Affordable Cost Of Shipping A Container To Seychelles

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

Seychelles Container Shipping Cost

In your search to understand what will affect the cost of shipping to another country, you might get more confused than when you began. Well, we are here to explain what it all entails. Three Movers ship containers to Seychelles and from experience, we can tell you that the weight or volume of your shipment and the distance it has to travel, affects the cost of shipping.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Seychelles

Some factors will affect the cost of shipping. They are:

  • The volume and weight of the items in the shipping boxes to be shipped: The more the volume or weight of your shipment, the more the cost of shipping.
  • The type of transportation used: Transportation by air is quick but it is more expensive than by sea, in most cases that is.
  • Distance: The farther the shipment has to travel, the higher the cost of shipping.
  • The destination port: Different ports have different methods of operation and this will affect the cost of shipping.
  • The peak period: The busiest shipping time to Seychelles is between June and September. Sometimes, January and February are busy as well because of the Chinese New Year. If you ship your items during these periods the high demand might increase the cost of shipping.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

A 20ft container might sound strange to you if you don’t really know how big a 20ft container is. Well, to make it as simple as possible, we will use the contents of your house to explain. Think of all the items in a three-bedroom flat. That is what will fill a 20ft container. If you want to ship your car, know that it will occupy a 20ft container with no space to add anything else. If your items are more in volume than this, then consider getting a 40ft container.

If your cargo is enough to fill a container by itself, then your load will be called a Full Container Load (FCL). If your items are less than a container load, then your shipment will be aggregated with other clients’ items. This kind of load is called Less Than a Container Load (LCL). Both are measured in cubic meters.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Sea, air, land, and rail are the primary methods of transporting cargo. Shipping by sea and air are the two common methods of importing items into Seychelles, air freight and ocean freight shipping.

If you want to ship household goods, cars, or many items like bananas, shipping by sea is a better choice. For large-volume cargo sea freight services is more cost-effective.

Assuming your shipment is time-sensitive or fragile, you might want to consider transportation by air. It is more expensive than transportation by sea but it gets to the destination faster.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are always added costs to the main cost of shipping and they are worth considering. They are:

  • Insurance: If you want your items insured, your costs will increase.
  • Custom fees: Seychelles sets a 15% value import fee on any shipment being brought into the country. So, consider this added cost.
  • Inspection: Your shipment might be inspected at the port and this will incur costs.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): This is the increase or reduction of shipping rates on certain routes due to the peculiarity of that route like high demand or insecurity.
  • Delivery Times: The shorter the delivery time you request, the higher the cost. So, your requested shipping speed might add to the overall cost.
