When products are to be shipped internationally, there are a lot of factors involved which can pose a problem for informed individuals. Three Men And A Truck is available to relieve you of all the stress involved by helping you understand all these factors. Our shipping service is available in Belarus. With the services that we offer, you can rest assured that your shipping is in the perfect hands.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

When shipping internationally, various factors must be considered concerning the cost of shipping. Of all these factors, five are most important, they are volume or weight of items, type of transportation to be used, the distance the shipment travels, destination port, and time of the year when shipping occurs.

You might be surprised at how the time of the year affects shipping costs, but it does. There is a period from around August to October each year which is the busiest time of the year for shippers and retailers. Due to the higher demand for goods, shipping costs usually increase.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

When it comes to choosing the right container to have your goods shipped in, you only have two major options to choose from. These are the 20ft and 40ft containers. The 20ft container can contain stuff the equivalent of three bedrooms such as 200 full-sized mattresses. If you are shipping larger goods, you should consider going for the 40ft container.

Depending on the number of goods to be shipped, you can choose between Full Container Load (FCL) and Less Than Container Load (LCL). With FCL shipping, you have an entire container for all your shipments alone. With the LCL type of shipping, other shippers’ goods, along with yours, are shipped in the same container. These types of shipping vary in price, speed, security, flexibility, and availability.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

For the shipment of goods to Belarus, the options for freight transportation are either air or sea. These options are dependent on the price and time of delivery. While air freight is the better choice for the quick delivery of goods, it is more expensive than sea freight. So, if you want to save some cash, sea freight is the better option.

The amount of goods transported through sea freight is affected by the dimension of the goods, while transportation by air freight is affected by the weight.

Additional shipping costs

While some factors affecting shipping costs have already been identified, 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

When shipping to Belarus, the easier option to obtain your goods is by door-to-door service. This is because Belarus is landlocked so you might not have access to a port. Alternatively, you could decide to use an airport. With the second option, you will have to get your items personally from the place they are delivered to.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Belarus?

At the Minsk National Airport, the first port of entry to Belarus, all non-document shipments must file their clearance. The consignee needs to provide to the company or the broker the following documents:

● Translation of invoice and other accompanying documents
● A detailed description of the goods and usage
● For contract shipment, a copy of the Contract, Passport of Transaction issued by Belarus bank, CO certificate, or EU quarantine certificate if the goods require it.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

Have you ever received a list of purchased items given by the cashier from the grocery store? If you had, then you can just refer to that list as a close example of what a Bill of Lading is.

The Bill of Lading is a document executed by a carrier, such as a railroad or shipping line, acknowledging receipt of goods and embodying an agreement to transport the goods to a stated destination.

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to Belarus?

Before traveling or moving to Belarus, you must know what types of goods you cannot bring or ship to the country, especially if you don’t want to pay additional expenses, and if you want the customs checking process to move faster. Below is a list of restricted commodities to enter Belarus:

AirSoft Guns, Alcoholic Beverages, Animal Products, Antiques, Artwork, Bakery Products, Bulbs, Cigarettes, Cigars, Dairy, Dried Fruit, Drugs, Dry Plant Items, Electronic Cigarette/Vaping Product, Fish & Fish Products, Flowers, Food, Food Additives, Food Supplements, Jewelry, Meat, Military Equipment, Miscellaneous, Pastry Products, Personal Effects, Plants, Precious Metals, Seeds, Vitamins, Watches, and Wine.

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

Before shipping a container to Belarus, you should familiarize yourself with the distinctions between taxes, tariffs, and duties.

Tariffs are expenses applied to specific products from specific countries at specific times, whereas customs duties are based on product characteristics. Finally, tax rates are set and calculated based on the total value of the imported product. Each country has its own set of fee obligations, each with its own set of rules, deadlines, and forms.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

In case the original Bill of Lading was lost, destroyed, or stolen, a new bill is unobtainable unless the original has been found. The shipper, importer, or exporter will need to take several steps in the event of losing the lading. Below is the step-by-step process and a few details to guide you in going after the shipping company:

● Letter from Shipper. The shipper must create a statement or a letter containing specific details about the loss of the original Bill of Lading.
● Count Order. An order by the court may need to be obtained by the shipper which directs it to make delivery to the title of the merchandise’s holder.
● Letter of Indemnity. A letter of indemnity allows the transporter’s release from liability.
● Bank Guarantee. If a bank promised to accept joint liability for damaged goods by signing documents.
● Commercial Invoice and Packing List. The commercial invoice contains the quantity and value of the goods to be shipped, the name and address of the shipper, manufacturer, buyer, and receiver, the country of origin and destination, and the description of goods being shipped for the customs agent.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

Imagine losing your items during the container transportation and having to pay for additional and expensive costs just to either retrieve the items or go after the shipping company for its negligence. And since you have no insurance for your shipped items, you may not be able to chase the shipping company for it.

A cargo insurance policy protects the cargo interest in the event of a failure. The majority of cargo insurance policies are written on an “all-risk” basis. This means that the insured is protected against loss or damage except for risks expressly excluded in the policy, such as loss or damage caused by the insured’s willful destruction of the goods or the inherent vice of the goods.

My Container Is Being Delivered to My Home. How Much Space Is Required?

A 20-foot storage container usually requires about 75 feet of straight clearance. A 40-foot storage container will need about 100 feet of straightforward clearance. For most containers, you need a minimum of 12 feet of width clearance and 20 feet of overhead clearance.

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

Because your signature is required to sign specific documents, you must be physically present when the container is delivered. When the container arrives, you should supervise the moving crew so that you can ensure that the goods are still intact.
