Cost Of Shipping A Container To Belgium

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

Belgium Container Shipping Cost

Several factors influence how much it costs to ship a container to Belgium. Factors such as distance to travel and size of cargo are usually the first to come to mind but there are other important factors to consider as well. Three Movers will assist you with this difficult task and you will be glad that you choose to work with us.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

The key factors affecting the cost of shipping consist of the following:

Volume/Weight Of The Goods

It's not officially one or the other because it depends on the shipping method you choose. When shipping by water, the dimensions of your items are most significant, but shipping by air prioritizes the weight of your goods. The more items you have, the more it will cost to ship them to your new location.

The Mode Of Transportation

The mode of transportation determines both the price and the time it takes for your belongings to arrive. Air freight is often faster and more expensive than ocean freight, so if you have the time, go with the sea. When compared to air freight, sea freight is frequently five times less expensive.

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 cost of your move. The charge will be higher if your shipping company transports your belongings from receiving port or airport to the final destination.

Destination Port

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

Time Of The Year

Peak seasons exist in international shipping, just as they do in every other industry. During the busy season, delivery costs are typically higher.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

You can choose from a range of container sizes, but you are most likely to go with a 20ft or 40ft container. If you're exporting the contents of three bedrooms, a 20ft container is the best choice but it is advisable to use a 40ft option if you are shipping your vehicle with other items.

If the amount of items you want to deliver is small, you may not need to pay for the entire container. The less than container load ( LCL ) option allows multiple clients to share a container when the volume of items is not more than that of a one-bedroom flat. However, greater volumes require the full container load option.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

Container shipment to Belgium majorly uses the two options of sea freight or air freight. The sea freight option provides you with a low cost of transportation but presents a disadvantage of a much longer trip time of about five times slower than the air freight option. Choose the sea option if you don’t care about the duration and you want to save costs. If time is of the essence, though, air freight is the best option. Another distinction between the two is that Sea freight places more significance on volume than weight. When it comes to air freight, things are reversed.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are a few additional shipping costs that you need to consider:

❖ Custom duties and customs clearance

❖ Container inspection fees

❖ General Rate Increase

❖ Inland delivery charges

❖ Quarantine fees

❖ Insurance

Cargoes to Belgium can be picked up quite easily at the port or airport but the door-to-door service option is available if you don't have a way of getting your items to the final destination or do not want to go through the stress of picking them from the port or airport.
