What are some ways to reduce shipping costs and save time from China to the United States?

  1. Ship your goods by sea rather than by air. Air freight is definitely the fastest method of shipping, but it’s very expensive and only suitable for small volumes. In addition, nowadays there are companies like ZIM that offer sea freight express lines that can take only 13-15 days
  2. If you do not need a full container, choose LCL – less than container load. By using this method, you can share a container with others and you will all save shipping quotes and pay per CBM.
  3. Make sure you check the estimated customs for your products’ US HS code if they are for e-commerce. You can find the official website here: https://hts.usitc.gov/
  4. You can use FBAFO China freight forwarder to ship goods from China to USA
