How do We Deliver Paper Packaging Box to You By Sea?

Shipping by sea from different parts of the world is considered quite a hassle by most product packaging buyers.

Well, think of it as a walk in the park. It should not be a hassle at all when you place an order of packaging box in China, but then again, it is quite a challenge. Sea shipping has been around for a long time.

Therefore, it is quite a reputable and functional transportation system that operates orderly. What you need is to be familiar with what actually happens when your product is shipped via the sea.

FCL and LCL Shipping

Shipping does not preclude you from importing smaller quantities from us. If you only order our mini order, like 1000pcs packaging boxes,then LCL (Less Container Load) shipping is the right choice. It makes a lot of sense to have your goods delivered to you via freight.

However, If you order large quantity of packaging boxes from us, we will deliver them to you via full container load (FCL). If, on the other hand, you want a sizable number, less container load makes a lot of sense. LCL is a shared freight and includes products from multiple buyers.

When will your product reach you?

The lead-time varies based on the travel distance. It takes between 1 week and 40 days depending on the port of destination. Pls see as below:
