01 Nov Shipping from China to US
As a private label amazon seller, in most cases, you will source your products in China.
It doesn’t matter if you source your products yourself, or with a sourcing agent, at the end of production, you will need to arrange shipping from China to US.
Shipping from China to US comes with more than few options, from air express, via air freight and to ocean shipments.
Most of the sellers starting shipments from China to USA, start with air shipments, since they are the easiest to handle: no paper work, no bonds, no hard customs clearance process, and much less headache than air shipments.
Another issue is that in most cases, sellers start with small quantity, like 300, 500 units, and the difference between air and ocean is not so big when the volume is not too high.
And of course, in many cases, the seller want to goods to arrive quickly, so he can start push sales and return his investment.
What most sellers don’t know when searching options to ship from china to USA, is they can combine the the benefits of air and ocean, getting all the positive points from all options.
