There is news about the European Shipping Network! In March 2022 it's that time again: You can send between the EU and the UK again. Accordingly, we would like to explain the most important things you need to be prepared for. Another interesting topic this week is Amazon Global Logistics, where there is new information about shipping from Asia. Furthermore, we would like to draw your attention to a new podcast episode for Sellers.
As mentioned at the beginning, shipping between the European Union and the United Kingdom will be available again starting next month. You can expect eligible listings to be unlocked by Amazon again by May 2022. You can find out if your product is eligible for the shipping network by mail. Starting at the end of March, there will also be a promotion where you can save 20 percent off the normal charges for shipping between the two territories.
Since many Amazon sellers have their products manufactured in Asia, you will subsequently need to ship the goods from there as well. Amazon Global Logistics is a system that handles the pickup of your goods, registration of the shipment, shipping, customs and delivery. What is new here are the prices for sea freight. You will now have to pay less for shipments with a volume of more than 15 cubic meters. You can also reduce your costs with Amazon Global Logistics, as the program enables more efficient warehousing. By the way, besides sea freight, there is air freight as a shipping option.
Entrepreneur Manuel Mayer is a guest on the new Amazon podcast. A few years ago, he founded the company Velmia and is now its CEO. Accordingly, he is in a position to impart important content to other Amazon Sellers who may still be new to the business. Among other things, you can learn a lot in the episode about how to get outside capital or how to network well. If you'd like to listen to the podcast, you can find the current and previous editions on Spotify, Apple, Google or Amazon Music, among others.
