Cost of Shipping a Container to Sudan

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

Sudan Container Shipping Cost

You might know from ordering parcels online that the size of your order and the distance it has to travel to come to you affects the shipping cost that is added to your purchasing cost. Well, the same principle applies to shipping a container to any part of the world. The size and the distance to travel as important as they are, aren’t the only things to consider when shipping a container to another country. Three Movers ship items to Sudan and we will help you understand what it all entails.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Sudan

To understand why your shipping will have its cost, some elements cannot be ignored:

  • Distance: Shipping items from Nigeria to Sudan can’t be the same cost as shipping from Mexico. The farther the distance the higher the cost.
  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped: The heavier a thing the harder it is to transport. This is why the weight or volume of cargo affects the cost of shipping.
  • The type of transportation used: There are different types of transportation and these different types have different costs. For example, shipping by air might be more expensive than by road.
  • The destination port: Different countries have different tariffs at their different ports. This can contribute to the cost of shipping.
  • Peak Shipping Season: The peak shipping season in Sudan is normally between August and October. If you decide to ship during this period, prepare for a surcharge.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

146 sq ft might seem like a strange number for you but it is a measure of the space in a 20ft container. If that doesn’t help, there are other ways to estimate it. Most shipping containers come in 20 or 40ft sizes. A 20ft container can hold all your items if you plan on shipping the contents of your three-bedroom flat. If you have more load than an average three-bedroom can contain, consider getting a 40ft container.

If you are moving your household goods, getting a container to yourself is inevitable. In that case, your load will be called a Full Container Load (FCL). In other situations, you just want to ship a few things. In this case, you won’t be using a container alone. Your things will be put together with other clients’ items. This kind of loading is called Less than Full Container Load (LCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

There are four main types of transportation and they are air, sea, land, and rail. Depending on what you want to ship when you want it to arrive, the landscape of the country, and the cost you are willing to pay, you might pick any of these four options.

In most cases, shipping from another country will involve shipping from air or sea to a port and then taking the shipment inland by land or rail.

Freight transportation by sea is useful for high-volume shipping items. As air freight transportation, has a stricter weight cap compared to sea transport, it will be better to transport heavy objects by sea. Also, sea transportation is cost-effective.

Freight transportation by air is particularly useful if you want to send time-sensitive items or items that are fragile. Note that generally, air transport is the most expensive method of transportation.

Additional Shipping Costs

Some costs might be easy to miss when considering the cost. They are:

  • Insurance: When shipping items to another country, insurance is a good idea.
  • Custom fees: Sudan has an average import duty of 20% on items. It can be more or less depending on the exact product being imported.
  • Inspection: There is a chance that your items will be inspected and that inspection will not be free.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): If shipping demand for a particular route is high, the shipping rate increases. This is GRI and it can influence the cost of shipping.
  • Delivery Times: You might get your initial estimates but you aren’t satisfied with the delivery time. Requesting quicker delivery times will increase the cost of shipping.
