Now that you've made your products, your next concern is how to ship them from China to USA. Of course, there are many options as to how to do this. What you need to know is the most efficient and cost-effective way.


In this article, you'll learn about the options available to you, so you can find the best way to make the most of your money and effort.

 An introduction to air transportation shipping from China to USA

You have many options when shipping from China to USA. The main three are:

Air freight

Sea Shipping

The express transport


Below we will give a detailed description of air transportation from China to USA.

By choosing air freight when shipping from China to USA, you can ship products from the factory to your warehouse, or anywhere you want in a matter of days.

Currently, only 5% of the world's goods are transported by air, but 30% of their value. This means that more valuable items are transported by air.

If your product is valuable or time is of the essence to you, then shipping by air will be your best option.

You should realize by now that the thing about air freight is that it is much more expensive. But the speed with which your goods arrive in USA may be more important. The strategy used by some merchants, especially start-up Amazon sellers, is to have a small percentage of their goods, say 5 to 10 percent, shipped by air and the rest shipped by sea. That way, their stores can have a small number of items available even if the rest is in transit.


China Air Freight Process

Air freight from China is very simple, you only need to take the least action. This is a simplified process:


You get the services of the shipping company.

You provide details of the shipment to the shipping company, including your supplier.

The goods are delivered to the airport according to the arrangement with the supplier.

The shipping company will be responsible for export customs clearance.

The cargo was loaded onto the plane and then flown to an airport in USA.

The goods were unloaded and passed through customs.

The goods are then shipped to the consignee's address and taxes and customs charges are paid.

Your vendor can handle all of this for you, but it is highly recommended that you do this yourself.

Another suggestion is that you get the services of an air freight agent. A freight forwarder specializes in organizing air freight. You should purchase a device located in USA for more support in monitoring your shipment.
