Why Canadian lobsters are hot sellers in China


    

Sales of Canadian lobsters to China are up – way up – thanks to a tariff China placed on U.S. lobsters in retaliation for U.S. duties on Chinese imports.  

Demand for our crustaceans is so high that the usual hub for lobster freight forwarding, Halifax’s Stanfield International Airport, has been overwhelmed and the excess demand had to be handled with passenger aircraft flying out of Moncton and Montreal.

A single plane can carry up to 150,000 pounds of lobster, which typically gets from the lobster trap to customers in Asia within 40 hours.

Quick Tip #50
Save on smaller shipments by consolidating courier-type orders and using distribution hubs

Instead of sending multiple international courier packages on a daily basis, consolidate weekly and ship by the pallet to a distribution warehouse.
