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

Serbia Container Shipping Cost

You want to ship items to another country and you wonder what sort of things will affect the cost. For a start, the size or volume of the shipment and the distance the destination country is from you, are factors that will affect it. While you consider this, know that Three Movers is a reliable ocean shipping services company ships items to Serbia. Let us help you understand things you need to know while shipping cargo.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Serbia

Five main factors would affect the cost of shipping a container, and they are:

  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped: The volume and weight of the item directly affect the cost of shipping, The a few boxes is cheaper compared to items like car.
  • The type of transportation used: The method of transportation picked affects the cost of shipping. Air freight services is generally more expensive than sea transportation.
  • Distance: The distance between the country of origin and the destination country will increase or reduce the cost of shipping.
  • The destination port: Different ports have different fees and this can influence the cost of shipping.
  • The peak period for shipping items to Serbia is between July and October. Shipping during this period can influence the cost of shipping because of high demand.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

If you don’t have experience in shipping containers, you might not know what size is appropriate for your items. Let us help you do the math. A 20ft shipping container will contain the contents of a three-bedroom flat. Alternatively, it will contain a single car with no space. If you know that your cargo is more than these estimates, a 40ft container will be a better option.

If your items fill up a container and you don’t want to share the container with another client, then your load is called a Full Container Load (FCL). Not every shipment requires a container to itself. For such items, loading them with other items from different clients is done. This kind of load is called Less Than Container Load (LCL). Both are measured in cubic meters.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

The primary methods of freight transportation are sea, air, ground, and rail. For Serbia, all methods of transportation are used because it is landlocked.

Shipping containers to the country by sea is suitable for large cargo because it is more cost-effective. Cars, household items, and food are usually shipped by the sea. Since this country is landlocked, ocean freight shipments will still involve land transportation because the containers will be docked at another country’s port and then transported inland by vehicles or train.

You could also consider air freight shipping services. In this case, it is important to note that costs might be higher than sea freight. It is usually suitable for smaller volume items and items of a time-sensitive nature.

Additional Shipping Costs

The previously mentioned primary factors that affect cost aren’t the only things to consider when shipping a container. Sometimes there are added costs like:

  • Insurance: You might have to pay a premium for your shipment.
  • Custom fees: Serbia has a free duty tax on shipments less than $50 in value. If it is above $50 then you will have to pay a 20% fee on the shipment.
  • Inspection: Shipping to the country is bound to incur inspection fees. It is worth noting.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): This is the increase or reduction of shipping rates determined by the high demand of shipments through a route. For Serbia, the GRI might add to the shipping cost as they don’t own a seaport.
  • Delivery Times: If you desire quicker shipping, you might pay a higher price.
