Cost Of Shipping A Container To Brazil

How Much Does It Cost Of Shipping A Container To Brazil?

Brazil Container Shipping Cost

Shipping a container to another country can be quite a hassle. You face different sets of laws and customs regulations. Three Movers will be there to ensure your container gets to Brazil without a hitch. We will provide you with the right size of container that will fit all the items. Because of our experience in international shipping we are uniquely qualified to advise you on the duties you may expect on arrival in Brazil.

Factors that affect the cost of shipping

When Three Movers sends you the quote that indicates the cost of shipping to Brazil, you may ask yourself what factors led to that amount. Shipping costs depend on five major factors: the transport type, distance, the time of the year, the weight and volume of the items, and the destination port.

While most of these factors are self-explanatory, you may be wondering what the time of the year has to do with costs. August, September, January, and February mark the high season for international shipping. If you can, make sure to schedule your shipping date outside of these months.

Each port has service and custom fees that will affect the cost of shipping your container. The professionals at Three Movers will guide you on the most convenient destination port from your origin port that will minimize your costs without inconveniencing you.

Other additional factors that may affect the shipping cost include:

  • Insurance: There are risks associated with shipping a container overseas, and insurance makes sure you will be compensated if anything happens.
  • Custom fees: Once your container is in Brazil, it will be subjected to terminal handling charges and port service fees.
  • Inspections: While only a small percentage of containers are physically inspected, yours may be chosen for inspection. In such a case, the charges incurred will be added to your cost.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): These rates fluctuate based on operational costs. Take note of the rates when choosing your shipping date.

Which size of shipping container works best for me?

When you decide to select a shipping container, you can go with a 20ft or a 40ft container. If you are shipping the contents of a three-bedroom house or something smaller, the 20 ft container will meet your needs. The 4ft container works for anything above that, starting from a four-bedroom home.

You might be wondering if you will have to pay for the whole container even when your items leave plenty of room.

In international shipping, we have two terms relevant to this question. The first one is Full Container Load (FCL), and the second is Less Than Container Load (LCL). When you select the LCL option, you will split the cost of a container with other customers that will use it. Say you are moving the items from your one-bedroom house. The LCL option will be perfect for you since the items will leave plenty of room in the 20ft container. If you have enough items to fit a container of either size, FCL is your best bet.

Understanding the different types of freight transportation

The four modes of cargo transport are air, sea, truck, and rail. Transporting containers by truck or train is impractical because of the long distances involved in making the trip from the United States to Brazil. You'll have to decide whether to ship your goods via airplane or boat.

Ocean freight shipment is the best option if you want to save expenditures on container transportation. As an added bonus, taking a ship instead of a plane reduces your impact on the environment by preventing the release of carbon dioxide.

If your decision is based on speed, air freight is for you. It will take 1-3 days to get your container to Brazil using air shipping, while ocean shipping will take 2-8 weeks.
