Dropshipping. Cargo from China.
Today most of all goods sold around the world are produced in China.
This country is rightfully referred to as the “world’s factory”.
The big modern factories, plants and “artisanal” individual proceedings produce millon tons of goods for export.
The World Bank estimates that container traffic of China is worth more than 200 milllion TEU per year and 62% of it is consolidated cargos.
The highest level of exports → The largest volume of goods traffic→ The highest number of Cargo companies → It’s hard to choose a reliable transport operator with better pricing.

How to choose Cargo-Company
A large amount of Cargo companies operates in both China and importing countries. This market is large though yet not sufficiently clear for importer. The services provided by Cargo companies are the same but methods, characteristics and reliability differ.
The characteristics of carriers that you need to pay attention to when entering into a partnership agreement are listed below:
|Office in China
||Cargo above all is Chinese business. If company does not have an office in China, it could be an intermediary so rates would be higher and quality lower.||
|Warehouse in China
||Warehouse is essential link in chain of traffic. Liable company would have at least one or more warehouses in China||
|Quantity of shipments||Cargo Company uploads and sends containers. The quantity of shipments per month is an important characteristic of transporter||If there 1 – 3 shipments per month cargo may be stuck due to insufficient number for container upload.|
||What are the ways and methods providing cargo safety?||Shipment may be lost:
|Warehouse in importer country
||Consolidated goods should be accepted, checked and sorted somewhere upon arrival||Availability of warehouse is significant if you can’t upload whole container (you have LTL – less than truck)
||Cargo delivery inside importer country||After customs procedures shipment should be delivered immediately. The sooner shipped the faster sold.
