Part 2.Ocean Freight From China shipping to Andorra

  • Can Andorra do sea freight?

Andorra is a landlocked country located on the border of France and Spain in southwestern Europe. The nearest maritime port is Barcelona.

  • Logistics Program Process

China Ports - Barcelona - Andorra.

Jike suggested arranging goods through Spanish advantages, transiting from Spanish trucks into Andorra. And arrange customs clearance issues in Andorra.

Andorra is the best tax haven in its location, in the heart of Western Europe, bordering France and Spain, and Andorra can very well avoid various taxes in Western European countries. Not only does Andorra have much fewer taxes than other countries, but the tax rate is also very low. For example, VAT 4.5%, corporate income tax 5%-10%, personal income tax 0%, inheritance tax 0%, no rich people's tax and asset tax and so on. The tax rates of other Western European countries can be said to be "almost free" compared to those of other Western European countries.

  • Container shipping services

You can ship the goods by FCL and LCL. There are many factors you need to consider when shipping from China to Liechtenstein.

FCL (Full container loading) makes sense if you are shipping large quantities of goods and can fill containers.

Another advantage of full container loading is that your items are stored separately from other importers, which also means they are safer.

FCL is also faster than LCL as containers do not need to undergo any LCL or LCL process at the port.

As the name implies, this method of transportation uses complete shipping containers and is therefore suitable for at least that amount of cargo.

If you have fewer individuals than containers, you can use consolidation or a strategy of bundling multiple orders into one container. Flat-rate pricing makes FCL shipping a good deal.

LCL (less than container load), on the other hand, is when your cargo shares space with other cargo in the container.

This applies to small quantities and where air freight is too expensive. Since the quantity is less than one container, the cost will be lower than FCL shipping.

However, waiting for LCL delivery may involve a small additional period of time involving merging (packing) and unpacking (unpacking) your goods with other container items before departure and after arrival.

  • The difference between the cost of LCL and FCL

**a)**Less Container Load (LCL)

Less Than Container Load (LCL) means that the carrier (or agent) accepts a consignment of less than a full container of small ticket freight, and then sorts it according to the nature of the goods and the destination. The cargo to the same destination is consolidated into a certain number of containers. As there are different owners of goods in a box together, so it is called consolidation. The opposite is true for full containers.

LCL requires special attention and we (that is, freight forwarders) to explain the issue of time: because LCL can be divided into straight or transshipment, straight refers to the LCL container of goods in the same port loading and unloading, before the goods arrive at the port of destination without unpacking, that is, the goods for the same discharge port. This kind of LCL service is short, convenient and fast, generally strong LCL company will provide only this kind of service. Transferring refers to the container is not the same destination port of the goods, need to unpack in the middle of the unloading or transfer ship. The time limit of transshipment will be relatively slow, because it is necessary to unload and unload the container in the transshipment port, such as transshipment flights, so we have to make clear whether we can accept transshipment when we ask for quotation with the freight forwarder.

b) Full Container Load (FCL)

A full container is a full container, known as FCL (full container load). A full container is the opposite of a LCL. A full container has only one consignor to transport the goods to the destination port, so the whole transport process is relatively easier than a LCL. A full container load is a shipment in which the consignor is responsible for packing, counting, stowing and sealing the cargo. The unpacking of full containers after transport to the port of destination is generally handled by the consignee.

The whole container we need to pay special attention to is the whole container and LCL compared, there will be an extra container, LCL is directly to a designated warehouse, by the freight forwarder to our unified arrangements to load a container, while the whole container will need us to pick up the container to our factory loading, if the freight forwarder does not provide us with customs clearance and towing services, we have to find their own good help in advance to do customs clearance and towing agent. We will arrange for loading and customs clearance. Be sure to allow enough time for customs clearance and subsequent preparation.

The whole container is not the same as the lump sum container, we must get the container number and seal number before we can declare the goods, so we'd better set aside 3-4 days for customs clearance, especially during the weekend. Generally speaking, customs release is around one day, but no one can say that it will be smooth every time, so it is best to load our containers 3-4 working days in advance. In case the customs clearance is late, our containers will not be ready in time for the shipment, causing a lot of unnecessary problems.

  • Difference between LCL and full container storage

Customs clearance is more complicated and takes longer than for a full container. As the whole container customs clearance is our own one cargo in the customs declaration, will not say that the existence of the goods through the customs clearance of the other family does not pass and delay the timeframe. The LCL is different, as long as the container of goods in one of the cargo documents out of order, the export customs will not be released to the goods. Because the export customs must do a good job on the container out of the customs seal before allowing the container to leave the country. The same container, any of the goods do not clear customs, will inevitably affect the timely export and transport of other goods.
