Transportation Methods

Various transportation methods are available for shipping goods from China to the USA, each offering its own advantages in terms of speed and convenience. Air to Airport services provide a rapid delivery option, with goods arriving at the airport within 1 to 3 days. For slightly longer but convenient and expedited shipping, Express to Door services take around 2 to 5 days to deliver your goods directly to your doorstep.

If you opt for Sea to Port shipping, it takes approximately 2 weeks for your goods to reach the destination port in the USA.
