Japan are stored as bonded goods, and the goods supplied by multiple vendors in China are also stored as bonded goods and as on the spot export goods. They are consolidated and stored in warehouse in Bonded Logistics Park under the name of Japanese shipper (Japan headquaters). When they get shipping order from selling place in China, they arrange import customs clearance and deliver the goods to selling places in China just in time. As the same flow, it is also possible to store the goods as vendor's asset and conduct VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory).
・Reduction of total logistics cost
・Improving cash flow by inventory optimization
・Reduction of customs clearance cost : at Bonded Logistics Park, when to go through customs clearance several times or when the amount of goods is small, they can be customs cleared all together by getting permission by customs.
