There are three ways to transport these shopping trolley locks from China to Malaysia

1. Delivery by Express: Express means DHL, Fedex, UPS, and TNT. The Unit price for Express is expensive, but you don’t have to clear custom duty if the value is below 5000RMB or the weight is below 100KG. Hence will be more convenient and cost-effective. The goods will be delivered to your doorsteps in 3-9 days.

2. Deliver by air: It takes extra five days and the process is slower than express. The cost of by-air delivery is 30% cheaper than express but requires custom clearance. This means you need to pay extra for the customs clearance in China and then pay extra free and custom clearance in the country where our products will be delivered. So the overall cost gets higher than the express.

3. Deliver by LCL(Less than Container Loading) shipping: It usually takes 20-45 days to deliver. The cost is about half of the express but requires custom clearance. This adds in the extra cost at both ends. Hence the overall cost is approximately the cost of the express.

According to the above information, RedSheep suggests the customer deliver by Express because it’s both faster and cost-effective.  


Step 2: Confirm The Order

You can confirm your order by asking for an official preform invoice from RedSheep. Our sales team will send you that for your money transfer. If you decide to deliver the goods by Express on the first step, we suggest transfer via Western Union,  which cost less and transfer very fast.
