Challenges Involved In Shipping Goods To China
Shipping goods to China has become less difficult thanks to international shipping companies. Even at that, there are still other challenges. Delivering goods door to door in China is very difficult and also a dull process. For immediate service in a situation where you want to send a documents (ส่งเอกสาร, which is the term in Thai), you have to pay a premium to couriers.
Since China is a big country, getting your parcel to small towns could be time consuming and tracking them would be a difficult task too. Deliveries are quicker in big cities such as shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Tianjin, unlike the rest of the country.
Things To Consider
When choosing a shipping company to send goods to China (ส่งสินค้าไปจีน, which is the term in Thai), you have to bear in mind the total shipping cost. Have a clear figure of how much you have to pay which you are willing to pay. Be wise so you wouldn’t pay more than the value of the package itself.
Furthermore, you have to ensure that the company offers a good tracking system. Since getting your parcel to China requires lots of handovers, regular updates on the status of your shipment is necessary to reduce any chance of loss.
The price of a shipment varies according to various elements which include the weight of the package, the dimensions and form of the parcel, the speed at which you want the package to get to its destination as well as the options which you add to it.
All countries have prohibitions on the import of goods into their country, so you have to make sure you have the full paperwork for your shipment and that it obliges with all the formalities of the customs duties. The description of the contents of the package has to be well detailed, accurate and complete.
