DHL eCommerce plans to open an outbound cross-border eCommerce distribution centre by April 2017 in Narita, Japan, in a move to widen the range of e-commerce logistics services available to e-tailers and marketplaces operating in the country.

At the same time, new shipping products will offer greater choices to reach consumers in Europe, US and the UK and the services will focus on reliability and value-for-money and will be tailored according to the unique needs of e-tailers and marketplaces in the Japanese market.

This latest development by DHL eCommerce will help drive Japan's booming cross-border e-commerce market, which is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16% and estimated to hit over EUR 1.1 billion (USD 1.2 billion) in 2018.

DHL Parcel International Direct, a cross-border shipping product, will offer affordable deliveries from Japan to the US and the UK with transit times of 4 to 6 business days, a game changer in the current Japanese logistics landscape.

Another cross-border shipping product, DHL GlobalMail Packet Plus will offer the best rates for Japan - Europe deliveries, with transit times of 5 to 10 business days and a high degree of visibility into the status of packages, the company said in a statement.

With an estimated cross-border e-commerce value of USD 40.8 billion, the US is one the top export destinations for Japan's e-commerce products with about 25% of digital shoppers in the country have made a cross-border purchase in the past 12 months.

Europe also presents a tremendous opportunity for Japanese e-tailers. There are currently 303.1 million digital buyers in the region and total e-commerce sales volume has hit USD 370.3 billion.

"E-commerce companies are not limited by geographical borders and have the flexibility to offer services and products to customers in other countries. By combining the deep understanding of the Japanese market which DHL eCommerce has, with the warehousing and transport management capabilities of our sister division, we will be able to explore operations such as fulfillment as part of a global partnership for our customers,” said Managing director of DHL eCommerce Japan Yoshihiko Sasaki.
