Case Study

"Company A" that sold everyday use products

Company A, whose main business was mail-order sales from the United States to South Korea, has recently started mail-order sales of American-made supplements and daily necessities for Japan.

Prior to using our service, Company A shipped about 800 products to Japan a month, however by utilizing our service, which has delivery network to private homes all over Japan, drastically reduced lead time as well as shipping costs. After just one year of utilizing our service in Japan, the company A have successfully increased sales volume and shipments to 31 folds, approximately 25,000 units per month, as compare to a year prior.

As volume of the shipment increased, we have adjusted and fine-tune the shipping system according to the specification of the Company A in order to adapt and be able to create workflow that is even more efficient. As a result, even with the increased shipment, it is possible for the company A to continue the shipment process with a small number workers as before without burdening workload. Since we have our own system that specialize in ecommerce cross-border shipping, it is possible to make adjustments that cater to our clients' specific need.

In addition, since we undertake all transportation aspects from receiving items in the United States to delivery process in Japan, it is possible to visualize logistic process and centralize all inquiries regarding delivery. We receive accolades from our customers consistently regarding our one-stop solution that offers comprehensive range of cross-border e-commerce service.
