Frequently Asked Questions

Typically, sea freight from China to Nigeria takes between 30 to 45 days, depending on the specific ports used, the shipping route, and whether the shipment is direct or requires transshipment.

Costs depend on several factors, including the volume and weight of the cargo, whether it’s FCL or LCL, and any additional services like insurance or customs clearance. Prices can range significantly based on these variables.

FCL (Full Container Load) means you’re renting an entire container for your goods, which can be more cost-effective for large shipments. LCL (Less Than Container Load) allows you to pay only for the space you use, ideal for smaller shipments.

Essential documents include a Bill of Lading/Air Waybill, commercial invoice, packing list, and potentially specific permits or certificates depending on the nature of the goods.

Goods should be securely packed to withstand transit, using sturdy boxes, palletizing where appropriate, and considering climate factors. Accurate labeling is also crucial.
