Moreover, global trade in PPE has become a trend, which is significant in ensuring global supply of protective equipment, promoting industry innovation and development, and facilitating international economic cooperation and exchanges. However, currently, the export and import of global industrial protective equipment face some challenges, manifested in:

1. Logistics and Transportation Challenges:

3. Payment and Settlement Issues

Offline transactions may involve multiple currencies and payment methods, increasing the complexity of payments and settlements. Additionally, different countries' payment habits and regulations may pose additional risks.
