Ocean freight shipping to Kuwait

You always have to plan your shipment, especially when you have a large load (over 1000 kg), or the size of the goods occupy more than 2cubic meters from china to Kuwait.


As usual, sea shipping is the best choice for transporting a large shipment. However, it is additionally the most complicated method of transportation, and it takes a long time. From China to Kuwait, sea shipping transit time is estimated at around 20 to 35 days from port to port, and 30 to 55 days from door to door delivery.


In China, there are several ports such as Shanghai port, Ningbo port, Shenzhen port, Tianjin port, Qingdao port, Xiamen port, plus Hong Kong port, from which your shipping can leave to Kuwait.

FCL or LCL for ocean freight

When you want to send goods to Kuwait, you have two options: FCL (a full container load) or LCL (groupage), a shared container.

Twenty-foot containers accommodate eight standard pallets.
If your goods are equal to at least half of a 20-foot container, then a full container load (FCL) will be essential, and if your goods need to be isolated from other items of exporters to avoid any damage, FCL is also the best choice.

Also, if you do not want to separate your items from others, you can choose LCL. In this way, you can share a container and pay only for the space you need. Consult DDPCH for important information, including rates.
