CHINA-US shipping in the face of COVID 19

Posted by Kingdavid Ozobodo on

The COVID 19 pandemic crippled economic activities and global transportation. Inasmuch as activities have began to return to normal, the impact of the pandemic which is still spreading, on global trade and transportation systems is not far fetched.

Manufacturing activities in China have already commenced and trade is gradually bouncing back but importers to the US and even Chinese manufacturers will face hitches because of reduced demand and possible delays in ports and warehouses in the US.

Freight cost and transit time are two critical factors that every importer considers. The two major means of shipping goods are the air and sea freight.

Generally, the air freight is usually faster although more expensive than the sea freight which could take between 30-40 days from China.

Express air freights from China to US takes about just 3 days while standard air freights take up to between 8-10 days.

Obviously the speed of delivery of your products depend on the means of shipping which also depends on the amount you pay. So the more you budget for shipping, the faster you get your product.

In the face of the pandemic, you should expect to pay higher rates and experience longer delivery times because restrictions on air travel both into and within the US have dramatically reduced air freight capacity, leaving space tight and prices volatile.
