Supply Chains of Cross-Border e-Commerce
AbstractA feature of e-commerce is worldwide coverage. Almost any person or company can be a customer of an online shop. However, this common availability is in practice quite apparent. Despite the dynamic development of e-commerce, communication in other languages, the form of payment, currency, legal and tax conditions, as well as the delivery of products remain barriers to the free cross-border flow. The article focuses on the last factor mentioned above. The lack of delivery of goods to a distant place or a relatively long time and high cost of providing the purchased product hinders further development of e-commerce. This problem can be solved by introducing an intermediary that consolidates shipments from many retailers and delivers them to many clients scattered in different corners of the world. The main contribution of this article is to develop a model facilitating cooperation between online shops dealing with cross-border trade. The purpose of the idea is to reduce costs and accelerate the delivery of goods ordered abroad via the Internet.
