DHL eCommerce has done a deal with the Chinese consumer facing Australian retailer AuMake to enable deliveries direct from Australia to China. AuMake connects Australian suppliers with Chinese consumers. Its growing database of 80,000 members Will now be able to ship direct to China using DHL eCommerce Parcel International Direct shipping solution that has transit times of 5 to 7 days.
“We’re proud to partner with AuMake to offer Parcel International Direct China to their customers and provide reliable and high quality direct shipping solutions. We understand that trust is highly important for Chinese shoppers particularly in the delivery process. Our shipping solution offers great transit times, high quality handling and tracking visibility to connect Australian brands to Chinese consumers,” said Denise McGrouther, Managing Director, DHL eCommerce Australia.
Chinese shoppers are particular fans of Australian products, with some 20% of e-commerce imports into China coming in from Australia in 2017. In addition, there are an estimated 400,000 ‘daigous’ operating in Australia who act as an overseas personal shopper to buy and ship products from Australia to China.
AuMake and Kiwi Buy have successfully exploited this phenomenon with their showroom style stores in China. Customers can easily make purchases from those stores and arrange a pickup by DHL eCommerce for international deliveries from AuMake’s retail stores with the launch of the new service.
“The demand for Australian products from China is insatiable and through AuMake’s retail stores and the collaboration with DHL eCommerce, we are making it easier to ship from Australia to China. AuMake’s customers can shop and ship with the additional choice of using a well known and trusted logistics provide like DHL eCommerce, providing peace of mind that their purchases will be safely and quickly delivered,” said Joshua Zhou, Managing Director, AuMake International Limited.
