The news in the final quarter of the year seems to be all about consumer shopping events – from Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the US (and now also the UK and Australia), to Back to School and Year End sales in various other countries, leading into the pre-Lunar New Year shopping sprees in China, Japan, Vietnam and Korea in January.
"...sales in November and December could equal the rest of the year’s sales..."
This mammoth movement of retail goods has a global impact, as countries like Bangladesh, China, Vietnam amongst others have become the factories of the world to brands established in the US and Europe.
So the next question is - if you’re located outside of the US, UK and Australia but you’ve got a really good product which you know consumers will love, what do you need to do, to get it to these countries on time & within budget? And, would it be feasible for someone located in Malaysia to have something manufactured partly in Bangladesh and China for sale in Japan?
So, the answer to the questions above is a resounding yes, but do talk to us for your options – Alien Logistics works with partners across 6 continents; in the US alone, we have partner offices on both the East and West coasts… and even in the middle!
