Cost Of Shipping A Container To Namibia

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

Namibia Container Shipping Cost

International shipping can be a massive headache when you don't know your way around it. However, you can free yourself from these worries when you hire one of the best shipping services companies to assist you with your shipping needs, such as Three Movers. This article can guide you through the uncertainties of international shipping to Namibia.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Shipping

Shipping to Namibia is influenced by several factors which alter the shipping rates and delivery rates. The major ones are discussed below:

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

Volume or weight is a primary consideration in international shipping. Cargoes are weighed before the price is decided. Heavy cargoes cost more to transport due to the difficulty it presents to move them. However, weight is less important than volume when it comes to sea shipping.

Type of Transport

Namibia has several modes of importation due to its borders of sea and land. Your choice will be determined by how much you're willing to spend and the time of delivery.

The Distance of the Journey

Another factor of relevance is the distance between the pick-up and delivery locations. Charges are priced based on how far the journey will be.

The Destination Port

If your country is part of the South African Customs Union (SACU), customs duties should not be listed on your worries. Locations outside the union territories are taxed based on percentage and commodity category.

The Time of Year

Peak seasons affect shipping pricing both locally and internationally. Selecting your move date on off-peak seasons can save you lots of funds on your budget.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

It is important to understand the different modes of transportation to choose the best for our plan and budget.

Sea Freight

Sea freight is about five times cheaper than air freight and will help you save a huge part of your budget. It charges less for bulky goods and easily transports cargo across national borders. However, its bulky nature and vessel speed do not allow speedy delivery of cargo.

Air Freight

This easily is the fastest freight transportation. It is also expensive. So if you don't mind the cost and you are working with a tight schedule, this is your best bet.

Truck Freight

What we're talking about here is the shipping of commodities across land roadways. Because of its proximity to other nations, travel time is minimised. Without having to make any additional stops for loading or unloading on the route to your house or workplace, delivery can be made directly. It's more adaptable than train freight but also more costly.

Train Freight

It is a less expensive model of transportation on land. Its delivery schedule is more dependable than that of the truck freight as it is not easily affected by the weather. However, it will require transportation to your home or office after delivery.

Container choice is essential for the comfort and safety of your cargo. It comes in different sizes and some are specially designed to meet special needs. The 20ft and 40ft containers are general commodity containers that are commonly chosen.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

We have the full container load service for clients that want cargo privacy or can solely afford a container. The less than container load is for clients who cannot afford a container. Client's whose cargo can’t fill a 20ft container can choose to share with other clients.
