A strategic agreement has been signed recently between ZIM and Alibaba.com, the largest B2B e-commerce platform in the world, for the direct purchase of sea freight. ZIM introduced Ladingo’s technology which is expected to improve logistics services to both sellers and buyers on China’s largest e-commerce platform.
As part of the collaboration between Alibaba.com and ZIM, Ladingo’s innovative logistics technology will simplify the shipping process while powering ZIM’s full door-2-door service through cloud software.
Both buyers and sellers are able to use Ladingo’s system. Taxes and duties are included in its shipping rate, and all customs clearance is taken care of by Ladingo and is seamless to users. All parties agree that it’s “the full DDP solution”. Ladingo technology will enable Alibaba.com’s sellers and buyers to take full advantage of its optimization and consolidation capabilities, thus ensuring that they enjoy highly competitive rates. The full DDP solution is already operational.
Eli Glickman, ZIM President and CEO, said,
“ZIM leads the way in the introduction of advanced new technologies within the shipping industry. This is especially important nowadays, since COVID-19 changed the way we live and work almost overnight. Aligned with our vision, ‘Innovative Shipping Dedicated to You’, our unique tailor-made solution powered by ZIM Logistics China and Ladingo will enable Alibaba.com to stay ahead of the curve”.
Ladingo CEO Hagar Valiano Rips aslo commented,
“B2B cross-border e-commerce should be as easy as classic B2C. When one wants to make an order of 2 pallets or even a container, there is no reason why the shipping or shopping experience should be any different”
