Shipping Information in our China Hats Factory
As a professional caps and hats supplier, for sure we have our partners of shipping company who work with us for years, with great experiences and good prices.
For FOB ( free on board) trade conditions, we only quote to our customer the caps hats cost and any fee from factory to warehouse of shipping company, which means under this conditions, do not include shipping charge from China to your destination. So, If customer want us to arrange shipping for them, we will calculate the total weight and volume and fetch shipping charge from forwarder, if customers are satisfy with this, pay us money and we will arrange shipping. If customers have more competitive prices of other shipping companies, we are welcome and accept them.
For CFR ( cost and freight) and CIF ( cost, freight, insurance) term, which means our prices include cost, freight charge ( and insurance), thus we will arrange shipping to our customers. From China sea port to destination port of customer's country. But want to point it out, this shipping charge only include the shipping charge from sea port in China to your sea port of your country, but do not include the domestic charge or any fee occur in your country, for example, the transpotation fee from your sea port to your address , your import duty , etc.
Some customers don't understand or have not improted from China before will make misunderstanding about this, they thought that was DOOR TO DOOR prices, autually they were not. You need to make custom clearance and pay for the import duty ( if any) in your country, arrange the trucker to get the cargo from your sea port.
For DDP ( delivered duty paid) terms, in US usally call LDP ( landed duty paid) , which means DOOR TO DOOR prices, this prices include all the charge , cost, freight charge, custom applying ( our country) and clearance ( your country) , trucker charge from destination port to customers' address and import duty of your country. If you are asking this terms, everything is well arranged and customer just need to received them in due date.
iF customer have their norminated supplier, we are welcome and will contact your forwarder for shipping charge and then adding this charge to our quotation, based upon different trade conditions listed above. We will recommend our forwarder to you if our prices are more competitive than yours. We will try our best to save money for our every customer.
Just give customer a rough idea of how shipping charge is , For example, destination is Texas, US, cargo is baseball hats 3000pcs, this packing appx 3 cbm and freight charge is USD280 only by sea. You see, if your quanity is more than 2000 pcs, it's really worthwhile to import from China as every cost of caps and hats are more competitive than in some other countries, even adding the freight charge. We welcome for all your concerns.
