Cost of Shipping container from Iran

The cost for shipping a container from Iran ship can vary depending on several factors, most notably the size or type of the shipment. Instead of focusing on weight alone, it is important to consider the dimensions (length x width x height) and volume (length x width x height). Shipment's with short lengths or small volumes tend to be more expensive

In addition to the size, shipments from Iran often have a high percentage of breakage and loss which is usually reflected in the price per container, as well as any additional expenses that may accrue during transit or delivery. This reduces overall costs for companies shipping overseas from Iran. For example, the value of the shipment is US$10,000 and it is broken/ lost in transit, this could result in an additional 5-6% loss it

How much does it cost to ship a 40ft container?

The cost of shipping a container to Iran is approximately $860-$1080. This includes the base cost, booking fee, and port service charge. Additional charges include 2.5% conveyance tax; Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) surcharge; and war risk insurance, if applicable. If you need to ship inside of Iran, it will be $500 more in fees.

Shipping a container to Iran is very competitive in comparison to other countries. There are currently no surcharges or quotas on shipping containers to Iran from the United States. The only additional charges that may apply would be the port service fee charged by cargo terminal operators and customs brokers at the destination.

How much does it cost to ship a 20ft container?

The cost of sending a container to Iran is a frequent inquiry we get from clients.

Many factors affect the total price of transporting cargo to Iran making it difficult to provide a simple solution to this topic. A universally applicable solution does not exist. Each shipment is one-of-a-kind and has its own set of factors.

Less than Container Load Shipping To Iran

What is Less than Container Load (LCL)

Less than container load (LCL) is the term used to describe any number of products or items that are loaded into an overseas container shipping service container without having to fill the entire space. Because of this, it takes on the cost of shipping one full container load (FCL). Accordingly, LCL container shipping costs are cheaper than FCL shipping containers. You need to know about the nitty-gritty of LCL shipping:


The cost of shipping a less than container load (LCL) shipment is cheaper than the price of a full container load (FCL). While you can save on costs initially, remember that it will take longer for your goods to reach their destination

LCL shipments need to be consolidated with other manufacturers and suppliers' goods in order to fill an entire container. This means that you might end up paying more money in the long run because of all the extra added charges. The only way around this is if you keep your LCL shipment consigned through one supplier, who in turn will consolidate the load with others.


An LCL shipment can be of any size or weight. As mentioned, you will end up paying more in transportation costs when your shipment is less than container load (LCL), which means that it is not complete and most likely not bulk either. Thus, if you are shipping a bulky item, make sure it fits in an actual container.


Because of the extra time that it takes for your LCL shipment to reach its destination, it is advised that you don't choose less than container load (LCL) when shipping items worth thousands of dollars. The risk factor here is higher due to the length of time involved with getting your shipment to its destination.


Full Container Load (FCL)

The time it takes for your shipment to clear customs and reach its destination is shorter when you choose a full container load (FCL). By choosing less than container load (LCL), these items will take longer to arrive at their final destination. This means that the risk factor in delayed delivery times increases.

It is assumed that the basis for this calculation is a full container load (FCL) of 20 ft. or 40 ft. in size, with an average weight of 25 tons per unit. 20-ft. units are much more common in shipments to Iran because Iran's roads are not capable of handling 44-ton loads, for a 40 ft container will be included.

  • The cost of transporting a container from X to Y is determined by the following factors:
  • Type and number of trucks required
  • Availability and location of trucking facilities (inland terminals)
  • Transportation distance between terminal(s) and final destination, using the Standard Distribution Cost System (So additional costs for faster transport will be included)
  • Availability and location of rail terminals, as well as the type of railcar needed to carry the load. Inland trucking costs from a Pacific Northwest Port such as Seattle or Tacoma to inland destinations in Iran can run from $2,000 -$4,000 per 20 ft unit. The haul to the final destination in Iran will require several trucks since Iranian roads are not capable of handling 20 ft. (and larger) containers.

Iranian Customs procedures for clearing imports into the country is time-consuming and cumbersome; it is, therefore, necessary that containers be fast-tracked through customs, which can be done if the container arrives on a direct ship and is undersized (20 ft. and 40 ft), and thus not subject to "break bulk" procedures, which can slow down the customs clearing process considerably.
