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

Vietnam Container Shipping Cost

Shipping to any area worldwide is not going to be a one-man job. The logistics are enough to make anyone cross out the plan and just stay in their place. However, Three Movers isn’t an ordinary container shipping company. We have a team of professional experts trained and shaped to assist you throughout the shipping process, providing you the exact details for you to make the most accurate decision. And not only that; we also ship to Vietnam! So, let’s begin going through the most important aspects of shipping.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Vietnam

When shipping a container to a different country, there are several factors to consider such as the volume and weight of the items to be shipped, the type of transportation used, the distance, the destination port, and the country’s peak period. These factors determine the cost of shipping a container.

Since Vietnam is also connected to neighboring countries, truck freights can also be availed. But if you are shipping from the West or other faraway countries, you have two options; it’s either by sea or air.

You also need to take into consideration the volume and weight of the items to be shipped. The heavier the weight, the more costly it will be. The same goes for volume.

When it comes to destination ports, Da Nang around ho chi minh city is the one to go to in Vietnam. Destination ports should also be thought of because port fees may vary. There is a list of products or goods that this port won’t accept to be imported so you have to look out for that.

Vietnam’s peak period is during May, June, and September. If you don’t like being around busy crowds and paying expensive additional fees, avoid shipping during these months.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

It may get overwhelming to choose the most appropriate shipping container given all the options available. However, most of our clients pick between a 20-ft and a 40-ft container. A 20-ft container can fit the items of a 3-bedroom house. This is as big as an average garage which means that you can very much get a car shipped but must purchase another container for your other belongings if that’s the case. If you think you need more space, choose the 40-ft option instead.

In case you realize that the container is too spacious for your items, you can either share with another client or more, or you can just pay the extra price and take the containers as yours. The downside of sharing it with others is that there are certain items you may not be able to ship because the sharers might be against having those items near their belongings. The good thing is it will be less costly. That’s how the Less Than Container Load (LCL) works.

On the other hand, if you choose Full Load Container (FCL), not only does your container be shipped faster and more secured but you can also keep it to yourself.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

There are two ways to ship your container; either via air or sea. Here are their differences:

  • Sea Freight Transportation. If you are saving up in cost and you don’t worry about its shipping duration, it is advisable to take the sea freight option.
  • Air Freight Transportation. If you are on a deadline to container shipped and you want your items to be more secured, then you can choose the air freight shipping. But you also have to pay 5x the price of the sea freight option.

Additional Shipping Costs

As already mentioned, shipping costs are affected by five factors such as:

  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped
  • The type of transportation used
  • Distance
  • The destination port
  • The peak period

But that’s not everything that you will pay for. Due to other shipping procedures, there are potential incremental costs and these are the Insurance, Custom fees, inspection, General Rate Increase (GRI), Delivery Times.
