Our furniture products are usually heavy and large in scale even after knockdown package, most customers would choose to ship furniture with containers from sea shipping lines & companies instead of DHL, UPS, or FedEx. Although sea shipping would cost more days than air express, the cost is much cheaper even it has increased a lot because of COVID-19 and containers shortage in recent years, the goods in containers also can be well protected and they are not easily damaged as by air, therefore, many importers still choose to ship goods from China by sea.
