      Shipping Agents for China to UK

      Hello Everyone

      I am new to this website and really appreciate the platform.

      I have just started a small business where I buy appealing items and sell to retailers here in the UK. The goods that I have been buying are small order (under 100 kg)

      However, I am now researching how to get bigger orders over to the UK at low costs and using adequate process to do so.

      Could anyone please advise me on how to find and verify a reliable shipping agent who pick up my goods from the factories in China and get them to our place of business (door to door) so to speak,

      What sort of cost do these agents charge, issues to avoid, duty, tax etc..

      Is their a 360 business model or a one stop service to help us.

      The main aim is to get the goods in England.

      Hi Dearpeer,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      To save on shipping, try services like International container shipping-Freight Exchange ?

      For the UK, Duty and VAT will be added to the total value of the shipment, including agent fees if they are included in the price of the goods or transport costs.

      To verify a shipping agent, you would carry out the same due diligence to verify any other business. We recommend you use a shipping agent based in Hong Kong, they are cheaper than UK shipping agents and they are accustomed to UK standards. If you already trust your supplier, you could ask them to recommend you one of their shipping agents, however this is only recommended once your relationship with the supplier has matured.

    5. Thank you for this post:

      Hi Dearpeer,

      I am looking for the same info as you were. Did you find any satisfying agents and info on the processes? Would you be able to share your finding?

      I am new to this business and is looking for some reliable info and insight from people who have experience in this area.

      Thank you.

      Dearpeer,

      You should try a service like what chriszou888 offered if your supplier is in Guangdong province.

      But there are tons of these logistics companies in China. Therefore choose one that is near to where your supplier is.

      If you need help, I may be able to help you as I use different of these companies all over China.
