TRUCKING SERVICES AND ROAD FREIGHT SHIPPING IN CHINA

Trucking Services and Road Freight Shipping in China

China has witnessed dramatic growth over the last three decades or so, something that has seen it emerge as an epicenter for global trade. Most of the production in the world happens in the Asian nation before it finds its way to the rest of the world through the vast network of shipping routes involving road, sea, rail and air transport.

That makes the freight industry big business in China, which is both a good thing and a bad thing.

Good in the sense that the availability of multiple options is always a good thing, and bad in that it can make it extremely difficult to choose a shipping provider with so many alternatives, more so if you’re not very much acquainted with the industry.

For this reason, just like when choosing a moving company for local, cross-country or international moving, you want to do your due diligence to avoid the frustration (and significant losses) that come with choosing an unreliable provider.

In fact, choosing a road freight and trucking service isn’t much different from choosing a moving company, barring a few differences.
