Sea freight and air freight are the most common shipping methods from China to Argentina. There are many international freight forwarding companies that offer container shipping and air cargo transport services. It’s vital to work with a freight forwarder who understands your needs and always carries out the best tailored shipping solution from China to Argentina.
Sea Freight from China to ArgentinaIf time is not an issue, shipping from China to Argentina by sea is an ideal solution to save cost. Sea freight is the least expensive yet most popular mode when it comes to international transportation, not only because of its low price, but also the capacity to carry large and bulk shipments. Besides, with sea freight, we are able to transport almost all kinds of goods, even those dangerous goods, rejected by railway and airlines. Sea freight is economically and environmentally superior to other forms for cargo shipping services, especially for goods in bulk or equipment of large size, over long distance.
FCL (Full container load): shipping a container filled with goods exclusively for one client from China to Argentina. Generally, we offer FCL shipping service to Argentina with 20ft container and 40ft container (20GP, 40GP and 40HQ). FCL is more cost efficient.
LCL (Less than container load): Sharing a container with other clients who have cargo to the same destination, at the same time. Naturally, due to extra work (consolidation, de-consolidation, warehousing, paperwork, etc.), the final cost on each unit is higher than FCL, and shipping takes longer. LCL is a good choice for small business to start with. If your cargo can’t fill an entire container, our consolidation (LCL shipping) service from China to Argentina is always available.
FCL and LCL shipments are common, if you are shipping large, heavy project cargo from China to Argentina, we’d recommend flat rack or open top container solution.
Reefer containers: for temperature-sensitive products
Breakbulk: for large and bulk shipment
RO-RO: for vehicles and wheeled cargo
