Living in China
With a population of 1.404 billion people and land spanning 9.6 million square kilometres, China is a vast country, situated in East Asia. It has a varied landscape, with deserts, subtropical forests and mountain ranges, as well as two major rivers, the Yangtze and the Yellow Rivers, leading it to have megadiverse status with at least 551 mammal species living there, the third highest number globally. It borders fourteen nations, more than any country in the world as it expands across much of East Asia. Economically it continues to show its power, for two thousand years having the largest economy and currently being the second largest in terms of nominal GDP. It is a Communist country so has traditionally had a centralised economy, though in modern times it has deviated from this and this has contributed to it being one of the fastest growing economies. It largely depends on export-led growth and investment; it is a global leader in manufacturing but is one of the most energy intensive and inefficient producers, being the world’s largest energy consumer. The most populous country in the world, China has attempted to combat its huge population by introducing in 1979 the one-child policy, but it was said to have limited affects on the population and was extremely controversial due to cultural perceptions of gender, meaning many female babies became victims of infanticide, seen as very problematic by human rights advocates.

What are the shipping methods for sending items to China?
Shipping-containers to China via Air Freight
If you need your belongings in China in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Shipping-containers via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for China Shipping-containers is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.
If you are only sending a one bedroom flat, some boxes of clothes or a few items of furniture to China but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to China service cooperatively with another method of transportation. Such as sending a small number of items they need as a priority via air freight and everything else they can send via sea freight to cut costs.
Another factor that might influence the cost of your Shipping-containers to China via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in China. You can choose to collect your goods at the airport yourself, or you can request that diligent moving teams deliver your goods to the kerbside of your new home.
Shipping-containers to China via Sea Freight
For Shipping-containers to China, sea freight is one of the most favoured transport methods due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for our clients. Shipping-containers to China via sea freight can sometimes be a slow process, therefore we advise that you allow ample time for your delivery.
Shared container load is the ideal Shipping-containers to China choice if you have a small consignment such as a one bedroom flat, a studio apartment or a small office space. All of your goods and furnishings will be wrapped, packed and loaded onto a shared shipping container to China and you will only pay for the space this baggage occupies.
Dedicated container load is the recommended China Shipping-containers method if you are sending an entire home load or a large commercial office space. You will pay to receive the sole use of a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. A 20ft container will fit a three-bedroom home comfortably and 40ft is sufficient space if you want to send a vehicle amongst other goods.
Owing to our partnership with a number of global removals organisations, your goods will be delivered to the destination of your choice in China, by a team of movers that are committed to delivering a premium service.
