      How to Ship From China to Canada by Sea Freight

      ZGGShip offers you a broad portfolio of sea freight forwarding solutions that can satisfy your shipping needs. Regardless of whether you want to rent an entire shipping container or share it with other importers, our team has the solution for that. Ship your goods from China to Canada today with our sea freight services.

      Full Container Load (FCL)

      Full container load (FCL) shipping refers to the type of sea freight where you will be renting an entire container. A whole 20-foot or 40-foot container grants you enough space and enhanced safety for your goods.

      Out of Gauge (OOG)

      Out-of-gauge (OOG) cargo refers to those items and goods that do not fit inside a container. Using OOG, you can ship products like aircraft parts, huge machines, and other abnormally shaped indivisible loads (AILs).

      Less than Container Load (LCL)

      Using less than container load (LCL) shipping is usually one of the best ways you can save money on shipping. Pay only for the space that your cargo consumes, whether it’s palletized or loose cargo.


      When shipping wheeled products, such as trucks, cars, and other types, using roll-on/roll-off shipping is your best choice. Depending on the type of wheeled cargo you wish to ship, you may use pure car carriers (PCCs), pure truck carriers (PTCs), and others.

      Bulk Cargo

      If you plan to ship goods unpackaged and loose, such as oil, coal, and other similar products, we have bulk cargo as the most suitable sea freight service type that we can provide you with.

      Reefer Container

      Reefer containers use refrigeration technology suitable to keep goods sensitive to temperature and are perishable in tip-top condition. Maintain the integrity of your goods from China to Canada using a reefer container.

      LCL Shipping from China to Canada

      You don’t really need to pay for an entire shipping container unless you have a load of similar worth. Less than a container load (LCL) shipping is another method you can ship your goods to Canada. By LCL, you will only be paying for the amount of space that your cargo took, while the rest of the space would be rented by other shippers who also use LCL.

      Consider using LCL shipping if you have a shipment volume under 13 CBM. This is more economical than renting an entire container for a relatively low cargo volume. Another reason to ship via LCL is your time requirements. When shipping during peak times, LCL spaces are faster to secure than FCL.

      Like FCL, there are many types of LCL cargo: palletized, loose, etc. Palletized cargo simply refers to cargo secured using pallets. Using pallets helps prevent misrouting and loss of products. Another popular way to ship LCL is loose cargo, which is a lot less secure than palletized LCL.


      FCL Shipping from China to Canada

      When shipping via FCL, you are paying for the entire container space. By doing this, you can use an entire container to ship your cargo only, translating to more control and safety over your products. This is because you will be responsible for the loading and unloading of your packages.

      Some reasons you would want to ship via FCL include the safety and handling of your goods, your shipment load, and your shipping time requirements. Shipments over 14 CBM (or ten standard pallets) are suitable to be shipped through FCL. Unlike LCL, FCL shipments require no consolidation, so it also allows for timely shipments.

      Depending on your cargo load, you may ship using either a 20-foot, 40-foot, or 40-foot high cube shipping container, providing you with freight spaces spanning 10 to 25 European pallets. FCL may be done door-to-port, port-to-door, port-to-port, or door-to-door depending on your shipment deal.

          How Much Does Sea Freight Cost to Ship from China to Canada?

          There are many things that you should consider when calculating your shipping costs from China to the United Kingdom. These may cover the following considerations:

          • Cargo volume
