Container Shipping by Sea
A standard 40 foot container can accommodate 22 standard pallets, with a 20 foot container holding 10 pallets.
If you’re shipping large volumes and can fill a container, it makes sense to choose FCL (Full Container Load).
The other advantage of Full Container Load is that your items are kept separate from other importers.
On the other hand, LCL (Less than a Container Load) refers to shipping where your goods share space within a container with other goods.
If you’re okay with that, then LCL shipping (also known as groupage) offers a more economical way to ship smaller quantities that make up less than half of the volume of a full container.
Also keep in mind that certain types of freight may require specialised tools when in transit, we’ll be able to provide you with these to ensure your goods remain in perfect condition!
CONSIDERATIONS FOR LCL FREIGHT SHIPPING
LCL shipping means your goods will share space with goods from other companies.
This also means that your delivery might take a little bit longer, because of both the packing and unpacking process.
Before departure, your goods will be stored in a consolidation warehouse in China until departure, and then on arrival be held in a de-consolidation warehouse in Chile before they are delivered to your address.
CONSIDERATIONS FOR FCL FREIGHT SHIPPING
FCL shipping means renting an entire container for your shipment.
If you have a large enough cargo to occupy a container, or even most of a container, FCL shipping may make the most economical sense.
It’s also quicker than LCL shipping as there is no need to consolidate or deconsolidate your items from others.
Your container will also remain sealed throughout the journey and unless customs officials select it for inspection it will be sealed until it arrives at your address or chosen destination.
Air Freight From China To Chile

However, be aware that speed comes with a price and air freight can be costly too.

Do not try to subvert the rules as all parcels are scanned before shipping and if you are found to be trying to ship prohibited items, the package will be returned to you at your own expense.
Some of the goods that are prohibited are: weapons, acids or other goods that can damage other parcels.
Items such as controlled drugs or tobacco are also restricted.
How to wrap and package your goods.
In order for your goods to reach their destination without being damaged it pays to make sure they are packed well.
Make sure to choose a good box, one that is stiff and resilient enough to absorb any impacts or bumps your package may take.
Of course, most of the time, your package won’t get bumped at all, but it pays to be sure.
If the box doesn’t encompass the whole of the goods inside it then fill the empty space with packing material so your goods don’t rattle.
Your package will also need to have a sticker on it with the bill of lading that we will send to you clearly visible
