Cost of Shipping a Container to Chad

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

Chad Container Shipping Cost

Three Movers extensively operate in the Central African countries and is your best bet to ship your container to Chad. The ports in Chad support both air freight and ocean freight shipping options. It is ultimately the owner's decision to choose between them and get the best possible deal out of numerous options available. However, there are many other factors to consider too, and they are discussed at length below.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are five primary factors that determine the pricing of any shipping assignment. Along with the weight or volume of the shipment and type of transporting, other aspects like total distance covered, destination port in Chad, and time of the year the shipping happens also contribute to the final cost.

Chad does not have a coastline, and all the containers arriving through sea freight come to the port of Douala in Cameroon. From there, the inland shipping routes are employed to enter Chad from the port of N’Djamena. If you want to save a lot of time and a few bucks on distance miles, air shipping services are a more likely choice.

Which size of shipping container works best for me?

The two major options you have while choosing a container are 20ft and 40ft. The 20ft containers are suitable for housing the furnishings of three bedrooms or six two-wheeler vehicles. If you are also exporting a car, then we suggest you go with the 40ft containers.

If the item load consists of only a few boxes, you can also opt for a part-load shipment or “Less Container Load”, where you can share the space of a single container with other people.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

The two common types of freight transportation are sea freight and air freight. As we have discussed earlier, the better option to transport your container to Chad is air shipping. However, even after considering the extra distance miles, sea freight is still far cheaper than the cheapest air freighting option. So, if the time is not a constraint, we suggest you choose from the sea shipping options.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are some other costs involved in shipping your container to Chad:

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

Make sure to verify your shipment deal and check if they are offering you a port-to-port rate or a door-to-door rate. The deal on the former rate will only deliver the container to the destination port, and then you will figure out a bunch of logistics yourself to deliver your stuff to its ultimate destination. A full door-to-door service will save you the effort and any inland delivery charges.
