Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

The cost of shipping a container internationally is determined by several factors, including container size, load size, loading and delivery options, and shipping method. We'll go through each category in detail to assist you in planning and budgeting for overseas shipping costs.

Container Size

When exporting items internationally, you'll need to figure out what size of shipping container you'll need. Shipping containers are available in a variety of sizes and prices. The larger alternatives are more expensive, but they provide additional packing and shipping volume.

Load Size

The size of your load can also affect the price of shipping your container internationally. "Full container load (FCL)" and "less than a container load (LCL)" are the two categories used to describe load sizes.

Loading and Delivery Options

The way you load and deliver your items has an impact on the total cost. When it comes to loading and delivery methods, there are typically three options to consider. Port-to-port, door-to-door, and drop-and-fill are the three options.

As the name implies, "port to port" entails transporting your goods from one port to another. It's the most cost-effective option. The "door to door" option is the most straightforward and comprehensive option. The shipping company will load the products from your house or office, then unload and unpack them when they arrive at their destination. Door-to-door moving is often the most expensive choice.

Finally, in a drop and fill move, the freight company will deliver a shipping container to you, which you will be responsible for filling and unloading when it arrives at its destination.

Shipping Method

There are various options for shipping a container internationally, each with its own cost, benefits, and cons. There are three types of freight: land, sea, and air.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

  • Land Freight: Trucks and railroads are frequently utilized for domestic and transcontinental shipping. Land transportation has the advantage of being inexpensive and generally efficient, but it has the disadvantage of being limited to areas that can be reached by road or rail.
  • Sea Freight: This is the most cost-effective but also the most time-consuming method of exporting internationally. Sea freight delivery times range from a few days to several weeks, depending on the route and destination.
  • Air Freight: This isn't used often to send a container internationally because of its exorbitant cost. When compared to sea freight, air freight is more expensive and the fastest means.

Difference Between FCL And LCL

The term "less container load" (LCL) implies your stuff will most likely be shipped in the same container as someone else's. LCL is a wonderful choice for transporting small items or shipping on a tight budget. A full container load (FCL) implies your things are not mixed in with those of another party, it is a much easier alternative for both the sender and the shipping provider.

Additional Shipping Costs

You may incur additional shipping expenses, which include the following:

  • Insurance
  • Import duties
  • Storage fee (if the shipping company has to provide a temporary store for your goods
  • Value-added-tax (Tanzania's regular VAT rate is 18% in mainland Tanzania and 15% in Tanzania Zanzibar)
  • General Rate Increase
