    Full Container (FCL) or Groupage (LCL)

    A couple of different container shipping options are available to those shipping a container to Ningbo: there is the option of a full container load (FCL), or that of a less-than-container load (LCL)-a shared container, or groupage.
    A 20-foot shipping container can take a maximum of 10 standard pallets, while a 40-foot container can carry 22 standard pallets. This can be helpful to know, because if the volume of your shipment is equal to six or more standard pallets, you'll need to go with a full container load. You should also choose FCL if you are concerned about any potential for damage to your goods that contact with others' goods may pose.
    Groupage-LCL, or a shared container-is an economical choice if your shipment is less than six standard pallets, and isolation of goods isn’t a concern. With LCL, you pay only for the shipping space you require. Contact iContainers for information on rates and other important details.

    Ocean Freight Routes to Ningbo

    Ningbo is one of China's busiest commercial ports. As China's foreign trade has grown over the past fifteen years, ports like Ningbo have become increasingly important elements of China's vital import and export activity.

    • Port of Ningbo
    • Several years ago, the port of Ningbo was merged with the port of Zhoushan; their combined resources can now handle 17 million TEUs annually. This is a deep-water, multi-purpose port with 309 berths and five different port areas: Ningbo, Zhenhai, Beilun, Chuanshan, and Daxie. The port is officially known as Ningbo-Zhoushan, and is located on the coast of the East China Sea in Zhejiang province; it faces Shanghai and Jiaxing. It features inland, estuary, and coastal harbors. Most goods exported from Zhejiang, China's second most-important province, pass through Ningbo-Zhoushan.

    Air Freight Transportation to Ningbo

    If you are dealing with a tight schedule or have an urgent shipment, air freight may be more appropriate to your needs than ocean freight. Air freight does, however, impose some limitations of volume and weight on your shipment. We recommend that you consult the iContainers calculator to help you determine the right option for you.
