April 24, 2023, was a great day in Miami for NextPlat (NASDAQ: NXPL, NXPLW) and U.S. businesses eager to expand their e-commerce efforts and market goods to the multitrillion-dollar Chinese consumer market. In collaboration with Alibaba’s Tmall Global, NextPlat formally introduced the launch of its new Florida E-Commerce Development Program (https://ibn.fm/UZGwH), the first in a series of new e-commerce development programs designed to provide U.S. businesses swift, easy e-commerce access to new customers in the Chinese market.

NextPlat’s next generation e-commerce platform was created to simplify and accelerate online commerce and uniquely enables customers and partners to optimize their e-commerce reach, presence and revenue. Partnered with Tmall Global, the leading import e-commerce platform in China, NextPlat’s new e-commerce development program seamlessly connects Chinese consumers to U.S. products and brands without the need for physical operations in China.
