The importance of China in the international trade market goes without saying. For the past 5 years, their ports have ranked highest in both import and export within the ocean freight industry. To gain a deeper understanding of this unique market, three representatives from iContainers attended the 13th Annual SINO Conference in Shanghai.
The opportunities were endless. The event attracted over 1,500+ freight forwarders, logistics vendors, and industry-related companies from around the globe. The experience of networking with key players in the freight forwarding industry was priceless. It allowed us to exchange knowledge and potentially form new business relationships, not just with Chinese companies, but many others as well.
Since China is one of the countries we offer Door-to-Door services in, it’s key to have reliable partners. It is important that our partners share similar goals and values while representing iContainers. We continue to grow our export and import shipments from China annually. As such, it is especially relevant to build stronger relationships to continue offering the best possible experiences for our clients.
"The problem with these costs is that they’re often impossible to predict and are thus hardly ever considered when analyzing and comparing ocean freight rates"
