How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To North Korea?

North Korea Container Shipping Cost

The total cost involved in shipping a container to North Korea is affected by various factors thereby making it vary significantly and become a complicated matter sometimes. Nevertheless, you shouldn't worry much as Three Movers are readily available to assist you with all the modalities required for shipping your container to North Korea.

This guide will explain all the factors involved in shipping containers to North Korea and the cost that goes with it.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are factors to be considered when calculating the cost to ship a container to North Korea.

The Volume/Weight of The Goods

This is determined by the kind of shipping you use because sea freight deals mostly with the dimensions of your goods while air freight deals mostly with the weight of your goods. Therefore, the cost of shipping your goods is influenced by the volume or weight.

Type of Transport

The period and cost taken for your goods to arrive are also determined by the transportation mode. Sea freight is much more economical but slow, whereas air freight is a lot faster but more expensive.

The Distance of the Journey

The distance it takes to ship your container has a significant role to play in the cost of shipping. A shipment covering a larger distance will cost more than a short-distance shipment.

The Destination Port

Customs tariffs and service costs are unavoidable in every country. However, these tariffs differ from country to country. North Korea has a VAT of 10% on imported goods and a special excise tariff of 10-20% imposed on certain luxurious items.

The Time of Year

Autumn is the peak season for shipping in North Korea due to the mild weather. Shipping of goods is higher due to high demand during these seasons.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works for Me?

Shipping containers are of 16 types but your sole concern should be only on two (the 20ft and 40ft containers). The rest are for industrial and business-related moves.

How Big Is A 20ft Container?

A 20ft container is capable of storing the entire content of a three-bedroom home.

How Big Is A 40ft Container?

A 40ft container gives you double the space of a 20ft container with a little fraction of the cost. It is value for money especially when you have lots of items to move.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

A system has been designed by us for persons with a small volume of goods, whereby many clients can share one container. This is called the "Less Than Container Load" (LCL).

It is suitable for someone moving the contents of a one-bedroom apartment. However, if the volume exceeds that, then the customer should use an entire container. This is called the "Full Container Load" (FCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

The mode of transportation is an important factor to consider in international shipping. This information will aid your decision:

Sea Freight services

North Korea has a cargo-passenger ferry for ocean freight shipping service but it is mostly used for tourism.

Air Freight shipping service

It is the best option for moving items to North Korea because it is faster and they have a lot of cargo aircraft.

Train Freight

This system is not ideal in North Korea as the railways are not properly maintained and it takes longer for movement between destinations.

Truck Freight

This is a better option for transporting your goods via land. It is straightforward and your goods can be delivered to your doorstep.

Additional Shipping Costs

After deciding on the mode of transportation to use, you need to also consider the following additional shipping charges:

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