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

Turkmenistan Container Shipping Cost

People who want to send items to a new country soon realize, after a short google search, that things aren’t as simple as ordering a pair of shoes online. Some things need to be considered when looking at the cost of shipping internationally. The size of your shipment and the distance to the target nation, are things worth thinking about. However, there is one pretty straightforward element which is the company you should use for shipping. Three Movers ship items to Turkmenistan. Three Movers is an international shipping company that renders relocation services to shipping lines service and full container loads.

We will proceed to give you the information you need.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Turkmenistan

Some elements influence the cost of shipping items and they are:

  • The volume and weight of the shipment: If you have ever carried something heavy for a distance you know that weight and volume will influence the cost of any transportation.
  • The choice of transportation: The choice of transportation for your items will influence the cost of shipping, as different methods of transportation have different rates.
  • Distance: The distance the cargo has to travel to get to its destination, will influence the cost of shipping. The farther the distance, the higher the cost.
  • Destination Port: The port the items will arrive at, might influence the cost of shipping as ports are unique in every way including their fees.
  • Peak Period: The general peak shipping period is between August and October but due to the unique position of Turkmenistan, the Chinese New Year gives it a second peak period of January to February. Shipping at any of these times is bound to incur higher costs.

Additional Shipping Costs

Some costs are easy to miss when getting your estimates. These costs are usually not determined by the company and they are:

  • Customs fees: The country of Turkmenistan has a general 2% import duties rate for all items brought into the country. This 2% has to be factored into the shipping cost.
  • Insurance: You need to have a form of cover for your items. This will, of course, come at a premium.
  • Inspection: If your items are inspected, the cost of shipping might go up.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): If the shipping route used to get to the country is a major route, there might be a general rate increase for all items that pass through that route.
  • Delivery Times: The faster you want items shipped, the higher the cost of shipping.

Which Size of Shipping Container Will Meet My Needs?

The 20ft shipping container will be good for you if your cargo is similar in size to a mid-sized car or 50 fridges. Alternatively, if your items are more than the average number of items in a three-bedroom flat, you will need a 40ft container.

Considering the reality that many clients don’t need a full container to themselves, there is an option to share a container with other clients. This kind of load is called Less Than Container Load (LCL). The cost is calculated in cubic meters. If your items can fill a container then your load will be in the Full Container Load (FCL) system.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Transportation choice is influenced by many things but most times it is the choice of the client. If you are, however shipping from a far country to another country, you have two options.

The first option is the transportation of cargo by sea. It accounts for more than three-quarters of all international freight transportation and there is a reason for that. Ocean freight is cost-effective and is suitable for high-volume cargo.

Freight transportation by air, on the other hand, is suitable for packages that need to arrive at the destination as quickly as possible. It is important to know that the shipping rates are generally higher when shipping by air.
