Shipping to China

America Ship has shipped millions of packages in the past 12 months. Therefore, we have the enterprise level pricing agreements with FedEX, UPS, DHL, USPS, SF express, Estafeta, etc. We can ship worldwide with the lowest rates. We pass the savings to our customers. The following table lists the rates we offer to China from USA. We will provide you the shipping labels. You can drop to your local carrier, either FedEX, UPS or USPS.

Shipping cost to China from USA (regardless of documents, parcel or freight):

Weight (lbs)   China (mainland)         Hong Kong
1 $25.00 $25.00
2 $29.00 $29.50
3 $33.00 $34.00
4 $37.00 $38.50
5 $41.00 $43.00
6 $44.50 $47.00
7 $48.00 $51.00
8 $51.50 $55.00
9 $55.00 $59.00
10 $58.50 $63.00
x in [11-50] $28.50 + $3.00x $30.50 + $3.25x
x in [51-100] $53.50 + $2.50x $55.50 + $2.75x
x in [101-999] $103.50 + $2.00x $105.50 + $2.25x


The rates are more competitive than other options.  For example, if you weight is 100lbs, the cost will be only $303.50 to mainland China and $330.50 to Hong Kong.

  • Duty and tax is not included. The carrier will help do custom clearance. But duty will be paid by the receiver or the shipper.  Usually, if the total value is below RMB1000.00 ( equivalently USD $140.00) , it will be duty free.

  • The weight goes with billable weight, which is the bigger of absolute weight or dimensional weight.  Dimensional weight (lbs) = L x W x H (in)/139.

  • The main carrier we partner with is FedEx for shipments to China including Hong Kong. But since the pricing the carriers offers to America Ship is dynamic, we may choose UPS or DHL to ship your orders occasionally. Regardless which carrier, we honor the rates listed above. 

  • We provide the shipping label and you drop to FedEx  (or UPS, DHL).

Still confused?

Follow This Example

*Note: the billable weight is the greater one between actual weight or dimensional weight.

Dimensional weight (kg)= Length  x  Width x Height (cm) / 5000, or

Dimensional weight (lbs)= Length  x  Width x Height (inch) / 139  

For example, suppose you have a box with length = 45cm,  width = 30cm,  height  = 25cm, and its actual weight is 4.5kg.  The dimensional weight will be 45 x 30 x 25/5000= 6.75kg.  Since 6.75kg > 4.5kg, the billable weight will be 6.75kg.

Or, if you are looking to distribute your products to clients in Mexico, you can send bulk products to us. We save them in our warehouse on the border for free. Whenever you have an order, just log in and submit a shipment request with the “shipping to” address, product name, and quantity, and we will ship it. 

In case you have returned items from Mexico, you can have them returned to our warehouse in Matamoros, Mexico. We will bring them back to you in the USA.
