Once a purchase order is received,it normally takes 2 to 3 weeks to produce most products. Production times vary depending upon the product itself,and the amount of time consumed for the approval process. For most products,the factory makes a production sample for buyer approval prior to mass production. Air shipping approval samples between parties can add another week to the production time line.
NORMAL SHIPPING TO MIDWEST USA
30 Days for Ocean Shipping
Lower Cost Option
Most ocean lines now offer what is referred to as a slow ship at a reduced rate. This is actually a normal vessel operated at a reduced speed in order to conserve fuel. Choosing the slow ship will add 3 or 4 days to the shipping time,but minimize transportation costs.
3 to 5 Days for Air Shipping
Air shipments from Shanghai benefit from crossing the International Date Line and actually arrive at a U.S. airport freight facility about the same time it leaves China. The three to five days are consumed by Customs procedures and normal shipping times from the airport to the product’s final destination.
