International shipping is a complex task with a lot of moving pieces, such as legislation, security, capacity, and legal issues. With this fact in mind, Three Men And A Truck can help you grasp everything there is to know about international shipping so you can make an informed decision.

We ship containers to different countries around the world, including Cyprus. To determine the cost of this process, you must obtain a quote. However, there are several facts you need to be aware of in order to fully comprehend the pricing.

Factors That Affect The Costs Of Shipping

When evaluating the cost of shipping a container, there are several factors to consider, the most important of which are listed below.

  1. The distance to be covered during traveling.
  2. The volume or weight of your goods.
  3. The method of transportation.
  4. Fees that are charged at the destination port.
  5. The time of the year

In terms of the last factor, it’s worth remembering that when it comes to overseas shipping, there are peak seasons. Back-to-school and holiday shopping drive consumer demand every year, so August to October is generally a busy shipping season.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

The most regularly used shipping containers (there are at least 16 other types of containers) are the 20ft and 40ft shipping containers, and you’ll most likely be using one of them. The 20-foot shipping container can accommodate about 100 household washing machines, and the 40-foot shipping container, as you might assume, has double the capacity. However, the fact that a 40-foot container has double the capacity of a 20-foot container does not mean it costs twice as much.

The Difference Between FCL And LCL

If you’re shipping a small number of goods, you might not have to pay for the entire container. We’ve devised a system that allows clients with little cargo volumes to share a container. The term “less than a container load” (LCL) refers to this type of partial shipment.

If you want to ship the contents of a one-bedroom apartment, LCL is a good alternative. A volume more than that, on the other hand, will necessitate the use of an entire container. This is known as “full container load” (FCL).

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

There is a range of flexible freight options available in today’s supply chain to fulfill the particular business needs of enterprises all over the world. You’ll probably need one or a combination of freight solutions to deliver your shipments to the appropriate destination, depending on your items, suppliers, and trade habits.

Air freight, ocean freight, truck freight, and rail freight are the different modes of freight transportation. Due to the lack of functioning railway infrastructure in Cyprus, many other modes of transportation are required to assure the safe delivery of any cargo, whether human or freight. Since the final train was decommissioned in 1952, the only forms of transportation left are by road, sea, and air.

When shipping to Cyprus, air freight or sea freight is the best option. Air freight is five times more expensive than sea freight, despite the fact that it is usually faster. So it’s up to you to choose which one is best for you.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are some additional costs associated with shipping to another nation, and Cyprus is no exception. You should be aware of the following additional shipping costs:

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Shipping containers are air and watertight, with tiny pressure-activated vents on the sidewalls near the roof. The purpose of these vents is to help with heat or moisture build-up. They are, meanwhile, not always effective in preventing dampness on the bottom of the roof or on the walls.

Shipping containers are designed to float if they fall overboard while being transported by sea. If you want to store items in a shipping container in a rainy location, buy a brand-new airtight container or a high-quality used container with intact door seals that are still airtight so your cargo won’t get wet.

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

The following products are subject to extra restrictions for shipping to Cyprus. If you intend to transport one of the items listed below to this country, be sure to follow the shipping rules to avoid customs delays and holds.

● Acids

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

Getting maritime cargo insurance is by far the most effective way to safeguard the cost of your items from physical damage, theft, or general degradation. Not all shipping items are generally covered by cargo insurance, and this varies considerably by region. Shippers and consignees, on the other hand, can purchase insurance on the open market from specialist suppliers, large brokers, local agencies, websites, and freight forwarders.

Obtaining freight insurance is not required. However, it is strongly recommended.

Why Do FCL and LCL Shipments Have Different Transit Times?

The container in an FCL shipment is transporting stuff for one shipper and one consignee, and it will not be opened once it is loaded at the port of origin. It may be re-handled at a different port if there is no direct service from point to point.

On the other hand, in LCL (or Groupage) cargo, a shipping company will combine products from numerous shippers and consignees into a single container, which will be transported to various destinations.

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

The maximum weight for a typical loaded 40-ft container, according to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), should be 67,200 lb. (It should be noted that international shippers, both trucks and container ships, do not always correctly verify the weight of each loaded container, resulting in overweight containers being placed onto trucks for delivery.)

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

You may monitor the movement of your container using GPS tracking equipment. You must purchase and manually connect this technique to your cargo if you pick this option.

You can also call the shipping firm to track or obtain information about the whereabouts of your shipment. Several shipping firms provide clients with access to their cargo tracking system.

You only need the tracking number if you use the tracking system of a shipping firm.

A tracking number, often known as a tracking code, is a unique identifier issued to each item that allows you to trace its progress between nations or even inside one country.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Cyprus?

Here are the common documents needed for shipping overseas:

● Commercial and Proforma Invoices
● Bills of Lading
● Packing List
● Shipper’s Letter of Instructions (SLI)
● Automated Export System (AES) Filing
● Certificate of Origin (CO)
● Incoterms
● Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
● Operational Instructions
● Shipping Under a Letter of Credit

Failing to submit or present the required documents may cause substantial delays, and in the worst-case scenario, your container may not leave its port of origin.

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

You need a space that’s equal to the space capacity of the container. For example, if you are unloading a 20ft container, you need an area where ten pallets can fit.
