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

Moldova Container Shipping Cost

Are you looking to ship a container to Moldova but don’t know where to start? Is the prospect of managing all the necessary documentation worrying you? Worry no more. Three Movers is here to take care of all the logistics involved for you. We are a company with an established record of successful shipments to Moldova, and multiple countries around the world. While we will take care of all the details for you, we want you to understand what goes into this type of endeavor. For this reason, we will share the details of what this operation entails.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Moldova

There are main factors to consider when it comes to calculating the cost of shipping a container. These are:

  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped: Your cargo will be priced based on its weight or volume depending on the type of transportation you choose. The former applies to air transport, while the latter is used for cargo ships.
  • The type of transportation used: Transportation of cargo by air is faster, but the cost will be higher in comparison to shipping by sea.
  • Distance: The distance between the two countries will affect the cost of shipping. Shipping from Poland to Moldova, for example, will be cheaper than shipping from Canada.
  • The destination port: The destination port affects the cost of shipping cargo because port fees can vary. Moldova’s main port is the port of Giurgiulești.
  • The peak period for shipping items to Moldova is between August and October. This can extend to February due to Christmas and the Chinese New Year. Shipping during this period affects the cost of shipping.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Without experience, it will be difficult to estimate the right shipping container size for your cargo. Let us make the estimation a bit easier. The contents of a three-bedroom house can fit into a 20ft shipping container. A 20ft shipping container, alternatively, can take 48,000 stacked bananas. If you know your intended cargo is more than this, it would be a good idea to look into using a 40ft container.

The available size of a container is calculated in cubic meters (cbm). For instance, a 20ft container has about 25-28cbms of usable space, while a 40ft container has 54-58. While the 40ft container has double the space, it isn’t always double the price.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Freight is typically transported via sea, air, ground and rail. The first three options are typically used by those bringing freight into Moldova.

If the goods are arriving from a nearby country, they may be transported via land.

Yet shipping goods by air or sea is much more common. Freight ships take far longer than cargo planes but they can carry much more goods and are around five times cheaper. Flights are far quicker but you will need to watch how much cargo you bring along.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are usually additional shipping costs when shipping a container anywhere. The additional shipping costs to expect are:

  • Insurance: Insuring items adds to the overall cost of shipping. They are vital in providing much-needed cover for your cargo.
  • Custom fees: Moldova has an average import tariff of 5.3%.
  • Inspection: You might be charged for inspection of the shipped items. This will add to the overall cost.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): This is an adjustment of freight rates across specific trade routes. If the demand for shipping on a route increases, shipping costs might also increase. The possibility of a war on trade routes can also increase the cost of shipping. fedex economy
