Freight from China to Thailand

Best Freight Shipping Services from China to Thailand

Trade between China and Thailand date back centuries. Today, the trade relationship between China and Thailand is stronger than ever. Bilateral trade between the two countries reached over $80 billion in 2020. China is Thailand’s largest export market, with products such as electronics, machinery, rubber, and agricultural products being the main exports to China. Thailand imports a wide range of goods from China, including electronics, machinery, textiles, and chemicals.

Geographical proximity is the key factor which drives the trade relationship between China and Thailand. Thailand serves as a gateway to Southeast Asia for Chinese companies looking to expand their presence in the region, while China provides Thailand with access to one of the world’s largest consumer markets.

The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is also strengthening trade ties between the two countries. The BRI, launched by China in 2013, aims to enhance connectivity and cooperation between countries along the ancient Silk Road routes. Thailand has been a key partner in the BRI, with Chinese investments in infrastructure projects such as the high-speed rail link between Bangkok and Nakhon Ratchasima.

When it comes to shipping cargo from China to Thailand, there are two options available: by sea or by air.

Sea Freight

The main ports in China that handle cargo shipments to Thailand include Shanghai Port (CNSHA), Ningbo Port (CNNGB), and Shenzhen Port (CNSZX).
These ports are well-equipped to handle large volumes of cargo and offer a range of shipping options to suit different requirements.
In Thailand, the main ports that receive cargo from China include Laem Chabang Port (THLCH) and Bangkok Port (THBKK).

There are several shipping lines that operate between China and Thailand, including Maersk Line, COSCO Shipping, and Evergreen Line. They offer regular services and competitive rates for transporting cargo between the two countries.

The time of transportation for sea shipments can vary depending on the specific route and the shipping line chosen, but typically takes around 7–14 days.

Air Freight

The main airports in China that handle international cargo flights to Thailand include Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG), Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN), and Shenzhen Baoan International Airport (SZX).

In Thailand, the main airports that receive cargo from China include Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) — one of the biggest airports in Southeast Asia and the newest of Bangkok’s two international airports, and Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) which serves as a secondary hub for mostly low-cost flights.

China Southern Airlines, Thai Airways, and Air China Cargo are the usual airlines that operate cargo flights between China and Thailand. They offer efficient and reliable services for transporting goods by air, with a typical transportation time of around 1–3 days.
