1.1. Air Freight

If you are shipping fewer goods and the size of goods are not that large, air freight is the best shipping solution for you. And this is the fastest shipping service.

However, there is no limitation if you are using air freight as your shipping mode from China to Thailand, but considering the expanse, you should pick sea freight for anything over 500Kg.

Air Freight from Thailand

1.2. Sea Freight

Sea freight is the most affordable shipping option for importers shipping from China to Thailand. Though it is slower, most businesses prefer sea shipping because of its cheap shipping rate.

LCL Shipping

In LCL shipping, you don’t need to book an entire container. The main advantage of LCL shipping is you can pay for the space you are using.

The process is very simple for LCL shipping. First, you have to tell your freight forwarder to book space for you in a cargo. Remember, you are not using the entire cargo. As a result, you will have to share one cargo with other shippers from Thailand.

When you send messages and information about your consignment to your freight forwarder, they will reserve a place for you in the cargo. They will prepare the necessary documentation and load your goods to the cargo.

You should be very careful while choosing LCL shipping because any casual activities in the shipping process can damage your goods. The freight forwarder should consider many factors before choosing a cargo for you.

Sea shipping

Winsky offers the best LCL service from China to Thailand. We have dedicated experts to choose a cargo that is ideal for your goods. We use the best people and the most updated technology to transport your goods.

LCL shipping is fast and cost-effective and the best way to manage your supply chain management.


If you choose FCL or Full container load, you have to book a full container. You don’t have the option to pay for the space you will use.

The process of FCL shipping is not very different from LCL. You have to tell your freight forwarder about the number of goods and types of goods you are bringing from China. You can book 20ft and 40ft containers according to the size of your consignment.

You should give every detail to your freight forwarder precisely as there are different types of containers available.
