Sea Freight from China to Malaysia

Consolidated sea freight shipping from China to Malaysia remains one of the most popular choices among Malaysians. Sea freight has earned its reputation for being a low-cost yet reliable method of shipping. When you do not need your parcels urgently, sea freight is the most recommended method for China to Malaysia shipping. 


Types of sea freight shipping


For sea freight, those who are familiar with consolidated shipping and container ships will know that it is usually categorised into LCL or FCL. 


FCL stands for full container and this is suitable for items and cargo that exceed 15 cubic meters in total. One major advantage of FCL shipping is that you get to have an entire container for yourself, which minimizes any potential tampering or damage to your cargo. Other than that, FCL is also cheaper for those who are purchasing in bulk. 


LCL stands for less than one container load. For LCL shipments, cargo is loaded into the container alongside the items from other importers. While more expensive if you consider item by item, the overall shipping cost is cheaper than FCL if you are not purchasing in bulk.


Shipping time for China to Malaysia Sea Freight


Sea freight usually takes around 8 to 14 days. It also depends on several factors such as custom clearance and weather conditions at sea. If you are consolidating shipping from different sellers, it may also affect shipping time as well.
