Docshipper services in China
Sea freight from/to China
Freight by sea is the most used means of transport, more than 91% of goods in the world travel with this means of transport because this way of transport allows the shipment of important quantities, and this at a price advantageous. You can optionally send your products with 2 distinct methods :
- LCL (Less Container Load): Less than the container load means freight forwarders send the products in one cargo where the products of multiple customers are bundled into. For products with low added value, it is advantageous to choose this method because, with the LCL method, there are 2 bulk breaking and therefore, more risk.
- FCL (Full Container Load): It is a container intended for one and the same consignee. It is a container reserved only by the shipper and exclusively for the transport of his goods. As the shipper will not have to share his container with other products from other customers, this will limit the risks because there is no bulk breaking in load and simplifies his logistics management.
Air freight from/to China
Despite the fact that the way is a very polluting means and which costs more than sea freight, air freight is the fastest shipping method and even for long distances. Here also, you have the choice among 2 shipping methods :
- Conventional Freight: Method which consists in exploiting free space with traditional airlines such as Air France, American Airlines, and Qatar Airways...
- Express Freight: For small quantities (pallets, parcels) it is recommended to use express shipping through companies such as UPS, FedEx, and DHL ...
