How to Ship from China to USA by Sea Freight
ZGGShip can bring your goods from China to the United States in a variety of sea freight services according to your requirements. Our broad services portfolio allows you to achieve what you need for your shipments in terms of freight space, type of goods to ship, and more. Regardless of your shipping needs, we can satisfy you.
Full Container Load (FCL)
When using full container load (FCL) shipping, an entire container will be yours to use for your shipment. Ensure sufficient freight space and guaranteed safety for your cargo with either a 20-foot or 40-foot container.
Out of Gauge (OOG)
Cargos that do not fit inside a container are classified as out-of-gauge (OOG). If you want to ship abnormally-shaped indivisible loads (AILs), huge machinery, aircraft components, and more, OOG shipments would be right for you.
Less than Container Load (LCL)
If you want to save money on shipping, less than container load (LCL) freight would be one of your best options. When using this type of sea freight, you only pay for the amount of space that your packages take.
Shipping wheeled cargo like trucks and other kinds of vehicles require roll-on/roll-off (RORO) ships. Move your vehicles using either pure car carriers (PCCs), pure truck carriers (PTCs), or other types of RORO carriers.
Unpackaged and loose cargo like coal, oil, and similar commodities are referred to as bulk cargo. If you want to ship such goods, our team can provide you with suitable sea freight solutions.
If you are shipping temperature-sensitive products, shipping via a reefer container would be your best choice. Move perishable goods like fruits and vegetables in tip-top condition from China to the USA.
LCL Shipping from China to USA
Renting an entire shipping container is not really necessary if your cargo does not need that much space. A more economical way you can move your goods is less than container load (LCL) shipping. Be financially accountable only for the space that your cargo takes using LCL.
LCL shipments are suitable for cargo loads not going beyond 13 CBM. Keep in mind that LCL freight requires consolidation, as the container space is shared with other importers who also chose LCL. While this process takes some time to accomplish, LCL freight spaces are easier to book than that of FCL, which may also grant you quicker shipments.
You can ship your LCL freight either palletized or loose. Using palletized cargo helps prevent unwanted situations like lost or misrouted shipments as your packages are secured using pallets. Loose cargo, on the other hand, is also a popular LCL shipping method, albeit less safe than palletized cargo.
FCL Shipping from China to USA
FCL shipments grant you an entire shipping container for your cargo, regardless of whether you fill in the whole space or not. As the container will not be shared with other shippers, you can ensure proper handling of your goods with you being responsible for their loading and unloading.
Note that FCL shipments require you to bear the fees for renting an entire container. While FCL may be less economical than LCL shipping, it may be the safer and more cost-effective option when certain conditions are met.
You want to use FCL for shipments involving more than 10 standard pallets (14 CBM). FCL is also faster because the goods do not need consolidation, making it suitable for tighter shipping schedules.
Popular FCL freight involves using 20-foot, 40-foot, and 40-foot high cube shipping containers, translating to roughly 10-25 European pallets. You can also ship door-to-door, door-to-port, port-to-port, or port-to-door via FCL with us.

Tips for Getting the Best Sea Freight Quote from China to USA
Working with a freight forwarder is key to enjoying the best sea freight quotes on the market from China to the United States. ZGGShip is well-connected with the best in the industry, and we can provide you with the valuable freight deals you need.
#1 Look for a good forwarder
Freight forwarders act as middlemen between you and the logistics companies that deliver your goods. Having a freight forwarder translates to enjoying affordable freight rates that they can negotiate for you, aside from avoiding money-losing violations that you need to settle.
Your forwarder will be responsible for your paperwork, but it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to pay attention to your papers. Having a good grasp of your documents and bills would help you look out for unreasonable surcharges you need not pay.
Importers tend to use too much packaging on their goods, translating to higher costs on both the packaging service and the forwarding process. More packaging means more weight and size, so keeping it at a minimum would be money-saving.

How Long Does Sea Freight Take to Ship from China to USA?

Keep in mind that the farther you want to ship your goods, the longer they will take to arrive at their destination. It is faster to ship to the western parts of the USA than its middle or eastern regions.
