Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

No matter where you’ll ship your container to, there are always the same things to consider when it comes to cost. The distance to travel is an obvious element at play. The further away you are sending your container, the more it’ll cost. The way you choose to transport it is also important. Some forms are slower than others, like sea freight, but they come with benefits in costs. Air freight is faster than most, but can quickly become very expensive.

Next, there’s volume or weight, depending on the mode you selected. For sea freight, volume is the measure they use in regards to the cost of transport. For air, it’s weight. The price will be directly proportional to the amount of items to transport.

Finally, the season and the final port of call are both factors to keep in mind. Taxes are a universal fact no matter where you ship, however port-specific service costs may vary. Shipping rates tend to rise during the busiest months of the year, so knowing when to ship might help you save money.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

There are several types and sizes of containers, but people normally work with two: 20ft or 40ft. The former is better for smaller households (about 3 bedrooms of content), while the latter can accommodate double the amount. A 20ft container has 25-28cbm (cubic meters) worth of space, which is about the size of a garage. A 40ft container has 54-58cbm of usable space, so you can comfortably fit a vehicle and many more items in it.

If you don't have enough items to fill either, you could select an alternate style of load. Full Container Load (FCL) is the traditional option, best for those that have enough to fill a container. The alternative is Less Than Container Load (LCL), where you share the space of a container with other customers.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

Depending on where you are located, and where you are shipping, you’ll be using sea, air, or land freight transportation.

Land freight transportation is the cheapest option, and very effective when it is available. However, if you aren’t connected to the country by land it won’t be a choice.

In other cases, you’ll choose between sea and air cargo shipping. Shipping by cargo plane is the fastest option but it has a limit on the amount of weight you can send. Cargo ships on the other hand don’t have as many limits for weight. Volume is what they account for. However, they are significantly slower than planes, but they are also 5 times cheaper.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are a few additional shipping costs that you need to consider:

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

Custom duties are unavoidable, and will largely depend on the destination country and port. Depending on where your container docks, you might have to cover fees for general inspection, and quarantine inspections. If you are sending your items from the port directly to a location, that will incur extra charges. However, this is the most convenient way to do it.
