Three Men And A Truck can help you make heads or tails of all the factors that can affect the cost of shipping a container internationally, and there are several. Whether you are shipping to a country that’s connected by land, or overseas, you’ll have multiple variables to consider. Our team of experts knows all the logistics involved and will help you plan so you don’t have to lose sleep over this. We work with shipping to many different countries, including Angola.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

A big variable in terms of shipping cost is the time of the year. International shipping has different seasons with different levels of activity. The most active time in the year belongs to the months between August and October. At these times the capacity becomes more limited due to the increase in activity, which will directly affect the price. If you want a lower cost, start by considering shipping outside of this time frame.

Distance, weight or volume, the method of transportation, and your destination country are the other 4 elements that greatly affect the price. Depending on where you are located, each will have a different impact on your final bill.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

Whether you select a 20ft or a 40ft container, you should make sure you are making full use of it. This means going for a “Full Container Load” to maximize the safety of your items, and the cost-effectiveness of the project. 20ft containers can hold up to 3 bedrooms worth of items, with 40ft holding double of that. If you have a smaller load, you can ask for a “Less Than Container Load” option. This is technically less cost-effective, but you can share the container space with others to mitigate that.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

The type of transportation that you will use 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 or air cargo transportation. Sea 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 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

Shipping to Angola by sea means your cargo will most likely go through the Port of Luanda, as the country’s main port. You’ll have to deal with the taxes and service fees associated with your cargo shipping there. If you are not picking up your cargo at the port, you’ll have to deal with additional inland delivery charges associated with door-to-door service. This will cost you extra, but it is significantly more convenient.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading is the evidence of the carriage contract entered into between the “Carrier” and the “Shipper or Cargo Owner” in order to transport the cargo in accordance with the sales contract between the buyer and the seller. In exchange for receiving the cargo, the carrier or their agency issues a bill of lading to the shipper or their agent. The B/L is documentation that the carrier got the items in apparent good order and condition from the shipper or their agent, as handed over by the sender. It means that the goods can be transferred to the holder of the B/L, who then has the option of claiming the commodities or transferring them to someone else.

What Happens if I Lose the Bill of Lading?

When an original bill of lading is lost, one of the things that must be done to assist cargo discharge is for someone to obtain a Bank Guarantee and/or Letter of Indemnity. It’s a good idea to prepare and collect the following documents if you lose your Bill of Lading:

• A written declaration of loss
• Cargo commercial invoice
• Packing list
• Copy of Letter of Credit (if payment was made via Letter of Credit)
• Approval of the shipper
• Letter of indemnification, LOI prepared by the shipper
• Letter of indemnity, LOI prepared by the recipient
• Guarantee from a bank
• Formal request: release without OBL or new set OBL issuance

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Angola?

Here are the five most important documents you’ll need to ship to Angola:

• Bill of Lading.
• Commercial Invoice.
• Freight Invoice.
• DU / Documento Unico / Import License for Angola.
• Conselho Nacional de Carregadores (CNC) Certificate.

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

The following items are restricted from entering Angola:

• Plants and animals
• Morality-related products – such as pornography, roulette, and other gambling machines.•
• Vehicles – Importing passenger vehicles that are more than 6 years old from the date of manufacture is prohibited in Angola.
• Biotechnology Products – Angola prohibits the import of viable transgenic grain or seed.
• Accumulators and used batteries.
• Used or retreaded tires.
• Counterfeit Goods.
• Weapons, ammunition, fireworks, and explosives.

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

Import taxes and fees on goods entering Angola are based on the product’s CIF (cost, insurance, and freight) value and include the following:

• Import duties can range from 2% to 50%.
• The fee for general customs is 2%
• Brokerage fees range from 0.5 to 2% on average.
• Port Fees: USD 90 for 20’ container and USD 153 for 40’ container
• Terminal Handling Port Fees: up to USD 278 for a 20’ container and USD 473 for a 40’ container
• Stamp Duty: 1%

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Not every shipping container is waterproof, but they are water-resistant in the sense that they will keep out regular weather and rain/snow/precipitation for the most part. However, if the containers are immersed, they will leak, and if they are flooded, they will leak as well. In most circumstances, shipping containers are completely watertight. The majority of new shipping containers have robust rubber seals around their doors to prevent water or moisture from entering the container. Because most containers only have one entry, strengthening the region around their doors can effectively block out water.

While small pressure vents in shipping containers and storage containers allow the unit to breathe, they are insufficient to provide good ventilation inside the container. As a result, making sure you have enough ventilation is critical.

How Important Is it to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

It’s very important. Some shippers may believe that because the distances for some shipments are short, they do not need to insure the products. Alternatively, they may believe that they are not liable for insurance because they misinterpreted the terms of sale.

Whatever the circumstances, anything can happen to your cargo while it is in transit, including damage or theft, whether you like it or not, and whether you can control it or not. You must guarantee that your cargo is adequately insured by cargo insurance in your personal and your company’s interests.

How Long Does it Take for Cargo to Clear Customs in Angola?

In Angola, a customs clearance takes roughly 10 to 15 business days from the time all criteria are received to final delivery.

How Much Space is Required for a Container Delivered to My Home?

For a 40′ container, the truck must have around 110′ of straightaway clearance to deliver it. For a 20′ container to be delivered, you’ll need roughly 50′ of immediate clearance. Because containers are 8′ wide, the trailer will need a minimum of 10′ width clearance to drop off your container.
