ImportGoGo has launched an “Internet + Import” innovative model with nine major inquiry tools, whole process logistics tracking, active message notification, one-stop price quotation in 10 seconds and complete services covering 12 product categories
ImportGoGo, the one-stop import cloud platform, was officially launched in September 2020, ushering in a new era of one-stop intelligent solutions for import trade agency, logistics, customs clearance, warehousing, finance and others. Now half a year later, based on a complete analysis of users’ feedback and technology advancement, ImportGoGo has comprehensively upgraded its WeChat Mini Program, official website and systems. An updated version of ImportGoGo one-stop cloud platform will be launched in March 2021.
What’s new in the updated platform?
The updates of ImportGoGo one-stop cloud platform are mainly reflected in the following four aspects.
Integrating nine major inquiry tools. In addition to the conventional HS CODE inquiry, new functions are added including documents inquiry for customs clearance, shipping information tracking, air transportation tracking, ship positioning, customs declaration status inquiry, shipping date check, airport’s IATA code check, and port information check. In traditional import trade services, customers often have a great dependence on the information provided by import service providers, such as logistics and transportation status, customs declaration status, etc. Service providers become their only source of information. However, now with the ImportGoGo cloud system, all the information is made transparent. Also, in traditional import services, it’s complicated for customers to make inquiries on other relevant information. So in order to save time and improve efficiency, ImportGoGo integrates the functions of shipping date inquiry, airport’s AITA code inquiry and port information inquiry.
Freight status real-time tracking and message notification. For the first time in the industry, ImportGoGo cloud system introduces big data services of shipping tracking, ship positioning and air transportation tracking. With supplier information of hundreds of shipping companies and airlines around the world and AIS data from more than 100 satellites, users are able to do real-time and visualized cargo location tracking for shipping and air transportation. Users can get cargo transportation information anytime and anywhere via ImportGoGo system platform on PC or WeChat Mini Program on a mobile phone, including the dynamic information of different sections from international logistics, domestic customs clearance to domestic logistics; real-time cargo location; customs clearance status, etc. On one hand, these services greatly reduce the cost of human communication; and on the other hand, it simplifies cargo circulation procedures at ports and ensures timely delivery of cargos. Users can also follow ImportGoGo’s WeChat official service account to receive message notification for different sections of the cargo transportation so as to fully grasp the entire import process.
One-stop price quotation for multiple services in 10 seconds. ImportGoGo Mini Program and official website upgrade from the original single service quotation to one-stop integrated quotation for multiple services. After ticking the services they need and typing in the relevant information, customers can get an integrated quotation in 10 seconds, which is really convenient and time-saving. Moreover, for the convenience of customers, we also add the functions such as “one click to entrust”, “confirm the quotation” on the WeChat Mini Program in addition to the PC system.
Product services are expanded to 12 categories. Apart from cosmetics, beauty machines, medical equipment, pre-packaged food, wine and clothing, our services are expanded to more categories including infant & mom products, pet products, electromechanical equipment, electronic products, kitchen appliances and household products, to help clients import a wider range of high-quality products from all over the world. ImportGoGo system not only expands product categories, but also provides targeted import services for each category, largely considering convenience and good user experience.
Are there any other updates for the new version?
Explore the weak points of traditional import services and introduce more intelligent functions. After an enrichment and adjustment of the system’s organizational structure, it now makes even clearer the responsibility assignment of different characters and levels. Multiple supplier options and intelligent recommendation services are introduced in the freight rate inquiry process, providing customers with a variety of choices of suppliers and import services. We have also refined the services of supply chain finance, and launched various safe financial services in cooperation with a number of banks and insurance and financial management companies.
Promote the smart ecosystem of cloud system and upgrade WeChat Mini Program. ImportGoGo builds a smart ecosystem that integrates cloud system, official website, WeChat Mini Program and WeChat public service account. These business sectors and their UI design specifications will gradually achieve a synchronization. Meanwhile, we understand that WeChat Mini Program caters to users in the mobile Internet era, because it removes the need of downloading and installing an APP. Therefore, ImportGoGo will follow the trend of “Internet+Import” model and keep improving its WeChat Mini Program.
