The product price quoted in sourcing result is EXW (Ex Works) Price, which only includes supplier’s price and shipping fee to our warehouse in Yiwu, China. As to FOB and CIF terms, please check the following information.
#1 EXW (Ex Works)
Customers must arrange transportation all the way from our warehouse in Yiwu (200km away from Port Ningbo, China) to the final destination. And customers are responsible for all export process.
#2 FOB (Free on Board)
As the product price we quoted is EXW, customers need to pay extra FOB cost, depending on total volume of the shipment. The FOB fee is same as our forwarder quoted, no hidden fee.
We deliver cargo to the Port of Ningbo, handle the export process. Your own forwarder will manage shipping from Port Ningbo to your place.
We offer FOB Ningbo service for LCL (Less Than Container Load) and FCL (Full Container Load, 20GP, 40GP, 40HC containers).
You can inquire customer service about FOB fee of your cargo, when place order.
#3 CIF (Cost Insurance Freight)
We arrange delivery to the Port of Destination in customer’s country. But customer need to manage shipping from port to their warehouse, and do the import process.
We offer CIF service for both LCL and FCL. For detail cost, please contact our customer service.
You can inquire customer service about CIF fee of your cargo, when place order.
Our Advice: Usually forwarder will quote very low CIF fee in China, but charge a lot when you pick up cargo at the port of destination, much more than the total cost of using FOB term. If customer have reliable forwarder, FOB or EXW term will be better than CIF.
