    Well upon a bit of research I'm seeing where sea freight would be good for like shipping boxes/drums or well anything as it would be the cheapest but also the slowest. 2 - 3 months at that.

    The Chinese mail system I think allows up to .5KG free, after that you're charged some obnoxious figure to get small items shipped to you.

    Air freight means you can't make a profit or the profit margin will be extremely small.

    What would some here recommend for shipping a 10KG box or less FROM China to the states?

    sea freight and then warehouse... that doesn't need to be a big setup at first... just throw it into your garage and re-eval in a month
