The only way to do ocean freight now is through container brokers. you can
buy part of the container or the whole thing. normally a 1 cubic meter minimum requirement.
depends on what kind of service you want, the price will be different.
ocean freight charges by size. weight is around 1000 lbs max per cbm.
normally, the broker's price is a door to port service price, which means
from your front door to the port in China, then a local agent in China will
take over and charge you local rates in China. it is cheaper this way. most
door to door services are charged base on US rates. as we all know, labor
stuff is so cheap in China. some of the charges you may see at the port in
China are: container service fee, dock fee, custom brokerage fee and etc.
the good thing with container broker is they will be able to provide you
with a booking number for your shipment, with this number, you can find out
what ship the container is on, and what container your stuff is in if you
are sharing a container.
Fedex and UPS don't have lose cargo services directly to end customer, they
only sell whole containers. the best way is to find a broker.
here is a broker's phone number I used before: 301-610-0479, ask for Albert
Wang. second line 301-610-6049. u can also look up information on brokers in
chinese news papers.
you can call this guy to get some rate quotes. one recommendation, ocean
freight's 1 cubic meter is much bigger than our regular 1 cubic meter. if
you can find some friends to share the space with you, it's the best way.
also, time wise, it normally take about 5 weeks to reach major ports in
China after shipment leaves the ports here. sometimes slower and sometimes
