Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are a few main factors we have to think about when international shipping. Distance is the obvious one to be considered. The further away your international shipments will be from the departure port, the more it’ll cost. What you’ll be using as transport is another factor. Ocean freight shipping will be slow but cost less. Air freights, on the other hand, will reach the destination faster but is an expensive option.

The volume or weight of the items will vary depending on your mode of shipping. The price is measured directly proportional to the number of items. It is important to remember that sea freights use volume and weight for air freight.

The destination port and the season of the year is something you have to think about too. For the United Arab Emirates shipping, Jebel Ali is one of the major ports and the biggest. The peak season for shipping is between August to October as people are gearing up for back-to-school and holiday seasons. It will affect your shipping cost.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Choosing the appropriate container for your shipment understandably comes with a lot of questions. Like most people, you can start by checking out the 20ft or 40ft containers. The former can fit the contents of a small household (about three bedrooms) while the latter can accommodate double the amount. Another way of visualizing it is that the 20ft container can fit 50-60 fridges. More than that and the best option would be to use a 40ft container.

To make it better for you, you have two modes to choose from. If you want to fill the container up to the last square inch, which is a popular option, you’d want to go with the Full Container Load option (FCL). If you don’t have enough items to fill a container, you can always opt for the Less Then Container Load option (LCL).

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

There are three types of cargo transportation methods you can choose from: land, sea freight, and air freight transportation.

Land freight transportation is the cheapest option but it is only available for countries connected by land.

Since you are shipping to the UAE, you can choose between sea and air cargo shipping. Shipping by plane is the fastest option but it has certain restrictions when it comes to your shipment’s weight. Shipping via cargo ships is more lenient when it comes to weight since they account for volume. They are significantly slower than planes, but they are also cheaper.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are a few more shipping costs to be considered. This is normal and something to be expected. They are:

  • Custom duties
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance

Insurance is important when shipping your items. This can ensure that whatever happens, you are well-protected. Insurance fees usually depend on the monetary value of your items rather than the weight or volume.
