Cainiao Aeropolis eWTP Hub

AliExpress warehouse in the USA, Pakistan and other countries

Cainiao rents warehouse space for AliExpress in almost all countries of the world. But these warehouses are not the company’s own logistics hubs. That is, only a small amount of goods brought to the country of sale is stored there. They are cleared at customs and ready to ship.

Difference between own and rented warehouses

Aliexpress’s own warehouses are large fulfillment centers. Not only are goods stored there. They are processed in our own warehouses – packaging, sorting, preparation for shipment. Maintains a constant number of items that are frequently sold.

There are limited quantities of goods in rented warehouses. Only what the sellers themselves decided to bring to the country and register at customs. This speeds up logistics. But, unlike our own warehouses, the rented ones have a much smaller assortment of goods. Less choice.

On the card of each product on AliExpress, it is indicated in which warehouses it is located. You can choose from which warehouse the parcel will go to you.

How does the AliExpress warehouse work?

The Chinese internet platform does not sell its products. She only serves numerous sellers. That is, the goods that are in the AliExpress warehouse do not belong to either AliExpress itself, Tmall or Lowcoster. They are only stored there, sorted, packed and shipped.

The seller can deliver the goods to the AliExpress warehouse even before they are sold. This service is called fulfillment.

As soon as you make a purchase, the seller instructs the delivery of Aliexpress to send the goods to the address you provided. The warehouse staff will collect the order, pack it and hand it over to the carrier.

Customs clearance of goods can take place directly at the warehouses. To further speed up the delivery process.

Is it possible to pick up the goods from the AliExpress warehouse yourself?

No, you will not be allowed into the AliExpress warehouse. Simply because there is no staff to serve you. Large consignments are packed here, which travel to Moscow in heavy trucks. And already there they are delivered to the addresses by courier service. Including – to post offices and service centers.
