Do you know how long it takes your shipment to reach Taiwan? If you don’t, it’s time to find out because there is a growing interest in Taiwan. In fact, it is the 10th largest trading partner with the United States . Bilateral trade reached $67.4 billion in 2014. So far in 2015, the exports to Taiwan have totaled $19.09 billion, and total imports from this Asian country are $30.9 billion.

There is a growing need for cooperation between the two countries. So get ready to learn more about US to Taiwan shipping times with the following infographic:


Taipei, Keelung, Taichung and Kaohsiung are the main ports in Taiwan. Your average shipping time between the US and Taiwan will be one to five days in the US, between 15 and 72 days on route (depending on your departure/arrival ports) and 3 to 4 days in Taiwan.

Be aware that if you are exporting to Taiwan, it might take at least two days longer, due to the customs clearance process. For example: if you need to ship something from Jacksonville to Taipei, it takes one day from Jacksonville, Florida to the Port of Miami. After that, it takes between 19 and 60 days in route and once it arrives at the port destination, it takes about 3-4 more days to reach its final destination. So keep in mind that in the best case scenario, your shipment will arrive within one month and in the worst case scenario, in two months.

With our new Door-to-Door Service to Taiwan, you can benefit from our ocean freight transportation between the US and Taiwan. You can send a Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than a Container Load (LCL). FCL is recommended for exporters whose volume of goods is between 10 and 20 standard pallets. LCL is the most economic option, but only if your goods do not require separation from other goods during shipment. It’s also known as “groupage” and reduces costs, since you only pay for the space occupied by your goods.

To calculate the price of your shipment, use our free calculator and get an online quote. This Door-to-door service is also a great alternative for those relocating to Taiwan.

We’ve launched this new service after the success of our Door-to-Door Service to Spain. More routes coming soon.
