Factors to Consider When Choosing the Suitable Shipping Method
When you choose a shipping method, you have to consider it from several angles and ultimately choose the one that best suits your needs.
You can make your choice based on several factors.
- Product and Carrying Capacity
If you buy a large and heavy product, then you can only choose sea or rail transportation.
If the product you buy is itself of great value and small in size, then air freight is the safer way.
- Time requirement
If you need the goods urgently, then air freight is the fastest way to transport.
If you are not very demanding about the transportation time, you can usually choose to ship the cargo by sea container to a port near the destination, and then transport it by local rail or truck afterwards.
- Shipping Cost
Air freight is usually the most expensive. Most importers will choose sea freight, which is more suitable price.
The volume and weight of the goods will determine the shipping costs. Then, in addition to the product itself, the packaging of the goods becomes crucial to the shipping costs. You need to ask the supplier to optimize the packaging to reduce the volume of the package and thus reduce the cost. If the product has a lot of space left in the package, you will pay a lot more for it.
Finding the right freight forwarder
Most importers use Chinese freight forwarders to manage their shipments as well as to take care of the shipment. You need to find a reliable freight forwarder and you must carefully consider their qualifications before working together.
A reputable freight forwarder can help importers deal with all kinds of complex logistics and transportation problems, conduct reasonable route analysis, and choose the best route and the best way to help you reduce transportation costs.
Compare Shipping Costs
Freight forwarders often use discounts in order to gain customers. You can compare several freight forwarders’ offers. However, you need to pay attention to those hidden costs. Some freight forwarders may use discounts on the surface to attract you to choose them, but then they will incur many other costs. So, if you see a much cheaper offer than others, please be extra careful.
