We are in the process of getting quotes for our very first product.
One of the suppliers quoted me the following shipping cost: $3,680 door to door using DHL, $1,850 Air Freight to ORD (Chicago) and $500 to San Diego Port – in the 2nd and 3rd option my freight forwarder has to take it from there.
This is the cost for 1000 unit shipment, with each unit weighing just over 1 lb. (about 0.5kg). So basically, $3.68/pc. by express shipping, and 0.5/pc. by sea shipping!!
Another supplier has quoted be about $1.6/pc. by express.
Am I missing something here, or have others seen this before?
Please note, I’ve given them a zip code in the US for the items to be express shipped to.
Any thoughts/advise would be much appreciated.
