How long does it take and how much does it cost to ship from Asia to the U.S.?

Answer

Costs and times vary depending on shipping method (courier service, air or surface freight). Courier services like DHL, UPS or FedEx are the fastest, but most expensive. These services are great for small shipments (up to 250 lbs) or samples that need to get to the U.S. quickly. Prices depend on the weight and dimensions of goods shipped and transit times typically range from 3 to 5 days. Air freight typically takes 8 days door to door and will cost about 25% of your total order price. Sea or surface freight takes about 4-5 weeks door to door and will typically cost 12% of your total order price. Prices are seasonal and change often.
