Hong Kong's status as a major regional and world leader in the shipping industry is well known- it ranks 9th in the global merchandise trade and has an economy more fully dependent on commerce than almost any other in the world. Part of what has made Hong Kong what it is today has been its freight shipping industry and its incredibly extensive supporting infrastructure. As the number three container port in the world, and first in air cargo in 2013 with a grand total of 300 million tons of freight moved into or out of the city via sea, river, land, or air transport, Hong Kong is an even greater trade giant than what most people realize.
When planning to ship freight into, through, or out of Hong Kong, especially on far-off, long, and complicated routes, it behooves one to investigate all the details of the affair in order to minimize cost and maximize profit. One must consider the safety of the route and the reputation of the shipping company, as well as the multitude of legal forms and customs checks. Warehouse storage, currency exchange rates, language barriers, and a host of other issues crowd in to make mistakes easy to make and optimal logistics hard to attain.
