How much does it cost to ship a container to Norway?

Shipping a container overseas might cost anything from $2000 to $3000. But keep in mind that this is simply an estimate. There's no way to tell the exact price because a number of factors can affect it.

Shipping companies calculate the cost of moving based on factors such as the properties of your cargo, the mode of transportation, and the destination.

Also, the time of the year heavily determines the overall shipping cost. During peak seasons, the shipping rates of international shipments are higher than usual because ports will be busy with a large number of incoming and outgoing air cargo.

The peak season in Norway is between the middle of June and the end of August. This period is when the crowds will be at their heaviest.

Apart from that, here are additional factors that will affect your overall shipping cost:

  • Insurance
  • Packing
  • Taxes and Custom fees
  • Inspections
  • General Rate Increase
  • Storage

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

The right size of container will depend on your items or budget. But you can narrow down your options to 20ft and 40ft containers. These are the ideal sizes for shipping residential and business cargo.

The 20ft container is enough to hold your stuff from an average-sized garage. If you are moving commercial goods, its storage capacity is enough to carry ten standard-sized pallets.

The 40ft alternative, on the other hand, has enough area for the contents of a three-bedroom house.

You can move your container through FCL (Full Container Load) or LCL (Less Than Container Load) shipment. In FCL, you will pay for the entire container to begin moving your cargo. Meanwhile, in LCL, you have to share the space of the container with another individual. Of course, you and the other person using the container will split the cost of using it.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You can ship a container through land, air, or sea. But since Norway is your destination, sea freight and air freight are your only option.

Here's the difference between the two to help you pick the right option:

  • Sea freight is a way of carrying large quantities of goods by ship. The ocean freight method is a cost-effective method to move huge amounts across long distances because a typical cargo ship can carry about 18,000 containers.
  • Air freight is the method of shipping products through an air carrier. Many people and businesses choose this type of transport because it assures that their cargo can go to and land anyplace in the world where an aircraft can fly.

When time is of the essence shipping via air freight is your best bet. The flight time for the air carrier is measured in hours rather than days. Unfortunately, the cost of this method is high and it is determined by the total weight of your shipment.

Meanwhile, the cost to send your cargo via sea will be established by the volume of your goods. It is cheaper than air freight but your things would not arrive at their final destination for days or weeks.
