How Long to Ship From China to US?

Forest Shipping offers three ways for goods shipping from China to USA, Courier Service, Air Freight, and Sea Freight. But how long does it take to ship? Actually it depends on a major variable: Carrier.


Carrier by Air Express, or courier service, such as DHL, UPS, Fedex, TNT USPS, DPD, and Royal Express. It usually takes 3 to 5 business days from China to USA. Though it is the fastest way but it is only for small packages and files as its shipping fee is expensive.


Carrier by Air Freight. Air freight takes longer time than Air Express, usually 6 to 8 business days but it is cheaper than courier service and it suitable for heavier goods. Forest Shipping works with major airlines, and will ensure that your bulk products will be delivered safely and quickly.
