But how much does it really cost to ship a container to Pakistan?

How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Container to Pakistan?

A full container load costs around $3,000 to ship internationally, while smaller container loads are often less expensive.

But keep in mind that the container shipping costs are determined by a number of factors, including container size, load size, container shipments mode, and time of the year. We'll go through each area in detail below to help you plan and budget for overseas shipping expenses.

  • Container size: Just like when sending a shipment domestically, you'll need to figure out what size shipping container you'll need when exporting goods overseas. Shipping containers are available in a variety of sizes and prices, with most taking up between 20 and 40 feet of area. The bigger choices are more expensive to ship, but they provide more packing and shipping space.
  • Shipment mode: There are numerous ways to send a container internationally, and each has its own pricing, benefits, and downsides.
  • Time of the year: The shipping industry has peak seasons, and shipping rates are higher than usual during these periods. In Pakistan, the busy period in ports starts in May and ends in June.

In addition to that, here are other factors that affect your shipping cost:

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

It's a good idea to think about insurance options if you're moving your belongings overseas in case your they get lost or destroyed. Insurance charges will, of course, add to the total shipping costs, so do your research and factor these costs into your budget.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

When it comes to moving residential and commercial stuff, there are only two viable alternatives. These containers are either 20ft or 40ft in length.

If you're relocating a few items, such as the contents of a two-bedroom house, a 20-foot container will suffice. The 40ft container, on the other hand, is perfect for relocating micro/small business equipment or supplies.

The quantity of your load would also affect the cost of shipping your container abroad.

If you are shipping a container full of your items, it will be FCL or Full Container Load shipment. You'll be paying for the entire container to move your cargo.

In case your items are not enough to fill an entire container, you can share its cost and storage space with other people. This type of shipment is called LCL or Less Than Container Load.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You can transport a container via land, air, or marine freight. The best choice is determined by your location and the destination of your shipment.

But let's say you're shipping from the United States. You have the option of shipping by air or by water. The transport charge for air freight will be high, but the delivery procedure would only take a few hours.

Sea freight services, on the other hand, is less expensive even if you are shipping heavy items. However, it takes days or weeks for your cargo to reach its destination.
