On March 27th, Henan Aviation Logistics Enterprise and Hair Products Enterprise Docking Cooperation Symposium was held. The meeting discussed the new “difficulties” encountered by hair products enterprises.
Zhang Wei, vice chairman of the Xuchang CPPCC and director of the Bureau of Commerce, said that the hair products are the pillar industries of Xuchang's foreign trade. During the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, the total export volume of hair products in Xuchang City exceeded US$2 billion annually, accounting for 60% of the total export volume of hair products.

On the day of 2017, only 11 days, only Xuan City Jian'an District Electronics The business industry park sent more than 40,000 packages.
So expensive! Exporting a single wig will only cost 150 yuan for logistics.
With the increasing demand for overseas purchases of hair products, hair products industry transactions have also shifted to B2C.
Wang Xixiang said that at present, the entire hair products industry has been converted into B2C trade in large quantities. According to incomplete statistics, the annual B2C trade in Xuchang City is at least 300 million US dollars, but this part of the data is not included in the customs statistics, making the hair products enterprises face export. Some dilemmas.
Du Rongqing, president of Xuchang International Trade Network Merchants Association, further revealed that according to relevant regulations, small parcels that did not reach a certain weight were not included in the customs statistics, and the export data was lost.
It is reported that when the hair products industry is exported, because these data cannot be presented, it is not included in trade statistics, and it is difficult for enterprises to reasonably enjoy preferential policies related to exports.
"For example, it is difficult to refund taxes, difficult to settle foreign exchanges, and difficult to restore data." At the meeting, representatives of hair products companies pointed out new problems.
Zhang Xiang, general manager of Zhengzhou Chengchi Express Co., Ltd. told Henan Business Daily that the previous parcels were sent by postal means, and there was no way to retain the data. The foreign trade mailings of the products were fragmented, and many were sent by small parcels.

With the upcoming logistics price increase in April, the price per order has risen from 95 yuan to 150 yuan, and the company will bear 16 million international express logistics costs a year.
Innovative cross-border trade supply chain gives enterprises double “burden reduction”
It is understood that with the rapid development of cross-border e-commerce, more and more hair products are exported in B2C mode. In the previous survey, the Provincial Department of Commerce found that many single items were declared from the north to the Guangzhou-Shenzhen, and the transportation cost was high, which caused the loss of export data.
"Changes in trade methods have also caused hair products companies to face some problems." Zhang Yanming, secretary of the Party Committee of the Provincial Department of Commerce, said that most of the hair products companies in the province are through international express delivery giants such as DHL and UPS, from Shenzhen and Guangzhou. Cities such as Shanghai have declared their exits, which not only led to the loss of huge export trade data from our province, but also increased the logistics costs of enterprises.
“Currently, our province is accelerating the creation of the “Silk Silk Road. More and more Henan logistics enterprises are carrying out air cargo business. However, due to the poor communication channels between logistics enterprises and hair products companies, many hair products enterprises still do not understand Henan. Provincial aviation logistics companies can provide professional integration services. Gao Xiang, deputy director of the Henan Provincial Department of Commerce, said that the business hall held the symposium.
It is reported that in order to promote customs clearance and trade facilitation, in 2017, Zhengzhou Customs and Henan Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau took the lead in creating a “9610” cross-border export model in the country, realizing “list of nuclear deposits and summary declarations” for export commodities, and exploring and implementing “ Simplify the declaration and export tax rebate.
In addition, some companies have sought cooperation with hair products companies to explore new logistics models, provide professional integrated services for SMEs, help companies reduce trade costs, solve data loss and other issues, and help companies explore the international market.
For example, in 2018, Beijing Cat E-Commerce Co., Ltd. and Xuchang Ruimei Zhenfa Co., Ltd. reached a cooperative relationship. On February 2, they passed the Xuchang-Zhengzhou-British wig export B2C first order, and received the goods from home. Delivery is only 3.5 working days. This is undoubtedly a new attempt for hair products companies that rely on traditional mailing methods in foreign trade.
The person in charge of Xuchang Ruimei Zhenfa Co., Ltd. said that this attempt not only reduced the logistics cost, but also helped the enterprise to restore and preserve the foreign trade export data, so that enterprises can apply for tax rebates and subsidies, which is equivalent to giving enterprises double burden reduction.
In order to further explore cooperation, at this meeting, Beijing Cat and Xuchang Ruimei Zhenfa Co., Ltd., Henan Xinbaifu International Logistics Co., Ltd. and Xuchang Jinfuyuan Hair Products Co., Ltd., Henan Weiku Supply Chain Management Co., Ltd. and Henan Rebecca Hair Products Co., Ltd. signed a cooperation agreement on cross-border e-commerce supply chain cooperation projects.
