                Virtual overseas warehouse

                The virtual overseas warehouse is a mode of direct domestic shipment and overseas warehouse delivery. The operation mode is: when the platform generates the order, the system will be in the back of the transportation form, and after packaging, it will be packaged through various channels. Send to the overseas warehouse and then unboxing the distribution mode.

                1) It is possible to control the timeliness of the entire process according to the timeliness requirements of the platform.
