How much does shipping a container to Oman cost? The answer to that depends on numerous factors because there are many things that could affect the overall shipping fee.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

You would probably spend around $2000 to $3000 in shipping a container to Oman. But that price could still go down if you have an idea of how freight companies calculate your container shipping costs.

To help you with that matter, here are the factors that affect the cost of shipping:

  • Cargo type - The moving company will measure and weigh your cargo to calculate your shipping rate. If it exceeds the maximum limit, you will pay a higher amount because they might add the penalty fee to your shipping cost.
  • Location - If your cargo's destination is far away from its origin, you will pay a higher moving fee. Most shipping firms will use the distance traveled by your shipment to compute your shipping fee.
  • Transportation mode - Each mode of transportation charges different amounts for the shipping fee.

Moreover, make sure to avoid shipping your cargo during the peak season because shipping fees are higher than usual during that period.

The busiest time in the shipping industry occurs during summer and around the Chinese New Year. Meanwhile, in Oman, the peak season starts in October and ends in April.

Though not as major as the ones mentioned above, the following can also have an impact on the overall moving costs:

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Shipping containers come in a wide range of sizes but the most common ones for residential and commercial use are 20 and 40 feet in length.

The 20-foot container has enough room for a family belongings. The most efficient way to transport more than that is in a 40-foot container.

No matter what's in there you only have to pay for the complete container. Full Container Loads are what this term refers to. If you go with this option your container will be sent out no matter how many items you have.

LCL or Less Than Container Load is an option if you do not wish to fill a complete container. Both the costs and the use of the storage facility will be shared with another party.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

There are three types of freight transportation, and each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages. To give you an idea, here are the different types of freight transportation:

  • Land transit is the most utilized mode of transportation for local and intercontinental shipping. It has the benefit of being simple and inexpensive. This kind of cargo transportation, however, is confined to areas reachable by road or rail.
  • Air freight is a practical solution for moving your belongings to Oman. It's quick and easy, and it's the best option if you're simply moving a few boxes at a time. However, keep in mind that this option is costly; your cost of shipping will be largely dictated by the weight of your cargo.
  • Sea shipping can deliver bigger payloads at a lower cost. Ocean freight services even the primary mode of transportation for large amounts of cargo. Although sea freight is the cheapest choice, it is also the most time-consuming. It might take several days to several weeks for your shipment to arrive at its destination.

Since you're shipping a container to Oman, your only option is either air or ocean shipping. You can only use land transit if the destination of your cargo is reachable by road or railway.
