Approach China With Insight
Choose Your Export Port Carefully
China provides many port choices. Proximity to supplier must be weighed against ease of reaching the port and scheduling departures from it. Our experts can help you decide.
Plan Around Major Holidays
There are three major holidays that greatly affect manufacturing schedules and global trade flows. They are Chinese New Year in January, May Day, and Golden Week in early October.
Prepare for Typhoon Season
July to September is typhoon season when storms can cause ports to be temporarily closed. When conditions worsen, speed of information and agility can protect your supply chain.
One Seamless World. No More Black Box.
Look around your room. Everything you see was built all over the world. Yet, though we're more connected than ever, our ability to ship, store, and trade goods has remained fragmented. It takes up to 20 companies to move one shipment, each with its own systems and processes. Flexport’s Platform simplifies global trade by connecting everyone in the supply chain. We’re setting a new standard for global trade.
