When comparing exporting products from China during February and April 2020, and now, the overall process has gotten significantly better. Costs are lower, and transit times are no longer at an all-time high.
With that said, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected freight forwarding from China. The cost to ship is higher than normal, rates fluctuate weekly, as opposed to monthly and quarterly, and delays are common.
As of July 2020, ocean shipments have almost entirely gone back to normal, and air shipments have gone down in price, but continue to be much higher than a year ago, and are frequently delayed due to lack of planes leaving China.
At Guided Imports, our primary focus is helping customers get products shipped from China. Unlike other freight forwarders, we don’t attempt to setup offices all over the world, and ship from from anywhere, to anywhere. Our philosophy is simple, to be the best freight forwarding company for businesses purchasing from Chinese factories.
We have built a stress-free service built on top of cutting edge technology, so we can collect cargo from anywhere in China, and ship it all over the world. We operate as a Western owned and managed team, providing service, security and support at an American and European level

Guided Imports specializes in the following freight forwarding services:
It is our job to define to you which option we believe is best. When requesting a quotation, please provide us with all details of the shipment, when you need your products delivered, and what is more important to you; the price or speed.
With that information, we can begin defining a shipping plan and presenting your shipping options for you to consider.
Unlike large shipping companies, when a customer asks us for a quotation to ship their products through Guided Imports, we don’t rely on single-carrier contracts. We negotiate volume rates with a large number of individual shippers for all forms of transportation and locations. These shippers are consistently competing for our business, which strategically places us in an advantageous position.
We believe shipping plans require a well-thought-out process. We take into account cost, speed, security, and communication anytime we are generating a shipping quotation for our customers. This methodology allows us to pass cost savings down to the customer.
Freight forwarders hold the advantage of being able to plan and adjust the entire process of a shipment. If one leg of a journey turns out to be too expensive or inefficient, we have the luxury of identifying an alternative carrier or route to solve the problem.
The secret to any good logistics company is how they plan and organize their logistics routes. When answering a customer’s shipping request, some freight forwarders select the cheapest, regardless of the quality, and others choose the ones that require the least amount of internal planning.
At Guided Imports, we pride ourselves on how we choose our partners. Our tried and true process consistently allows us to be one of the most inexpensive options while maintaining our internal quality requirements that ensure customer satisfaction.
