Importing from China: wide-ranging possibilities

Importing products from China is possible via seafreight, air freight or rail transport along the New Silk Route. Sea freight and airfreight can be combined too (sea/air transport), so that goods arrive at their final destination quicker.


You might wonder how long it takes to import a container from China. It all depends on the modality and route. For example, if you want to bring products from Shanghai to the Netherlands by rail transport along the New Silk Route, the transit time is 21 days for door-to-door transport. The transit time for sea/air transport is usually the same. Sea freight from China takes longer, with an average transit time of 35 days from Shanghai. An airfreight consignment takes just 3 days across the entire route.
