Cheap Cost Of Shipping A Container To Panama

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

Panama Container Shipping Cost

Moving a container to Panama is a time-consuming and exhausting process. You are responsible for the cargo's packing, loading, and unloading.

In addition to that, you must also pay the people who are managing your container during the shipping procedure.

If you don't want that hassle, be sure to contact us, Three Movers. We're a moving firm with services available at different locations all around the world, including Panama.

But how much will our service cost you? The cost of international shipments isn't always the same. Several factors can affect the overall shipping cost. To give you an idea, here are the factors that affect your shipping expenses.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

Various aspects of the shipping process will affect your expenses. For example, the characteristics of your cargo, distance traveled, and mode of transportation all contribute to how much you will pay for the shipping process.

You'll pay a higher shipping cost for moving large and heavy products. If you're going to ship them to a distant country, the moving firm will use the distance traveled by your container to calculate your shipping cost.

Moreover, the cost of shipping is affected by the time of year. Sending your goods during the peak season of Panama will have a huge effect on your expenses.

Expect increased shipping cargo rates and delays if you ship a container to Panama anytime from December to April.

These are the primary factors that influence the price of transporting a container to Panama. However, the following could also affect your expenses:

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

The answer to this question depends on what you are shipping and your budget. However, your choice could come down to either a 20ft or 40ft container. Both of them are ideal for transferring both residential and business items.

A 20-foot container can accommodate the contents of an average-sized garage. In the meanwhile, a 40-foot container is ideal for transporting equipment or supplies for a micro or small enterprise. It can hold around 20 to 24 pallets.

When it comes to your budget, you have two options for shipping a container.

You can ship a container without paying for the whole cargo space. This option is called LCL (Less Than Container Load) shipment. You will share the cost and cargo space of a container with other people in this form of transportation.

If you don't want to deal with problems relating to shared container space, you can always pay for the entire container. FCL (Full Container Load) shipping is the term for this mode of transport. After you pay the agreed-upon price, the moving firm will then ship your cargo.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

Moving companies use land, air, and sea freight to transport the shipments.

The best option for you depends on your plans and budget. Let's say you're transporting the cargo from the United States. You can use air freight to move your items to Panama. This is the fastest way of transportation. It would only take a day before your cargo arrives at its destination. However, keep in mind that this is the most expensive option.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money on shipping, go with the land or ocean freight. Although slower than air freight, they are always the less expensive choices for domestic and intercontinental shipments.
