Calculating the cost of shipping a container requires a lot of knowledge of customs and freight types. Three Men And A Truck can take care of that for you. We ship to many countries, including Algeria. When you work with us you will have the assurance of working with an internationally recognized company. We can help you get started by explaining the things you’ll need to know when it comes to the cost of shipping.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

There’s a lot to consider when it comes to the price of an international shipping project. Distance is a given, but you also have to think about the customs and fees of the country you’ll be shipping to. Another factor is the method of transportation you select, which will largely depend on how fast you want your items to arrive. The method of transportation also determines whether the volume or weight of the cargo is more important in terms of cost.

A way to reduce costs is to ship outside of the peak season. The period from August to October is considered the peak season, which means higher prices and lower capacity. The time between January and February can also have higher costs due to its proximity to the Chinese New Year.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

The two main container sizes are 20ft and 40ft. 20ft is for households up to 3 bedrooms big and 40ft for 4 and higher. Depending on the amount of items, and what you are planning to ship, you should select the one that better accommodates your stuff. Shipping containers are also split into two options: Full Container Load (FCL) and Less Than Container Load. The former is traditionally the most cost-effective option, and it keeps your items safer (LCL). However, if you have a smaller home and won’t use the full size of a container, you can opt for the LCL mode and share the container to split costs.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

For those shipping to another country that is connected by land, they can choose to ship via truck or train. Air transportation is also an option. In other cases, you will choose between air freight or sea freight. Shipping by cargo plane is more expensive than using a cargo ship, but it’s significantly more expensive. Around 5 times higher to be more precise. If you want to save on costs, consider sending your items by sea.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are a few additional shipping costs that you need to consider:

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

You will have to deal with taxes wherever you ship your stuff. In some places, inspections are performed with electronic scanners so you won’t have to worry about inspection fees.

Something that you must be mindful of is insurance. Shipping internationally is a complex process that doesn’t always go down smoothly. While advances in the industry have made it safer than ever, getting insurance coverage is still a no-brainer. Check if your shipping company offers insurance and what kind of coverage it has.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Algeria?

Algeria is very strict with its documentation processes when it comes to the importation of goods into the country. Based on this, it is necessary for you to have the following documents with you when moving your cargo to Algeria:

• A passport (showing last entry stamp)
• Invoice of your goods
• Residence Visa
• Certificate of Change of Residence
• Importation license required for foreigners
• Valued inventory

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading is a document issued by a carrier that contains the contract terms of the cargo. It is a very important document that can be used as a cargo receipt, evidence of the contract of carriage, and documents of title.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

In a scenario where you lost your bill of lading, you are advised to contact your shipping company to see if there’s a way of finding the bill of lading. However, if it cannot be found, you will have to provide a letter from the shipper (which states in detail that the bill of lading is lost), a court order, a letter of indemnity (with bank guarantee), and a commercial invoice/packing lists (which contains the quantity and value of the goods being shipped, name and address of the manufacturer/shipper, name and address of the buyer/receiver, country of origin and destination, and description of goods in the container).

What Types of Goods Am I Not Allowed to Ship to Algeria?

There are some items that are not allowed into Algeria, and these are based mostly on security or religious reasons.

You are not allowed to import things such as live plants, pornographic materials, weapons/ammunition, radio equipment (such as walkie-talkie), drugs, political materials, jewelry, currency, alcohol, and tobacco products.

What Kind of Taxes, Duties, and/or Fees Do I Have to Pay When Shipping to Algeria?

Algeria uses the CIF (cost, insurance, and freight) of your cargo to calculate its customs duties and taxes. However, you are required to pay a customs duty that ranges from 3%-40% and a VAT of 7%-21% (depending on the item you are shipping into the country).

What’s the Difference Between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Shipping taxes are mandatory tariffs levied by the government on any purchased item in the country, while shipping duties are tariffs placed on imported goods by the government in order to reduce too much reliance on imported products.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

In reality, most containers are not waterproof. Instead, they are built in a way that can prevent normal water or rain from entering the container. However, this water prevention is not applicable to the case of flooding or submerging of the container into the ocean.

Containers are also built with small pressure vents which enable airflow in the container. However, it is not adequate enough to provide proper ventilation in the container.

What’s the Difference Between a Freight Forwarder, a Broker, and an NVOCC?

In order to highlight the differences between these three, it is essential that we get to know their role(s) when it comes to shipping.

A freight forwarder is an expert in logistics that organizes shipment for individuals/corporations to get goods from the manufacturer to the final distribution point. The broker aids communication between the owner of a ship and the carrier. The NVOCC (Non-Vessel Owning Common Carrier) takes care of the transportation of the container to gateway ports.

Based on the explanation above, you will find out that the freight forwarder is in charge of organizing the shipment, while the broker handles negotiation between shipper and carrier, and the NVOCC takes care of the movement of the goods to its destination.

What Is the Maximum Weight That Can Be Loaded into a Container?

The gross weight for any loaded container should not exceed 62,700lbs (i.e., the weight of both the container and cargo). However, the required total weight of goods that should be loaded in a container varies based on the type of container you are using. For instance, a maximum cargo weight of 24,400kg is needed for a 20ft container while a cargo weight of 26,300kg is the maximum needed for a 40ft container.

How Long Does It Take for Cargo to Clear Customs in Algeria?

Clearing your goods with customs in Algeria can take more than a month because of the cumbersome nature of the documentation that needs to be processed.

Do I Need to Be Available When My Container Is Delivered?

It is not mandatory for you to be present when your container is being delivered. However, there is a need for you to be available during the beginning of your shipment (i.e. port of load) to enable us to ascertain your documents.
