How best to ship by sea freight from China to the Port of Adelaide?
One way which CNXtrans can help you ship by sea freight from China to the Port of Adelaide is on a FCL (Full Container Load) or LCL (Less Container Load) basis. If we ship this way, you will need to hire your own customs broker in Adelaide to help you with customs clearance. FCL and LCL shipping do not come inclusive of any customs duties in Australia and destination port charges. Both customs duties and destination port charges will be payable once the shipment has arrived in Adelaide. You can either pick up the goods at the Port of Adelaide or arrange to have your agent to collect the goods from the Port of Adelaide and deliver all the way to your address.
Alternatively, CNXtrans can also ship by sea freight to your address in Adelaide or anywhere in Australia on a door to door basis. With door to door sea freight shipments from China to Adelaide or anywhere in Australia, CNXtrans will be able to include customs clearance service, destination port charges and delivery all the way to your address in Australia. Any applicable customs duties in Australia will be payable to customs in Australia once the shipment has arrived in Australia. This will save your the hassle of having to hire your own customs broker in Australia or worrying about destination port charges in Australia without knowing how much they will cost. With door to door sea freight shipping from China to Australia via CNXtrans, all the these costs (except customs duties) are included upfront in the shipping fee that you pay to CNXtrans, giving you a peace of mind and all you have to do is wait for the shipment to be delivered to your door.

Free Repackaging Service
CNXtrans does not charge you for repackaging of goods at our warehouse. Once all your packages have arrived we'll access them for international shipping and decide how to pack them in the most efficient way as to minimize your volumetric weight and thereby minimize your international shipping costs. This may involve using a smaller package for certain items or simply combining all the items from different packages into one big package - we'll do whatever it takes to minimize your volumetric weight.
Free Consolidation of Packages
CNXtrans does not charge you for consolidating your packages into a single shipment. This is ideal if you're buying from multiple suppliers/factories/Alibaba manufacturers but wish to have all your goods shipped together as a single international shipment in order to minimize your shipping costs. Consolidation is sometimes confused with repacking but in actual fact consolidation can come both with or without repacking. Consolidation simply refers to the act of shipping multiple packages concurrently as a single shipment - they do not all have to be combined into one big package - as long as they are shipped together (concurrently) it is considered one consolidated shipment. There is a base shipping charge (which can be thought of as a minimum shipping charge) for each shipment that you make and shipping multiple packages concurrently (which constitutes a consolidated shipment) ensures that you only have to pay this base charge once instead of paying it for every single package that is shipped separately.
Even without repacking them into a single package, shipping multiple packages concurrently helps you save because you are only charged the base shipping weight once. This helps reduce your international shipping costs. Naturally, if deemed appropriate for your shipment, consolidation can come with repackaging too - after assessing your shipment if we deem that combining all the items into one single large package or into fewer packages can help reduce your volumetric weight, we will do so for you at no charge.
