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

Laos Container Shipping Cost

Before you know the cost of shipping a container to Laos, you must first find a moving firm that will help you.

There's a lot of moving companies available in your place or online. However, we can assure you that Three Movers will be the best option since our services cover different locations worldwide, such as Laos.

But how much does moving a container internationally cost?

How much does it cost to ship a container to Laos?

The typical cost of shipping a container overseas is around $2000 to $3000. However, keep in mind that this price is just an estimate because many factors can affect the overall shipping cost.

To give you an idea about it, here are the main factors that determine the cost of shipping your cargo:

  • Dimensions and weight of your items: Shipping can be expensive if you have a large shipment.
  • Type of transportation: The method of transporting your cargo will have a huge bearing on your shipping costs.
  • Distance: The distance traveled by your container will affect the shipping cost.
  • Destination port: The type of customs duties and taxes you have to pay will depend on the shipping port and country of your destination.
  • Season: Just like every other industry, international shipping has peak seasons. Summer and the days after Chinese New Year are the busiest seasons. During these months, shipping costs will be greater than usual.

If you are shipping a container to Laos, avoid doing it anytime from October to April. These are the months when ports in the country are receiving a large number of tourists and shipments.

Although not quite as important as the first five factors listed above, the following can also affect delivery costs:

  • Insurance
  • Packing
  • Taxes and Custom fees
  • Inspections
  • General Rate Increase
  • Storage

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

The container size depends on your items and budget. Although if you are moving residential or commercial stuff, a 20ft or 40ft container is enough.

Ten pallets or the contents of a two-bedroom house can fit inside a 20ft container. Of course, the 40ft container will double the storage.

Speaking of storage, you can split it with another person. If you do that, you and the other will also share the cost of using the container. This shipping method is called LCL or Less Than Container Load.

But if you want to use the entire container, you're going to ship it through FCL or Full Container Load.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You have three options to move your container to Laos:

  • Land
  • Air freight
  • Sea freight

But let’s assume you're shipping from the United States, your option is either air or sea freight.

Moving your container through ocean freight is slower than air transport. The entire travel time could take a couple of days or weeks. But despite that, it's a lot cheaper and easier to process. You can save a lot of money even if you are shipping during the peak season.
