Less than Container loads (LCL) both import and export are shipped via Dublin port at present. However, it is very important to note that when you are shipping LCL from China to Ireland (Ordering 2-3-4 pallets from China) that you arrange it via us.
When you are shipping of the goods from China via LCL we can agree all the charges with you in advance. Goods are shipped on an FOB basis.
If you buy on an CIF basis they will charge you for the cost of the transport to Ireland (which is included in your item price). You have no control over what they are charging for this. When the goods arrive in Dublin on a CIF basis the local charges can be 3 times what are charged on an FOB/Agreed with Greyhound basis. For this reason, we would always recommend that you but FOB China and arrange via Greyhound Express. It saves money.
