Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

Amongst the many things that are calculated to determine the cost of shipping a container, 5 items are considered the most significant. These are the distance to travel, weight or volume of your freight, transportation method, fees of the destination port, and the time of the year.

The last one might sound weird at first, but there’s a peak season when it comes to international shipments. This can fall between August and October, with a smaller one between January and February. The higher demand and limited capacity around these times can make shipping more expensive.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

You’ll most likely be using a 20ft or a 40ft container for your items. 20ft containers can typically hold the content of three bedrooms, with 40ft containers holding double that amount. Even if 40ft containers are double in size, a 20ft container can hold around 100 washing machines, or about 50-60 fridges (though not at the same time).

Understanding The Different Types Of Shipping Freight Transportation

The type of transportation that you will use for shipping to Andorra will depend on the speed you need, and whether you will need to ship overseas or not. You also need to verify if the shipping is done port-to-port, or you have full door-to-door service.

In most cases, you’ll be using sea freight or air cargo transportation. Ocean freight is slower but almost 5 times cheaper. If speed is your main concern, go with a cargo plane. However, keep in mind that weight is a bigger concern than volume for air shipping.

Additional Container Shipping Cost

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

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

While international shipping is safer than it has ever been, you still don’t want to be in a position where you are liable for any damages. You should ask about insurance coverage. Insurance is rated based on the monetary value of your items as opposed to weight or volume.

Full Container Load (FCL) vs. Less Container Load (LCL)

Other terms you may come by are FCL & LCL

LCL

LCL refers to less container load that means to shipments or moves, which compel less than full containers; though many companies impose volume of minimum shipments that a few times are fewer and one m³, this is the most price compelling voice for minor moves. However, often it works out inexpensive to pay full container.

FCL

On the other hand, FCL refers to Full Container load that means shipments or moves where you will pay the price for an entire container.

It means that you can ship all your personal belongings in one container without interference from others’ personal items. Generally, shipping companies mostly like when the customers pay for full cargo containers because it makes logistics at all ends easier.

International Shipping Modes of services: Land, Air, and sea freight

You can freight internationally in three ways utilizing land, air, and ocean cargo. All the moves involve at least a few land transportations while others can also apply three methods. Here is a list of essential things that should be in your acknowledgment.

There are two land transportations for shipping containers:

Truck

Practically, all the moves can involve trucks. International and Domestic moves within the continent likely get done through trucks and by only one country.

Whereas the ships overseas result into trucking companies coordination. The company you pick is responsible for ensuring that the price breaks down and the ones responsible for what happens between moving procedure.

Speed:

The speed of trucks usually depends upon the condition of the road.

Costs:

They are unavoidable but are moderate.

Examples:

Local moves done within the country or town, Mexico to USA or Canada, Ireland to U.K or Mainland Europe, Canada to the USA, and shifts within European countries.

Trains

Trains are more common and cost-effective to move shipping containers than through trucks for moves done within the continent for long-distance.

Speed:

This factor depends upon destination and origin and is slower than a truck.

Cost:

With some exceptions, this shipping cost less than a truck.

Examples:

Moves within North America’s West and East boasts local moves between Australia and distant activities within Western and Eastern Europe.

Sea Freight/Ocean freight

Shipping to Andorra by a container ship or Sea freight or ocean freight shipping rates a cheap shipping cost to move household goods overseas yet also very slow.

Though, if you move goods within continents, you have no choice but to send them through a container ship.

Speed:

It is slow and depends upon the path that takes weeks or days.

Cost:

Meager and involving the given distance.

Example moves:

Australia to the USA, USA to the United Kingdom, Canada to South Africa, and Australia to New Zealand.

Air Freight

Airfreight or Shipping by air is rarely used, primarily for complete household container moves because of the high price. It costs 10X more than shipping through sea freight/ocean freight.

Because if you have a few things required as soon as moving in your new house, you can ship them by a plane; however, it is more effective for sending your household items by boat shipping or ocean freight/ ocean cargo through international ocean.

Speed:

It is speedy.

Cost:

Reasonable to ship some boxes but high-cost moves.

Example moves:

Within two cities that have an airport.

Delivery & Loading Options

Another essential factor that can affect your shipping containers costs is the planning to deliver and load. If you plan to move by FCL, you might have three choices depending on the NVOCC freight forwarder.

1. Port to Port shipping services

It is one of the basics, and upon this, the rates on top are based. Essentially, port-to-port shipping enables you to get your goods to the origin port, then the company delivers them to the destined port, and after that, you are liable to get them to the house.

2. Drop & Fill

The best international shipping companies drop the shipping container here at your home, and then you fill it by yourself. You can also use domestic packers and movers working separately from the company to help out.

Furthermore, this is a choice on your moves, another end where the company leaves a container to your house and then it is up to you to unload it.

3. Door to Door relocation services

The well-understood option for overseas people is a comprehensive door-to-door moving service. . Depending upon the option you pick, your mover arranges to deliver the container to your house, move to port, pack, ship, move to the new location, and lastly, unpacked.

Further Container shipping cost

Insurance:

If you plan to move all the things of your house overseas, then it is necessary to insure everything. Therefore confirm if the company you chose has adequate maritime insurance.

Thus, it gives you a stress-free mind that if anything gets broken or damaged while moving, you aren’t going to be out of pocket.

Packing Costs:

Most of the companies in charge of moving, require that it is up to them to pack your all goods. On the other hand, it may sound like adding on extra costs, yet it has good benefits.

Firstly, it helps prevent fraudulent in insurance claims that drive up the price for all people. Secondly, it is a requirement for duty and taxes.

Taxes/Customs/Duty Charges:

Before you ship everything overseas, it is preferable to have some knowledge regarding how is new country’s treatment towards the international moves.

A few impose duty or tax on the value of the goods, which enter the country. It is excellent to know how much it likely is before moving so you won’t face unpleasant surprises.

Storage:

In case if you don’t plan to say permanently abroad, it is worthwhile to see the storage cost in your motherland because it is cheaper than to ship your entire house abroad and back again, especially in the case when your homeland also charges duties and taxes on the shipped goods.

What Happens if I Lose the Bill Of Lading?

Losing a bill of lading can come with so many problems. This is because you cannot get another copy of it if the original gets lost. However, you don’t need to fret about this. The shipper has to write a letter, indicating that the bill of lading was lost. Also, they need to write a letter clearing the carrier of all indemnity. Finally, they need a bank guarantee that will protect the carrier of the goods financially, even without a bill of lading.
