International Express and international special line are both cross-border logistics methods commonly used by cross-border e-commerce sellers and foreign trade merchants. So, what's the difference between the two?

The difference between international express and international special line


First, let's look at the definitions of the two.

International express refers to express and logistics business between two or more countries (regions). The delivery business of letters, commercial documents and articles between countries (regions) refers to the way of delivering express items through border ports and customs. After the international express arrives in the destination country, it needs to be re-transferred in the destination country to send the express to the final destination, that is, the international express.

The international line refers to the line channel to a specific country. Generally speaking, the British line, the American line and the German line are all international lines, which are transported by air, sea and rail.


Advantages and disadvantages of international express

Advantages: International express is China's import and export air transportation business. It has customs declaration, inspection declaration, insurance, cargo packaging, warehousing, door-to-door service, cargo tracking business, and "sea and air" combined transportation to all parts of the world. In general, the timeliness is very strong, the protection of the goods is relatively high, and the customs clearance ability is strong.

Disadvantages: Compared with other international transportation methods (international small packages, international special lines, etc.), the biggest disadvantage of international express delivery is that the cost is relatively high. And there are no discounts, especially for personal and small business costs.


Advantages and disadvantages of international private lines

Advantages: The international dedicated line will concentrate a large number of goods to the destination and reduce the cost through the scale effect, so the price is lower than that of commercial express, the international dedicated line is faster than the postal package, and the packet loss rate will be relatively low.


Disadvantages: Compared with postal parcels, international special lines still have higher freight costs, and the scope of domestic foreign exchange collection is relatively limited. Logistics tracking is not as detailed as international express.


Why is the international private line cheaper?

International special line freight forwarding also cooperates with international express, mainly agents. As a dealer agent, you can get a relatively low discount, and the price is naturally much cheaper.

Because international express delivery is mainly based on the volume of goods, and most of the sellers' goods volume is not up to the standard of the large discount price of express delivery, then the cost is naturally more expensive.

The international special line freight forwarding is to collect the customer's goods, and the volume of the goods reaches the standard of the official discount, and naturally a larger discount price can be obtained, and each time the volume of goods is relatively stable, the discount of international express will be lower.


Therefore, if you want to save logistics costs, you can consider an international dedicated line. After finding an international logistics provider to cooperate, fill in the goods information truthfully, and pay the freight for transportation.



For the choice of international logistics line and international express, it is mainly based on your own situation. Choosing a suitable logistics method can not only deliver goods to customers faster, but also save more economic costs for the company.
