Amazon Global Logistics: Benefits, Risks, and Best Practices
Kaspien’s COO, Director of Retail Operations, and Director of Purchase Order Management join Kunal to discuss Amazon Global Logistics (AGL). AGL is an Amazon program that allows sellers to direct-import from China into different markets. Typically, importing from overseas requires multiple stops and multiple service providers, creating a lengthy and costly chain. AGL streamlines the process, reducing touch points and costs for sellers. However, there are risks to using AGL, especially if sellers become overly dependent on it. They also discuss best practices, including which product types benefit the most from using AGL, how to leverage economies of scale, and how to navigate Amazon’s quantity limit.
