How e-PAQ Select supports fashion retailers to conquer international markets

11 August, 2023


In today's globalised world, fashion retailers have unprecedented opportunities to reach customers all over the globe.

However, selling internationally comes with its own set of challenges, including navigating complex shipping logistics, ensuring timely deliveries, and maintaining a seamless shopping experience for customers. e-PAQ Select is Asendia's leading solution for fashion retailers seeking to conquer international markets while maintaining impeccable customer service and operational efficiency.

The International Fashion Landscape

The international fashion market is booming, with consumers seeking out unique styles and trends from all corners of the world. From iconic fashion capitals to emerging designers in far-flung locations, there's a treasure trove of options available to fashion enthusiasts. However, for fashion retailers looking to tap into this global demand, the logistics of cross-border shipping can be daunting.


Challenges Faced by Fashion Retailers

  1. Shipping Costs: International shipping costs can eat into profit margins, making it challenging for retailers to offer competitive pricing while still providing timely and reliable delivery options.

  2. Customs and Taxes: Navigating customs regulations and ensuring that customers are aware of potential taxes or duties is crucial to prevent any unpleasant surprises upon delivery.

  3. Delivery Times: Slow delivery times can lead to customer dissatisfaction and cart abandonment. Ensuring that packages arrive within a reasonable timeframe is essential for retaining customer loyalty.

  4. Tracking and Transparency: Customers expect real-time tracking and updates on their shipments. Providing this level of transparency can be a logistical challenge, especially when dealing with international shipments.

  5. Returns Management: International returns can be a headache for both retailers and customers. Streamlining the returns process is essential for maintaining customer satisfaction.
