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

Ethiopia Container Shipping Cost

International shipping is a complicated duty with innumerable moving parts, including regulations, security, capacity, and legal considerations. With this reality, Three Movers can assist you in understanding all there is to international shipping to enable you to make a reasonable judgment.

We also ship containers to several countries, including Ethiopia. You need to request a quote to find out the cost of this process. But that aside, there are certain truths you need to be apprised of to facilitate you to have a proper understanding of the price.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

There are many circumstances to be evaluated when determining the cost of shipping a container, among which 5 of them are most significant. These are the distance to be covered during traveling, volume or weight of your cargo, method of transportation, fees charged at the destination port, and the time of the year.

Concerning the last factor, it is worthy of noting that there are peak seasons when it comes to international shipping. August to October is traditionally a prime shipping time, with back-to-school and holiday shopping propelling consumers' demands yearly.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

The 20ft and 40ft shipping containers are the most commonly used shipping containers and you’ll likely be using either of them. The 20ft shipping container has enough room for almost 100 household washing machines, and as you'd expect, the 40ft shipping container has double the capacity of the 20ft shipping container.

Although the 40ft container has twice the capacity of the 20ft container, doesn't necessarily mean it has twice the cost.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

You may not have to pay for the entire container if the number of items you’re shipping is not much. We’ve created a means for persons with small cargo volumes, in which many customers can share a container. This part load shipment is known as “less than a container load” (LCL).

If it’s the contents of a one-bedroom apartment you desire to ship, then LCL is a decent option. However, a volume larger than that will require the use of an entire container. This is called a “Full Container load” (FCL) or sole-use equipment.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

In the modern-day supply chain, there exist a variety of flexible freight solutions to meet the unique business needs of organizations around the world.

Depending on your products, suppliers, and patterns of trade, you may require one or a combination of freight options to get your shipments to the desired destination.

The types of freight transport are air freight, ocean freight, truck freight, and rail freight. You'll be needing ocean or air freight transportation in most cases. Ocean freight is slower compared to air freight, but cheaper. If you're interested in having a speedy shipment, then air freight is the best option for you.

Additional Shipping Costs

The following are few additional Shipping Costs you should bear in mind:

  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Container Inspection fees
  • Ethiopian custom duties
  • General rate increase
  • Ethiopian VAT

While international shipping is more secure than ever, you obviously don't have any intention to be in a position where you are forced to incur any damages. Hence, you ought to get some information about insurance. Insurance is evaluated based on the financial worth of your goods instead of weight or volume.

When shipping goods to Ethiopia, you should consider door-to-door services and airport terminals. This is because Ethiopia is a landlocked country that lacks a national seaport. The major airport in Ethiopia is the Addis Ababa Airport which is open for the reception of shipments.
