If you are into import and export business, keep reading this guide into shipping from China to Venezuela, which include shipping method, transit time, cost, what is required and how to decide the best way to ship from China, etc. Hopefully we could be the one freight forwarder you use for your next China-Venezuela shipment.
The two main options are sea freight and air freight to move your cargo from China to Venezuela. There are many international freight forwarding companies that offer container shipping and air cargo transport services, but we can do more. It’s vital to work with a freight forwarder who understands your needs and always carries out the best tailored shipping solution from China to Venezuela.
Sea Freight from China to VenezuelaSea freight is an ideal choice if you are shipping goods from China to Venezuela on a budget. Compared to other modes of transportations, sea freight is the least expensive one, and understandably the slowest. It’s also superior for shipping cargo over long distance, especially for goods in bulk or equipment of large size. In most cases, goods will be shipped in containers with container ships, and sometimes with bulk cargo ships or RO-RO ships, tankers, etc. Shipping by sea is slow, you’ll have to allow for 30-40 days for a sea shipment from China to arrive in Venezuela.
FCL and LCL are the most common sea shipments we’ve been handling from China to Venezuela.
FCL (Full container load): shipping a container filled with goods exclusively for one client from China to Venezuela. Generally, we offer FCL shipping service to Venezuela with 20ft container and 40ft container (20GP, 40GP and 40HQ). FCL is more cost efficient.
LCL (Less than container load): Sharing a container with other clients who have cargo to the same destination, at the same time. If your cargo can’t fill an entire container, our consolidation (LCL shipping) service from China to Venezuela is always available. Naturally, due to extra work (consolidation, de-consolidation, warehousing, paperwork, etc.), the final cost on each unit is higher than FCL, and shipping takes longer. LCL is a good choice for small business to start with.
We’ll recommend flat rack or open top container solution if you are shipping large, heavy project cargo from China to Venezuela. Reefer container for temperature-sensitive products; Breakbulk for large and bulk shipment; RO-RO: for vehicles and wheeled cargo.
