TIME OF MONTH TO BOOK FROM VIETNAM TO USA

     Carriers can introduce increases to shipping charges, called General Rate Increases (GRIs) at the start of each month. However, toward the middle of the month as they try to fill supply on vessels, they often lower these prices. That means booking during the latter two weeks of the month can often save you money.

TIPS FOR KEEPING DOWN COSTS AND SHIPPING TIME FROM VIETNAM TO USA

  • Book in Advance: Shipping by sea is the cheapest, but also takes the longest. Booking in advance when you can saves you money– and cuts out the stress if delays arise.
  • Ship off-peak: When carriers get busy, both shipping prices and transit times go up. Shipping during off-peak seasons whenever you can.
  • Get your documentation in order: Having your documentation in order can make all the difference when it comes to clearing customs quickly.
  • Know your HS Codes: A lot of shippers are surprised by how much customs fees can affect business costs. Do your research in advance to get budget effectively.
  • Compare quotes from different providers: Quotes is variable, so check out offers from different providers before making final decision.
  • Understand what’s included in your quote: Is your quote port to port or door to door? What service does it include? Know what you’re paying for to avoid getting hit with surprise fees.
  • Pay attention to the validity of your quote.
