    i am the new buyer from Kenya, i have ordered some item from China, china factory told ask my shipping agent info?
    can i just ask factory choose a good shipping company for me ?
    which is better way?

    1. Tony Chen

      Hi Kenya,

      you can just find a shipping agent in Google,
      and them forward the shipping agent Chinese office info to the factory, and them can process.

      if you have full container from factory directly, i think they can arrange the shipping to you.
      mean you do not need another shipping company for you.

      but if just small quantity, normally factory do not take care of that.
