Packaging for shipping
Sample Duty in China
According to China Customs Regulations, duty will be collected if the value of the goods is over USD$50. However, customs taxes are not solely determined by the value of the goods. Shipping fees and weight of the goods is taken into account in the final value of the goods subject to taxation.
Weight Shipping Notes
Weight is taken into account in shipping. As the maximum loads in both the 20' container and 40' containers are similar, heavy materials such as construction goods are usually loaded into the smaller container. Furthermore, it is difficult to gain price benefits for the shipment of heavy materials, so it is advised that arrangements for shipping are made in advance.
Rates usually fluctuate with the seasons, and traffic is crowded before Christmas and other holidays. Arranging shipments in advance and avoid the Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) will allow for benefits in price.
