Let's talk about ocean freight logistics solutions.

Sea Shipping from China to Canada

The world of global logistics is complex – customs, freight rates and import regulations vary from country to country. It doesn't matter whether you send goods on a regular basis or just occasionally: We can answer any questions you may have and handle your transport needs. We are your reliable logistics partner providing you with a first-class service.
Canada has its own federal department responsible for these services. Transport Canada is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of transportation programs. In addition, the Canada Border Services Agency is responsible for regulatory enforcement. These regulations affect many international freight forwarders. For these government services, the main concern is international security.

CIFFA (Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association) was founded in 1948. It protects and supports the status, interests and character of foreign-owned freight forwarders. They do this by establishing uniform trade regulations and practices. In addition, CIFFA has an educational role, offering certification programs for freight forwarders.

The port where we started:
Port Name: Shenzhen
Port code: CNSZX
 
Port Name: Guangzhou
Port code: CNCAN
 
Port Name: Hongkong
Port code: CNHKG
 
Port Name: Shanghai
Port code: CNSHA

Port Name: Ningbo
Port code: CNNGB
CFR
Cost and Freight specify that the seller will make all the arrangements to deliver the goods to the buyer and will pay for the freight costs. The seller also has to provide the buyer with all the necessary documents for customs clearance at the port of destination.

CIF
CIF stands for Cost, Insurance, and Freight. Under CIF, all shipping expense is paid for by the seller, including insurance cover.

DDP
Duty Paid Delivery requires the seller to deliver the goods to an agreed location. The seller bears responsibility for the item until it gets to that final location. The seller also covers all the costs involved.

DDU
Under Delivered Duty Unpaid, the freight cost and import duty is the responsibility of the buyer and not the seller. The buyer nears responsibility for the items as soon as they are delivered by the seller to an agreed location.

For shipments from China to Canada, we provide some common incoterms


EXW (EX Works)
Under EXW, the seller is under the obligation to make the goods available at a predetermined location designated by the buyer. Once the goods arrive at the location set by the buyer, the safety of the goods becomes the sole responsibility of the buyer as the seller will have honored the terms of the contract.

FOB
FOB stands for Free On Board. Under this arrangement, the seller retains all the risks until the goods reach the final destination of the buyer. Once it does, the seller is free from any further obligation.

Type of shipment - LCL / FCL
 

Less-than-Container Load (LCL)
If your cargo is small and less than 15 CBM in volume, a freight forwarder will help you ship your cargo via LCL. This allows importers to ship smaller quantities of cargo that are not large enough to make a full container load a viable option. This means that your cargo is combined with other shipments from the same destination.

When LCL shipments arrive at the port, they can be delivered by truck or courier because of their small size and relative flexibility. lCL uses CBM (cubic meters) as the unit of measure to calculate freight rates.

Full Container Load (FCL)
FCL means that your cargo is large enough to fit into at least one container. In this case, the freight rate is calculated on a full container basis. FCL shipments will be loaded and sealed by your supplier at origin and then shipped to your final destination.

How Long Does Sea Freight Take from China to Canada?

Shipping from China to Canada can take between 14-37 days.

How long your shipment will take depends on a number of factors, including
- the port of origin in China.
- Any export requirements in China
- Whether you have an FCL or LCL shipment
- The port of destination in Canada.
- Any import requirements and tariffs in Canada
- and whether your shipment is door-to-door port-to-port
That said, we've created a handy chart to give you a general idea of how long it will take to ship your goods by sea between China and Canada.
ETDs and ETAs are subject to change at any time and they can never be guaranteed by your sea carrier, and it can take up to 7 days for your cargo to be loaded at the loading port. Sea transportation is a slow mode of transportation, and you need to do your planning in advance and have generous margins for the possible delays. Besides, Chinese manufacturers don't stock any products; the products are made to order. In other words, if you need your goods to be ready for the Christmas season, you should plan ahead and place your order in August or earlier. We would recommend that you should place an order with at least 3 months in advance.

Do you have any questions about consolidating your goods or would you like a quote for your FCL Shipping?

Sea shipping from China to Canada

Ocean freight is the primary mode of transportation for global import and export operations. The advantages of low prices, large volume loads, and full container load (FCL) or consolidation load (LCL) options make ocean freight the preferred choice for most Canadian importers.

Ocean freight, like any other mode of transportation, has its pros and cons - you can ship large volumes at once, but it can take a long time for the goods to reach their destination. Another advantage is the diversity of goods you can ship. All this makes sea freight the most popular and most used mode of transportation.

Planning ahead and allowing enough time for the entire shipping process will make ocean freight your first choice. Just like air or ground shipping, you must handle all the paperwork involved in the shipping process, including customs clearance and delivery of the goods until they arrive at your warehouse or facility. Door-to-door service is very popular in the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia, where you simply pay the freight and wait for your goods to arrive at your address.

Ocean freight is an economical way to ship and the best way to handle large shipments.

Shipping Ports in China
Often, your supplier or freight forwarder will tell you which port is the best port to consider when exporting goods from China to Canada. They base this on your location, transit time, cost, ease of customs clearance, and any other agreements you have made with them. However, if you want to choose your own port, you should consider these essential elements that contribute to a successful shipment: cost, location, and transit time.

Remember, however, that your supplier's geographical location does not need much attention, because no matter where he is in China, your shipment will not be too far from one of the following ports.
These are the largest and most productive ports in the world, ready to move your cargo from China to Canada.

Port of Shanghai (port code: CNSHA) - the busiest port in the world; it opened for international trade in 1842, but dates back to the 6th century, with 42 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) of trade in 2018.

Port of Ningbo (port code: CNNGB) - Over 26 million TEUs shipped in 2018, with access to more than 600 ports in more than 100 countries.

Port of Shenzhen (port code: CNSZX) - Over 27 million TEUs shipped in 2018, including multiple port terminals in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.

Other ports include Tianjin Port, Qingdao Port, Xiamen Port, Hong Kong Port, and Guangzhou Port.

Major shipping ports in Canada
These are the major ports for imports to Canada.

- Port of Vancouver (Port Code: CAVAN) - the largest and busiest port in Canada
- Port of Montreal (port code: CAMTR)
- Port of Prince Rupert (port code: CAPRR)
- Port of Saint John (Port Code: CASJB)
- Halifax Port Authority/Port of Halifax (Port Code: CAHAL)
- Port of Nanaimo (Port Code: CANNO)
- Port of Toronto (Port Code: CATOR)

Cost is usually the main deciding factor for most businesses, and different logistics methods can make a big difference in terms of capital and transit time. Therefore, choosing the most cost effective option is the key to success.
 
Shipping route from China to Canada

There are two main shipping routes vessels all through to connect Canada from China. They are the Pacific route and the Atlantic route. For the Pacific route, the vessel sets sail from any of the seaports from the East of China and sails off the coast of Japan to connect the West of Canada and the US.

As for the Atlantic route, the vessel will sail through the South China Sea to connect the Indian Ocean. From the Indian Ocean, it will either sail for the Mediterranean Sea through the Arabian Peninsula to connect Europe or its sails for the Cape of Good Hope to the South of Africa. Either of these two routes can be taken to connect the Atlantic Ocean. From the Atlantic, the voyage will be concluded when the ship arrives on the East Coast of Canada.

Ocean Freight Process

Shipping by sea from China to Canada is a different process than any other system. After selecting the type of shipping based on shipping cost and time, you should go through the process to understand how your goods will be delivered to you or your target audience. The ocean freight process is generally the same, but may vary depending on your situation and choices. Each of these processes is important, and many people are involved in their planning and execution. So don't worry about getting your shipments safely to STU Supply Chain.

To familiarize you with the process, we offer 7 items that products need to go through to reach their target audience.

Step 1. Export to sea component.
The first action involves moving the shipment of the product from the shipper to the freight forwarder's premises. The product is usually shipped by sea, rail, air, or a combination of these modes.

Step 2. Clearance of the exported goods.
This process is an official regulation and involves the submission of original and required documents to the appropriate officials.

Step 3. Origin processing.
This process covers all physical handling, inspection and packaging of the goods; at the supplier's warehouse. This is coordinated by the shipping agent.

Step 4. Ocean freight.
This process corresponds to the schedule required for shipment, and the freight forwarder arranges the shipping route for transport. This step includes not only transportation costs from port to port, but also overcharges such as currency adjustment factors, exchange rates, etc.

Step 5. Customs clearance of imported products.
This process can start even before the arrival of the goods. This clearance is provided by the customs broker and is specified by the consignee.

Step 6. Destination.
This involves the transportation and unloading of the goods from the port to the warehouse of destination.

Step 7. Product Delivery.
The final process is the physical delivery of the goods to the consignee and finally to the consumer.
