Since this year, the domestic cross-border E-commerce industry has rapidly developed. According to Guiding Opinions for Advancing the Healthy & Rapid Development of Cross-border E-commerce issued by General Office of the State Council in June, it pointed out that the development of cross-border E-commerce is conducive to exerting the advantages of big manufacturing country, advancing the transformation of enterprises and foreign trade structure, and promoting active measures of open economy development & upgrading. Ding Mingde, Chairman of GYIE, believes that cross-border E-commerce is an industry at the forefront location. However, it was mostly concentrated in the field of means of livelihood previously, so E-commerce in the field of production materials did not receive much attention. “As the basis of national industrial development, with in-depth advancing of ‘Internet + Trade’, the trend of cross-border E-commerce trade for production materials is irreversible.”
“During transaction of cross-border bulk commodity, a number of middle and small-sized enterprises cannot provide the letter of credit necessary in the international trade, so are difficult to make negotiations and trades with foreign excellent buyers.” ” Ding Mingde said that GYIE mainly focuses on serving those small & medium enterprises. On the one hand, it receives the demands of small & medium enterprises; on the other hand, it negotiates with overseas bulk commodity vendors to provide domestic enterprises with high-quality commodities.
Insiders hold the opinion that China is both a big manufacturing country and a big country purchasing industrial materials including various commodities. Yet, Chinese enterprises are still lack of pricing ability in the bulk commodity pricing field. “This is related to decentralized procurement of small & medium enterprises in China, and highly non-transparency of information.” Ding Mingde said, online transaction can provide the two trading parties with open and transparent information, and GYIE can grasp the latest relation between supply and demand by making match tradeoff as well. This is beneficial for manufacturing enterprises in China to promote the discourse power of pricing in the bulk commodity field.
Besides, affected by the current international and national economic current situations, the prices of international crude oil and other commodities have still fluctuated greater. With the longer general purchasing period of commodities, the frequently fluctuated price results in a certain distress to small & medium enterprises in China. With the aid of ensuring the supervision of guarantee and the design of futures hedging mechanism, GYIE bulk commodities cross-border E-commerce platform maximally relieves the influence on enterprise’s purchasing cost due to the fluctuation of market price. Also, with its own goods absorbing capability, even if the purchaser breaks an appointment, the platform can ensure the successful trade as the purchaser.
