That’s interesting? Perhaps they are recommending Ex Works v FCA? Personally I shy away from either of these 2 options, as I prefer to have one price out of China and then know I am just costing for import freight, local clearance, duty/customs & delivery in Aus. I find it messy costing for local charges in China with quotes in different currency for China charges, USD for freight, then AUD for local charge on arrival. In saying that if your supplier will only quote FCA or Ex Works then go with Ex Works (negotiate a cheaper price to allow for the fact that they no longer will have to pay the trucking in China)
I would also recommend getting quotes from more than one forwarder – keep them honest :P
