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

Burundi Container Shipping Cost

The cost of moving a container overseas differs widely. Shipping a full container overseas costs between $2,000 and $3,000, while smaller container loads are less expensive. The cost is affected by different factors, like destination and shipping services.

If you're moving items to Burundi, we got you covered. Three Movers offers shipping services to Burundi. How much will our services cost you? Let's find out!

How Much Does Shipping a Container to Burundi Cost?

The cost of moving a full container to another country is determined by various factors, such as container size, destination, and shipment mode. We'll go through each factor in detail below to help you plan and budget your overseas shipping costs.

  • The volume or weight of your items - In sea freight, the shipping cost will depend on the measurements of your cargo. On the other hand, the weight of your items is the main factor that will determine the cost of shipping your items in air cargo.
  • Type of transport - The method of transportation will heavily affect the shipping cost. Air freight is typically faster and more expensive than sea freight. So if you're not delivering time-sensitive items, it's best to choose the ocean. Sea freight is often five times less expensive than air freight.
  • Distance: The cost of moving your belongings across the Mediterranean will be less than the expense of sending them halfway around the world. Whether you ship from port to port or door to door will have an impact on how much you pay. A greater rate will apply if the shipping firm is responsible for moving your belongings from one doorstep to another. But despite this, we recommend door-to-door services to eliminate any hassles with logistics.
  • The destination port: Customs tariffs and service fees are unavoidable during customs clearance, but they differ from each country. With that said, the final destination of your shipping container will decide the amount of taxes you must pay.
  • Time of the year: International shipping, like any other industry, has peak seasons. Peak seasons for international shipping happen during summer (between August and September) and shortly after the Chinese New Year. The demand is higher, and capacity is limited during the peak season. Therefore, the shipping costs would be higher than usual. If you want to get the best deals, avoid shipping during these months.

Other fees to consider when delivering business or personal items abroad:

  • Insurance
  • Packing
  • Taxes and Custom fees
  • Inspections
  • General Rate Increase
  • Storage

In Burundi, peak seasons happen mid-year and during the holiday season. So if you're shipping within those months, it's best to choose door-to-door shipping. It's more likely that the Bujumbura Port will be receiving a large number of exports and imports during that time. It may take days to process your container or items if you choose the port-to-port service.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

There are many types of shipping containers, but you only need to be familiar with two: the 20-foot and the 40-foot. The other options are primarily for corporate and industrial shipments.

A 20-foot container can pack household items of a three-bedroom apartment. It has a volume of 33 cubic meters (cbm). However, there is usually only about 25-28cbm of usable area.

On the other hand, the 40-foot container has a total capacity of 67cbm, but roughly 54-58cbm is actually used. If you have a lot of items to transport, 40-foot containers are clearly the better option. Houses with four (or more) bedrooms will almost certainly require a 40-foot container.

You don't have to pay for the entire container when transporting your belongings. You can ask the moving company to move your cargo through LCL shipping. In LCL, or less than container load, you will share a single container's space with other individuals.

The contents of a one-bedroom flat could generally be transported using LCL. If you have a large number of things to send, FCL (Full Container Load) or sole-use cargo is the best option.

You should pay for a whole container to transfer all of your stuff together. Since the container will only include your items, this option is quicker and safer.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

There are various ways to send a container overseas, similar to how we ship domestically, each having its own pricing, benefits, and disadvantages.

  • Land transport (by truck or train): Trucks and railroads are often used in domestic and intercontinental moves, although they are not suitable for international shipping. Land transportation has the advantage of being inexpensive and generally efficient, but it has the disadvantage of being limited to destinations that can be reached by road or track.
  • Air freight is not a very common option for moving a container overseas due to its high cost. Air freight can be ten times more expensive than maritime freight. On the other hand, it has the advantage of being extremely quick and efficient. It may be a sensible option if you're simply shipping a few boxes at a time. You can choose air freight to ship your container to Burundi. But if you don't want to spend a lot of money on shipping, pick sea freight instead.
  • Sea freight, or transporting by container ship, is the most low-cost but also the most time-consuming method of shipping internationally. Sea freight can take anywhere from a few days to many weeks, depending on the route and destination. When shipping products between continents, however, a container ship is frequently the only option.
