Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

While we can easily send your container to Taiwan, the following criteria should be taken into account when selecting the freight option that best suits your budget and needs.

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

The type of shipment you select has a significant impact on your shipping costs. Sea freight, for example, is more concerned with the size of your goods, whilst air freight is more concerned with their weight. As a result, the manner of delivery you use will be determined by your items.

Type of Transport

International shipment to Taiwan can be accomplished by air, sea, or land (truck). However, the most popular modes of transport are sea freight and air freight. Ocean freight is the less expensive of the two options, and it is significantly less expensive than air freight. Air freight shipping, on the other hand, provides the benefit of speed because your things arrive faster than by sea, which can take anywhere from 15 to 85 days depending on the distance.

The Journey Distance

Everyone recognizes that the longer the shipping distance, the higher the cost. Additionally, the cost of shipping is typically influenced when your things are delivered from door to door or port to port.

Destination Port

Every country has customs duties and taxes for goods that are imported. Shipping to Taiwan requires a flat $44 rate. Taiwan has a duty rate ranging from 0% to 30%, with an average of 6.25 percent. Items worth less than 3000 TWD are duty-free. Taiwanese sales tax is 5%, depending on CIF (cost, insurance, and freight).

Peak Season

When it comes to international shipping, there is typically a high season. This usually occurs between August and October, with a minor occurrence in January and February. Because shipping is normally more expensive during these times, it's best to ship your goods in the middle of the year.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

It is dependent on the size of your merchandise. Your goods will most likely be transported in a 20-foot or 40-foot container. A 20-foot container can hold the contents of a three-bedroom home, whereas a 40-foot container can hold twice as much.

Difference Between FCL and LCL

When you pay for a full container for your shipments, the whole container load is used. Clients who are unable to estimate the size of their things or believe they are too small to pay for a 40ft container may choose the less than container load option, in which case they will share the container with other clients who choose the same shipping choice. Mind you, FCL travel times are usually faster, whereas LCL is less expensive.

Additional Shipping Cost

  • Customs duties
  • General Rate Increase (GRI)
