If you want to ship a container anywhere in the world, you’ll need to work with an experienced company. The logistics involved in an international shipping project are far more complex than people assume. Three Men And A Truck can take care of this process for you. We’ll make sure your cargo has the right documentation, educate you on what kind of customs duties to expect, and generally ensure that everything is up to par and handled properly.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

Distance is a critical element when shipping internationally. More distances mean more money. But there are other less considered factors to account for.

Your cargo transportation charges will be based on two things: mode of transportation and volume/weight. The latter element is determined based on the former. Sea freight cares more about the volume of your shipment, while weight is more important when shipping by air.

The destination port is important because of the taxes and service fees you’ll have to cover. For Croatia, your cargo will most likely go through the port of Rijeka, as it is their largest cargo port.

Finally, the time of the year will have a variation on the cost. Some months have more service demand than others, which tends to increase the costs. Traditionally, these peak seasons are between August and October, but they can vary.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

There are many options to choose from when it comes to the size of your container. However, for most people, the 20ft or 40ft options are the only options they’ll need.

20ft containers can fit the contents of a three-bedroom home. Think about the size of an average garage or something around 50-60 refrigerators. They can also fit a car but there won’t be much space left for anything else. If you are sending a lot of volume in terms of goods, consider the 40ft option instead.

In both cases, you can choose from Full Container Load (FCL) or Less Than Container Load (LCL). FCL is for those who want a container for themselves and can fill it up. If you don’t have enough items to fill a container, the extra space can cause things to move around and get damaged. For smaller loads, go with LCL. You’ll share a container with others, but it’ll be safer and more cost-effective.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

There are two types of freight transportation that you’ll use if you are shipping to Croatia from the United States.

When you have a large volume of items to move and land is not an option, sea freight is usually the way to go. This option is slower than the others, but it has fewer weight issues. This method allows you to ship large quantities of goods.

Air freight, on the other hand, works best when the cargo weight is low and speed is your main concern. It can become very expensive if you are shipping a lot of goods. Around 5 times more than sea freight transportation.

Additional Shipping Costs

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

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

Anywhere you ship to, you’ll have to deal with taxes. For Croatia, customs duties for industrial products are generally low (4.2% on average. You should consider adding insurance coverage on top of everything on every shipping project. It’s just a no-brainer. Insurance rates are based on the monetary value of your cargo.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A Bill of Lading is a document given by a shipping firm to a shipper (someone who provides and/or owns the items – also known as a consignor). It indicates that the items have been received in excellent condition and are ready to be sent. The shipper will next deliver the items to the agreed location.

A Bill of Lading is required for all shipments. For cargo to go from point A to point B, a Bill of Lading (BoL) must be provided. They are legally enforceable papers that frequently serve as proof of ownership of the items transported.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

A lost bill of lading can be a big problem because it might prevent your container from reaching its destination.

In cases of a lost BoL, you must notify your shipping company so that they could create a new one. Sometimes, the shipping line will require some of the following documents:

● A written statement of loss;
● Packing list;
● Cargo commercial invoice;
● Letter of Credit – copy (when payment was made by Letter of Credit);
● Shipper’s approval;
● Letter of indemnity, LOI drew up by the shipper;
● Letter of indemnity, LOI drew up by the recipient;
● Bank guarantee;
● Formal request: release without OBL or Issuance of New Set OBL

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Shipping containers aren’t impervious to water. They are, nevertheless, water-resistant. They can resist the effects of inclement weather.

Containers that are watertight are made of materials that do not let water flow through. By keeping water within, watertight containers may also be utilized to transport liquids.

A waterproof container is one that has been made with a water-resistant coating. There would be no damage if rain falls on the exterior of a waterproof container. Unfortunately, if rain gets inside a waterproof container, the contents will be negatively affected.

Most shipping containers have vents. They are made to provide for airflow and reduce the risk of moisture. Usually, vents are built on the long sides of shipping containers and towards the top of the container wall.

Also, container vents are only 1 inch (2.5cm) square and covered with mesh.

A 20-foot container contains two to ten vents, whereas a 40-foot container has four to twelve vents.

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

Import taxes are levies levied by a country’s customs authorities on products imported into the country. The amount paid on imported products is usually determined by the value of the items. Import taxes can also be referred to as customs charges, tariffs, or import tariffs in various cases.

On the other hand, import duty is a government-imposed levy on products imported from other countries. The price increase is designed to make the products less attractive to buyers, causing them to choose the local market.

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

Customs clearance usually takes less than 24 hours. However, if your documentation is incomplete, it may take several days for your cargo to cross customs.

The commercial invoice, packing slip, and shipping label are the most important documents for customs clearance.

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

You are not required to be present. You may have someone accept or sign the paperwork for the container delivery. But we do suggest that you be there when the container comes so that it may be put in a location that is practical for you. If you are unable to be around, the shipping team will place your container in the most convenient location and will adhere to your recommendations.

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

Each container’s maximum cargo capacity may vary. It’s possible that a 20-foot container can hold greater weight than a 40-foot variant since they are roughly 3,000 pounds lighter.

A container’s gross weight is limited to 67,200 pounds. This implies that the container’s total weight, including the cargo, cannot exceed 67,200 pounds.
