Tuvalu Container Shipping Cost

Factors That Affect the Cost Of Shipping A Container To Tuvalu

There are a lot of variables to be considered when thinking about the cost of international shipping, but we will focus on the five most important ones: the volume/weight of the items to be shipped, the distance, the mode of transportation, the destination port, and when you’ll be shipping your items.

You are aware that distance and cargo volume are major contributors to overall costs. So let us go into greater detail about the other considerations. Whether you choose to travel by land sea or air your transportation costs will vary. One of the most common and inexpensive choices is shipping via sea whereas shipping via air is both quicker and more expensive. Whether or not you can reach your final port via land depends on where you are starting from.

There is one major port in Tuvalu: Funafuti. All overseas shipments arrive at this port and will be passed on to the inter-island cargo service for distribution.

The peak season for shipments is between August to October. It is during this season that people are gearing up for the holidays.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

We could go over the 16 different types of containers available for use, but you will most likely be using two: the 20ft container and the 40ft container.

If you are shipping around the equivalent of 3 bedrooms worth of stuff, the 20ft container is the best choice. You can also ship a car using this container, but it won’t be able to hold anything else. If you’re shipping a vehicle along with other items, the 40ft container is for you.

If you’re worried about not being able to fill a container, the Less Than Cargo Load (LCL) option is your friend. With this option, you’ll be sharing with other customers who availed of this type of loading. If you need to fill a container, the Full Cargo Load (FCL) is the choice for you since it is cost-efficient and ensures that your items are safe and secure.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

You can choose between land, sea, or air as your preferred mode of transportation. However, land transport is only available to destinations reachable by roads. As a beautiful island country in the Pacific, your best choices are either sea or air.

Sea freight transportation is five times cheaper than air freight transportation, but it takes a longer time to reach the port of destination compared to the latter, which can reach the port of destination in a few days.

Additional Shipping Costs

There will be additional shipping costs when shipping internationally. It is normal and expected, but it can differ for each country. They are:

  • Custom duties
  • Container inspection fees
  • VAT
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Insurance
  • Quarantine Fees

Getting insurance for your shipment is highly recommended because it ensures that you are protected in case damages or accidents occur.
