Cost of Shipping a Container to Sweden

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

Sweden Container Shipping Cost

You might want to ship a container and not know where to begin. To begin with this, Three Movers ships items to Sweden. There are things that you should consider when shipping to the European country. The size of your cargo and the distance to the destination will affect the cost of customers shipping. We also help with shipping goods either from ocean freight or land freight of any method of shipping including ocean shipping. There are, of course, other things to consider. Let us walk you through them.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Sweden

When looking at an estimate, it is easy to wonder how the shipping cost is calculated. The following things are used to calculate the shipping cost:

  • The type of transportation used: Not all means of transportation are equal and that applies to shipping boxes. Air, sea, and land aren’t the same cost and your choice of transportation will affect the cost of shipping.
  • Distance: The distance to the destination will influence the cost of shipping. The farther away it is, the higher the shipping cost.
  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped: With an increase in either volume or weight, comes an increase in shipping cost and vice versa.
  • The destination port: Depending on the port your cargo arrives at, your shipping cost might be more or less as different ports have different fees and procedures.
  • Peak Shipping Season: The general peak of Sweden shipping period is between August and October but can extend to November. Shipping at this period incurs higher shipping costs than other parts of the year.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Are you planning on shipping a car? Or the contents of your three-bedroom flat? Do you have 100 washing machines to ship? Then, a 20ft container will be adequate for your needs. If you however plan on shipping goods more than this, a 40ft container will be a better option.

There are two types of container load and you must know this as it can affect the cost of shipping.

If your cargo fills a shipping container, or you want a shipping container to yourself, then the kind of load you should choose is the Full Container Load (FCL).

On the other hand, assuming your cargo won’t fill a 20ft container, you can opt for a Less Than Container Load (LCL). In this type of loading, different items from different clients are put together in the same container.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Transportation of cargo by sea is very popular in the European Country. Its ports are very accessible by ships and they are very organized. Sea freight transportation is particularly good if you have high-volume or cost-sensitive items to ship, with the clause that you don’t mind waiting a bit.

Transportation of freight by road is possible if the cargo is coming from Norway or Finland. In that case, the cost-effectiveness of road transportation from neighboring European countries cannot be beaten.

If your items are time-sensitive or fragile, air freight transportation is the way to go. It might cost more, mind you, but you will get your items in time.

Additional Shipping Costs

Additional shipping costs are usually costs that don’t come directly from the company but have to be added to the bill:

  • Insurance: Insurance isn’t free and having it for your items will add to the overall cost.
  • Custom fees: For certain items from certain European Union Countries, importing into Sweden is duty-free. For others, it can range from 0-15%.
  • Inspection: Depending on the items you are shipping in, you might pay for inspection and that will add to your shipping cost.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): If the traffic on the shipping route to the country is in high demand there will be a general rate increase.
  • Delivery Times: Assuming you want your items to arrive faster than the normal times, you will have to pay more for quicker delivery.
