What are the shipping routes in Canada? What is the statute of limitations?Shipping from China to Canada usually takes the ships of the three shipping alliances, OA/THE/2M. OA alliance includes COSCO/EMC/CMA/OOCL.THE alliance includes: YML/ONE/HMM/HPL2M alliance includes: MSK/MSC. The routes chosen for the export of cross-border e-commerce goods to Canada are generally relatively short. Among the three alliances, the OA alliance has a shorter shipping schedule, followed by THE and 2M, and of course the price is relatively higher. So what are the shipping routes in Canada? What is the price and time limit?
The ports of departure in China include Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Ningbo, Hong Kong, and Kaohsiung. The west coast of Canada calls at Vancouver Port and Prince Rupert Port. Most of the cargo will berth at the Port of Vancouver, which is the largest port in Canada and accepts most of the e-commerce cargo ships from China. However, there are relatively few ships calling at Port of Prince, and the manpower and material resources of Port of Prince are limited, and the loading and unloading capacity of Port of Prince is far less than that of Vancouver.
Every shipping company on the FBA shipping route from China to Canada is not much different, unlike the US FBA shipping, which is much faster than the Matson Clipper. Canadian shipping is either the ship of the OA alliance, or the ship of THE, 2M alliance. The OA alliance will call at a port in Kaohsiung halfway, while THE and 2M will call at two ports in Shanghai and Busan, which is relatively slow. The OA alliance schedule is about 13 days, and the THF and 2M alliance time limit is about 17 days; in fact, the overall time limit of the OA alliance YVR series FBA warehouse can be 20-30 days, while others may take about 40 days, so how to choose is up to you. See how the seller measures it.
1. Ship's locker
The shipping company generally releases more space, such as 10-20% more space, especially when the space is tight. In some special cases, some customers' cargo is too late to board the ship, and it can also ensure that the cargo ship can sail with a full load. The extra cabinets were thrown off by the shipping company and went to the same alliance ship. Generally, it will be delayed for about a week, and the probability of being dumped again is relatively low for cabinets that have been dumped to the next water.
2. Voyage skipping port
Due to special reasons, the shipping company skips this port, directly loads the ship at the next port, and then arrives at the destination port. This is called port jumping. For example, a shipping company’s route is to sail from Yantian and stop at Shanghai Port halfway. However, the epidemic situation in Shanghai Port was discovered and the ship was not allowed to call at Hong Kong. The ship skipped Shanghai Port and sailed directly to Vancouver.
3. The boat leaves/arrives late
Due to special reasons, the ship sailed late at the port of departure and arrived at the port late. Such as typhoon, heavy snow and other reasons, the ship came back late, or could not reach the port, delaying the ship schedule.
4. Force majeure
For example, in military exercises, cargo ships cannot sail on time or have to detour, encounter typhoons or heavy rains on the way, and the ship misses at sea.
