If you’ve ever wondered about our warehouses and shipping or perhaps even had a question about your own order, then this may be a very helpful article for you! As an international company that ships to so many countries all over the world, Banggood’s logistics can often be a complex and affair involving part of the company in multiple countries.
Where our warehouses are
Although our base in in Guangzhou, China, we operate a network of warehouses on three continents, namely Asia, Europe and North America.
Our Asian warehouses are located in China, and they are spread throughout cities in Guangdong, our home province, including Guanzghou, our hometown!
Our European warehouses include locations in the EU. We find it helpful to useful base our European warehouse there to help ensure speedy delivery of products to both EU customers and the UK as it is closer to many customers.
Our North American warehouse is in the US and usually handles shipping for both North and South America, unless items are ordered which it doesn’t stock.
Why we ship from a particular warehouse
Usually the reason Bangood chooses which warehouse to ship from are based on the needs of the customer, for example speedy shipping, when products are needed urgently or perhaps if customers will pay lower shipping costs for the same product shipped from another warehouse. Often the most geographically closest warehouse will handle the order however there are times when this isn’t possible, as discussed above.
Effectively, the decisions made about shipping are based on cost, speed and stock, as you’d expect (and admittedly Banggood does on occasion struggle to achieve the standards they aim for, but isn’t it quite extraordinary how far the world has come in shipping and communications!
We’ll certainly aim to improve and expand and we hope this has given you a little more insight into how Banggood’s warehouses work!
