The rapid development of cross-border e-commerce has driven the development and upgrading of cross-border logistics. Cross-border e-commerce provides a broad space for the development of cross-border logistics. The development of cross-border logistics strongly promotes the development of cross-border e-commerce. Cross-border e-commerce and cross-border logistics complement each other.

At present, the increasing scale of cross-border e-commerce in China has brought a strong potential market for the development of cross-border logistics. However, as cross-border logistics is a new industry derived from cross-border e-commerce, its operation is not mature and there are still some problems. Let''''s have a look at it.

1. Cross-border cross-border logistics cost logistics cost is higher mainly includes transportation costs, tariffs, overseas logistics cost, etc., while cross-border electrical contractor who will be on cross-border logistics cost control, but because of many factors (customs duties, abroad to resend, warehousing, etc.) cannot be completely normal control, logistics cost is high.

And the choice of logistics transport mode is not air or sea transport, transport mode is relatively single, even if the price of air or sea transport rose, also can only take the scalp, logistics costs directly increased a lot.

2. The development of cross-border logistics and cross-border e-commerce is not coordinated with current cross-border e-commerce customers, who need to be more diversified and personalized. Safe delivery of goods to customers can no longer meet current logistics needs.

Moreover, overseas warehouses are generally used by medium and large e-commerce enterprises, because they can afford the expensive storage costs. However, the number of free trade zones is insufficient, and the needs of cross-border e-commerce cannot be met.

Compared with domestic logistics, international logistics is more complex and cumbersome. Logistics emerged later in China than foreign countries and developed less well than foreign countries. Cross-border logistics involves a series of links such as transportation, customs declaration, inspection, warehousing and distribution. Compared with domestic logistics, the most obvious feature is the need for customs declaration.

The basic implementation and construction of China''''s domestic logistics is more perfect than that of international logistics. International logistics needs to connect and integrate with the logistics information of the destination country or region, but the systematic network has not been realized, thus increasing the cost of cross-border logistics.

Moreover, as it is an international trade, if the customer needs to return or exchange the goods, the freight for returning to China is often much higher than the freight sent out. If we send the goods again for the customer, we need to pay the freight again. This order only breaks even, and we also need to post the money instead, so it is difficult to realize the service of return and exchange.

4. Cross-border logistics information opaque cross-border logistics transportation occurred in countries (regions) and places, between information docking with foreign logistics providers do not reach the designated position, cause logistics information can''''t tracking, where the goods, why get stuck in one place without logistics information updates, when will the goods delivery and other issues will be customers have been asking, foreign customers because can''''t see the logistics information, can better arrange their own time to ready to accept the goods, customer satisfaction will be reduced.

Cross-border logistics is a new industry, which is not as developed as domestic logistics.

In China, e-commerce and logistics majors in many universities are set up separately. There are few courses for cross-border e-commerce and cross-border logistics majors, and there is no in-depth study of cross-border e-commerce and cross-border logistics knowledge. Universities and governments do not provide enough support for cross-border e-commerce and cross-border logistics. There are few logistics talents who know both cross-border e-commerce knowledge and cross-border logistics operation.
