Cost Of Shipping a Container to Tunisia

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

Tunisia Container Shipping Cost

When shipping a container to Tunisia, you have several factors to consider. It also depends on where you are going to pick them up. There are certain restrictions and certifications that you will have to be wary of if you want a smoother transaction when it comes to shipping and its logistics. Sounds daunting, doesn’t it? This is why Three Movers is here to provide you generalized information on shipping costs.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Tunisia

When shipping a container internationally, there are some factors to consider when it comes to the cost such as:

  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped. The heavier the container is, the more costly it will be. The same idea applies to the number of goods inside of it.
  • The type of transportation used. There are two modes of transportation to choose from; it’s either via air or sea. Air freight is 5x more costly the most sea freight services yet it ships faster.
  • Distance: The greater the length of the place you’re shipping from, the more expensive it will be.
  • The destination port: The largest port in Tunisia is Rades Port which is located in La Goulette, Tunis. It can handle an 80% approximate of containerized traffic and movement of rolling units with over 300,000 twenty-foot equivalent units per year.
  • The peak period. If you don’t want expensive air freight transportation costs, it is best to avoid shipping a container during the months of February, April, and May. You can save more if you ship during the month of November while the demand for air freight services is low.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

It can easily become stressful to plan which mode of transportation you ought to avail for your container’s shipment, especially if you do it alone. What more if you try to look for the best shipping container that can fit your goods just right? That is why Three Movers is here to assist you throughout the process, and move your belongings from door to door.

Most of our clients choose between 20-foot or 40-foot containers. Can you just imagine fitting the entire contents of a three-bedroom house into the container? That’s how a 20-foot is like. For a 40-foot container, just visualize an average garage and think of it as how huge the container will be. This means that you can easily fit a vehicle into it and have it shipped wherever you want to.

Other than your container’s size, you must also take into consideration its type of load mode. A full-size container usually goes best with the Full Container Loads (FCL) option. On the other hand, if you don’t have enough goods to fit into the container, you will be advised to take the smaller choice which is called the Less Than a Container option.
