China is Australia’s number one export country – we exported goods worth a huge AU$118 billion in 2018. The largest exports are in iron ores, coal and natural gas. China also imports huge amounts of precious stones, wool, livestock, cereals and wood.
This country has seen rapid economic growth in recent years, with millions being lifted out of poverty. It has a huge population of around 1.4 billion and a growing middle class. This economic growth has led to an increased demand for imported products, creating new opportunities for Australian businesses who wish to sell to high-income consumers with generous disposable incomes who are hungry for the products our country has to offer.
There’s huge potential for exporting products such as food, alcoholic beverages including wine and craft beer to China. Imports of goods from Australia also include complementary medicines including supplements – this has been contributed to further by China’s ageing population. Factors such as growing urban density, the increased use of e-commerce platforms, and low-price local delivery services have further facilitated the Chinese consumer’s access to Australian goods.

Sending your consignment to China in a plane is the quickest way of getting it there – and it therefore costs more than sea transportation. If you export by air from Australia to China, you can expect the entire operation to take between one and five days. Air freight is ideal if your cargo is not heavy or large.
Sending freight via the ocean takes a little longer than if you export by air from Australia to China – transportation times are typically between 18 and 35 days, depending on which part of China you are exporting to:
North China: 25-35 days
South China: 20-30 days
East China: 18-25 days
Sea freight is much cheaper than sending your goods by air and will work well if your consignment is bulky or heavy.
