BULK CARGO FROM CHINA TO PAKISTAN：
Bulk cargo refers to the inbound and outbound cargo which is basically loaded into vehicles, ships, planes and other means of transport in its natural form without packing. Mainly for grain, ore, cement, crude oil, scrap iron and steel, such as block, granular, powdery and liquid bulk cargo. In order to speed up customs clearance and smooth the international transportation, China customs generally does not inspect bulk goods, and only allows them to be released after accepting the declaration and completing relevant tax formalities.
Surcharges generally fall into the following categories:
- Surcharge added due to different characteristics of goods, such as overweight surcharge, extra length surcharge, washing fee, etc.
- Surcharge added due to different conditions of ports, such as port surcharge, port congestion fee, post-selection fee, direct flight surcharge, etc.
- Surcharge temporarily increased for other reasons, such as fuel surcharge, depreciation surcharge, etc.
In fact, surcharges are numerous, far more than the above several.It is worth noting that some surcharges, such as port congestion charges, account for a large proportion of freight charges, ranging from as little as 10 per cent to as much as 100 per cent, or more than twice as much, as compared to base charges. Therefore, when calculating freight charges, the calculation of surcharge should not be ignored.

Take an example, let’s take the following situation :
Carton size: W: 145, H: 80, L, 65, for a total volume of 0.754m3. 0.754 * 167 = 125.9kgs. The volumetric weight of your carton is to be 129.9 kgs.
Your carton real weight is 98kgs，so this weight is higher than the real weight, we will use 125.9kgs as chargeable weight ，when give you a quote.
Please, bear in mind that the weight is not the only factor affecting the quotation.
The proportion of weight and volume is much different from different airlines .we will quote you on a case by case.
Does Pakistan import need to provide FTA certificate of origin or CO?
Exporting to Pakistan can handle general certificate of origin CO and China Pakistan FTA certificate of origin.
The general certificate of origin CO is a document proving that the goods are originated in a certain country or region and enjoy the normal tariff (most favored nation) treatment of the importing country.
Applicable to countries and regions around the world. The CO certificate of origin is only proof of the exporting country of the goods, and there is a discount when it is not possible to clear the customs to foreign customers;
The China-Pakistan FTA Certificate of Origin gives 90% of the products with preferential tariffs. These products must comply with the China-Pakistan Free Trade Zone Rules of Origin.
In other words, the China-Pakistan FTA certificate of origin can have tariff reductions and exemptions, and if the export products meet the China-Pakistan Free Trade Zone policy.
What are the price of CO and FTA and the difference:
Prices are: 35-40USD
FTA: Issued by the Commodity Inspection Bureau
CO: CCPIT （China Council for the Promotion of International Trade） issued
How to apply for the FTA Certificate of Origin?
The FTA certificate of origin needs to be registered with the Commodity Inspection Bureau before it can be applied for the certificate according to the normal procedure.
The enterprise that has already filed the record can submit the information directly to the commodity inspection bureau for review.
How to deal with FTA if you have not filed with the Commodity Inspection Bureau?
It doesn’t matter, Bestforworld can help you solve it. As a professional agency company, we can handle it whether you are a trading company or a factory. Simply fill out the draft FTA certificate of origin or provide a packing list and invoice to BW.
