Delivery of fasteners and hardware from China by sea and by rail in 20-foot containers. In one container can be loaded 24 tons of hardware. Based on our practice usually one 20-foot container and a minimum party of Order in the factory in which the economically advantageous importation.
When it comes to non-standard fasteners and stainless steel wire products, this amount can be considerably less.
To minimize the risk of downtime of the container on the railroad in anticipation of “a pair of” customs brokers recommend the order for 2 containers.
What can be shipped items into one container?
The container can be loaded with up to 7-10 items of hardware and every position on several dimensions. The lower position of the container, the lower rates can be obtained from the manufacturer.
Shipping and customs clearance of hardware and fasteners from China.

Sea container goes to Vladivostok and Nakhodka, and then by train to your city. If you are close to Novorossiysk and St. Petersburg, it is cheaper to send a container by sea directly to Novorossiysk and St. Petersburg. Shipping from Shanghai to Moscow through the Far East takes an average of 30 days. If the container is sent by sea to St. Petersburg and Novorossiysk, it may take 30-35 days.

In Russia we have reliable partners – brokers, who help us in the delivery and customs clearance issues.

What risks may arise when dealing with China?
Risks when importing hardware and fasteners wholesale from China may arise both in China and in Russia. Let’s look at them:
Risks in China
Non-delivery of goods.
As a rule, “to get the money and disappear,” can only just too impure into the hands of the supplier, which, unfortunately, you can find many on the Internet, including on the Alibaba website. These companies lure customers on hardware cost, significantly lower than the market. To avoid this, you need to be convinced of reliability of the supplier before you translate it prepaid. Therefore, we recommend that you work only with reliable manufacturers.
Underload goods or goods of poor quality.
Even if you work directly with the factory, there is always a risk that the supplier will save or on the total weight or the material from which the hardware are made to reduce the cost of production. To avoid this, we recommend that you carry out quality control of hardware prior to loading.
Delay timing of production.
Unfortunately, the delay in the timing of production is the bane of most suppliers. Be careful, especially ordering goods in the season and added to the approximate delivery time more time per week. Maximum avoid delays in the timing of production can only be constantly reminding about themselves and about the importance of timely delivery.
Risks in Russia.
broker service cost (shipping and customs clearance) grows after the container leaves the port in China.

This product comes from a port in China and the broker then you suddenly announce that the rates increased (customs management has changed, the new rules, railway tariffs have increased and more 1000 and is one reason that you will tell the broker). To avoid this you need to initially work with the appropriate customs broker.
The delay time of delivery.
This, unfortunately, often happens. By rail on one platform sends two 20-foot containers, so if you sent only one, it will be “wait a couple” at the station. If a customs broker small shipments at your direction, the delay will be possible. This can be avoided by discussing the possibility of delays and the responsibility for it in advance.
