    ea freight china to usa

    A. Sea shipping from China to the US

    One of the most popular methods of shipping from China to the US is ocean freight. As the name implies it means having your goods moved from China to the USA by sea. Sea freight is the cheapest international shipping method from China to USA.

    This mode of door to door shipping from China to USA is largely used by US importers that have goods that are bulky, heavy, or many. The freight is transported in containers on ships. Depending on how much your shipment is, you can use FCL (full container load) or LCL (less-than-container load) in 20’ or 40’ containers.

    With LCL, your shipments will be consolidated and packed with other shipments into one container, while with FCL, the entire container will contain your shipments alone. The option that is best for you when shipping from China to US by ocean freight depends on the quantity of your shipments.

    If your goods have a volume of less than 15 cubic meters, then LCL is best for you for shipping from China to the USA by sea. When your shipments are larger than this, then you can have them transported using FCL from China.

    As a specialist China freight forwarder from China to USA, we are highly equipped to assist you with consolidating your LCL shipments or arranging for your FCL shipments to be transported from any of the major ports in China to various destinations across the US.

    You can choose to have the manufacturer or supplier manage your logistics process when you are choose air freight China to USA or sea freight China to USA. Alternatively, you can work with a freight forwarder in China to handle the entire process for you.

    When you leave it to the supplier, you should expect the process to the slower and more expensive because the supplier will contact a freight forwarder to still handle the process. So, you will be the one still covering all the air freight rates China to USA and sea freight rates plus additional charges you did not sign up for.
