What is the transit time between Shanghai Port and Seattle Port?

China and USA are two export-import giants.

China is the biggest exporting country in the world, whereas the USA is the biggest importing country in the world.

These two countries have been trading significant amount of goods to each other. 

As a result sea transportation between Chinese Ports and American Ports have reached very high volumes for decades.

The importance of Seattle Port for the cargo vessels that come from China

Seattle Port is the 10th largest U.S. port and 83rd biggest port of the world in 2013 in terms of TEUs. (TEU means Twenty-foot equivalent unit)

Today I would like to explain the transit time between Shanghai Port, China and Seattle Port, USA.

I will be giving three different examples of shipment schedules from container lines, that are working between these two important ports.
