Shipping from China to Somalia

Introduction to Somalia

Somalia is an East African country located on the Somali Peninsula, bounded by the Indian Ocean to the east, the Gulf of Aden to the north, and Ethiopia, Kenya, and Djibouti to the west.

Somalia is located south of the Gulf of Aden between the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean. It is the only sea route for cargo ships from all countries to enter and exit the Suez Canal through the Bab el-Mandeb Strait. Boasting the longest coastline on the African continent, Somalia has a population of approximately 15 million and its official languages are Somali and Arabic. The majority of the country’s people are Sunni Muslims.

Sea Freight from China to Somalia

If you are looking for a cost-effective way to ship goods from China to Somalia, then you should probably choose sea shipping. Maritime transportation refers to the mode of transportation of goods by sea, mostly using container ships, sometimes bulk carriers or ro-ro ships, oil tankers, etc. Shipping speed is slow, and it usually takes 25 to 40 days for a container from China to reach Somalia. However, in addition to its affordability, sea freight has obvious advantages over other modes of transportation, especially for bulk cargo or large equipment over long distances.

Sea Freight from China to Somalia

FCL (Full Container Load): Shipping a container filled specifically for one customer from China to Somalia. Generally speaking, we provide FCL shipping services to Somalia, including 20-foot containers and 40-foot containers (20GP, 40GP and 40HQ). Full container shipping is more cost effective.
LCL (Less Than Container Load): Sharing a container with other customers who are shipping goods to the same destination at the same time. Of course, due to the extra work (consolidation, unpacking, warehousing, paperwork, etc.), the final cost per unit is higher than the full box, and the shipping time is longer. LCL is a great option for small businesses. If your goods cannot fill the entire container, we can always provide LCL (less than one container shipping) service from China to Somalia.

Air freight from China to Somalia

Air freight is a popular option when shipping urgent cargo from China to Somalia.

Air freight prices are usually calculated based on the billable weight of the shipment, which is the higher of actual weight or dimensional weight. The volumetric weight is calculated by multiplying the length, width and height of the goods by the volumetric weight coefficient, which can also be calculated as (1cbm X 167). We can also negotiate prices with airlines to ensure you get the best price for your shipment. Peak seasons can result in higher rates, so it’s important to plan ahead and work with a logistics partner who can help you navigate the complexities of air freight.

With our help, you can ensure your shipment is properly packed, labeled and recorded to comply with airline regulations and prevent any damage during transport.
