DHL eCommerce, a division of logistics company Deustche Post DHL Group, has partnered with AuMake, an ASX listed retailer connecting Australian suppliers directly with Chinese consumers, to enable deliveries direct from Australia to China. AuMake’s growing database of over 80,000 members will now be able to ship direct to China with DHL eCommerce Parcel International Direct, a tracked service with transit times of 5-7 days to 90% of China.
“We’re proud to partner with AuMake to offer Parcel International Direct China to their customers and provide reliable and high quality direct shipping. We understand that trust is highly important for Chinese shoppers, particularly in the delivery process. Our shipping service offers great transit times, high quality handling and tracking visibility to connect Australian brands to Chinese consumers,” said managing director of DHL eCommerce Australia Denise McGrouther.
Australian products are highly sought after by Chinese online shoppers, contributing to 20% of cross-border purchases into China in 2017, up 9% from 2016. 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.
Through its growing footprint of showroom-style stores, AuMake and Kiwi Buy across Sydney, customers can make purchases and arrange a pick up 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 managing director of AuMake International Limited Joshua Zhou.
