Cost Of Shipping A Container To Finland

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

Finland Container Shipping Cost

A variety of factors determine the cost of shipping a container to Finland. As a result, shipping rates might vary significantly, making it a problematic issue at times. However, you do not need to be afraid since Three Movers can help you ship your container to Finland. With over twenty years of experience, we are a seasoned and competent moving company. We're known for making it easy for you to move your items across countries.

If you're considering shipping a container to Finland, there are a few things you should be aware of, and we're here to help.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

When calculating the cost of shipping a container, there are mainly five factors to consider:

The Volume/Weight Of The Goods

The sort of shipment you choose has a big impact on this. For example, sea freight is more concerned with your items' size, however, air freight is more concerned with their weight.

Type Of Transport

The manner of transportation influences both the cost and the time it takes for your items to arrive. When compared to sea freight, air freight is often faster and more expensive. However, ocean freight is typically five times less expensive. Hence, the choice of which method of transportation is preferable is yours to make.

The Journey Distance

Everyone understands that the longer the shipping distance, the more expensive it is. Furthermore, when your items are delivered from door to door or port to port, the cost of shipping is usually affected.

The Destination Port

Customs tariffs and service costs are mandatory in every country. Non-EU import tariffs in Finland are quite low, especially for manufactured goods, ranging from 2.61 percent to 4.17 percent on average.

The Time Of Year

There is usually a peak season when it comes to international shipping. This normally happens from August to October, with a smaller one in January and February. Shipping is usually expensive during these seasons so you may want to steer clear.

Which Size Of Shipping Works Best For Me?

A 20-foot or 40-foot container will most likely convey your goods. A 20-foot container can often hold the contents of a three-bedroom, whereas a 40-foot container can accommodate double that amount. Even if they are twice the size, 40-foot containers rarely cost twice as much.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

The urgency of your shipment and the distance it needs to go will determine the kind of delivery you select. Ship cargo on the ocean is the most efficient way to move goods internationally for Finland, while rail and road are the most popular ways to transfer goods within the country. Air cargo is another option, although it can be pricey.

Additional Shipping Costs

Oftentimes, some additional costs come with shipping. They include the following:

  • Customs clearance and duties
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Insurance
  • Quarantine fees
