Mixed Container Service
Our Mixed Container Service leaves every 4-8weeks from China. You just need to send us Proforma Invoice and Purchase Contract with Space Volume (CBM) and Weight (Kgs) details we shall allocate space for you in our next available container.
How does it Work?
Effectively, we combine small orders given by our clients into one container and pass on the cost saving to them.
This allows you to ship your goods at the same price to that of importing full container load.
Major advantages of mixed containers are:
- Cost Savings
- Higher Safety of goods as they are carefully loaded in container unlike in LCL.
- Price Bargain. When ordering goods the factory will offer you 2 prices EXW and FOB. FOB price factors all the expenses such as transportation to the port, customs clearance for their exports, and other documentation charges. However, buying with EXW terms plus the delivery to our warehouse will be much lesser than the FOB price.
