      Importing Goods from Taiwan and China to California - Need Help and Advice on How to Save Money

      Hey all,

      My company imports goods from China and Taiwan, and we sell them out of our Southern California warehouse. Right now, we're paying about $900 after the ISF bond and everything to bring in a typical LCL, 320LB/82CuFt order, and I want to save money. I think, some firms send their goods to the Port of Ensenada, then have it trucked across the MX/US border, saving a fortune on harbor fees. I was wondering, does this sort of arrangement make sense for LCL shipments? I would love to avoid the outrageous LCL bond fee ($150).

      I think that would only work if you are bringing in FCL shipments.

      Your LCL loads would have to be shared with importers who are all wanting to go through the same route. Otherwise, your container would hold shipments for Mexican importers and your goods would have to be unloaded at Ensenada, and transshipped.

      The cost would far exceed what you are now paying.
