Published on 2021-08-21

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To Bahrain?

Bahrain Container Shipping Cost

Several factors influence what proportion it costs to ship a container to Bahrain. Factors like distance to travel and size of cargo are usually the primary factors but there are other important factors to think about also. Three Movers will assist you with this difficult task and you’ll be glad that you decided to work with us.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

Here are the key factors that affect the cost of shipping:

Volume/Cargo Size

It’s not officially one or the opposite because it depends on the shipping method you select. When shipping by ocean freight, the size of your goods is most vital, but shipping by air prioritizes the load of your goods. The more items you’ve got, the more it will cost to ship them to your new location.

The Mode Of Transportation

The mode of transportation determines both the worth and therefore the time it takes for your belongings to arrive. Air freight is usually quicker and costlier than sea freight, so if you’ve got the time, use the sea freight option. In comparison to air freight, sea freight is usually five times less costly but about five times slower to get the container delivered.

The Journey Distance

It will cost more to ship your belongings halfway across the world than across the Mediterranean. Also, whether you’re moving port to port or door to door will affect the value of your move. The charges are going to be higher if the shipping company transports your belongings from receiving port or airport to the final destination.

Destination Port Fees

Every country requires destination port customs duties and repair costs. They do, however, differ from one country to another. In some countries, the import tax levied on a shipment must be paid before the shipment is delivered to the receiver.

Time of the year

Peak seasons exist in international shipping and during the busy season, delivery costs are typically higher.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

You can choose between a variety of container sizes, but you’re presumably to use a 20ft or 40ft container. If you’re exporting the contents of three bedrooms, a 20ft container is the most suitable option but it’s advisable to use a 40ft option if you’re shipping a car and other items.

If the quantity of goods you want to deliver is little, you will not need to pay for the whole container. The less than container load ( LCL ) option allows multiple clients to share a container when the quantity of goods isn’t quite as that of a one-bedroom flat. However, if you have full container loads, you will bear the cost alone but that gives you some rest of mind as well. That’s because there is no likelihood of mishandling your shipping boxes.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

Container shipment to Bahrain has two options of sea freight or air freight. The sea freight option provides you with a cost-effective option but presents an obstacle of a way longer trip time of about five times slower than the air freight option. However, you can choose to use the sea freight if you don’t care about the duration. If time is of the essence, though, air cargo is the best choice. Another distinction between the two is that sea freight places more significance on volume than weight. When it involves air freight, things are reversed.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are a couple of additional shipping costs that you simply got to consider:

❖ Custom duties

❖ Container inspection fees

❖ General Rate Increase

❖ Inland delivery charges

❖ Quarantine fees

❖ Insurance

Cargoes to Bahrain are often picked up quite easily at the port or airport. However, the door-to-door service option is out there if you do not have how of getting your items to the ultimate destination or do not want to travel through the strain of picking them from the port or airport.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Bahrain?

There are many forms of documentation required to ship a container to Bahrain. The shipper needs to provide the customs declaration, including the following documents:

• Three copies of the original invoices from the exporter addressed to the importer
• Import customs declaration form
• Two copies of the packing list with detailed weights, packaging, and goods classification for each item within the shipment
• An original certificate of origin from relevant chambers of commerce of country of origin of goods
• Shipping agent delivery order from shipping agent line to importer/consignee (with valid commercial registration)
• A copy of the insurance policy
• Original bill of lading
• Import permit/approval from the relevant authority for the importation of restricted goods
• Bank advice/guarantee (if available)
• A statistical declaration if the final destination of the goods is within GCC countries.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading works similarly to a store receipt for items purchased, or any bill for services rendered. The Bill of Lading is a document executed by a carrier validating receipt of goods and embodying an agreement to shipping the goods to a stated destination.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

In some cases, containers either get lost, destroyed or even stolen. To make the company pay for such commotion, purchase insurance beforehand. To prevent paying for additional costs, ensure that you have your Bill of Lading with you to protect the cargo against inevitable losses. In the event of failure, a cargo insurance policy indemnifies the cargo interest. Most cargo insurance policies are underwritten on an “all-risk basis.” This means that the insured is covered for risk of loss or damage except for those risks that are expressly excluded in the policy, such as loss or damage due to willful destruction of the goods by the insured or the inherent vice of the goods.

How Long Does It Take for Cargo to Clear Customs in Bahrain?

The exact shipping time taken for customs clearance in Bahrain will depend upon where you’re shipping from. For air freight transportation services, shipments arrive within 1-2 days. On the other hand, customs clearance and delivery get completed within a week.

What’s The Difference Between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Customs duties are based on product characteristics, while tariffs are applied expenses to particular products from specific countries to certain times. Furthermore, tax rates are fixed on the total value of the product imported into the country.

Each country has different fee obligations, with different shipping duration, product restrictions, and forms. To ensure that you comply with both the primary and more specific product certification requirements, you must work with trusted international partners.

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to Bahrain?

• Customs regulations prohibit the following items from being imported into Bahrain:
• All narcotic drugs (heroin, cocaine, hashish, pills having drug effects, etc.)
• Used and reconditioned tires
• Cultured pearls
• Advertisement material for all types of cigarettes
• Radio/ remote-controlled model aircraft
• Children’s toy guns capable of firing projectiles
• Goods of Israeli origin or bearing Israeli trademarks or logos
• Printed publications, photographs, pictures, books, magazines, sculptures, and mannequins which contradict Islamic teachings, decency, or immorality
• Seditious or treasonable material
• Asbestos or items containing asbestos
• Raw ivory, ivory articles, and rhinoceros’ horn
• Live swine
• Any other items, whose importation is prohibited under Kingdom of Bahrain customs laws, or any other laws of the country

My Container Is Being Delivered to My Home. How Much Space Is Required?

A few factors must be considered before scheduling container delivery to your site. You must be aware of the delivery fees, permitting requirements, ground conditions, and clearance space in advance. You don’t want to ship a container only to find out later that you didn’t have enough space to receive it at the destination. This is why research on the matter is crucial.

A 20-foot storage container typically necessitates 75 feet of straight clearance. A 40-foot storage container will require approximately 100 feet of clear space. Most containers require at least 12 feet of width clearance and 20 feet of overhead clearance.

What Kind of Taxes, Duties, and/or Fees Do I Have to Pay When Shipping to Bahrain?

Customs rates for trade under the FTA and within the GCC customs union are as follows:

Duty Exempt: Includes most goods traded under the FTA, as well as 426 listed commodities (mostly food and medical products) for intra-GCC trade.
5 percent import duty: All other commodities, except tobacco and other alcoholic beverages.
100 percent import duty: Tobacco products (not exempt under the FTA)
125 percent import duty: Alcoholic beverages (not exempt under the FTA).

Customer Reviews

I want to take a moment to say thank you to the extremely hard working crew that handled my move. I admit I was skeptical of hiring a company to move my household stuff but I was so pleased with the services. These guys packed everything up and had it loaded and delivered in no time at all. Everything was taken care of from start to finish and my wife and I were able to take some much needed time to check out the new town without having to worry about getting things unpacked. Three Movers took care of everything and we really appreciate it!
