How Much The Cost of Sea Freight China to USA

How Much The Cost of Sea Freight China to USA

Sea freight prices for FCL cargo from China to the United States typically run from $3,000 to $5,500 for a 20-foot container. A 40-foot container can cost anywhere from $4,500 to $10,000.

LCL prices range as well. If you are shipping from Ningbo to the US, LCL shipping would cost about $700. If you are shipping from Shanghai, the price can go up to $950. Typically, LCL shipments are priced per CBM, so we would need to know that before we can provide you with an accurate estimate.

Furthermore, sea freight prices depend on the port of arrival. For instance, shipping to New York is often less expensive than shipping to Los Angeles, while shipping to Dallas is even more expensive.

How Long Does Sea Freight China to USA Take

On average, port-to-port shipping from China to United States takes 14-42 days, while door-to-door freight would take about 50 days. Shipping to the West Coast of the United States takes 14-18 days. The journey to the US East Coast takes 25-50 days.

Moreover, the distance matters. For example, shipping from Shanghai to Long Beach takes 15 days, while shipping from Tianjin to Houston takes about 40 days.

Note that FCL shipping takes less time than LCL shipping, because LCL freight requires extra time for item consolidation.

Whatever your specialty—industrial, agricultural, machinery, liquid bulk, etc—Bacolod will arrange the best sea freight option for you.

FCL Shipping from China to the USA

The term “full container load” (FCL) refers to cargo that can fill a whole container. A full container is assigned to a single consignee in this marine freight service. FCL freight from China to Bacolod is a simple and cost-effective way to import goods to the USA. We have a variety of container sizes available, including 20ft, 40ft, 45ft, and 45HQ. We also offer many types of special containers like flat rack and reefer.

LCL Shipping from China to the USA

LCL (less than container load) shipping from China is used when cargo does not fill a normal FCL container. In this container, the cargo is shared with the cargo of other importers besides you. This is an excellent alternative for small firms looking to outsource to Chinese vendors. Bacolod offer all necessary services, such as consolidation, to provide excellent LCL sea freight for your company.
