As the factors of the epidemic in the past two years have caused difficulties in import and export trade, not only the transportation cost is higher than before the epidemic, but also the time limit is unstable. Today, I would like to briefly introduce the FBA shipping time from China to Canada and the larger shipping ports in Canada.
What are the ports of Canada Shipping? The most famous ports are the following:

The distribution of warehouses in Canada is mainly divided into four series: YVR, YYZ, YYC and YOW:
Introduction of YVR Hi-Card Line
First shipping (13-18 days) + customs clearance (3-5 days) + arrival of the container (2-3) + appointment delivery (2-7 days), the overall timeliness: about 20-30 days after sailing .
YYZ sea card line introduction
First sea freight (13-18 days) + Vancouver to Toronto railway transfer (7 days) + customs clearance (3-5 days) + scheduled delivery (2-7 days), the overall time limit: about 25-35 days after sailing .
YYC sea card line introduction
First journey by sea (13-18 days) + Vancouver to Calgary railway transshipment (3-5 days) + customs clearance (3-5 days) + scheduled delivery (2-7 days), the overall timeliness: 20- after sailing 30 days.
Introduction of YOW Haika Line
First sea freight (13-18 days) + Vancouver to Toronto railway transfer (7 days) + customs clearance (3-5 days) + scheduled delivery (2-7 days), the overall time limit: about 25-35 days after sailing From the introduction of the dedicated line above, there are several key factors that affect the timeliness, namely the first journey by sea and rail transit time. As for the appointment delivery, unless it is affected by the weather in Canada and Amazon's warehouse is bursting, the appointment delivery time is basically the same.
The above is a brief introduction of the relatively large ports in Canada and the introduction of the special line of Canadian sea cards. Everything has two sides, both advantages and disadvantages. The timeliness is fast and stable, so the price is bound to be higher. For sellers, how to choose logistics channels, I don’t think they should think about the timeliness in isolation. They should choose the logistics that is suitable for them based on comprehensive planning such as shipping schedule, factory progress, and sales data.
