How to ship a container from china

Shipping from China is primarily done by air and sea. Let’s look at the shipping processes of both.

1. Shipping By Air Freight 

Step 1: Find a reliable freight company. This must be wise because a good company makes your process easy.

Step 2: Provide all the details of your shipment to the company. Ask them about the shipping charges and the services they will cover. Some shipping companies offer shipment consolidation to reduce shipping charges and time.

Step 3: Your container gets delivered to the airport by the manufacturer. Some manufacturers do not provide this service, so you can ask the shipping company to pick it up. 

Step 4: The shipping company now loads your container on the plane. You can do it yourself too, but that’s a difficult process. Once the shipment reaches the airport, it goes through custom checking. The freight company will deal with the customs officers to clear your shipment.

Step 5: Get ready to receive the container at your asked address. Clear out any remaining payments of the freight company to avoid any misconception.

2. Shipping By Ocean Freight

Step 1: Move the cargo from your manufacturer to the port. Some ocean freight companies provide this facility too. You ask if they cover transportation from the manufacturer to their location.

Step 2: Ask the company about custom clearance before hiring them. Custom clearance needs to be done by the freight company. Once the shipment reaches the port, it’s their job to clear the cargo.

Step 3: The next step involves loading the container on the ship. Ensure to be gentle with your container, especially to ship delicate goods.

Step 4: From here, the duty of the freight company starts. They ship the container to your destination themselves.

Step 5: Your task includes getting continuous updates about the container. Continuous reminders help them keep on track. Also, it helps you know how much more time your container takes to reach the destination.
