    furniture, home decor and other such accessories.
    The country has entire cities devoted to the
    manufacturing and sale of high-quality furniture.
    Finding furniture is not such a big issue. The
    trouble lies more with transporting the purchases
    from China to your site. To be profitable, you
    need the cheapest shipping from China to India.

  • In most cases, to be most cost-effective you must
    ship an entire container at a time. The fees for
    international shipping from China are wide
    ranging. There are a number of factors to be
    considered- basic freight charges from China to
    India, port and customs charges, import tax from
    China to India, cargo insurance, etc.

    side instead of the end. This makes them easier
    to load and unload.

  • Open top containers

    refer to those containers that have no roof. This
    makes it easier to load with machinery, packages
    of differing heights, etc.
