Additionally, this seminar was supported by the Shenzhen Cross-Border E-Commerce Association and the Japanese e-commerce solutions company Estore. Representatives from these two organizations also gave their thoughts on the developing e-commerce industries in Shenzhen and Tokyo, respectively.
During the seminar’s Q&A session, the various lecturers were invited onstage to answer questions. Many of the representatives asked about exporting goods from Japan to China, with Joshua Ruskin answering many of these questions. The attendees also inquired about how social media platforms play a role in the Chinese e-commerce industry.
This time the SF International Workshop talked extensively about cross-border e-commerce between Japan and China, as well as the development of the Chinese e-commerce industry in general. The Japanese participants were interested to learn about how the industry had developed and diversified over the course of time. They also learned more about SF Express Japan and its capabilities and services, noting in particular the recent December 2017 launch of its Nanjing-Osaka air cargo route. As cross-border e-commerce between the two countries continues to grow rapidly, SF Express Japan aims to further facilitate this development and contribute by providing cross-border logistics services for its international customers.
