Overseas Shipping to Hong Kong
Hong Kong has become one of the most popular destinations for relocation due to the economic viability and business opportunities. It is also one of the most expensive cities to live in as an expat. That aside, Hong Kong is still thriving and it’s the biggest cosmopolitan city in its region.
The location in Southeast China on the Pearl River Delta makes Hong Kong a strategic point for all types of shipping and international trade into the South. It’s actually the world’s 3rd busiest port in terms of total containers serviced. The different sized containers can carry anything from commercial goods to vehicles.
Since 1997, Hong Kong has been recognized as a special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China. This is a major reason for its autonomy and is particularly important for those shipping goods internationally as it relates to moving and relocation. Both the economic and political systems differ from mainland China as well which affect trade and the accompanying customs duties on imported items.
With more than 5,000 shipments, we have a lot of experience handling international cargo to all the major cities. Victoria harbor is known for its deep waters, allowing for roll-on roll-off vessels to transport your vehicles to Hong Kong as an alternative to shipping them via container.
