Cost Of Shipping a Container to Malta

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

Malta Container Shipping Cost

Our goal at Three Movers is to save you the headache of figuring out how to ship a container. We can deliver your shipment to most countries in the world, including Malta. Transparency being one of our core principles, we break down all the elements that determine the shipping cost.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

Our pricing formula takes five main factors into account:

  1. The time of the year: When the demand rises during the high season (August, September, January, and February), shipping costs follow the same trajectory.
  2. The destination port: You will be charged port fees upon arrival. The rates vary from port to port.
  3. The mode of transport.
  4. The distance covered.
  5. Your cargo’s weight and volume.

Remember that the experts at Three Movers will strive to ensure you have all the information needed to make the most cost-effective decision.

Other factors that are relevant when calculating the shipping cost include:

  • General Rate Increase (GRI): The GRI is a tool for maintaining profit margins when operating costs change.
  • Insurance: Your peace of mind will cost a proportion of the cargo’s value.
  • Customs fees: Customs officials will rely on Malta’s laws to determine your import duty obligations.
  • Inspections: You bear the cost of inspection if your container is selected for inspection.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Focus on the two standard choices available. The 20ft container fits anything below a three-bedroom house, while the 40ft container fits cargo that fits a four-bedroom at the minimum.

You have the luxury of the Full Container Load (FCL) option, which entails having only your cargo fitted in the container. If you feel there is enough room to share, you can select the Less Than Container Load (LCL) option, where you split the cost of the container with other parties whose cargo is loaded onto the container.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

Due to the intercontinental transport aspect of shipping a container to Malta, rail and road transport are not viable options. Here are your options:

  1. Sea Freight: While you will have to be patient and wait for 2-8 weeks, you will be happy to know that it costs five times less than the price of air transport.
  2. Cargo Plane: Get value for your money by getting your shipment to Malta in 2-4 business days.
