Container Shipping rates from China to India

China to India Container Shipping

Rundown about Container shipping rates from China to India

Container shipping rates from China to India basically depend upon the methods used for shipment. Methods of shipping include road freight, rail freight, air freight, express shipping, and sea freight.
The low reliability and high costs of road freight make it unrecommended. In a similar vein, rail freight between China and India comes at a high cost. If the shipment is at least 2CBM and the supplier is near a railway line, rail freight can be considered a good alternative.
Otherwise, it is not recommended. Air freight costs can vary based on the season, current demand, and the load being shipped. In February 2021, the air shipment cost of 100 kg weight fluctuated from Rs. 316.98 to 350.99. Regarding express shipping, it is very costly.
As the name suggests, it is a very high-speed shipment method. The Container shipping rates from China to India varied from Rs. 419.75 to 658.57 in February 2021

China to India Container Shipping Rates

 Container shipping rates from China to India by sea are the most reliable and cost-effective way to move goods from China to India. Shipping goods by sea between these two countries takes longer than by air, rail, or road, there is no doubt about that. 

There are two options for shipments: less than container load (LCL) and full container load (FCL). LCL cost from Shanghai to Mumbai fluctuated from Rs. 7237 to 8648.40 in February 2021 whereas FCL (40’ container) for the same route was Rs. 231584-260532 in the same month. 

It takes between 14-24 days for sea freight shipments from China to India. However, Container shipping rates from China to India and transportation time will depend on the departure port in China and arrival port in India. 

It will also depend on whether your shipment is FCL or LCL, and whether your goods are being shipped port-to-port or door-to-door.  It is a much more cost-effective way than all of the other alternatives.
