Antigua & Deps Container Shipping Cost

The cost of shipping a container to Antigua & Deps is determined by several different factors. There’s the obvious stuff like the distance to travel, and the size of your cargo, but you also have to consider others. Three Men And A Truck can help you figure out this complex process, and if you decide to work with us you will be happy you did.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

Out of all the different variables that you need to consider, 5 are regarded as the most important ones. You already know the distance and size of your cargo are two big cost factors, but you also need to consider the method of transportation, the time of the year, and the destination. In the case of Antigua & Deps, you’ll want to check what kind of fees and taxes you are looking at.

The time of the year is a factor due to the peak shipping season. This is the period between August and October. Higher demand for services during these times can affect your costs.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

There are several types of containers, but most likely you’ll be using either a 20ft or 40ft unit. If you are shipping the equivalent of 3 bedrooms worth of stuff, 20ft is your go-to. You could also ship a car in a 20ft container, but it won’t leave much space for anything else. If you are shipping a vehicle and additional items, consider the 40ft option.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

Shipping a container to Antigua & Deps means you have two options: air freight or sea freight. For sea freight, you’ll be looking at a much longer travel time but a cheaper cost. About 5 times lower to be exact. If you don’t have to worry much about the duration of it all, go for the sea. However, if time is of the essence, you’ll want to go with a cargo plane. Another difference between the two is that with sea freight the volume is more important than the weight, with things being the other way around for air freight.

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 Antigua & Deps means the cargo can be picked up at the port or airport with relative ease, at least in terms of distance to them. You should still consider door-to-door service if you don’t have how to take your belongings to the final location.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Shippers and carriers are connected by freight brokers, who oversee the transportation of freight. For brokerage authority, brokers must register with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) of the Department of Transportation. However, Brokers do not assume custody of the freight. Freight brokers primarily manage shipments with origin and destination points in the United States. While a freight broker can handle international operations, they are usually limited to a single region.

Freight forwarders help their customers ship their goods and then take it a step further. Freight forwarders can also store goods for their customers in addition to transferring them. More importantly, freight forwarders have interstate and international operating authority with the FMCSA. That is, they are in charge of foreign shipments that travel from one country to another or across numerous countries. They often use their personal bills of lading to ship their cargo. They help with assembly and consolidation. They also help customers book cargo space directly with the ocean or air carrier, and they can negotiate transportation pricing.

Unlike freight forwarders, NVOCC can issue their own bill of lading, which can be based on any global standard. NVOCCs serve as both a carrier and a shipper to their customers (they are the middleman and make 100 percent of the work for shippers). The majority of NVOCCs also have their own container fleet.

Why Do FCL and LCL Have Different Transit Time?

FCL routes are straightforward. The container is not opened or reworked once your items have been loaded into it. As specified in your contract, it is directly transshipped to the destination hub port. As a result, FCL normally takes 30–42 days to reach its destination port.

LCL is made up of a variety of shipments from distinct consignees. These commodities will be delivered to various locations. However, all of these items will be unloaded to a common hub port, e.g., Singapore, where the container will be reworked before being exported and distributed to their respective ports.

Many complex processes are involved in LCL shipping, including:

• Dealing with many consignees
• Getting commodities to different ports
• Reworking for cargoes

This, combined with other factors, results in a prolonged transit time. Rather than the same FCL transit time of 30–42 days, it could take up to 50 days for your items to arrive.

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

The answer is a resounding YES. A container tracking system can tell you where your marine cargo is in the world and provide port information. You can keep track of the container’s present location at any moment. You must provide the container number/Bill of lading/Booking number as well as the shipping line to track a container’s whereabouts. You can track a container and see where it is using any of these three references.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Antigua and Barbuda?

The Antiguan Customs Department requires the following documentation:

• Import license from the Ministry of Trade.
• Bill of Lading.
• Environmental Levy Form (if it’s an automobile)
• Commercial Invoice
• Battery Statement
• Tax Documents & Shipping labels

Do I Need to Be Present When My Container is Delivered?

Yes, you need to be present at the time of delivery to ensure that what is provided fulfills your expectations and to sign for the delivery to be completed.

What is the Difference Between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Duties are a type of indirect tax that is levied on the customer. Governments levy taxes on both domestically created and sold goods and services, as well as imported goods.

Taxes are fees levied by the government on items brought into a country (imported). Even though the items were purchased outside of the country, the consumption tax remains in effect and must be collected by customs when the goods enter the country.

The primary distinction between taxes and duties is that duties are a sort of tax imposed on products entering or leaving a country, whereas taxes are imposed on practically all purchases. Both contribute to a product’s total import and export costs.

What Type of Goods Am I Not Allowed to Ship to Antigua and Barbuda?

Goods that are prohibited during import to Antigua and Bermuda include:

• Alcohol
• Animals
• Chemical
• Drugs
• Currency
• Explosives and firearms
• Perishable foods
• Plants
• Tobacco

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

For general purpose containers, a 20ft container can carry a maximum gross weight of 30480 kg / 67200 lbs., while flat racks may transport up to 45,000 kg (99,207 lbs.). The payload capacity of a 20-foot reefer container is 27,400kg.

For general purpose containers, a 40ft container can carry a maximum gross weight of 30480kg / 67200lbs, whereas Flat racks can transport up to 60,000 kg (123,276 lbs.) and reefer containers may carry up to 35,000 kg (77,161 lbs.).
