Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

With international shipments, there are a few main factors to consider. There is volume/weight of the items to be shipped since the more items or the heavier they are, the more it’ll cost. Next, your choice of transport. Sea freights cost cheaper in comparison to air freights but it is a slower option than the latter. You must also consider the distance to be traveled by your shipment from the point of origin. The farther it is, the higher the cost.

Port fees will vary from port to port and can affect the total cost of your shipping. Since you are shipping to Uruguay, there are 8 ports to be considered especially the Port of Montevideo which is considered the country’s major port.

Shipping in between the months of August to October will also affect the freight shipping rates. This is due to the fact that these months are considered peak season for shipment.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

You can choose between the 20ft and 40ft containers. The 20ft container can fit 3 bedrooms’ worth of items or approximately about 400 flat-screen TVs. The 40ft container can fit double the 20ft container’s amount.

If you think that a 20ft container is too large for your shipment, you can always choose the Less Than Cargo Load option (LCL). This is a group shipment option that ships your items in a container shared with other customers. If you feel like you can fully load a container, the Full Cargo Load option (FCL) is also available.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

There are three types of transportation modes: Land, Sea, or Air. Since you are shipping to Uruguay, you can choose between sea and air.

Sea freight transportation: Shipping process by sea is the slowest option available. However, if you’re shipping large volumes of cargo, this is the way to go. It is about five times cheaper than air freight transportation.

Air freight transportation: If you want a faster option, this is the one for you. Shipping using a cargo plane can only take a few days in most cases. However, this is the most expensive out of all the options. Weight is also a factor to be considered when it comes to this mode of transportation.

Additional Shipping Costs

When shipping internationally, there are additional shipping costs to be considered. This is normal and to be expected. They are:

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

Additional fees like Custom Duties are unavoidable. However, this will largely differ depending on the destination country and port. Depending on the location, you might be charged with general inspection, customs clearance, and quarantine fees.

Insurance is a must for every shipment as this ensures that you are well-protected in case any kind of damage or accident occurs during the shipment process.
