Cheap Cost Of Shipping A Container To Poland

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

Poland Container Shipping Cost

While carrying your items across the border, you may encounter certain difficulties. Once your shipment reaches the border, you may be required to produce legal documents, get permissions, and have it inspected by customs. An inspector will examine the contents of the shipment before allowing it into the nation. All of this should not dissuade you; a professional company like Three Movers can assist you in shipping your container to Poland.

If you're looking for a way to get your container to Poland an eastern Europe country and a member of European Union, you've come to the perfect place. This guide will walk you through the expenses of shipping your container and the factors that affect them.

Factors That Affect the Costs of Shipping

There are five crucial factors to consider when evaluating the cost of transporting a container and freight services. Distance traveled, volume or weight of items, mode of transportation used, destination port taxes, and time of year are all points to consider.

The last point should come as no surprise, given that international shipping has a peak season. Every country, including Poland, experiences a peak season, which has a significant effect on shipping rates. This normally starts in mid-August (summer) and ends in January or February, with a smaller one in between. There is a stronger demand for services during certain times, which might lead your costs to rise dramatically.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Shipping containers are available in a range of sizes, however, your belongings will most likely be shipped in a 20ft or 40ft container. A twenty-foot container can often store the contents of three rooms, whereas a forty-foot container can transport twice as much. A car will fit into a 20-foot container, but there won't be much room for anything else. A 40-foot container, on the other hand, has plenty of room for your car and other items. The 40ft container should be considered if you're shipping a large number of things.

Difference Between FCL and LCL

If you're carrying a small number of items, you might not need to pay for the entire container. We've devised a system that allows clients with tiny air cargo volumes to share a container. "Less than a container load" (LCL) refers to this type of incomplete cargo.

If you're shipping the contents of a one-bedroom apartment, LCL is an excellent choice. In contrast, a volume more than that will necessitate the use of the entire container. A "full container load" is the term for this (FCL).

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

How quickly you want your shipment to arrive will dictate the kind of transportation you choose. It also depends on the country of destination and international shipping. You must determine if the shipping is done from port to port or from door to door.

In comparison to other industrialized countries, trucking and road transport in Poland account for the lion's share of freight traffic compared to other shipping methods like ocean freight shipping services, while other modes have much smaller cargo market shares.

The following is a breakdown of the Polish transport and logistics industry by mode of travel:

  • Road = 75.19%
  • Railway = 14.32%
  • Sea = 3.90%
  • Pipeline = 6.32%
  • Inland waterway = 0.22%
  • Air = 0.04%

Additional Shipping Costs

When shipping to Poland or any other country, you should be aware of the following additional shipping costs:

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