International Express Service V.S. Air Freight – What to choose?
International Express Service
International Express Service, also known as "International courier service", represents a "door-to-door" service where the courier company will pick up your goods at a designed pick-up address (usually it is the address of your supplier or your consolidator, in the country of origin) and deliver your goods at the delivery address (e.g., at your residence /customer's address/warehouse).
Generally speaking, as part of these deliveries, the courier company handles all the different steps necessary to get the goods from point of start to point of end, such as handling, transport/freight, customs clearance at origin and final destination, notification of payment of fees and duties, as well as all the administrative formalities required.
As for shipping time, it only takes around 3-8 working days.
Classic Air Freight
Air freight is about pure transportation itself. It is a so-called airport-to-airport service. That is to say, in contrast with express door-to-door service, it does not include additional services like pick-up and delivery, customs clearance, etc.
Since air freight concerns only shipments from airport to airport, which needs extra care and process to finish the whole shipping.
Transit time might take 1-7 days to transfer from the departure airport to the destination airport（A direct flight takes 1 day, but a transfer flight might take around 3-7 days, or even longer）. So, from the pick-up address to the goods’ arrival at your door, it might take around 3-15 business days.
What to choose
Generally, for small cargo, such as below 150kgs, such as we suggest you choose International Express Service； for bigger, we suggest you choose air freight, although it is from airport to airport, we can also make it a “door-to-door” service, that is we arrange all the process.
But it is not a Golden Rule, Freight forwarder will choose you suitable way and shipping solution based on cargo data, shipping urgency, and shipping cost.
Document needed in International Express Service
Commercial Invoice (CI)
When purchasing goods in China for importation, the seller will give clients a commercial invoice, to show that client has purchased a certain type and amount of goods from him/her. It details the agreement between the seller and the buyer, including the terms involved in the sale and purchase of the goods.
In express service, the invoice is a paramount document. In most situations, it is the solely needed document when clients want to ship from China.
There are some key elements should be listed in the invoice:
1.Shipper and Consignee information (Names, Addresses, Zip codes, and detailed addresses are required)
2.Product name with HS CODE, Material, and Purpose/Usage
3.Unit price, Quantities, and total price
Commercial Invoice FYI
Cost of International Express Service from China
Shipping cost is a crucial factor to consider when opting for international express shipping from China.
There are some basic parameters to check the express costs from China, and with the below information, freight forwarders will be able to quote to you.
1.Product name and types
It is important to know the product description because some products are limited to shipping, such as liquid, powder, batteries, brand products, etc. And for these special products, a special express channel is needed.
As for the over-weight product, an extra over-weight fee might be needed.
3.Size and Volume
As for the over-length product, an extra over-length fee might be needed. And it will help us to calculate chargeable weight if size/volume is available.
Some addresses are remote addresses, if so, extra remote-address costs will occur.
In terms of unit price in shipping, it depends on the chargeable weight level. The heavier, the cheaper per kilo.
However, from what I have mentioned above, it is obvious that there might be extra costs for some specific situations. However, it is difficult to explain the costs here, because every express company has its standard and fluctuating costs. If you want to know more, please contact JIKEship experts, we will be glad to help!

Guide to calculating chargeable/billable weight in International Express Service
To start with, we need to know three kinds of weight mentioned in International Express Shipping
Chargeable weight will be the greater one between above-mentioned the dimensional weight and actual weight.
E.g., Now we have a box in the size of 60 CM *50CM *40CM, gross weight 20KGS
Then, we will know that：
Gross Weight/Actual Weight=20KGS
Volume Weight/Dimensional weight=60*50*40/5000=24KGS
G.W.20KGS＜V.W24KGS, So, Chargeable Weight will be Volume Weight 24kgs
* JIKEship also has Digital Table to calculate Chargeable Weight for numerous packages. You just need to fill in the size and gross weight of the packages, then the total chargeable weight will be available.
