Time: how long do I need to get my product?

For proceeds of less than 100 kg and accepted by the network UPS weight / volume: obtaining a sample standard available from the manufacturer is often in 48 hours door to door.

– A large sample from China and maritime groupage take on average 5-6 weeks.
– The manufacture of non-standard sample depends on the reactivity and interest of the manufacturer: 10 days is the average time of manufacture.
– The production of a non-stock has an average of 25 days.
– The delivery of a container single customer has between 21 and 31 days at sea, then a few days customs in 2 countries, the increase in container truck and waiting for the boat. Clearly, it is difficult to do better than 5 weeks.
Two extreme cases for the delay, you can have a few days of non-standard products and large orders from China. If your specific project is ready to be manufactured, the manufacturing time in addition to the routing will average 60 days.
