Many customers are confused how to choose the shipping method, and how to identify the shipping forwarder?

Some companies quoted low price but fast.  Is it true?Should the buyers believe or not?


Now let us give you some tips to identify them. We are honest and tell the current real situation.

While September and Oct will be the peak time of oversea buyers importing goods from China.

So we guess the shipping fee will go up, and the shipping will be more crowded.

if you want to receive your goods earlier, we advice you take action early.


As you know there are common goods and sensitive goods. Now we focus on batteries only.

1,The battery belongs to sensitive goods (especially the large capacity cells), 

so the terms of transportation are quite strict.Most logistics companies are not allowed to ship batteries directly due to safety issue except UPS.

UPS cost the highest level, and fastest. You need to do custom clearance and pay tax.

for less than 100KG and need the goods in a rush, you can consider UPS or by air.


2,By Train/ocean and delivery to Europe/US by DDP/UPS/truck as default,which take 30~45business days to your door. 

No custom clearance ,no VAT. During the goods on the train or in the ocean, no tracking information updated until they are picked up by DPD/UPS/Truck.

The shipping forwarder  will do custom clearance for the whole container goods together locally  and then DDP/UPS/Truck will deliver the goods to your door. 

So you don't have any tracking number till the custom clearance is done. While the shipping forwarder can track innernally and no worries.

Millions of packages are sent in this way every day.

Due to Covid 19, there maybe have some delay.You need to accept this fact. 

This way is chosen by many people since it is economical and no VAT. The disadvantage is slow and delay some times.

Sometimes the package will get lost ,which seldom happen but it happened before. 

in case the package is missing, some shipping forwarder will afford the loss, some won't.Some sellers will afford it.,others won't.

Thus choosing a reliable shipping forwarder  or seller is very important and don't just choose whose price is a little cheaper.

Penny wise, pound foolish.

Deligreen refunded the missing goods / send replacement.

If you have enough time to wait and want to save cost, this way is a good choice.


3,to EU customers, There is another faster and ecomonical way:

Ship by truck+ delivery to your door. It takes 20~30 business days which is higher price but faster than by train.

Here below is the summerize for the shipping methods as below:

Note:

Please choose the favorite way.We can ship to other countries too, contact us freely.We tell the truth.Honesty comes first.

Please be aware of those cheap but fast ways which is unreliable.

 This way is a bit more expensive than the 2nd one,but faster.

 if you woud rather pay a bit more and get the goods faster, this way is a wise option.


Warm tips:

Sometimes the package will get lost ,which seldom happen but it happened before. 

in case the package is missing, some shipping forwarder will afford the loss, some won't.Some sellers will afford it.,others won't.

Thus choosing a reliable shipping forwarder  or seller is very important and don't just choose whose price is a little cheaper.

Penny wise, pound foolish.

And some sales quoted very low price and promised a fast time ,this is somewhat not reliable.Please be careful.

the shipping situation is universal all over China. No one who own a train or truck by their own.

so the efficiency won't be a big difference. 

Sometimes if you are lucky, we can receive the goods one week faster, or 7~15days slower. 

Hope this article is helpful to your oversea business.
