Shipping from China to Belgium


Shipping from China to Belgium

There are several international logistics services available to transport goods from China to Belgium. Here are some of the common options:


Air freight from China to Belgium,

This is a popular choice for businesses that require fast and reliable shipping. Several airlines offer direct flights from major Chinese cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou to Brussels, Belgium's capital.

If you want to receive your cargo as quickly as possible, air freight is the way to go, as it will usually take only a few hours before it arrives at the destination airport. The whole process is 3-5 business days.

When choosing air freight, you have to get familiar with the terms Special Cargo and General Cargo:

  • Special Cargo applies to “products” that require special handling, such as live animals, food products as well as highly valuable or flammable items.

  • General Cargo is a term used for normal cargo. However, all goods must meet safety and specified requirements.

Bear in mind that the shorter time and better security come with a higher price. The shipping cost is calculated based on the cargo’s dimensional weight and gross weight. Therefore, if your products are very heavy, you might want to consider a different type of transport.

  • Main cargo airports in China

  • Shanghai Pudong International Airport

  • Beijing Capital International Airport

  • Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport

  • Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport

Sea freight from China to Belgium,

Shipping by sea is another option for transporting goods from China to Belgium. Major seaports in China include Shanghai, Ningbo, and Shenzhen, with the Port of Antwerp in Belgium serving as a major hub for European sea trade.

As it proves to be very cost-effective, sea freight is one of the most popular shipping methods. It is also the best option when it comes to importing a large number of goods. It is most suitable for goods that need to be transported in containers. However, it might get complicated for those who do not have vast knowledge about sea shipping.

First, you must choose between FCL (Full Container Load) and LCL (Low Container Load). FCL stands for using the container’s total capacity and is recommended for cargo that takes up a lot of space, while LCL means sharing a container with other importers/exporters. It is more suitable for transporting smaller goods in lower amounts.

Although sea freight is relatively cheap, it is less time-efficient. Therefore, it is not recommended in cases when you need to receive cargo in a short time. In sea shipping, volume is more important than weight, so if you are looking to ship heavier goods, this is your way to go.

Main cargo seaports in China

  • Port of Shanghai

  • Port of Shenzhen

  • Port of Ningbo-Zhoushan

  • Port of Guangzhou

  • Port of Qingdao

Rail freight from China to Belgium

Rail freight services from China to Europe have grown in popularity in recent years due to shorter transit times than sea freight and lower costs than air freight. The Yiwu-Madrid rail link, for example, passes through Belgium and offers connections to other European countries.

Between China and Belgium, railway freight is now available as a complement to the traditional sea and air freight. Most clients had faced this dilemma, China-Belgium sea freight takes too long, while air cargo service costs too much. Now railway freight is the perfect alternative, 

In 2019, the first freight train from Yiwu, China arrived in Liege, Belgium, creating a new link between Europe and China. 

Its launch marks the beginning of a new era for the China Railway Express.
