What factors do you need to consider when shipping to China from the USA?
Due to the differences in the two countries’ political systems,
shipping to China from the US
can be challenging and confusing since China’s regulatory processes are controlled and dictated by a single-party governing body. New tariffs (especially retaliatory tariffs), customs regulations and other import related processes and regulations may be authorized and enacted with very little or even no grace period.
The Chinese government imposes tight restrictions on commodities such as personal effects, secondhand vehicles, liquor, tobacco, waste paper, dangerous goods, metal scrap, returned merchandise, etc. It is strongly recommended that you consult dependable transportation professionals at the origin and that they work with their counterparts in China to ensure every required document for imports into China are in place before the goods being shipped are en route. This will avoid consequences such as fines, delay of released goods, cargo abandonment and related costs. China Customs even has to right to confiscate your goods upon arrival at the destination.
Disputes on customs classification in China can be costly, lengthy and sometimes arbitrary while cargo is being held in China Customs. Appealing arbitrary customs decisions in China can prove to be difficult as the government grants relatively limited due process rights.
