I’ve been looking into importing about 1000kg of weight plates from China recently and I found a manufacturer that has really great prices with shipping included. I did a lot of research and it says that I need to get a freight forwarder to ensure that my pallet comes gets cleared through customs and is sent my residence. I’ve done quotes online but a lot of them take a while to get back and I was just wondering if anyone experienced could tell me how much something like this could cost? Are there any particularly good or bad freight forwarders that I should go for/avoid or should I look at someone local? I’m extremely new to importing anything over 30 kg and appreciate any advice or answers!
