Default What is the Exact Process for Importing?

Hello all, I am new to importing and will become an import expert with time.

I am starting a company and importing a product from China (Shenzhen). The market responds well to this particular product so that's not the problem. I am not sure of the exact process for importing and I've read all the threads on this forum, but experience is always better than reading tons of info.

My question is with the big importing companies out there, DHL, FedEx and UPS. Which of these supplies the best value and simplicity for importing a product from China? From getting the product to getting it to my company location?

The manufacturer is FOB: Port Shenzhen. I would like to get this product sooner than via ship since it's almost the holiday season. Since their terms are FOB, can I use an agent of some sort to go from FOB Shenzhen to Air? I live in Cincinnati Ohio and would like to go FOB Shenzhen to Air Hong Kong to Cincinnati Ohio. I believe I will be using DHL for this but wanted ideas to make this easier and cost effective. Product is only about $1500 USD at most.

Are the costs better to use the "big boys" easier than free companies?

Please Help.
Thanks !

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
