What shipping methods are available?
There are three shipping methods available from India:
Ocean Freight: This is the most economical way of shipping goods but takes about 30-45 days for US/Canadian destinations and 22-30 days for European destinations. This option is ideal for large shipments that are not time sensitive .
Air Freight(Port to Port): This option is the most widely used option ensuring low shipping costs with faster deliveries. This method costs more than Ocean Freight but substantially less than Air Express. The lead time is typically 7-12 days depending on the carrier.
Air Express(Door to Door): This is the fastest shipping method with high shipping costs. The advantages of this option include door-to-door delivery with inexpensive and hassle-free Customs clearance. This is a good option for time sensitive and relatively smaller shipments. Delivery Time 4-6 Days
Besides shipping and insurance charges what other charges should I take into consideration?
Besides Freight and insurance, you're also responsible for paying the Customs Duties (typically in the range of 2.8%-4% on leather saddlery and harness). In addition, if your shipment is arriving via Ocean or Air Freight, you will also incur the Customs Clearance charges. These charges are about $300 per shipment if you hire a Clearing Agent. In most cases, you can clear the shipments yourself with the Customs and save this expense. For Air Express shipments, the carrier clears your shipment for you and charge a nominal clearance charge in addition to the Customs Duty, if any.Our Sales Rep in your respective Countries Can walk you through complete process.In some cases they can import the goods on your behalf and charge a nominal fee for that.Contact us today if you would like that arrangement.
