Cost of Shipping a Container to Palau

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To Palau?

Palau Container Shipping Cost

Many people spend more than they should on shipping containers overseas. If you want to keep your expenses to a minimum, hire a reputable international shipping and logistics services company like us, Three Movers.

We are offering services that streamline your logistics needs. We can move your cargo anywhere in the world, including Palau.

But how much does it cost to ship containers abroad? There's no clear answer to this because different factors affect the shipping cost.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

A number of things are influencing the overall cost of shipping. Some of them are the following:

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

Those factors affect your expenses. However, your costs are primarily determined by the ship items like personal belongings and household items of your cargo, its destination, and mode of transit.

In addition to that, the time you send your cargo will also have an impact on the entire cost.

Ports in Palau are going to be busy between July and December because these are the months when people are visiting this country. Expect a small rise in the shipping fee if you're shipping a container during these months.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

You can use a 20-foot or 40-foot container to send your items to Palau.

The correct option depends on the characteristics of your shipment. For example, a 20-foot container can store 200 full-sized beds or 50 refrigerators, whereas a 40-foot container has twice the capacity.

Despite having more capacity, it doesn't mean that the cost of a 40-foot container is more expensive.

The reason for that is because the cost varies depending on your shipment mode. Also, you have the option of choosing between FCL (Full Container Loads) and LCL (Less Than Container Load) shipments.

In FCL, you will pay for the entire container. The moving company will transport it even if it's not full. In LCL (less container load), you're going to share the storage space and cost of using the container.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

Different types of freight transportation include air freight, sea freight, road (truck) freight, and rail freight transit.

Land freight is the most cost-effective option. It transports your container to a new location by using roads and rails. Despite its low cost, this is not usually the best choice because it is confined to locations accessible by road or train.

With that said, choose between air and sea freight to move your cargo to Palau. There are advantages and disadvantages to each of them, so make sure to choose one that suits your needs.

Air cargo freight is an option if you need the container sent quickly. It would just take a few days for delivery, but it would cost a lot of money.

Meanwhile, sea freight would be the best option if you want to save money. But take note that this mode of shipment is slower than air freight. Your belongings may reach their destination within a few days or weeks.
