Certis24 can help eCommerce retailers and brands with their market entry research, analysis and implementation strategies to exploit China’s rapid growth in eCommerce.

We assist in building a deep understanding of how Chinese consumers buy, what they are seeking from overseas suppliers and how to capitalize on those needs.

For postal operators, parcels and logistics companies , Certis24 offers structured market entry guidance which includes access to China’s postal system and its rapidly developing ‘alternative’ logistics infrastructure of parcels delivery companies and couriers.
