Important points in sea freight from China to Ethiopia:
Cargo arrival notifications are issued based on the consignees addresses provided on the Bills of Lading. In order to enable us to serve you with quick and timely cargo arrival notification, please make sure that your correct and full address is clearly documented in the B/L.
All goods for Ethiopia are accepted on transit basis and the amount of storage period allowed is limited. If consignees fail to clear their cargo timely, the port may confiscate the unlearned goods. Direct Delivery Cargoes are goods that have to be discharged from ship on to trucks for direct transport to final destinations.
Transit Time of sea freight from China to Ethiopia
To ensure the timely arrival of goods, it is important to know the lead-time needed for arranging shipment from Port of Origin to Destination.
The lead-time depends on the location of port of loading. Some ports are on-line served and are sailed to frequently and delivery time is relatively fast and short.
Some ports are off line and availability of sailing is limited and also served on indirect basis by re-routing cargo through different connecting points. In such cases, even if there was geographic proximity, the delivery time could be longer and late. So you can roughly estimate it as around 36 days.
