Three Men And A Truck can assist you in understanding all of the aspects that go into these types of jobs so that you can make an informed decision. Eritrea is one of the nations to which we transport containers. Requesting a quote is the first step in determining the cost of this process, but there are a few factors you need to learn to better comprehend the pricing.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

Five items are regarded as the most important of the many factors that go into determining the cost of transporting a container. The distance to be traveled, the weight or volume of your freight, the mode of transportation, the fees charged by the destination port, and the time of year are all factors to consider.

Also, when it comes to international shipping, there is typically a peak season. This usually occurs between August till October, with a lesser one between January and February. Due to the higher demand and restricted availability during these seasons, shipping can be more expensive.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

Your items will most likely be transported in a 20-foot or 40-foot container. A 20-foot container usually holds the contents of three bedrooms, whereas a 40-foot container can hold twice as much. However, 40ft containers rarely cost twice as much even if they are twice the size. To give you a sense of scale, a 20-foot container can accommodate about 100 washing machines or 50 refrigerators.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

The mode of transportation you choose will be determined by the amount of speed you require as well as whether or not you need to ship internationally. You should also confirm whether the shipping is from port to port or you have full door-to-door service.

The majority of the time, you’ll be shipping goods by sea or air. Sea freight is slower, but it is about five times less expensive than air freight. Therefore, choose a cargo plane if speed is your top priority. Keep in mind, however, that when shipping by air, weight is more important than volume.

Additional Shipping Costs

Even if international shipping is safer than it has ever been, you don’t want to be held liable for any losses. Hence, it’s a good idea to inquire about insurance. The monetary value of your goods rather than their weight or volume is used to determine insurance rates.

Here are a few additional shipping costs to consider:

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

For a shipment to be accepted by the Eritrean Customs, the client must present the needed documents for permission to enter the country. These documents include battery statements, commercial invoices, tax documents, and shipping labels.

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

There are certain items that Three Men And A Truck won’t be allowed to dispatch to Eritrea and should not be sent by the customers to the company itself. This is to conform with the limitation for goods entering Eritrea to provide the safety, health, and well-being of the public. The list below involves the name of items that are prohibited when shipping to Eritrea:

• Intercompany Data on CD-ROM/Disk – Data shipments to Eritrea require an invoice stating the value of the CD-ROM or disk only.
• USB Sticks – Data shipments require an invoice with the character of the USB stick (storing intercompany data) and the value of the USB Stick.
• Money -The Eritrean authorities strictly forbid the entry of foreign currency (e.g., US Dollar, Euro) within packages or letters. The police will seize the money. Any money is prohibited within letters or packages.
• Personal Effects – Personal Effects are classified as used items (owned for a minimum of 6 months) intended for the consignee’s personal use.
• Products Made in Iran – Products made in Iran are prohibited from entering Eritrea due to embargoes.
• Traveler Checks – Traveler checks are prohibited whether they be used or unused.
Other restricted items include alcohol, animals, chemicals, currency, drugs, explosives, firearms, fresh food, plants, seeds, and tobacco.

The list of restricted items changes frequently, so it’s always best to check the official customs page before sending your goods.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

The bill of Lading is a compilation of purchased products obtained onboard. It highlights the legality of a written contract between the client and the shipping company.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

If you lost the Bill of Lading, then you couldn’t procure a copy unless you found the original document. You will be prompted to show multiple necessities to acquire an imitated document, such as:

● A shipper’s letter
● An order of the court
● An indemnity’s letter
● Bank guarantee
● Packing list and a commercial invoice

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

Upon shipping items to Eritrea, you should understand the variance between duties, tariffs, and taxes.

Custom Duties Definition

You’ll obtain duty fees whenever you import goods into Eritrea. To establish how easily a good can be permitted to enter Eritrea, the administration arranged these expenses. Dutiesare always a factor even if they may shift.

Tariffs Definition

Tariffs are expenses enforced by the Eritrean government for groups of goods at a particular period. Like duties, the percentage of tariffs grows deliberately from the good’s import worth, and the end client accommodates the fees. Customer habits are contrived by how rapid the costs of imported products alter.

Import Taxes Definition

Depending on the country, it is called Value-Added Tax (VAT) or Goods and Services Tax (GST). In terms of execution, VAT and GST are identical, but each is applied to various goods depending on the place you are importing into.

What’s The Difference Between a FreightForwarder, a Broker, And An NVOCC?

When shipping your container to Eritrea, it is essential to ensure that the company you are partnering with is the most efficient fit. That’s why Three Men And A Truck is here to help you while you tap into the variations between two types of partner companies, such as Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs) and Freight Forwarders.

Clients of custom brokers, also known as Customs House Brokerages, include freight forwarders, independent companies, shipping lines, importers, exporters, trade authorities, and customs brokerage firms. They assist importers and exporters in complying with the import and export regulations of their respective countries.

A non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) is an ocean carrier that uses its own House Bill of Lading or comparable documents to transport goods rather than using ocean transportation boats. An NVOCC, on the other hand, rents space from another ocean carrier, known as a Vessel Operating Common Carrier (VOCC), and then sells it to their own customers.

While the majority of NVOCCs do not have their own warehouses, a few do have their own container fleet. In some cases, an NVOCC can also act as a freight forwarder.

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

Eritrea calculates import duties and taxes using the CIF method, which means they are calculated based on the value of the imported goods as well as shipping costs. There is a Tax and Duty threshold of 100USD, as well as a VAT/GST of 4%.
