What is the difference between Hai Pai and Hai Ka in international dedicated lines?

Sea freight, especially the first leg, is the most commonly used and mainstream shipping method for Amazon sellers. It can complete the first leg transportation of goods at a lower price, smoothly prepare goods to Amazon warehouses, control product costs, and obtain more product profits. But maritime transportation can be specifically divided into Haipai and Haika, and what are the differences between the two? After reading carefully, let’s have a detailed understanding.1. What is Shanghai style?Haipai, short for sea freight delivery, has a similar meaning to air delivery and can be understood as sea freight+delivery. The initial transportation of goods (origin and destination ports) is carried out by sea, and after arriving at the destination, sea freight cannot be used. Instead, commercial express delivery services such as UPS and FedEx are used for terminal delivery, which in turn delivers the goods to Amazon warehouses.International dedicated line2. What is Haika?Haika is the abbreviation for sea freight truck delivery, which can be understood as sea freight+truck delivery. The initial transportation of goods is the responsibility of the shipping company. After the goods are delivered to the destination port, the shipping company completes the transportation and hands it over to the trucking company for final delivery, delivering the goods to the corresponding Amazon warehouse. Simply put, the terminal delivery of Haika uses truck delivery, while the commercial express delivery of Haika’s terminal delivery is responsible for delivery.3. What are the differences between the two?The difference in shipping methods: There is a clear difference between the end delivery of Hai Pai and Hai Ka. The end delivery of Hai Pai is express delivery, and the end delivery is fast. At the end of the sea card, trucks are responsible for delivery, which has low delivery efficiency and slow freight delivery time.The difference in billing methods: There is a significant difference between Haipai and Haikard in terms of billing methods. Haipai adopts a per kilogram billing method, which charges based on the actual weight or volume of the goods, just like other cross-border e-commerce logistics. However, for sea freight, it is calculated based on the cubic meter of goods, and there is a significant difference in the calculation method of freight between the two.The difference in overall delivery time: The freight efficiency of Haipai is much higher than that of Haikard, so there is a significant difference in logistics delivery time between the two. Taking the United States as an example, the delivery time of Haipai is around 20-30 days, while that of Haikard is around 30-40 days. The maximum time interval between the two is 20 days, and the difference is significant.The difference in delivery prices: Obviously, Haipai provides better service and has stronger delivery capabilities at the end. Therefore, the receiving price of Haipai will also be higher than that of Hikar, after all, one cent is worth one cent. The overall freight cost of Haika is low, with a price of 8 yuan/kg-12 yuan/kg in the United States as an example. The fee for Shanghai style is between 9 yuan/kg and 15 yuan/kg.The difference in shipping restrictions: Generally speaking, the weight of a single piece of goods in Haipai is limited to 30kg, and the length of one side of a single piece of goods does not exceed 120 centimeters. For sea freight, there are no restrictions on the length and weight of the goods on one side, and there is a clear difference in the shipping restrictions between the two shipping methods.4. How to use it?Due to its fast delivery time and high efficiency, Haipai is more suitable for cross-border e-commerce sellers to send small items. For example, sending small items to Amazon warehouses or overseas warehouses is charged per kilogram with a smaller billing unit, making it more user-friendly for sellers. Moreover, e-commerce has high requirements for timeliness, and Haipai can better meet the logistics needs of sellers. Meanwhile, Haikou is suitable for larger tariff units, with each cubic meter as the billing unit. The billing unit is relatively large, making it suitable for exporting large and bulky items.Generally speaking, there are more foreign trade and export enterprises issuing sea cards, while there are relatively few cross-border e-commerce platforms. And once there are too many goods in stock, it poses a challenge to the seller’s finances.
