Transport China

Export is one of the most important pillars of the Chinese economy. All exporting conditions are optimal and fully developed, as is transportation. Domestic logistics, ports, train connections, and air freight options are thus limitless and well-organized for shipping to the rest of the world.

China container

At Scale Roads, you have three options for transporting your China container: air freight, sea freight, and train. Scale Roads is constantly striving for improvement in order to increase the efficiency of your supply chain.

Rail Transportation

If the shipment is too large or expensive for air freight and delivery by sea freight is too slow, train transportation is an excellent alternative. This option is less expensive than air freight and faster than shipping. This solution is best suited for large quantities and heavy products.


We can ship your products by air for smaller quantities such as sample(s) and/or urgent requests: this is the quickest but also the most expensive option. This mode of transportation is best suited for products with low volume and weight.

Ocean freight

Ocean freight is the most cost-effective method of transporting your products to their final destination. There are three options for full sea container loads: 20ft, 40ft, and 40HQ. If the shipment is less than a full container, it is known as an LCL shipment (Less than Container Load).

Shipping container costs

The cost of a shipping container fluctuates daily, especially in times of a pandemic. Inquire for the best price and appropriate advice. Need to transport a bulk order? Let us arrange it!

Clearance of goods

Customs issues must be addressed when transporting a sea container. We can arrange for customs clearance in consultation. This can then be handled for you. We are well-versed in all Asian customs rules, legal regulations, import duties, and other administrative matters. We will clear your sea containers if you choose Scale Roads. Not only will you avoid unexpected costs and delays, but you will also save time and be able to focus on what is truly important to you: doing business.


Container rates in China are determined by the mode of transport chosen, the route, the period, the type of goods, the destination country’s import duties, and the amount of cargo. You can choose between a full container and a less-than-container-load (LCL) shipment.

Cost The type of goods you import from China is determined by the type of goods you import. An HS code with the import percentage is attached to the type of goods. This percentage is based on the total amount of imports. The total import value is the sum of the value of the goods plus the cost of transportation.

Prior to the pandemic, import amounts at Scale Roads were around $1,000. This is more than $10,000 during the pandemic.
