About Shipping to Port of Vancouver

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

One way which CNXtrans can help you ship by sea freight from China to the Port of Vancouver 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 Vancouver 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 Vancouver. You can either pick up the goods at the Port of Vancouver or arrange to have your agent to collect the goods from the Port of Vancouver and deliver all the way to your address.

Alternatively, CNXtrans can also ship by sea freight to your address in Vancouver or anywhere in Canada on a door to door basis. With door to door sea freight shipments from China to Vancouver 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 Vancouver is to simply ship from China to a partner warehouse located in Vancouver close to the Port of Vancouver. 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 Vancouver. 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 Vancouver, you will then need to make arrangements to have the goods collected from there.

Port of Vancouver

The Port of Vancouver is the largest port in Canada and the fourth largest in North America by tonnes of cargo, facilitating trade between Canada and more than 170 world economies. The Port of Vancouver is managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, which was created in 2008 as an amalgamation of the former Port of Vancouver, the North Fraser Port Authority, and the Fraser River Port Authority. The Port of Vancouver is the principal authority for shipping and port-related land and sea use in the Metro Vancouver region.

The Port of Vancouver is managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, formerly called Port Metro Vancouver. The Port of Vancouver was created with the responsibility for the stewardship of the federal port lands in and around Vancouver, British Columbia. The Port of Vancouver was created as a financially self-sufficient company that is accountable to the federal minister of transport and operates pursuant to the Canada Marine Act. The Port of Vancouver port authority and port terminals and tenants are responsible for the efficient and reliable movement of goods and passengers, integrating environmental, social and economic sustainability initiatives into all areas of port operations.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is the federal agency responsible for the stewardship of the lands and waters that make up the Port of Vancouver, Canada’s largest port. Trade through the Port of Vancouver connects Canadian businesses and consumers with the variety of products that we use every day from markets across the globe, and generates tax revenues and secure employment for local communities.

Port of Vancouver: Canada’s largest port

Located on the southwest coast of British Columbia, the Port of Vancouver extends from Roberts Bank and the Fraser River up to and including Burrard Inlet. Geographically, the Port of Vancouver includes more than 16,000 hectares of water, more than 1,500 hectares of land and hundreds of kilometers of shoreline, bordering 16 municipalities and intersecting the traditional territories and treaty lands of several Coast Salish First Nations.

The Port of Vancouver is about the same size as the next five largest Canadian ports combined. Home to 29 major terminals, the port is able to handle the most diversified range of cargo in North America: bulk, containers, breakbulk, liquid bulk, automobiles and cruise. As the country’s gateway to over 170 trading economies around the world, the Port of Vancouver handles $1 of every $3 of Canada’s trade in goods outside of North America. Enabling the trade of approximately $275 billion in goods, port activities sustain 115,300 jobs, $7 billion in wages, and $11.9 billion in GDP across Canada.

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.
