Sea Freight from China to Peru

Sea freight, shipping from China to Peru by seaIf you are looking for the cheapest way of shipping from China to Peru, sea freight is the solution. More than 90% of the world’s total cargo is being shipped by sea every year, mainly thanks to its affordable shipping cost. Compared to other forms of shipping services, sea freight is superior especially when shipping goods in bulk or cargo of large size, over long distance. In most cases, goods will be shipped in containers with container ships, and sometimes with bulk cargo ship, RO-RO ships and tankers. Another advantage of sea freight is, it accepts almost all types of cargo.
FCL (Full container load): shipping a container filled with goods exclusively for one client from China to Peru. Generally, we offer FCL shipping service to Peru 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 Peru is always available.

Besides regular FCL and LCL shipments, if you are shipping large, heavy cargo from China to Peru, we’d recommend flat rack or open top container solution. And for temperature-sensitive shipments, we can provide reefer containers
