Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

The price indicated on the quote you receive is not random. We consider various factors to ensure that its fair for all parties involved. The five main factors are:

  1. The destination port: Each port has its fees and each country has its taxes. There multiple ports that operate in Libya, such as the Tobruk and Khoms ports.
  2. The time of the year: Demand drives up prices during the high season (January, February, August, and September).
  3. The distance: This one is pretty straightforward. A higher distance means more fuel and by extension more money.
  4. The chosen mode of transport: Sea, air, or land transportation.
  5. Your cargo’s weight and volume: Which one is used to rate your cargo will depend on the mode of transportation.

Beyond the main factors, we have others that may come into play. They include:

  • Insurance: Once you purchase the insurance policy, you will not need to worry about any unforeseen circumstances causing damage to your shipment.
  • General Rate of Increase (GRI): We balance our profitability with the operating costs by adjusting the GRI accordingly.
  • Customs Charges: Libyan tax laws will determine how much you pay on arrival.
  • Inspections: If your container gets inspected, the bill is passed to you for payment.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

While there are many types of shipping containers, you only need to choose between two standard options:

  1. A 20ft Container: If your cargo can fit a typical three-bedroom house or smaller, go with this size.
  2. A 40ft Container: If your cargo can fit a typical four-bedroom house or bigger, go with this option.

When you select the container that meets your needs, take the next step, and decide on your load options. If you have enough room in the container, you can choose the Less Than Container Load (LCL) option. It allows for cargo belonging to different parties to be loaded in the same container. You get to split the cost with the others. If your shipment does not leave enough room for sharing, go with the Full Container Load (FCL) option.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Whether you need your shipment to arrive quickly or cheaply will determine the freight shipping option you choose. If time is of the essence you can get your shipment to Libya in two to four business days via air freight. To save money ship through ocean freight but be prepared to wait anywhere from two weeks up to eight weeks for the container to arrive.
