what kind of info are you looking for? I looked into this once a upon a time and might be able to help you a little.

Sometimes we tend to be in despair when the person we love leaves us, but the truth is, it's not our loss, but theirs, for they left the only person who couldn't give up on them.

Make the effort and take the risk..

This is a huge topic so you need to be a bit more specific.

Also, you might be a little confused with how international shipping works. First, almost no one buys a container. Your freight forwarder will arrange for the container to be used in China. When your goods arrive in Vancouver, you empty your goods and return the container back to port.

And with all of that being said, if you're just starting off, you probably don't want to import an entire container. You can rent simply part of the container (be it for a pallet, 10 pallets, whatever) and it's essentially a pro-rated rate.
