Can anyone recommend a reliable & reasonably priced LCL shipping company for a small (25kg) single package consignment from (Eastern) China to NZ?
I'm guessing sea freight will be cheaper than air & this isn't as a problem as there's no specific time frame to get it here.
I'm currently seeking prices from the main players, ie Mainfreight & DHL, but it would be great if anyone has any other recommendations I can try.
We use Rohlig where I work & they are great. We are bringing in large amounts, as in, have just had 100ft of stock arrive, and have another 80ft arriving in a couple of weeks, and usually have at least 60ft arriving every 6-8 weeks throughout the year. Never have any issues with it getting held up etc. They are even getting a shipment re-routed for me currently (was supposed to go straight to Aus, & supplier put it on a ship to NZ instead).
Thanks for the replies ashesman & alouho. I eventually got a reasonable deal with DHL via the supplier & the parcel has just landed in NZ today & is currently with NZ Customs.
There's no duty payable on the goods, but I've got GST & the IETF to pay, hopefully it won't take too long for them to let me know how much I owe them.
It's the first time I've done anything like this & I've found the process quite stressful, but I guess the more you do it the easier it becomes. :confused:
