Shipping time and fees for Amazon FBA sea freight?
Amazon FBA is a type of service provided by Amazon’s global logistics network. There are two types of sea transportation: regular and expedited. The difference in transportation methods leads to differences in shipping costs and delivery time.
Expedited Sea Shipping

1. Required time: It takes about 4 weeks from the time the seller delivers the goods to the Amazon FBA warehouse until the goods are sent to the destination.
2. Transport route: The goods will be transported from relevant cities in China by air or sea to the main ports on the east coast of the United States such as Los Angeles, and then transported to specific FBA warehouses by rail.

Regular Sea Shipping
Regular sea shipping refers to directly transporting goods from the shipping origin in China to the FBA warehouse in the United States. Because its transportation method is more economical, it is more popular among industry professionals and sellers compared to expedited sea shipping. However, its delivery time is relatively long, which is reflected in the following two points:
1. Required time: Generally speaking, regular sea shipping takes about 30 days, but the specific time will vary depending on the specific transportation route and port of departure.
2. Transport route: The goods will be shipped directly from the shipping port in China to the FBA warehouse in the United States by sea.
In terms of transportation costs, regular sea shipping is relatively more cost-effective and is very suitable for sellers who want to reduce logistics costs.
To sum up, the shipping cost and delivery time of Amazon FBA sea freight depend on the specific transportation method. In general, regular sea freight is more economical, but it takes longer, usually around 30 days. Fast sea freight takes about 4 weeks, but the transportation cost is relatively higher. Therefore, when choosing Amazon FBA sea freight, sellers need to weigh their own actual situation.
