Shipping to China

Recognised as one of the largest and fastest growing economies in the world, we offer affordable, fast, and reliable parcel shipping and courier services to China.

With a population of more than 1.4 billion, over the last decade China has developed a diverse and vibrant economy that includes manufacturing, technology, tourism, and energy, making China the second largest importer of goods in the world.

With a rich cultural heritage, vast and beautiful landscapes, and some of the world’s most modern and impressive skyscrapers, being able to ship quickly and securely to China is now essential for many businesses and individuals.

Wherever you need to ship to in China, we offer affordable and competitive rates. A two-day delivery option is available, depending on the specific destination.


Shipping to China: our services

We’ve designed our courier services to China with flexibility and convenience in mind. Impact Express offers different shipping options, including Express Delivery (two working days) for main destinations, and Economy Delivery for non-time sensitive or heavier packages.

Sending a parcel of package to China with us is easy. Depending on whether you have a ‘business’ or ‘personal’ account, we can either arrange collection of your parcel from you, or you can drop it off at a designated location.

All parcels can be tracked on their journey with our online tracking tool. It will provide you with confidence and peace of mind: whether you’re shipping to the capital, Beijing, the coastal city of Tianjin in the north east, the famous and dynamic city of Shanghai in the east, or the quieter regions of the west and south.

Parcel packaging for shipping to China

We take a great deal of care with all packages shipped by us. Nonetheless, when shipping overseas, it’s always important to ensure your item is properly and securely packaged to prevent damage in transit.

Ensure the contents are carefully wrapped inside the parcel with bubble wrap, padding and secure tape. Then ensure that the outer packaging is robust and firmly secured with suitable tape. Make sure the label we have provided you with is properly and clearly completed, and then securely attached. We also recommend including a return address.
