Above is a chart of approximate shipping costs. Shipping rates are functions of many variables and fluctuate quite frequently. The above approximations exclude all associated international duties and tariffs.
Another important factor is where the client takes possession of their goods, and who is responsible for paying each portion of the associated shipping costs. A detailed chart explaining the terminology is listed at the link below.
Which shipping method do you recommend?
Both timing and costs are the major drivers in answering this question. Generally, we recommend ocean shipment for large volume orders. Shipping ocean will allow a lower per pound shipping cost but requires longer lead times. As mentioned above, shipping via ocean typically takes 4-5 weeks. For smaller volume orders for which time is a critical factor we recommend airfreight.
