The shipping route to Asia
How long does it take to ship swine products to Asia? You may think it would take a longer time compared to shipping to the U.S. or Canada. The reality is that delivery time can be done in the same amount of time or even less!
From Sonora, shipping can be made via Long Beach, CA on the west coast of the United States to Asian ports in approximately 18 to 20 days. It takes about three weeks from processing plants to customs clearance, and the freshness of Mexican Pork can be maintained equally or even better than other North American products. For frozen products, most of the shipments are made from Mexican ports (due to their low cost), via Ensenada or Manzanillo, in a period of 20 to 23 days.
From Yucatán and Sinaloa, the shipment is mainly frozen products, land transport is used to reach the ports of Manzanillo, Lázaro Cárdenas and Mazatlán, then is shipped. On average, 20 to 23 days are needed for shipping.
From Jalisco, land transportation is used to reach the ports of Manzanillo and Colima, taking between 20 and 23 days to reach their destination.
This will give our customers enough time to make demand-based purchases.
The number of days from order placement to delivery will vary depending on each company’s transportation routes and the condition of pork (frozen/cooled). For more information, please contact MPEA members directly.
