to say, the more your order, the lower the prices we
offer. But, you may not realize that the larger saving can be derived
from the freight cost.
Please keep in mind that the binoculars are shipped
from one continent to another where there
are Pacific Ocean or Atlantic Ocean in between, so making
good judgment on the transportation means and planning
carefully will save you substantial money.
you should know that the shipping rate is quoted based
on the weight (or volume in the case of ocean freight)
and the destination air/sea port to which the binoculars
the binoculars 25/40x100, shipped to the destination
air/sea port as New York, for example:
air freight rate from Kunming to New York
Grade means for the commodity weighing not more than
ocean freight rate from Kunming to New York
Transportation combination: from Kunming to the sea port of
Guangzhou by train, from the sea port of Guangzhou
to New York by ship.
The commodity is charged either as loose bulk or container for ocean freight.
freight for break bulk
higher of the 2 values, weight or volume, is multiplied
by the weight rate. To
calculate the Volume/Measure in cubic meter (m3),
multiply length by width by height (in meters).
freight rate to New York is quoted by Weight or Measure,
$120.00 W/M. This means the rate is applied per 220
kgs (Weight) or
1 cubic meter (Measure), which ever is greater.
The inland Kunming to sea port of Guangzhou
train transportation cost is already included in the
freight for container
ocean freight rate for a 20 feet container from sea
port of Guangzhou via Hong Kong is USD 1,400-1,600$.
A 20 feet container is 5.9m(length)x2.2m(width)x2.4m(height)=31.15
m3 in dimension.
Actually, it can hold the cargo with the volume
of roughly 28 m3.
25/40x100 is packed in two cartons: one for the binoculars
body, another for the wood tripod.
units of 25/40x100 are bundled together on one
pallet of which the total measurement
is 1.30CBM. The average measurement of per unit
is 0.15 CBM. A 20
feet container can hold
28/0.15 = 180 units of 25/40x100.
freight cost for the different order quantity of 25/40x100
from Kunming to New York is:
25/40x100 weighs 35 kg (including the tripod and outside
protect the binoculars, every 4-9 units will be bundled
into one pallet of which the weight is 8 kg.
So , the average gross weight (including pallets)

The above freight rates are subjected to changes.
The above freight rate is a basic guide only
and made to give you a rough idea about the freight
cost on one binoculars model (25/40x100) for the different
order quantity in different transportation means.
In actuality, you¨ll order more than one model
each in different quantity.
So, the packages may be irregular and large and
odd-shaped packages may be subjected to higher "oversized"
But, you see the BIG difference, right?
course, you must have strong sales capability and enough
disposable capital to order large quantity like 100
as an ＾average￣ or ＾emerging￣ dealer, you can still
save substantial freight cost if you plan carefully.
Below are two important tips:
Know the average sales volume per month.
For example, you sell 35 units in six months,
then you sell average 6 units per month.
If you order the last 35 units in three shipments,
then now you can plan to order 35-40 units for the next
six months in one shipment by sea or
By the sea and air shipping combination.
For example, if you need 6-8 units urgently for
the next month, then you could have 8 units shipped
by air, other 27-32 units shipped by sea for the next
point is for the larger quantity order, the price and
freight rate is lower; And in one shipment rather than
several shipments, you avoid the repeated charges like
export customs clearance fee and the pallets fumigation
you may be interested in knowing the transportation
time both by air and sea:
air: 3-5 days from Kunming->Bangkok (or Beijing,
Singapore, Hong Kong)->major destination airports
in North America and European Community countries;
sea: 35-40 days from Kunming->Guangzhou (or Hong
Kong)->major destination seaports in North America;
45-50 days from Kunming->Guangzhou (or Hong Kong)->major
destination seaports in European Community countries.
of our customers need the goods ASAP and at the same
time they want the goods to be transported by sea, which
is a request beyond our capability. Some of them just order a small quantity of binoculars and
then either are scared off by the "too high"
air freight cost or want us to transport the shipment
by sea. Take
into account the factors like order quantity, price
discount, delivery time, air/sea shipping, freight cost,
payment terms, your sales strength, money turn-over
and the market demands trend (increase/decrease).
These factors are related to each other and you
need to consider the different combination plans and
find the most optimized one that makes sense
and saves your money.
