We all know that by sea is the cheapest way, while by air is more expensive. And door to door is the most expensive one. But why sometimes we still need to ship by the door to door. We will see some cases in the following text.
One client bought 100pcs small plastic sand timer.
We recommend him shipping by the door to door. Why? The following is what we are thinking.
The size of this sand timer is small. So 100pcs just is a small package. If by sea or by air, that would need a lot of handling fee. And that is more expensive than the shipping cost by the door to door. Then you know the answer, door to door is the best way.
One client said the sand timer shipping cost is expensive than other products.
Telling the truth, this is right. Shipping sand timer is more expensive than shipping other products. The reason is, the sand is glass beads, something like power, so it needs to use a particular way. It requires two more dollars at least per KG.
One client needs very urgent order, and the goods have more than 15CBM.
Only one way: by air. It is Cheaper than door to door and much faster than shipping by sea. Sometimes it is just a little slower than door to door.
One client needs 15 CBM goods and not very urgent.
For this one, we can ship by sea. And actually, most clients use this way, because they have always planned for everything before placing the order.
