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

Suriname Container Shipping Cost

A person that wants to ship items will first and foremost consider the cost of shipping. In considering the cost, the person will have to think of the distance the items have to travel, how big the items are, and how heavy they are. They might think about what moving company to use as well. For the last factor, we have a simple solution. Three Movers ships to Suriname.

For all the other factors affecting the shipping of items, we have an explanation that can guide the person.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Suriname

If a person wants to know what will affect the cost of shipping, the following factors are a good place to start:

  • The type of transportation used: Air transportation is more expensive when transporting people and the same goes for cargo. This means the type of transportation you pick will affect the cost of shipping.
  • Distance: The further your cargo has to travel, the more expensive it will be. For example, shipping from Brazil to Suriname will be cheaper than shipping from Greenland.
  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped: The volume and weight of your item will affect the cost of shipping. An increase in volume will lead to an increase in the cost of shipping your cargo.
  • The destination port: Depending on the port that your shipment arrives at, the cost of shipping might be higher or lower as different ports have different rules.
  • Peak Shipping Season: A lot of shipping to and from Suriname, happens between July and October. If you plan on shipping your cargo at this time, plan months ahead, and prepare for higher shipping rates.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Do you know that for general purposes, shipping container sizes can be divided into two sizes? There are the 20ft shipping containers and the 40ft shipping containers. The 20ft containers will be enough to move all your family’s items if you all lived in a three-bedroom apartment. If on the other hand, you live in a mansion, or you want to ship two or more cars, you will need a 40ft container.

In the situations listed above, you will need a container for yourself. In such a case, your load will be called a Full Container Load. In other situations, you won’t be using a container alone because you don’t have much to ship. Your things will be aggregated with other clients’ items. This kind of loading is called Less than Full Container Load (LCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Assuming you want to ship some items to Suriname, you have three options of land, air, and sea.

If your cargo is coming from a neighboring country like Guyana, land might be a viable option of transportation as it will make the transportation as straightforward and as cheap as possible.

If your items are coming from a farther country, sea freight transportation is a viable option. It is particularly useful for high-volume items and items for business purposes.

For time-sensitive items, of lower volume and weight, transportation by air is a good option. Note that it might be more expensive so, if you are looking for a cost-effective method, consider sea transportation.

Additional Shipping Costs

Apart from the main factors that affect the cost of shipping, other things might add to it. They are:

  • Insurance: Items being shipped to another country should have a form of insurance as a cover for damage or loss.
  • Custom fees: In Suriname, custom fees range from 0 to 50% of the value of the goods.
  • Inspection: There is a chance that your items will be inspected and that inspection will come at a cost.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): If a shipping route has high traffic, the shipping rates might increase. This is called GRI and it is driven by demand.
  • Delivery Times: There is a standard shipping time with items but if you desire faster shipping times, you might have to pay more.
