freight and shipping CH-US

I am running an online shop in CH, and am getting more and more enquiries from the US. I have a party in the US willing to invest in being a distributor and want to know of the best way to get my stuff to the US.

At the moment my regular courier here in CH only offers a air freight service to the US. This as you can imagine is quite expensive.

Can any one suggest a shipper or shipping agent who can handle this and preferably work in english with me.

Re: freight and shipping CH-US

What are you selling? What is the average size of the item?

Is there an American company selling your stuff which you could do a deal with on the enquiries you receive from the USA?

Re: freight and shipping CH-US

There are a few shipping companies that I spoke to about shipping with a container. Best way is to google and contact these companies. Be ready have accurate size and weight measurements for a good quote.
