Shipping & Importing to China via Hong Kong

2 Ways to Ship & Import to China

For shipping & importing to China, there are two main ways to do it. The first way is that you ship direct to Mainland China. The second is that you ship the goods to Hong Kong first and then from Hong Kong the goods will be transported to Mainland China. 

Why it makes sense to ship via Hong Kong

Generally speaking, international shipping to Hong Kong whether by air or sea costs less than shipping directly to mainland China. Furthermore, imports to Hong Kong are import duty and tax-free. Hong Kong is a duty-free port and is landlocked with mainland China. The mainland Chinese city that borders Hong Kong is Shenzhen, which one of the primary logistics and e-commerce hubs of China and where many of our main warehouses are located.

At the same time, there will obviously be costs associated with transporting the goods from Hong Kong to Mainland China and going through Chinese customs at the Hong Kong-Shenzhen border but generally speaking (depending on the nature of your shipment) it will be more cost effective to ship via Hong Kong as compared to shipping directly to Mainland China.
