Cost of Shipping a Container to Timor-Leste

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To Timor-Leste?

Timor-Leste Container Shipping Cost

Are you considering shipping your cargo to Timor-Leste? You will need a shipping company that you can trust. That is where we come in. We have a reputation for assisting our clients in shipping their cargo without problems. We can make your shipping process easier by guiding you through it. Whether you want your items container delivered to a port, airport, or home, at competitive prices we can make it possible.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Shipping

International shipping requires a lot of research and calculations before deciding an affordable price. These are the main factors affecting shipping rates and estimates to Timor-Leste.

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

Understandably, we don't want to leave an item behind while relocating or shipping your goods. It is important to note that the inclusion of more items increases the volume and price for transportation. However, you can choose a freight plan whether air freight or ocean freight, at cost effective price for high-volume cargo.

Type of Transport

Choosing a freight plan can help you save costs and determine the speed of delivering your cargo. Cargoes sent through air deliver quickly and are not often affected by infrastructure. Cargoes sent by sea are slow to arrive but sea freight offers a cheap price for transporting high-volume cargo. Trucks can only be used for items coming from Timor-Leste. Trucks can also carry your items from the ports or airport to your home. Railway freight is not possible as the country does not have an established railway system. Each of these freight has different prices and can affect the time of delivering your cargo.

The Distance of the Journey

Everyday transportation makes us understand that long-distance journeys cost more than short distance journeys. Location differences also impact your cost of shipping to any location.

The Destination Port

Custom charges by your destination port can increase the cost of shipping your cargo. Custom regulations can also impact the time of delivering your cargo. It is important to be aware of customs regulations to Timor-Leste and get information on their charges and regulations. You can access the official customs site of Timor-Leste by clicking here.

What Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Container sizes vary and are chosen based on the need and size of your cargo. If your cargo is small, the 20ft container is your best choice. Cargoes of high volume and number require the use of a 40ft container.

How Big is a 20Ft Container?

Containers of 20ft can accommodate volumes of about thirty cartons of items. It can carry volumes of over 20000kg but not more than 25000kg. It can carry a car easily or two small or standard-sized cars, but it cannot fit more items. Items of more volume will require a 40ft container.

How Big is a 40ft Container?

It has more length than a 20ft container and provides more space for the transportation of your cargo. Using a 40ft container with space makes it easy for the loading and unloading of your cargo. This saves us time in delivering your cargo to your home or port.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

You will decide between using full container loads or a less than container load service. The full container load service will give you the privacy of using a container for your cargo. It also ensures that you can carry up to the full volume of the container. The less than container load service does not have the privacy advantage. You will use the container with other users and share the cost as well. This option is cheaper but is easily applicable to clients with a small volume of cargo.

Additional Shipping Costs

Other required charges on international shipping are listed below:

  • Customs duties
  • General Rate Increase (GRI)
  • Container inspection fees
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance cover
