Purchase IT hardware in the US and ship to China with all necessary importer of record services and customs clearance in 5 to 10 days.


China is a manufacturing hub for IT hardware; however, most of the equipment is designated for export. Importing into China requires specific customs authorizations for the importer of record and a range of manufacturer related documentation to accompany the shipment.

FGX’s importer of record service provides you with a safe, fast, and cost-efficient way to deploy IT hardware into Mainland China.

Thanks for checking out FGX as you’re thinking about how you’re going to either procure or deploy your technical gear into China. If you found us here you probably fall into one of three buckets:

1) You’ve either procured in China and recognize that it’s very expensive

2) You’ve tried to deploy or ship into China and recognized that it’s very difficult

3) Maybe your consignment got held or this is the first time you’re endeavoring to do business in China and stand up a technical solution.

In either of those cases you’ve come to the right place we’re experts and China is a very active trade lane for us. We hold all of the permitting required from a compliance perspective to move all of your gear into China for you and do it very cost effectively. Generally we’re trying to target 5 to 10 depending upon how you negotiate up to 15 percent savings when procuring in the US and then working with a company like FGX to deploy into China versus you buying in the end destination through a VAR.
