Sea Freight Shipping from China to Korea

China is about 7,775 km away from the Korea but traversing this distance may take longer owing to the sea routes defined by water bodies.

Sea freight is determined by the location of ports to be used and the nature of consignment to be transported.

Very bulky consignment is normally shipped via sea.

Although it takes time to reach the final destination, it has proven to be the cheapest ever.

Before choosing this shipment method, he/she must be well acquainted with different ports both in China and Korea.
