With US supply chains overtaxed, packages shipped straight from China are growing fast.A 




Policy changes in the past few years have paved a fast lane for packages between Asia and the US.

Cheap, trendy clothes, $11 prescription glasses, cellphone accessories for a few dollars, all with free shipping: These are the hallmarks of modern e-commerce. And when the price is really, truly shockingly low, it's often because the products are skipping several levels of middlemen and going directly from China to customers' doorsteps.Perhaps the most prominent example is Shein, an online fashion company known for unbelievably low prices and aggressive social-media marketing. With an estimated $30 billion valuation, it's likely to be the poster child for this cross-border e-commerce trend for some time."A lot of times, US consumers may purchase something online," ACI Logistix President Kevin Collins said, "and have zero clue that that item is being sourced from China directly."Imports from China aren't new, of course. What's changing is that more Chinese companies are selling directly to American customers, rather than through US retailers.
