Shipping Methods

Incoterms

In order to regulate international trading action and protect the interest of the trade parties, the International Chamber of Commerce stipulated the International Commercial Terms (Incoterms). The Incoterms rules are accepted by governments, legal authorities and practitioners worldwide for the interpretation of most commonly used terms in international trade. They are intended to reduce or remove altogether uncertainties arising from different interpretation of the rules in different countries. First published in 1936, the Incoterms rules have been periodically updated, with the eighth version—Incoterms 2010—having been published on January 1, 2011.

Sea shipping

This is the premier option that we adopt for international delivery. The sea shipping is the most economical way to deliver a product. It can reach to the most widely location, almost every corner of the world.

Air cargo

For urgent order and delivery, freight cargo is an option for delivery. This delivery might not be door-to-door delivery service (contact delivery company for more detail). The delivery destination can be restricted. The air delivery cost might be triple or quadplex than that of ocean shipping (contact delivery company for real-time quotation of the delivery cost).

Please be noted that some of our product, e.g. refrigeration equipment, needs to be inspected before loading into airplane. The gas/refrigerant in compressor needs to be pumped out therefore the machine is in a vacuumized state. In that way, you will need to charge refrigerant when you get the machine. And for motor or some other parts, they may need to get magnetic inspection before loading.

The global air cargo delivery may take 3–7 days.

Express Delivery (UPS/FedEx/DHL)

The fastest way to deliver goods. The delivery range can be most countries (not all countries). The delivery cost can be much higher than other delivery methods. And only small package is accepted. This express delivery is the door-to-door service. But be noted that the buyer still needs to pay import taxes and duties.

The global express delivery takes 1–5 days.

Inland Transportation

This delivery mainly carried out by road and railway, not commonly utilize for international trading, to a specific region and people. Like in China, we may deliver our machines to some neighboring countries, such as Mongolia, some part of Russia, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Myanmar, Vietnam and some other middle Asian countries. The delivery duration can be very long because of inland transfer. And the transportation cost for this can be unreasonably high. Please consult us for more detail.
