FAQs-Shipping from China to Turkey

Regarding goods transportation, multiple transportation options are available between China and Turkey, including sea freight, air freight, and courier services. The extent of trade cooperation between the two countries depends to some extent on international trade agreements and bilateral cooperation agreements. When transporting goods, it's important to adhere to the regulations and requirements of both countries, including export and import licenses, customs clearance procedures, etc.

--What is the current shipping time from China to Turkey?


Air courier services such as DHL and FedEx from China to Turkey take approximately 3 to 7 days for delivery.

Sea Freight

Shipping by sea is considered the most cost-effective option for shipments from China to any country. On average, shipping to Turkey takes around 4 to 6 weeks.

Shipping times can be reduced to 1 week or more when all border controls in Turkey are expedited.

Air Freight

Shipping by air from China to Turkey typically takes 1 to 8 days. If you opt for expedited delivery, it comes with a higher fee, but you can deliver your products within 2-4 days.

--How much does air freight from China to Turkey cost?

For air freight, the cost is approximately $4 to $8 per kilogram.

Air freight is a fast transportation method suitable for medium to small quantities of goods. While the cost is higher, it allows for quick delivery to the destination.

--What are the advantages of air freight for transporting goods?

Air freight offers several advantages as a fast and reliable method of transporting goods.

Firstly, its ability to deliver goods to their destination within a short timeframe makes it particularly suitable for urgent delivery needs, reducing the risk of delivery delays.

Secondly, its extensive global coverage network allows goods to reach remote or hard-to-reach locations. Real-time cargo tracking provides higher visibility, while shorter transit times reduce the risk of goods being damaged or compromised, thus offering a safer and more efficient transportation option. 

However, due to its higher cost, decisions should be made based on factors such as the nature of the goods, delivery time requirements, and budget considerations.

--How is the chargeable weight for goods sent from China to Turkey calculated by air?

shipping to turkey

Determining the chargeable weight of goods is based on comparing the actual weight (gross weight) and the volumetric weight. The freight charges are calculated based on the volumetric weight when considering goods transported by air from China to Turkey. The step-by-step procedure for this calculation is outlined below:

Step 1: Calculate the volume of the shipment.

Measure the length, width, and height of the goods in centimeters, and then use the following formula to calculate the volume: Volume = Length × Width × Height, where the volume is measured in cubic centimeters.

Step 2: Calculate the volumetric weight.

Divide the volume value obtained in Step 1 by 6,000 to obtain the volumetric weight of the goods. This value represents the space occupied by the goods in kilograms of actual weight, with the unit being kilograms.

Considering both the actual and volumetric weights, the final chargeable weight will be determined by selecting the larger of the two values as the basis for calculating the freight charges. Through this calculation method, a more accurate reflection of the space occupied by the goods and the actual weight can be achieved, thereby reasonably determining the freight charges for goods sent from China to Turkey.

--What are the size restrictions for air shipping to Turkey?

Airlines have shipment regulations, which you must know when shipping to Turkey. Similarly, different countries have different rules for shipments.

When transporting goods between China and Turkey, you should be able to transport items with a maximum dimension of 164 centimeters on a pallet. If you need to transport items larger than this size, you may need to split the shipment into multiple boxes. Please contact us for a quote if you have any questions.

--What is the cost of FCL shipping to Turkey?

For a 20-foot container, the cost ranges from approximately $1,500 to $2,000.

Full container shipping suits large quantities of goods occupying an entire container. The cost depends on the container size and type of goods.

For a 40-foot container, the cost ranges from approximately $3,000 to $4,000.

A 40-foot container is suitable for even larger quantities of goods, such as a full container load. While the cost is higher, it's suitable for large-scale shipments.

--What is the cost of LCL shipping to Turkey?

For LCL, the cost is approximately $50 per kilogram.

LCL combines multiple customers' goods into a single container, which is suitable for smaller volumes. This approach can lower costs but slightly extend delivery times.
