Cost Of Shipping A Container To Burkina Faso

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To Burkina Faso?

Burkina Faso Container Shipping Cost

You are ready to start a new life in Burkina Faso, or you need to send bulky items over there using a shipping container. The first question that might spring to your mind is, “How much is this going to cost me?” At Three Movers, we offer international shipping services to many countries, including Burkina Faso. Our rates are transparent, and we are always happy to tell you how we arrived at the price. We promise that no hidden charges will be added to your total.

Factors that affect the cost of shipping

When you plan to ship a container, the information on the factors that affect the cost will prove helpful. The more detailed information you have, the better your chance to create a plan that keeps the price at a minimum. Here are the five major factors that affect the cost of shipping a container to Burkina Faso:

  • The destination port.
  • The items’ weight and volume.
  • The time of the year.
  • The transport type.
  • The distance.

The shipping industry has two seasons where activities peak. The holiday retail peak season leads to a rise in shipping activities from August to September. The 15-day Chinese New Year that falls between January and February spurs another peak season. Since the market sets the prices, shipping during the high season is costly.

Once you are done selecting the shipping date, remember that costs vary depending on the destination port. The authorities at every port charge differently based on regulations and prevailing conditions.

If you feel like there is too much information to track, remember that the experts at Three Movers are here to ease your mind. We will guide you on what information is relevant and help you develop a shipping plan with the best value.

Other secondary factors will affect the cost of shipping:

  • Inspections: If your luggage is selected for inspection, that will mean additional charges to your bill.
  • Customs fees: The officials in Burkina Faso will charge you for importing a container into the country.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): The rate increases based on shipping operation costs.
  • Insurance: Settle your mind by purchasing insurance if anything happens to your items during the shipping process.

Which size of shipping container works best for me?

When selecting a container size for your shipping needs, you want to ensure it is the right size. Here are two simple tips:

  • 20 ft container: suitable for typical 1-br, 2br, and 3-br houses.
  • 40 ft container: suitable for anything above 3br.

Once you have chosen your preferred container size, you can now select one of the two available load options:

  1. Less Than Container Load (LCL) Option: This allows you to split the cost of shipping with other parties to share the container.
  2. Full Container Load (FCL) Option: Only your items go into the container, which means you incur the container’s total cost.

Understanding the different types of freight transportation

The chosen type of freight transport will also impact the cost of shipping a container to Burkina Faso. Here are your options:

  1. Cargo Plane: Fast delivery within 2-4 business days. The price is relatively high compared to transport by sea.
  2. Sea Freight: Cost-effective and relatively fewer carbon emissions. Delivery times to Burkina Faso range from 2 to 8 weeks.
