Cost Of Shipping A Container To Chile

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

Chile Container Shipping Cost

Shipping a container load of items through international waters or air space is a headache itself, and an additional challenge is choosing an exemplary moving service to do it.

Three Movers offers international shipping, covering all the South American countries, including Chile. They estimate the cost involving the shipping of a container after taking note of various factors. For your consideration, we have briefly discussed them below in the article.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

The shipping companies calculate the cost of shipping your container to a different country like Chile by citing factors like weight or volume of the shipment, the destination port in Chile, the choice of transportation, the total distance covered by the ship or airplane, and the time of year.

The final factor is the most significant one as the cost of shipment rises significantly if it is being completed during the peak season (August and September). Also, try to avoid the time after the Chinese New Year (January and February) as it is also considered as the peak season in the freight industry.

Which size of shipping container works best for me?

Assuming that your shipping needs are not industrial, the two best shipping containers for you are 20 ft and 40ft. The 40ft containers are more spacious and can hold almost double the volume of goods than 20ft containers without double the cost. It is also a perfect choice if you are shipping a car to Chile.

On a different note, if the cargo volume is far less and only consists of a handful of boxes, you can go with the Less Than Container Load (LCL) to ship them in a shared container. However, if it is over 15 cbm, you will have to choose Full Container Load and rent the whole container.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

The city of San Antonio is home to South America 13th busiest seaport and a major international airport. Your container can be delivered to the port of San Antonio through air or ocean freight. Yet if the product is not time-sensitive shipping it by water is a more cost-effective option than flying it.

Additional Shipping Costs

The additional shipping costs that you have to incur while shipping your container to Chile are as follow:

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

A new GRI (General Rate Increase) cycle occurs almost once a month when the demand is at a peak prompting a rise in shipping rates. As the demand falls, the shipping companies lower the prices, and demand rises back again. It is a cycle that keeps the rates very volatile. We suggest you plan your shipping in such a schedule so that your Cargo Ready Date falls before or after a new GRI.
