On January 4, 2016, transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) has opened its own store “transcosmos Overseas Flagship Store” (URL:http://www.kjt.com/Store/4175) within “KJT.com,” a cross-border E-Commerce website for the Chinese market operated by Shanghai Kuajingtong International Company Limited (Headquarters: Shanghai, China; President and CEO: Mao Wei). As part of the global E-Commerce one-stop service provided by transcosmos, it would offer attractive products from Japan to the Chinese consumers, utilizing an over-the-border E-commerce, and deliver by international delivery.
In China, along with the spread of the Internet consumer practice, the amount of total purchase by the consumers has increased, and the consumer needs to seek more secure and safer products are on the increase. The total amount of product purchase from Japan in the Chinese domestic market exceeds 600 billion yen, and the cross-border E-Commerce market in China is expected to grow to the 1.4 trillion yen scale by 2018. (Sources: Establishment of the Base Pertaining to Information and Services of Our Country’s Economic Society, 2014) On the other hand, in the area of sales through cross-border E-commerce, the reality at present is that there are quite a few challenges in terms of language barrier, tariffs, logistics, and customs.
“KJT.com” is a cross-border E-Commerce marketplace established by the City of Shanghai and Orient Electronic Payment Co., Ltd., an electronic payment systems company, and is rapidly growing. Also, “KJT.com” promotes E-Commerce marketplace in accordance with the cross-border E-Commerce platform measures led by the Chinese government (customs authorities) and establishes the pre-payment system for the tariffs and the base for international distribution to China.
transcosmos has opened “transcosmos Overseas Flagship Store” within “KJT.com” for sales of high-quality Japanese products, and at the same time, through this strategic partnership with “KJT.com,” cooperation in the areas of platform and logistics would bring into reality more seamless international business transactions and distribution.
Through a strategic partnership with “KJT.com,” more seamless cross-border E-Commerce shopping environment for the consumers is provided
“KJT.com” has distribution sites in The Shanghai Free Trade Zone (SFTZ), setting up a platform in cooperation with the Chinese customers. “KJT.com” has designed an efficient logistics function taking advantage of the pre-payment function of the tariffs and the The Shanghai Free Trade Zone (SFTZ), providing a cross-border E-Commerce mall in compliance with various laws and regulations. transcosmos has tied a strategic partnership with “KJT.com” in order to realize a shopping environment which would further satisfy the Chinese consumers.
