There is much confusion over “this part of China”. A short geography/history lesson will clarify:

  • The island of Taiwan (just off the Chinese mainland) constitutes 99% of the “Republic of China” (RoC); the other 1% are small outlying islands
  • “Mainland China” – officially “Peoples Republic of China” (PRC) – is 266 times larger; each “China” claims sovereignty over the other! The PRC had been expected to invade, but despite occasional spats with its tiny USA-backed RoC neighbour, both seem to be “letting sleeping dogs lie” for now
  • This state of affairs was caused by the Chinese civil war which petered out in 1949; the Communists drove the RoC Nationalists out of the mainland (which they had governed since 1912), leaving them only Taiwan and other small islands. The communist mainland became the “PRC” or “Communist China” as we know it.
  • Taiwan has been (&/or still is) known by several other names: Formosa, Nationalist China, Chinese Taipai, Free China, or just China – which all adds to the confusion!

Regardless – whether sending sea freight to Formosa, containers to Chinese Taipai, or pallets to this part of China – Barrington Freight are the first choice freight forwarder to Taiwan, Republic of China!

Although its eastern two-thirds are mostly rugged mountains, the gently rolling Chianan Plains in the west are home to most of Taiwan’s population. Most Taiwanese freight will ship to the primary port of Keelung in the north, or other main ports of Taichung, Mailiao, Kaohsiung and Hualien. The capital is Taipai, with other major cities being New Taipai, Tainan, Hsinchu, Taoyuan, Zhongli and Chiaya.
