Tires produced in Shandong account for a large proportion of China's domestic tires and have a strong regional scale advantage. Shandong Province is the largest import and export trade area in northern China, and Qingdao is also the largest port for tire exports.

It is said that some companies' tire orders have been scheduled for two months. On the one hand, the factors are the record high of domestic automobile sales, and on the other hand, the substantial increase in automobile exports, especially electric vehicles.

If you need to ship car tires or any other type of cargo from Shandong, China to Italy, Senghor Logistics is your best choice. We are a top ocean freight forwarder, offering comprehensive freight services, reliable shipping schedules and competitive prices. Our services include handling all relevant customs documentation, clearance, and even duties and taxes (DDP/DDU), door to door delivery.

Senghor Logistics can provide sea freight, air freight and rail freight from China to Italy, so what is the difference between these three in transporting tires?


Sea Freight: Cost effective for large and heavy cargo such as car tires. Shipping time is longer compared to air freight, usually a few weeks. Proper packaging is required to withstand potential moisture and humidity during ocean shipping. 

Air freight: Shipping time is faster, usually just a few days. More expensive compared to ocean shipping, especially for large and heavy cargo like car tires. Generally more reliable and with less risk of damage than ocean shipping. 

Rail freight: Can be a good compromise between sea freight and air freight in terms of cost and shipping time. Coverage is limited in some areas, but may be a viable option for some routes between China and Europe. Efficient loading and unloading processing is required at the terminal. 

When considering which shipping method to use, it is important to consider cost, transit time, reliability, and the specific requirements of the goods being shipped.

For customers who need to transport tires, we generally recommend choosing sea freight or rail freight.

How long does sea freight take from China to Italy?

Sea freight from China to Italy typically takes approximately 25-35 days, depending on the specific origin and destination ports, as well as factors such as weather conditions and other logistics considerations. 


Let’s take Qingdao Port in Shandong Province to Genoa Port in Italy as an example. The shipping time will be 28-35 days. However, due to the current situation in the Red Sea, container ships from China to Europe need to detour from the Cape of Good Hope in Africa, which increases shipping time.

How long does rail freight take from China to Italy?

Rail freight from China to Italy usually takes around 15-20 days, depending on the specific route, distance and any potential delays.


Affected by the situation in the Red Sea, many customers who originally transported by sea chose to transport by rail. Although the timeliness is faster, the capacity of railways is not as large as that of sea freight container ships, and the phenomenon of space shortage has occurred. And it is winter in Europe right now, and the rails are frozen, which has a certain impact on rail transport.

Transparent quotation

During the quotation process, our company will provide customers with a complete price list, all cost details will be given detailed explanations and remarks, and all possible costs will be informed of the possibility in advance, which help our customers make an accurate budget and avoid losses.

We have encountered some customers who asked for price comparisons with quotations from other freight forwarders. Why do other freight forwarders charge lower prices than us? This may be because other freight forwarders only quoted part of the price, and some surcharges and other miscellaneous charges at the destination port were not reflected in the quotation sheet. When the customer finally needed to pay, a lot of unmentioned fees appeared and they had to pay.

As a reminder, if you encounter a freight forwarder with an extremely low quotation, please pay more attention and ask them if there are any other hidden fees to avoid disputes and losses in the end.
