Overview - Shipping from China to Europe

Imports from China to Europe have grown steadily in recent years. China is now the EU's largest supplier of manufactured goods and is the EU's main trading partner. In 2019, imports from China amounted to 362 billion euros (about 1 billion euros per day.) and exports amounted to 198 billion euros.


Therefore, EU ports are vital to the economies of member states, as they are the gateway through which 74% of imported goods enter the country's territory. Today, there are more than 1,200 commercial seaports along the EU coast, through which approximately 4 billion tons of cargo pass through each year.


Despite the large number of ports, only a few are considered major ports and they form the basis of a high-performance network that handles 96% of Europe's maritime traffic (ESPO - European Sea Ports Organization). In fact, only these major ports can accommodate the largest container ships (up to 18,000), usually from Asia, especially China.


Here we will examine freight forwarders from China to different countries in Europe. STU Supply Chain will help shipping your cargo from China to Europe.

Major Ports in Europe

European routes include Europe, the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Among them, Europe includes European basic ports and European inland points; the Mediterranean includes the east and west.


The Main Ports of Call in Europe

All shipping companies to Europe call at the following ports in Europe and then transfer to other corresponding ports or European inland points. The Main Ports of Call in Europe includes the following 6 ports: Hamburg, Antwerp, Flixstowe, Southampton, Rotterdam, Le Havre.


European Inland Points

The main ports of European inland points are: Zeebrugge, Bremerhaven, Marseille, Portsmouth, Dublin, Fredrikstad, Lisbon, Stockholm.


Mediterranean

Surrounded by the European continent to the north, the African continent to the south and the Asian continent to the east, the Mediterranean Sea occupies an important position in both transportation and strategy. It connects the Atlantic Ocean through the Strait of Gibraltar in the west, the Black Sea through the Turkish Strait in the northeast, and the Red Sea through the Suez Canal in the southeast to reach the Indian Ocean.

The Mediterranean Sea is the transportation hub of Europe, Asia and Africa, and a shortcut between the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. The Mediterranean Sea is bounded by the Apennine Peninsula, the Tunisian Strait between Sicily and Tunisia, and is divided into two parts: east and west, which are customarily called the east line and the west line.


The main ports in the eastern Mediterranean are: Limassol, Alexandria, Damietta, Ashdod, Beirut.


The main ports in the western Mediterranean are: Barcelona, Valencia, Naples, Livorno


Black Sea

The Black Sea route refers to the port route along the Black Sea coast. The Black Sea is an inland sea between southeastern Europe and the Asia Minor peninsula in Asia. It is the largest inland sea in the world, named for its dark, stormy waters. The Black Sea connects to the Mediterranean Sea through the Bosphorus, Marmara and Dardanelles to the west, and connects to the Sea of Azov through the Kerch Strait to the north.

The north coast of the Black Sea is Ukraine, the northeast coast is Russia, Georgia is on its east coast, Turkey is on its south coast, and Bulgaria, Romania and Moldova are on its west coast.

The main ports of the Black Sea are: Odessa, Constanta, Poti, Burgas, Novorossiysk.


Shipping from China to UK

The UK is one of the largest shipping destinations for imported goods from China to Europe. In most cases, ocean shipping is the best option, especially when shipping large items. But for more urgent goods, air freight is ideal.


Shipping from China to Germany

Germany provides a substantial market for a wide range of Chinese products. So this allows you to ship your products efficiently from China by sea, air, rail. Also, just like importing goods to other destinations in Europe, Germany also offers you many options.


Shipping from China to Italy

China and Italy are also strengthening trade ties by importing different products. In fact, Italy has some of the best shipping ports in the world, making it easy to ship items from China. Italian customs authorities always ensure that the process of importing goods from China or any other country is smooth. Some of the major imports from China to Italy include plastics, machinery such as computers, fossil fuels and electric motors.


Shipping from China to France

For a long time, France has provided a huge market for various Chinese products. But at the same time, you also need to know the specific products you need to import from China to France. What I do know is that the French government, like any other government in the region, has put in place strict measures to enforce compliance. The most important thing to import from China to France is to know some contraband and obey customs regulations.


Shipping from China to Latvia

The trade partnership between China and Latvia is also stable, and many imported products often enter Latvia from China. The Port of Riga is a very busy facility, so make sure you understand the dynamics of your business. It takes an average of 45 days to ship products from China to Latvia by sea.


Shipping from China to the Netherlands

In terms of infrastructure and terms of trade, the Netherlands is arguably the best in terms of imports from China. The country's docking ports and airports provide high efficiencies so that goods can be transported faster. Given the variety of options available for shipping from China to the Netherlands, you can be sure that many aspects of cost and time will vary. The same applies to the fact that you have to check and understand the specific products you need to import from China into this country.


Shipping from China to Spain

When you ship from China to Spain, one thing you need to understand is that distance matters. Still, you need to know that the rules and regulations governing the import process in Spain are somewhat strict. Even so, you need to know the ideal shipping season when importing from China to Spain. Of course, the off-season offers the best prices and guarantees better returns. However, regardless of the shipping season, you need to consider other aspects of the business.


Shipping from China to Estonia

Estonia is also a relatively little-known European country in terms of trade prowess. But I can tell you that this is one of the countries in Europe that provides a potential market for many Chinese products. You will see a wide variety of products from Chinese manufacturers.


Well, these are some of the major countries in Europe that tend to ship more frequently from China. You also need to keep in mind that shipping costs and the efficiency of the whole process will obviously vary, given the different dynamics.


Transit time between China and European ports

Please find below the average transit times (in days) of the most important ports in China and Europe:


Marseille Le Havre Antwerp Rotterdam Hamburg Valencia
Shanghai 25 26 32 27 30 25
