Sea transport

For the shipping transport, you have two options :

1. Consolidated container transport (full container) – FCL (Full Container Loading)

Advantage :

  • The least expensive option if the volume of shipment is big (more than 10 CBM - cubic meters).
  • The most secure transport (containers are sealed from the departure of goods).

Drawbacks :

  • Takes a long time, the transit time from China to Europe is between 28 and 35 days.
  • Many costs.
  • Relatively uncertain deadlines (frequent delays, many weather vagaries, frequent personnel strikes at the seaport).
  • Important transportation surcharges related to the seasonality of shipments.

Price : depending on the type of the chosen container :

  • 20'' about 27 cubic meters.
  • 40'' about 60 cubic meters .
  • 40'' HQ about 70 cubic meters.

2. Transport by collective shipment – LCL (Less Container Loading).

Advantage :

  • The least expensive option if the volume of shipment is small (less than 10 cubic meters).
  • The least expensive option for transporting very heavy and less bulky objects.

Drawbacks :

  • Require between 8 and 10 days to have a departure date in China.
  • Take a long time, the transit time from China to Europe is between 33 and 40 days.
  • A lots side costs.
  • Relatively uncertain deadlines (frequent delays, many weather vagaries, and frequent personnel strikes at the seaport).
  • Unloading time of bulk container at the seaport sometimes quite long.
  • Goods often damaged (prefer a transportation on filmed pallet in case of collective shipment).

Price : depending on the number of transported cubic meter and shipped weight.

Air transport

For transport by air, you have two options :

1. The transport by Express company (FEDEX, DHL, TNT, UPS, EMS... etc).

Advantage :

  • Very fast: a shipment from China to France can be done between 2 and 5 days.
  • Easy to read fares (price per kilo or volume, no extra cost or other fixed costs).
  • The least expensive option if the volume of shipment is small.
  • Excellent tracking of goods on the carrier's website where packages are tracked at each step of the shipment.

Drawbacks :

  • Relatively expensive costs beyond a certain weight / volume.
  • Prices very sensitive to the increases of oil price and to currency fluctuations.
  • Greatly increases the import duty (because custom officers take into account the cost of transport in the product price).
class="TextUnderline">Price: is calculated according to the volumetric weight (the heavier of the weight or the volume).

To calculate the volume, the formula is as follows : Length x width x height / 5000
For example a 60 x 35 x 25cm cardboard weighing 15Kg is calculated this way : 63 x 35 x 25 / 5000 = 11,38Kg volume.

Knowing that the cardboard weighs 15Kg, the air carrier will go by 15 kg (the heaviest of the two) to give a price per Kilo.

2. Transportation by air forwarders.

Advantage :

  • Fast Enough: a shipment from China to France can be done between 5 and 10 days.
  • The less expensive option if the volume of shipment is significant enough (not too much).

Drawbacks :

  • Steps to the export of goods from China more complex than an express shipment.
  • May have hidden additional costs (delivery, insurance, airport taxes... etc.).
  • Relatively expensive costs beyond a certain weight / volume.
  • Prices very sensitive to the increases of oil price and to currency fluctuations.
  • Greatly increases the import duty (because custom officers take into account the cost of transport in the product price).
  • Customs controls in Europe much more frequent and longer than those of an express transportation.
class="TextUnderline">Price : is calculated according to the volumetric weight (the heavier of the weight or the volume).

To calculate the volume, the formula is as follows : Length x width x height / 6000
For example a 60 x 35 x 25cm cardboard weighing 15Kg is calculated this way : 63 x 35 x 25 / 6000 = 9,48Kg volume.

Knowing that the cardboard weighs 15Kg, the air carrier will go by 15 kg (the heaviest of the two) to give a price per Kilo.
