About eDreambag China

eDreambag is a special collaboration between Hanmipost and SF Express.  It is a great option for those moving to China and wish to bring their personal items along with them.  With the proper documentation showing details of their entry, China customs will release the shipments with no taxes to be collected.  There are some restrictions (shown below on this page) but it is the best option to bring all of your personal items with you.

SF Express Air Cargo

eDreambag ships using SF Express VIA AIR.  SF Express uses our high quality internal logistics system to get the shipments to China.  Shipments leave twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays.

eDreambag gets to China when you get to China

We coordinate so that your eDreambag shipment will arrive near the same time that you do in China.  Feel free to drop off your boxes early and let us know when you plan on arriving.  We can store the boxes in our climate controlled secure facility and then send them out according to your needs.  We usually recommend that the packages arrive a few days after you do so that you have time to get all the necessary paperwork.

Insured up to $100

eDreambag is insured up to $100.  The total value for eDreambag China cannot be over 5000 Yuan (approximately $725.00).  All items must be declared correctly or else there is a possibility of tax issues.

Hanmipost’s e-Dreambag is a convenient way for those that are either moving to China or moving back to China after an extended stay in the U.S.A.  Put your items in our boxes (sized 18 x 18 x 24), up to 50 pounds per box.  We will air ship the boxes to China using SF Express on your preferred schedule!  Once you arrive in China, the boxes will be delivered to you.  It’s fast, affordable and safe.

What can I ship?

With eDreambag China, you can ship USED clothing, books and other personal items.  NOTE: China Customs takes this issue very seriously.  They will check to make sure no items are new or there is not a large quantity of the same types of items.

For example, if you send personal electronics, there is a limit on how many of the same kind of electronics before China customs will levy a tax.

Hanmipost has Chinese/English speaking employees that can help determine if any items may have problems.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Items that are not allowed:

  • Cosmetics
  • Food
  • Vitamins
  • Brand new packaged items.
