Overview – Ocean cargo from China to Sri Lanka

Remark SINO: Bear in mind, the 3 most important criteria for sea freight are the price, the time of transportation, and the security.

Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka is an island country situated in the ocean Indian, precisely in the Bay of Bengal, separated from India by Palk Strait and the Gulf of Mannar. Its long coastline, measures 1,340 km long, and the country is the 25th largest island of the world.

Thanks to its geographical position in the ocean Indian, Sri Lanka is ideally situated on the sea routes between the Orient and Occident. Regarding to the World Bank, the sea freight reached 8,1 million of container of 20’ in 2015, and the forecast are 10,5 million in 2024.

The strategy of the government was to create the biggest transshipment hub in the region in 2012 at Colombo port.

The major manner of transport of goods are transiting via sea freight, and 70 % of ship traffic from and To Colombo are transshipment cargo.

Historically, the relation of trade between china and Sri Lanka began in 1952 with the Rubber-Rice pact.

Nowadays, the island is part of the Chinese strategy in the Ocean Indian, also called as the Maritime Silk Road or the china’s overall strategy “One Belt, One Road” 

Concerning the means of transport by sea, if you are in a hurry to ship your products from China to Sri Lanka, shipping is not relevant.

Ocean freight is optimal for individuals’ customers or smalls enterprises which don’t make the time of transportation a priority. On the other hand, this means of freight is economically interesting. Indeed, the cost and high volume are the principal advantages.

*In short, sea freight is recommended for regular traffic.
