China’s Foreign Trade Enterprises “Attack and Defend Well”

Multi-channel Development of International Market “Since the beginning of this year, the overall export situation of our cookware products has been quite good. Although the export volume to the US market accounts for the largest proportion, it is not greatly affected by Sino-US trade friction. However, if the trade friction problem persists, it may have some impact on the company’s exports next year. ” In an interview with the International Business News, Ye Minjuan, the export director of Zhejiang Estar Life Appliance Co., Ltd., said that facing the severe situation in the future export market, the company has already cooperated with some Italian factories and established production bases there, and some orders have also been transferred to Italian production. In addition, the company has also introduced several high-end cookware brands from Italy and Germany, which not only can help these brands expand the Chinese market, but also enable the enterprise itself to further expand the sales “width”.

Cai Feifei, Director of Business Development of Zhejiang Yongqiang Group Co., Ltd., also said in an interview with the International Business News that as an outdoor leisure goods foreign trade company established in 1992, more than 95% of the company’s total export share is to European and American customers. Due to Sino-US trade friction, the company’s exports to the United States market have declined, but its exports to the European market have increased, and overall exports remain stable.

“Since this year, our export volume to the U.S. market has declined by about 5%, but due to the wide coverage of our customer base, the decline has little impact.” Cai Feifei said that the company has always adhered to the “tailor-made” line for major customers, winning customers’ trust and a certain market share through differentiated products.

As a leading enterprise in glassware industry, Dai hong, general manager of Beijing beixiong science and technology industry co., ltd., said frankly in an interview with the international business newspaper that the company’s products are mainly sold to developed countries and regions such as Europe, the United States, Australia and Japan, with the United States accounting for about 60% of the market share. sino-U.S. trade friction has a great impact on the export of enterprises. In addition, the company is also affected by changes in consumer demand, market changes and other factors, and the export situation is very grim this year.

“After more than 30 years of experience, we will try our best to meet any difficulties in the future.” Dai Hong said that the company is currently dealing with pressure from various aspects and believes that it will be able to tide over the difficulties with the resilience of the enterprise.

Give Full Play to Resilience of Foreign Trade Enterprises In the current international and domestic economic situation is relatively grim, some foreign trade enterprises through continuous research and development of extension products, improve the added value of products and other ways to enhance the competitiveness of enterprises; Some foreign trade enterprises have not launched “attacks” on diversified categories, but have further “defended” the existing main categories and reduced costs by other means.

“Outdoor leisure products are consumables. Customers in many European and American countries change their garden products every summer, so from the perspective of body size, the export volume of such products will not drop significantly. We are optimistic about the prospect of outdoor leisure products. ” Cai Feifei said that the company is currently stepping up export efforts from two aspects. One is to continue to rely on a strong research and development team to produce personalized products according to customer needs. The second is to continuously broaden the categories of products and plan to develop all series of extension products of garden products, especially products with higher added value such as outdoor kitchens and high-end tents.
Dai Hong said that the company mainly produces ordinary soda-lime transparent glassware, including vases, candlesticks, tableware and dried fruit cans, all made by artificial blowing.

“At first, our products were sold to more than 100 countries and regions in the world, with the US market, European market and Asian market accounting for 30% and the Middle East market accounting for 10%. After the Asian financial crisis in 2008, the export of products mainly turned to the US market. For production-oriented enterprises, it is not easy to change the target market, because the market demands different shapes, sizes and styles of glassware, and it is not easy to change the channels that have been established after years of development. ”

Not only that, the current change in consumption habits also poses greater challenges to products. Dai Hong told reporters that the post-80s and post-90s groups, who are the main consumers abroad, are not keen on using glassware. They prefer iron or stainless steel products. In addition, the fragile nature of glassware has not completely changed due to factors such as shape, process and cost. “Based on this, we can only reduce the cost by reducing the office space and the number of exhibitors abroad.”

  • Foreign Trade Breakers, Cross-border E-commerce?

    2019 is almost over, which is also the 20th year for foreign trade dealer Wu Wenlan to export foreign trade. This year there is a key word in Wu Wenlan’s heart-“difficult”. It is common for the international trade situation to rise and fall, but in the past two years, Wu Wenlan has obviously felt the strain, because the orders are less and smaller than before. The changing situation and industrial upgrading forced him to re-examine his single traditional foreign trade mode and how to break the situation. Zhang Qingshan, who is also mainly engaged in foreign trade, has a different feeling. “Opportunities are always reserved for those who are prepared. Fortunately, a new attempt a few years ago has kept our business strong in the changing situation.” Zhang Qingshankou’s attempt is to export e-commerce. In his view, perhaps he is grasping a new wave of export dividends, “compared with traditional foreign trade, this is a brand-new business model, allowing us to directly face overseas consumers.” “As a result, pricing power and brand premium power are in our own hands; Two….

  • In foreign trade, I can’t escape these circles after all

    In programming, a program that cannot be terminated by its own control is called a dead loop. English is called endless loop, and there is a movie called looper. The Chinese name “The Ring Messenger” is wonderful. You can look for it. Getting into this cycle is really painful. There are also a large number of such cycles in foreign trade. Of course, some of these cycles may be caused by the parties deceiving themselves and others. To give a few examples: Recruitment and retention mechanism Many companies are just like hotels. People come and go. They are all passers-by. There is a saying called “Iron Battalion and Running Troops”. It is normal for people to come and go, but it is not normal for people to come and go for a long time. It is not normal for an impetuous industry and an impetuous region. There is no need to do a mechanism to retain people if there are fewer people. Without a mechanism to retain people, people cannot be retained!Infinite cycle. It is strange that even birds know…

  • Lack of customers in foreign trade? In fact, the thinking is too narrow

    Recently, it is the peak season for foreign trade. Many foreign trade companies are busy with their orders. But there are also few customers who worry about it. What is better in our business is that we serve more customers and have more knowledge. What I often hear is: our business is not good, our business is special, and our business has few customers. This is a typical way of developing customers without opening their minds. For example, there is a copper carving customer who uses Ding Yi to develop foreign carpet dealers and gardening companies. Because customers who make long red carpets have to put handicraft decorations on both sides of the carpets, the isolated carpets are not of good quality. Garden design companies not only plant trees, but also put statues. This is like the current popularity of the small B market. Furniture dealers have begun to develop individual designers in foreign trade. Although their products are scattered, the volume is still quite large at the end of the year. To do foreign trade, to do small, can…

  • What if the foreign trade bill of lading is lost? How to solve and deal with it?

    A bill of lading is a document that proves that the contract of carriage of goods by sea and the goods have been received or loaded by the carrier, as well as the carrier’s proof to deliver the goods. Since goods can only be extracted by bill of lading, bill of lading is of great significance in international trade, especially under FOB and CFR conditions, and is considered as the representative and symbol of goods. However, because only one set of bills of lading can be issued for one bill of lading, and the bills of lading are negotiable documents at the same time, the loss of the bills of lading will have a great impact on the development of foreign trade business, which may lead to the seller unable to settle the foreign exchange and the buyer unable to take delivery of the goods. With the continuous growth of China’s import and export trade, this kind of loss has occurred frequently in foreign trade companies recently. How should we deal with the loss of the bill of lading? There…

Well done, there are hundreds of thousands, hundreds of thousands or even more in a year (some people have outstanding abilities, taking a few big orders every year, one order can be made into tens of millions, deduct a percentage from a sum of money, calculate yourself, ability = money); If you don’t do a good job, you can only get a dead salary of several thousand dollars a month and tens of thousands of dollars a year (some companies stipulate that you can only get a commission if your order exceeds a certain amount every month.
