For those engaged in international trade, shipping time and freight rates are two of the most important considerations when exporting goods from China to the United States.

Upon arrival in the United States, it may take up to six days for the ship to unload after a 33-day preparation period.


Traders shipping goods from China to the United States have a variety of options. How fast you need something depends on how much you want it and how much it costs. The freight forwarder will begin the shipping process after receiving your instructions.


Where can I find the most economical way to ship from China to the United States?


Shipping costs are usually the most important consideration when shipping from China to the United States. Read on to find out all you need to know about prices.


In the case of small parcel delivery

For small imports, such as product samples, it is unwise to use freight as the means of delivery. Getting there will be more expensive and take a long time. Here are the best choices for small items:


Regular post

Mailing is the most cost-effective way to send small and light items. For example, China Post offers a variety of delivery options, including small surface or air mail /SAL; SAL, Air Parcel or Surface Mail for large parcels; And EUB Priority system, EMS or China International Express for larger packages.


You must thoroughly research each alternative before making a final decision. Cheaper express shipping is more likely to occur when the product is heavier. But while mail is inexpensive, it takes a long time to get from China to the United States.


The express transport

International express delivery is more efficient and reliable than the postal service. The term "express" refers to this method. UPS, TNT or DHL, it doesn't matter. For small cargoes and products weighing less than 150 kg, this delivery method is the most cost effective option.

Although other delivery companies may charge you huge fees if you don't register.
