Cost of Shipping a Container To Slovakia

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

When considering the cost of shipping a container, there are many things to think about. The cargo weight you intend to ship and the distance to the destination are obvious things that will affect the cost of shipping. Three Movers offers shipping services such s ships items to Slovakia and we will help you understand all the factors that will affect the to ship containers of any cargo weight to any country.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Slovakia

Some factors will affect the cost of shipping because they are the metrics by which shipping is calculated.

The volume and weight of the items to be shipped will affect the cost of shipping. As the weight of what you want to ship increases, the cost of shipping will increase. This is the same for the volume.

The type of transportation used will affect the cost of shipping. Air travel in most cases is more expensive than sea transportation. Shipping to Slovakia, in particular, might be just as expensive by sea because it doesn’t have its own seaport so there may be added costs to get the items inland.

Distance to the destination will affect the cost of shipping. The farther the distance to the destination, the higher the cost of shipping.

The destination port affects the cost of shipping. Each port has its fees and duties. This affects the cost of shipping.

The peak period influences the cost of shipping. May to October is the busiest period for shipping in Slovakia. If you pick this period to send your goods, you might pay higher rates.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

Knowing the size of shipping containers that will fit your cargo is very difficult. With our experience, we made it a tad easier. If you are moving the contents of your three-bedroom flat or 100 washing machines, you will need a 20ft container. Anything more than that will require a 40ft container.

If you fill a container, the loading system is called Full Container Load (FCL). If your cargo isn’t that much and it comprises a few items, then you will require the Less Than a Container Load (LCL). Different items from different clients are aggregated into a single container. The payment rates for LCL are measured in cubic meters.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Most of the items shipped in the world are transported internationally by air and sea. However, for landlocked countries like Slovakia, land transportation is very important because that is how the sea cargo is brought into the country from the coastlines of neighboring countries.

Sea freight is good for high-volume cargo because heavy cargo can be easily transported and it is cost-effective.

Air freight transportation is suitable for small-sized packages. It is also particularly preferred for time-sensitive cargo. Note, that air transportation is more expensive than sea or land in most cases.

Additional Shipping Costs

Sometimes there are added costs to the estimate that you are given. These added costs include:

  • Insurance: To have a cover for your items, you might need insurance and this adds to the overall cost.
  • Custom fees: Slovakia has a value-added tax (VAT) of 10 or 23% depending on the type of item being imported. This is an added cost to consider.
  • Inspection: Your shipment might be inspected and this adds to the overall cost of shipping.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): Certain shipping routes incur higher rates due to the high traffic that passes that route. Security also affects the cost of shipping.
  • Delivery Times: Delivery times affect the cost of shipping as express shipping is more expensive than normal speed shipping.
