DHL eCommerce has opened an outbound Distribution Centre in Narita, Japan to help Japanese online merchants connect with important e-commerce markets.
The new centre introduces new international shipping products to Europe, US and UK to cater for different customer requirements.
The Deutsche Post DHL Group company that was established in 2014 says the DHL eCommerce Web Portal enables e-tailers to integrate their orders into the DHL network by preparing orders for shipping individually or in bulk, track and generate reports from a single portal.
DHL eCommerce Japan managing director, Yoshihiko Sasaki says: “In Japan, SMEs and sellers on marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay are the main cross-border e-commerce players, targeting markets in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.”
“To enable them to grow their business and reach a wider customer base internationally, they need a greater variety of international shipping solutions with high quality services while keeping their operational costs low.”
Sasaki adds that e-commerce is not limited to physical barriers and companies do not face geographical borders, and have flexibility to offer services and products to customers globally.
He says: “By combining the deep understanding of the Japanese market which DHL has, with DHL’s global network and expertise in over 220 countries and territories, we are in a good position to enable Japanese online merchants to grow their business in the international market.”
