About Shipping to Port of Toronto

How best to ship by sea freight from China to the Port of Toronto?

One way which CNXtrans can help you ship by sea freight from China to the Port of Toronto 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 Toronto to help you with customs clearance. FCL and LCL shipping do not come inclusive of any customs duties in Canada and destination port charges. Both customs duties and destination port charges will be payable once the shipment has arrived in Toronto. You can either pick up the goods at the Port of Toronto or arrange to have your agent to collect the goods from the Port of Toronto and deliver all the way to your address.

Alternatively, CNXtrans can also ship by sea freight to your address in Toronto or anywhere in Canada on a door to door basis. With door to door sea freight shipments from China to Toronto or anywhere in Canada, CNXtrans will be able to include customs clearance service, customs duties, destination port charges and delivery all the way to your address in Canada. This will save your the hassle of having to hire your own customs broker in Canada or worrying about having to pay customs duties and destination port charges in Canada without knowing how much they will cost. With door to door sea freight shipping from China to Canada via CNXtrans, all the these costs 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.

One more alternative that CNXtrans offers for customers looking to ship from China to Toronto is to simply ship from China to a partner warehouse located in Toronto close to the Port of Toronto. This type of shipments will also be done on a door-to door basis meaning that the shipment will also include customs clearance, customs duties, destination port fees and delivery to the partner warehouse in Toronto. You will not need to hire your own customs broker or pay any customs duties in Canada. Once the shipment has arrived at the port warehouse in Toronto, you will then need to make arrangements to have the goods collected from there.

Port of Toronto

The Port of Toronto, one of Canada's largest major inland ports, is situated on the northwest shore of Lake Ontario. Located minutes from Toronto’s downtown core, the Port of Toronto has served as Toronto’s gateway to the St. Lawrence Seaway and to marine ports around the world since 1793.

Serving primarily as a bulk cargo destination, the Port of Toronto boasts a seamless network of cost-effective intermodal links to road, rail and air transportation, serving as a unique and crucial piece of the city’s economic infrastructure. In addition to moving cargo, the Port of Toronto also welcomes cruise ships and passengers from around the globe through the Cruise Ship Terminal.

In addition to its economic impact, imports through the Port of Toronto have a positive impact on the environment and traffic congestion. In 2020 approximately 54,000 40-tonne trucks were taken off Toronto's already congested roads and highways through cargo being moved by ship. The Port of Toronto is a vital connection to the world, not only boosting tourism and trade, but also helping to lower Toronto’s carbon footprint.

Port of Toronto, formerly known as the Toronto Port Authority (TPA), proudly owns and operates Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, which welcomes more than two million passengers each year; the Outer Harbor Marina, one of Canada’s largest freshwater marinas; and Terminals 51 and 52, which provide transportation, distribution, storage and container services to businesses at the Port of Toronto.

Building on its rich history of public-service, the Port of Toronto ensures Toronto’s Harbor is safe for boaters and visitors, and is responsible for protecting the environment in the Harbor. The Port of Toronto works with the surrounding community to shape a balanced, thriving and sustainable waterfront where Torontonians and visitors alike can work and enjoy for generations to come.

The Port of Toronto connects Toronto to the world, whether it be welcoming travelers to and from Toronto through the airport, importing and exporting goods through the port, connecting the airport to the mainland through the new pedestrian tunnel, or the connection made with one’s natural surroundings at the Outer Harbor Marina or the Leslie Street Spit, which is also managed by the Port of Toronto.

The Port of Toronto is an inland port on the northwest shoreline of Lake Ontario in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Port of Toronto covers over 21 hectares (52 acres) of land on the eastern shore of the Toronto Harbor, in an area known as the Port Lands. The port includes several facilities, including Marine Terminal 51, Warehouse 52, and the International Marine Passenger Terminal. The Port of Toronto is operated by PortsToronto.

Free Warehousing Services at the CNXtrans Warehouse

Hence you can take your time to make all the orders from various suppliers that you need to make - we'll store all your goods (which have already arrived) at our warehouse until everything has arrived and you're ready to ship internationally

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.
