China: Imports Of Goods
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.
Export Goods To China With TSL
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.

Export By Air from Australia To China
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.
Export By Sea from Australia To China
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.
TSL’s Quick Tips For Doing Business In China
- Digital communication is very important for carrying out business in China. WeChat is the main platform, with over 1 billion users. This is worth bearing in mind when reaching out to potential associates and customers.
- You will see the Chinese Yuan expressed in two ways: CNH and CNY. CNH refers to trade on the offshore market, so outside of mainland China.
- Chinese names put the family name before the forename.
- It takes a while to build up business relationship with the Chinese. To get started, using a neutral intermediary is a good idea.
- China has a huge e-commerce market, so in order to market your produce there you may want to consider using trustworthy e-commerce platforms such as Amazon and eBay.
