Factors That Affect the Cost Of Shipping A Container To Rwanda

Rwanda is a landlocked country but relies on neighboring countries for its shipping through the sea. It also conducts shipping products through land transport systems of railway and roads. The following are factors that affect shipping to Rwanda.

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

The concept of international shipping is that the more products you have, the more you pay. As a result, the size of your goods will influence the transit cost.

Type of Transportation

Sea is cheap, but as Rwanda is landlocked, you will still have a long way to go before your cargo is delivered. Your best option is either of the other available options of road, air, or rail.

Sea Freight

Despite the difficulties of landlocked confinement. It's worth noting that shipping goods over the sea is a rather inexpensive choice. You can cut significant costs by using it. However, you will need to arrange for other freight plans or methods of transport into the country. Carrying a large amount of cargo is preferable. When shipping in bulk, sea freight is the most cost-effective method.

Air Freight

It can transport your cargo quickly but it can harm your budget due to price. High-volume goods cost more in using air cargo planes to convey your items. It is the best option for long-distance shipping and small cargo shipping.

Truck Freight

Transporting your goods with trucks is the quickest for local-distance movement. It is also quick to use when transporting from neighboring nations. Importers commonly use this means due to the landlocked nature of the country. However, it can be slowed down by the challenge of weather and road.

Train Freight

This freight option is only applicable to the neighboring nations of Rwanda. The International railway service of the country connects to two of its neighboring countries. It is less expensive than using the truck.

The Distance of the Journey

The distance of the journey goes a long way in deciding the hours of service and the price of work done. The distance between your pick-up location and final destination will affect the cost of transportation.

The Destination Port

Custom duties are required for every trade conducted across national borders. Charges are decided by a percentage of the volume of your cargo. The charges of the neighboring ports will determine your custom duty except you are shipping by air.

The Time of the Year

Proper timing is required for the shipping of cargo to every nation. Moving companies have periods when their shipping schedule is high. This usually increases the cost of transporting cargo at the time.
