Other advantage with sea shipment is that the second item cost less to ship and the third even less. Takes about 40-50 days and are delivered at the nearest custom warehouse. Shipment are charged by volume i.e. CBM (cubic meter). Minimum charge is for 1 CBM and if volume exceeds 1CBM, then charges are for the actual volume of the consignment.Though these big table tops and heavier shipment are cheaper to ship by sea but can also be shipped by air for which special rates are provided to us by the shipping agent.
