What are the advantages that you will get when you go for FCL shipping?

1.It is easier to track FCL directly through the shipping company’s website. That way, you can predict its arrival with accuracy.
2.Under FCL, your items will be safer. FCL means that your items will not be mixed with other shipments. There will be less risk of your cargo being damaged or getting lost since fewer people will be handling it.
3.FCL can be processed faster because your shipment will be the only one that will be loaded into a container. Under LCL, the shipment will be consolidated with others first.
4.As mentioned earlier, FCL is cheaper when the cost is broken down per unit.
These are the advantages of FCL shipping but remember that LCL is better when you are shipment is a small one. As your business progresses and your shipment grows bigger, then FCL may become the more cost-effective option for you.

Express Shipping

When you choose express shipping from China, you should allow for three days. That can be faster if the supplier will drop off the items at a depot. There are even faster services than this but those are very expensive.

Air Freight

 Air freight shipping would take around 8-10 days. Now, you might be wondering as to why express shipping is faster than air freight shipping while both would use air transport in shipping your cargo.

Sea Freight

Door-to-door shipment from China to the USA would take 30 to 40 days. Most of that time is taken up by the actual transit of the ship through the ocean.

Custom delays and bad weather can also have an impact on sea freight. So, do not expect to get your shipment right away if you are shipping through sea freight.
