Cost of Shipping a Container to Central African Republic

Cost of Shipping a Container to Central African Republic

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To Central African Republic?

Central African Republic Container Shipping Cost

There are numerous things that can go wrong on freight shipping voyages. Significant damage to goods in the container, losing the items to irresponsible handling, disruptions in the shipping routes, etc., are few names on a big list. Three Movers provides an easy solution for these problems by offering meticulous shipping services to the Central African Republic at affordable rates. Our international shipment liaisons are fully insured for a satisfying and secured client experience, from packing to unloading.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are multiple factors determining the final cost of a shipping assignment. Most people take only the volume or weight of the goods and the journey distance into account and calculate a wrong estimate for shipping of their container. It also depends on your choice of transport which may be air cargo or ocean cargo, the destination port in the Republic, and the time of the year (whether it’s peak season or the off season).

If you want to keep the costs minimal, avoid shipping your container during the peak season that lasts from August to September every year. The charges you will pay during the peak season are almost double to off-season costs.

Which size of shipping container works best for me?

If your shipping container is not concluding industrial moves, then there are basically two types of container sizes you can pick from – 20-foot and 40-foot. Needless to say, the 40ft container has more space that can easily hold the furniture or goods of a four-bedroom house or more. The smaller 20ft container is about the size of a single garage and can fit the contents of a three-bedroom house or 200 full-sized mattresses, for example. If no heavy vehicles are included in your list of items, you can comfortably go with the 20ft container.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

You have two options to ship your container to the Central African Republic – through air or sea. The air freighting options are available, but they are very limited and expensive. If the urgency is not an issue, you can use the economical alternative of sea freighting to get your container shipped to the Bangui port.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are some additional shipping costs that you should take note of:

  • Custom duties and taxes
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance for the container and goods inside

You can pass on the insurance for your goods but not for the container. Most container rental companies will lease you the container with the conditions that will require you to have it insured beforehand. If you decide to insure your goods, make sure to get one that will extend the protection to the new location they are shipping.
