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

Benin Container Shipping Cost

Moving overseas is an adventure in itself, but the thought of the processes that will consume a significant amount of your time is exhausting even to consider. You must be concerned about the efficient tracking of your container, as well as the services you’ll select to ensure that it arrives securely at its destination.

Are you having trouble deciding between the various companies that can help you with everything?

Three Movers takes care of everything for you, from packing and loading valuables into our heavy-duty trucks to unloading your containers at the overseas port. Our list of serviced countries includes Benin.

What Are The Factors That Influence Container Shipping?

Several defining factors can influence your decision of shipping and possibly help you save money depending on the time of year.

  • Weight of Your Container: The precise capacity of the container is critical for it to be safely installed on the truck, avoiding any spillage. The maximum gross weight of the container should not exceed 67,200 lbs. Our experts will ensure that you stay within the Benin shipping limits during packing.
  • Distance to be Covered: The cost per mile varies greatly depending on where you ship items from and the type of containers you choose. To travel 6,275 miles between the United States and Benin, prices can range from $1,958 to $5,158.
  • Time of the Year: It is always wise to adhere to the low-cost moving seasons of the year. A long peak season can be seen around mid-August and a shorter one in mid-October. These times register high demand and container supplies are all occupied, as a result, you have to pay a lot extra than the usual rates.

What Are The Types of Transport For Relocating Your Container?

For your container, you have the option of shipping through, air, road, or train transportation. There is a weight limit for air freight, whereas shipping is more weight enduring. Though railway relocation is environmentally friendly, not every country has a flexible network. Benin doesn’t.

The ocean routes from the United States to Benin are extremely advantageous. The longest transit routes, such as those from Long Beach to Cotonou (Benin), take 72 days, while the shortest routes, such as those from Columbus, take only 4 days. Vehicles can also be shifted across the highways.

However, the choice is entirely up to you, and we can offer our unbiased advice.

What Size of Container Is Right for You?

Depending on your package requirements, our company offers a variety of container options. Dry storage containers, car carriers, insulated thermal containers, refrigerated ISO containers, and a range of other options are available.

There are two load categories based on the size of your cargo. These are :

  • Full Container (FCL): This category allows customers to book a full container for themselves. If your packages are particularly sensitive and need to be kept separate from others at the port, this is a great choice. This also allows you to transfer large amounts of material at once.
  • Less Than a Container (LCL): This is the type in which your items are shipped together with others in a single container. You are given an inventory list to follow, and as a result, it costs you less than the former.

What Other Costs Can Add Up To Your Shipping?

Peak seasons, as shown, can have a significant impact on your budget. Because the holiday season is the best time to start relocating, there is a major container and truck shortage.

You will additionally be charged an Emergency Bunker Surcharge (EBS) to compensate for any unexpected increases in fuel prices during or around your shipment. Safeguarding your belongings with insurance is also a mandatory action that can add up quickly.

Our consultants will offer you all accounting reports and additional fees in a transparent manner so that you can make an informed decision.
