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

Thailand Container Shipping Cost

Thailand is a Southeast Asian country that is known for its beautiful royal palaces, tropical beaches, and impressive Buddhist traditions. The country, which was formerly known as Siam, is now officially known as the Kingdom of Thailand.

As expert movers, our crew at Three Movers is one of the top international shipping companies that engages in the shipping of containers to the Kingdom of Thailand among other regions in the world. We're aware that a significant amount of people faces difficulties regarding the shipping of containers to Thailand. Hence, we've put up a guide that'll aid concerned individuals to understand how to calculate the cost of shipping a container to Thailand.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Shipping a Container

The cost of shipping a container across international borders is influenced by certain vital circumstances. For instance, an increase in the weight or volume of the goods will cause an increase in the cost of shipping just as an increase in the shipping distance will do the same. In addition to that, making use of a privately owned port instead of a public port will require you to pay a higher cost of shipping. Employing air cargo transportation rather than sea cargo transportation will also considerably increase the cost of shipping.

Similarly, shipping a container between August and September will substantially rain up the cost of international shipping due to higher demand for shipments. Thus, this period is referred to as the "peak season".

Therefore, the primary factors that affect the cost of shipping are the weight or volume of the goods, shipping distance, shipping freight, international shipping service, freight forwarders, destination port, medium of transportation, and season.

Which Size of Shipping Container is Most Suitable for Me?

Depending on size, there are two types of shipping containers. These include the 20 ft container and the 40 ft container. The 20 ft container is roughly the size of three bedrooms. This fact indicates that it can contain 4000 shoeboxes. On the other hand, the 40 ft container can contain 8000 shoeboxes, which is twice the amount of shoeboxes that can be contained by the 20 ft container.

You should choose a shipping container based on the weight or volume of your goods rather than the price of the container. It's also noteworthy that a 40ft container doesn't always evoke a cost that is twice that of a 20ft container.

Understanding the Different Types of Cargo Transportation

Similar to the four major means of transportation, the common types of cargo transportation are air freight shipping, ocean freight, land freight, sea freight, and rail/train transportation. Shipping goods to the Kingdom of Thailand from regions outside Asia commonly involves all four of the major means of cargo transportation.

Air cargo transportation is no doubt the fastest means of moving cargo. On the negative side, it's the most expensive means of cargo transportation. Although sea cargo transportation is relatively slower than air cargo transportation, it has a reputation of being cheaper and is capable of conveying more shipments. In all considerations, rail/train cargo transportation takes a middle stand.

Thus, it's essential to choose your means of cargo transportation based on your priorities.

Additional Shipping Costs

The average rate of customs duty in Thailand is 7.2%. About one-third of Thailand’s MFN tariff schedule requires the payment of duties of less than 5%. Meanwhile, 30% of tariff lines are MFN duty-free, including, electronics, industrial machinery, and paper. Shipping a container to Thailand may require the payment of the following charges:

  • Thai custom fees
  • Container inspection fees
  • General rate increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance fees
  • Thai Import Tax
