There are 2 charges for shipping from China to your country, one is inland charge, the other is the shipping charge.

1. Inland charge:

Charge from Yiwu city to loading seaport. Ningbo seaport is the nearest seaport to Yiwu, even closer than the Shanghai seaport.

For example, when we collect all cargo in our warehouse facility in Yiwu port, we need to send cargo to the port of Ningbo, simply because the port of Ningbo is the nearest seaport to Yiwu city.

Of course, we also could operate from other cities to other seaports in China, we have warehouse facilities at main coastal seaports in China: Ningbo seaport, Shanghai seaport, Guangzhou seaport, Qingdao seaport, Xiamen seaport.

Under normal circumstances, we will choose the  Ningbo seaport for cargo purchased from the Yiwu market and the Keqiao market.

To sum up, the loading seaport will be confirmed according to cargo location.

2. Shipping charge is based on:

  1. Product details

  2. CBM

  3. Weight

  4. Carton box

  5. Consignee contact information: Full address, mobile, and consignee name.

Please WhatsApp or Email us the above key information, then we are able to quote you an accurate shipping charge.

We will quote the price for DDP (Delivered Duty Paid) after you WhatsApp or Email us the below information:

Product details

  1. CBM

         2. Weight

         3. Carton box

Consignee contact information: Full address, mobile, and consignee name.

DDP is the most convenient way for customers to receive goods. However, the charge is a little higher than shipping by sea or shipping by air. Because DDP includes all charges, even customs clearance charge is pre-paid by us. In other words, you only need to wait at home or warehouse to receive goods. 

In some countries, the local tax might be excluded, because the local government probably requires an importer to pay local tax. Take Malaysia as an example, back in 2016, the GST (Government Service Tax) will have to be paid by importers themselves at around 6%. So, this is up to the destination government.

Air Freight Shipment Cost Calculation Method:

The cost of a shipment can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on an aircraft, rather than the actual weight. This is the volumetric (or dimensional) weight.

For one package shipped through air freight shipment, there are actual weight and volumetric weight (dimensional weight). If the volumetric weight is bigger than the actual weight, the cost will be charged by the volumetric weight. Formula is: height x length x width / 5000

For example, one carton box dimension: 60cm x 50cm x 40cm.It’s volumetric weight is 60x50x40/5000 = 24 kgs.

If the actual weight is 23kgs, the cost will be based on 24 kgs (volumetric weight).
If the actual weight is 25 kgs, the cost will be based on 25 kgs (actual weight).

To summarize: The air freight shipment charge will only apply to heavier one (either volumetric weight or actual weight).
