Recently, the China cross border E-Commerce Research Institute of Zhejiang University released the white paper on China's SMEs cross-border electricity supplier (hereinafter referred to as the white paper). In the white paper, Zhejiang University selects Alibaba international station as a research sample, and combs the opportunities and challenges for SMEs and traditional foreign trade enterprises to participate in cross-border electricity providers. The white paper predicts that the world trade operation system of Alibaba international will be formed in 2025, and cross-border electricity providers will become more mature.
The white paper points out that the wave of the new era not only brings opportunities to the majority of small and medium-sized cross-border electricity providers, but also small and medium-sized cross-border electricity providers should be vigilant to trigger a new round of shuffling industry change trend. First, with the emergence of more and more personalized demand, the trend of order demand fragmentation has accelerated, and the trend has gradually shifted to large orders, small orders, diversification of single orders and short term orders. The situation of zero and single trade highlights that small and medium enterprises lacking flexibility are in urgent need of transformation.
Second, global enterprises are rapidly rising to join the competition. The white paper shows that the emerging global enterprises based on platform ecosystem, from global access and integration of resources, to the global sale of goods and services, these enterprises will inevitably have a huge impact on traditional enterprises.
Third, the form of trade is complex. According to the white paper, the future trade form is no longer a simple B2B or B2C, but a compound trade form of B2B, B2C and B2B2C coexistence with three parties. In view of the fact that the complex trade mode that can not be operated by the platform, or lack of a large amount of manpower and material resources and technical capability input, the enterprises that will adapt themselves will face the risk of being eliminated.
In addition, the white paper shows that SMEs in the face of changes in the times, often lack the guidance of theory and practice, the general lack of two entrepreneurial mentality, most enterprises lack of transformation capability.
According to the white paper, faced with the opportunities and challenges brought by the global digital commerce stage to the small and medium-sized enterprises, Ali international station, as the global cross-border electricity supplier integrated service platform, should quickly establish a digital foreign trade full link solution covering digital precision marketing, digital trading and digital credit assets, helping the global SMEs to seize the new business opportunities in cross-border trade.
