International Freight Forwarding between Ningbo and Australia - Ningbo city and business district

Freight Forwarding Services Ningbo Australia

Ningbo is one of China’s leading manufacturing cities turning out consumer and industrial goods. As a leading manufacturing city it is an ideal source of product for Australian importers. Are you an importer? Do you ship product from Ningbo to Australia? Or are you considering sourcing product from the area?

The logistics and regulations can be complicated unless you have the knowledge and experience to understand the local network. An international freight forwarder, like BCR, uses their knowledge and connections to make sense of the complexity and get your product shipped reliably, by sea or air. BCR specialise in full container loads (FCL) or can consolidate less than a container load (LCL) for cost-effective shipping.

BCR offers freight forwarding services between Ningbo and Australia including air freight forwarding and sea freight forwarding.


Ningbo, China – a manufacturing city

Ningbo is a city located in China’s north-eastern Zhejiang province. It is a large centre with extensive manufacturing and a large sea port that can service imports and exports from all over the world.

Being a Chinese city, it is covered by the China Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA) which makes it an ideal location to source product for shipment to Australia.


Infrastructure in Ningbo

The city is serviced by the Port of Ningbo-Zhoushan, which annually moves 889 million ton of cargo . This makes it one of the world’s busiest ports. It connects through to 90 countries and over 560 ports worldwide.1

Businesses that want their freight to arrive fast can book air freight that is serviced by Ningbo Lishe International Airport. The airport is one of the busiest in China and is connected to factories via the city’s road and rail network.

Navigating the complex task of moving product from the factory and on to the final destination can be overwhelming. For businesses in Australia that wish to benefit from Chinese-Australia Free Trade Agreement, it is even more challenging. For years, BCR has partnered with businesses in Australia to offer an end-to-end supply chain solution.

International cargo ships frequently depart Ningbo going to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.


Goods imported to Australia from Ningbo

Ningbo has a significant economy with exports making up 3 per cent of the city’s growth. The city’s factories produce many products including:

  • Technical products
  • Textiles
  • Clothes
  • Industrial products
  • Consumer goods

Intercultural differences between China and Australia and the language barrier may cause challenges that are difficult to manage. BCR has an extensive international global network and this means we work with the ideal partner for each country and culture to achieve the best outcome and overcome common challenges when working with Chinese businesses.

BCR has the experience that Australian businesses sourcing product from Ningbo can rely on to ensure it is delivered efficiently and reliably.

Ningbo imports raw materials from Australia that are needed to supply the city’s manufacturers – the major exports are:

  • Iron ore
