Sea Freight from China to RomaniaIf you are seeking the least expensive way of shipping from China to Romania, sea freight is the solution you should opt for. Maybe to your supply chain, cost control is more important than speed. Sea shipping carriers are using large vessel to transport cargoes, mainly containers, in bulk, thus reducing shipping cost.
More than 90% of the world’s total shipments are being carried out by sea. Low shipping cost is only one of the reasons that contribute to its high popularity. Sea freight is capable of handling almost every type of goods, including dangerous goods, and large & heavy cargo, when other modes of transportations are not feasible.
While use sea freight for its advantages, you have to accept its low speed. Sea shipping from China to Romania takes 30-40 days. Make sure you have enough goods in stock by planning purchase in advance.
FCL (Full container load): shipping a container filled with goods exclusively for one client from China to Romania. FCL is more cost efficient than LCL.
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.
FCL and LCL are the most regular sea shipments we are seeing. We do far more than this.
