Explaining Freight & Duty costs to get your product from China to your door

It’s important to understand how the aspects of freight charges and their associated taxes work to be able to estimate how much it will cost to get your product delivered to your door. There are several aspects
  • Free on Board (FOB): This is the price for the manufacture of the product and getting it to the nearest dock in China. It is the normal practice in China to quote this way and it is what we will initially quote you.
We will arrange getting it from the dock in China to the required address in one easy step. However, it’s worth understanding the various elements that make charge up.
  • Freight: this is the cost of getting the container from the dock in China to your address in Europe. It’s possible to have a 20ft container, a 40ft container or a 40ft High Cube (which is a 40ft container that is slightly taller). Their theoretical capacities are 32.8 cu.m, 67.2 cu.m and 75.9 cu.m respectively. If you do not need a full container, we can arrange by the pallet for you.
  • Insurance: If requested, we will insure the product for you for a nominal sum
  • Import Duty: This is paid on most goods that are imported into the EU. Once duty is paid, the goods are in 'free circulation' and can move throughout the EU without restriction. Duty is usually percentage based, and averages between 5-9% with extremes of nil and 85%. It is charged on the sum of the FOB cost, insurance and freight charge. VAT is payable on the total, although VAT is recoverable in the normal manner.
At YWSChinaDirect, we will take the pain out of all of this for you. We will initially quote you FOB and an estimate of the delivered cost including freight, duty and insurance if desired. The reason for an estimate is the often freight rates change month to month and we want to ensure you get the best deal available. Either way, you can always be assured that you will get the best price and unrivalled service to source your goods from China and deliver to your door at www.YWSChinaDirect.com
