Standard Ocean Freight

Need the most cost-effective mode when shipping from China to the US, UK, or EU? Ship via standard full container load (FCL) or less than a container load (LCL). With both FCL and LCL shipments, you have the option of floor loading cargo or shipping by pallets.

Fast Ocean Freight

Looking for a faster, but still economical shipping mode for frequent replenishment? Ship via our expedited ocean freight for faster transit time compared to Standard Ocean, while saving costs compared to air freight.

Logistics & Customs Clearance

International shipping can be tricky. We provide customs brokers to expedite customs clearance, along with optional logistics services such as pick-up, palletization, labeling, and cargo insurance.
Amazon Global Logistics is a really price competitive and convenient program. We plan to switch 95% of our shipments to AGL as it's so convenient and safe.

Ship the right volume for your business needs

Leverage the advantages of our LCL and FCL ocean freight container shipping options. Utilize a cost-effective LCL container option when you ship smaller cargo, or an FCL container when you need to ship larger inventory volumes.

Less than container load

With Amazon Own Consolidation (AOC), Amazon manages the consolidation of your LCL shipment with other Amazon Sellers who are shipping via LCL. Using AOC, your shipment is consolidated into Amazon-only containers to ship direct to fulfillment centers, saving time at the destination. Plus, by sharing container space, you can ship the right amount of inventory for customer demand, while inbounding directly into Amazon without the need to wait to fill an entire container.

Full container load

Maximize space and optimize your costs with an FCL container shipping option, and ship a larger volume of goods. With FCL, you pay for the entire container, not only the space you occupy, allowing you to ship a wider variety of cargo types and sizes. FCL allows you to take advantage of efficient transit times with less handling compared to LCL shipments.
