Cost Of Shipping A Container To Myanmar

Published by Chris Townsend

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

Cost Of Shipping A Container to Myanmar

Shipping a container to another country is a complicated endeavor that is affected by several factors. However, Three Movers is more than capable to assist you with this.

We can ship your container to Myanmar, or anywhere else, with ease at international shipping rates.

Let us break down the key factor that go into container shipping for you.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

Below are factors that affect the cost of shipping a container to Myanmar:

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

Whether you are charged by the volume or the weight of your cargo will depend on the type of transportation method chose. If you ship by air, weight is your biggest concern. Volume is king for sea shipments.

Type of Transport

The means of transportation is another factor that dictates the cost and time for your goods to arrive at their destination. Air freight is faster but expensive while sea freight is less expensive but slower.

The Distance of the Journey

This one is pretty obvious. The longer the voyage the more it will cost shipping items.

The Destination Port

Taxes and fees at the destination port are unavoidable. Myanmar has a range of 0 to 40% as customs tariffs for imported goods. For Myanmar, you’ll probably ship to the ports of Bassein or Moulmein.

The Time of the Year

October to February is the peak season for shipping in Myanmar. Peak shipping periods are those where most people are using shipping services. The increase in demand will translate into an increase in costs.

What Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

There are two main types of containers that are related to shipping: the 20ft and the 40ft.

How Big is a 20ft Container?

A 20ft container is equivalent to the size of a single garage. It can contain the belongings of a three-bedroom apartment. To give you a better picture, imagine a room filled with 100 washing machines. Measure in cubic meters, is around 24-28cbm.

How Big is a 40ft Container?

A 40ft container provides almost double the space of a 20ft container with little addition in price. It is the best value for your money when moving large items. It has around 54-58cbm of usable space.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

Your container has two loading options so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. Less than a Container Load (LCL) is an option if you do not have enough cargo to fill an entire container.

Here you and other consumers will split a container. On the other hand FCL or Full Container Load is the way to go if you have enough goods to fill an entire container. Even though it is more expensive this is the best choice from a financial perspective.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

Another consideration for shipping cost is the mode of transportation. Take a look at the different options available below:

Sea Freight

Myanmar has over 24 cargo ships and three seaports. Sea-Freight is less expensive than air freight and an ideal means of shipping in Myanmar.

Air Freight

Air-Freight is so much faster and more expensive than sea freight in Myanmar. However, the country has just two airports that are capable of handling large Jets. This provides more competition and makes shipping more expensive.

Truck Freight

Myanmar has only one expressway and 3200km of paved road in its network. It is the best way to move your items via land in Myanmar.

Train Freight

Myanmar has no rail links to other countries and Trains are slow in the country.

Additional Shipping Costs

The following additional shipping charges need to be considered by you:

  • Customs duties
  • General Rate Increase (GRI)
  • Container inspection fees
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance cover

We recommend getting insurance for any international shipping project. While these are safer than ever, they are still complicated and accidents can happen. Insurance rates are based on the total value of your items, as opposed to their weight or volume.
