I. Shipping Methods
For shipping products from China to your destination, we offer air express (operated by FedEx, DHL, UPS, etc), air freight, sea freight for different shipments.
Air express is suitable for small shipments of less than $200kg. Airfreight is a more competitive price than air express when the shipment is more than 500kg. Sea freight is the cheapest shipping way, but only suitable for shipment more than 3CBM.
Capacity: 28CBM Payload: 17.5Ton
Capacity: 58CBM Payload: 22Ton
Capacity: 68CBM Payload: 22Ton
II. Shipping Terms for Sea Freight
Our customer representative will quote you the product price by EXW term, but you can also request them to quote you the price for other shipping terms.
#1 EXW (Ex Works)
Customers must arrange transportation all the way from our warehouse in Guangzhou (200km away from Port Hongkong, China) to the final destination. And customers are responsible for all export processes.
#2 FOB (Free on Board)
As the product price we quoted is EXW, customers need to pay extra FOB costs, depending on the total volume of the shipment. We deliver cargo to the Port of Ningbo, handle the export process. Your own forwarder will manage shipping from Port Ningbo to your place.
#3 CIF (Cost Insurance Freight)
We arrange delivery to the Port of Destination in the customer’s country. But customers need to manage shipping from port to their warehouse and do the import process.
#4 DDU/DDP (Delivered Duty Unpaid/Paid)
We charge you an all-included shipping price to your destination for air freight and sea freight. You don’t need to find a local customs broker to handle the customs clearance, but just receive the product at home.
Usually, forwarders will quote a very low CIF fee in China, but charge a lot when you pick up cargo at the port of destination, much more than the total cost of using FOB term. If customers have a reliable forwarder, FOB or EXW term will be better than CIF.
