How Much Does It Cost Of Shipping A Container To Philippines?

Do you want to send a container out of the nation where you live? If this is the case, you may face some difficulties. Nonetheless, you don't have to be concerned about it because Three Movers has you covered. We also handle cargo for international shipments to other nations throughout the world, including the Philippines.

This guide is designed to inform the general public on the rates at which a container can be carried to the Philippines, as well as the significant factors that impact the rates of shipping a container to the Philippines.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping Container To Philippines

Five key elements impact the cost of moving products across national borders. It's only natural to think about them before delivering your goods, given their unquestionable importance. These criteria include shipment volume/weight, mode of transportation, shipping distance, destination port, and the season.

International shipping costs are determined by the volume/weight of packages as well as the distance traveled i.e minimum shipment volume. The cost of shipping normally rises as the volume/weight of the international shipments increases and the transportation distance increases. However, not all modes of transportation incur the same costs; air freight transportation is typically the most expensive. Ocean freight is a cheaper option. Privately owned destination ports, like government-owned destination ports, tend to charge more.

Furthermore, the peak season in the Philippines, which is the time of year when there is a greater demand for shipments to be transported, usually occurs between August and October each year. Shipping cost to Philippines is highest during this time of year. Retailers start preparing for back-to-school and the holiday seasons around this time.

During these months, as you might expect, freight prices rise and truck capacity is scarce, forcing shippers to pay higher spot rates depending on whether you are shipping the entire container and the container size.

Which Size of Shipping Container is Most Suitable for Me?

Depending on the size and weight of your shipment, you can select either a 20-foot or 40-foot container for delivery to the Philippines. A 40-foot container can accommodate twice as many items as a 20-foot container, which is 400 flat-screen televisions or 48,000 bananas. Although a 40-foot container may hold twice as much as a 20-foot container, its price is not typically double.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

Transportation and logistics are seen as key drivers of economic growth in the Philippines. The country's shipping system is multimodal, encompassing both inter and intra-island mobility, and often involves air, sea, and road forms of transportation. However, when it comes to shipping goods, there are two major modes of transportation: air and sea freight transportation. The mode of transportation you choose is determined by your requirements. If you need your items delivered quickly, air freight shipping is the way to go. On the other hand, if you don't want to spend a lot of money on shipping your cargo, you should work with an ocean freight shipping company.

Difference Between FCL and LCL

For customers with minimal cargo volumes, we designed a system in which multiple customers can share a container. This is referred to as a "less than container load" (LCL).

Any international shipments greater than the contents of a one-bedroom apartment will need the usage of a full container. This is called a "Full Container Load" (FCL).

Additional Shipping Costs

Some additional shipping expenses are likely to occur when shipping to international countries. They include:

  • Insurance
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Customs duties

For items valued at less than PHP 10,000 (around 200 USD), the Philippines imposes no tariffs or taxes. For agricultural items, the Philippines' simple average Most Favored Nation applied tariff rate is 9.8%, and for non-agricultural products, it's 5.6 percent (US Trade).
