We're about miles inland, but the nerest port is a mile away..
(courtasy of the Manchester Ship Canal..)
As a rough idea on the sort of charges for shipping, this is a quote I
was given as a non-business customer China->UK about 2 years ago.
Obviously prices will have changed but might give an idea of what
sorts of things are charged:
LCL ex FOB Shenzhen quay to delivered Salford - non hazardous cargo
Seafreight $45.00w/m or minimum 1000kgs or 1cbm whichever is the greatest
UK THC GBP46.90w/2 or minimum
Port security GBP3.00
UK customs GBP35.00 up to 3 tariff headings
UK haulage Up to 1000kgs GBP84.00
per 1000kgs or part there of @ a conversion of 2.25m3 = 1000kgs
Weekly service - transit time 21 days quay to quay
