Are you interested in shipping a container out of your country of residence? If yes, then you may encounter several challenges. Nevertheless, you needn’t worry about your endeavor because Three Men And A Truck have got you covered. We’re also involved in the shipment of goods to various countries in the world, including the Republic of Estonia.

This guide is intended to apprise the public of the rates at which a container can be shipped to Estonia and the considerable elements that influence the rates.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Shipping

The cost of transporting goods across national borders is determined by five (5) primary factors. Due to their undeniable significance, it makes perfect sense to reflect on them before shipping your freight. These factors include volume/weight of shipments, means of transportation, shipping distance, port of destination, and particular season.

The cost of international shipping is based on the volume/weight of shipments and the shipping distance. More volume/weight of shipments and increases in shipping distance usually mean the cost of shipping will be higher. However, not every means of transportation evokes the same expenses – air freight transportation is generally the most expensive means. Again, privately-owned destination ports tend to charge more than Government-owned destination ports.

Furthermore, the peak season in Estonia, which is the period of the year in which there are higher demands for the conveyance of shipments, often happens around August to October yearly.

Which Size Of Shipping Container Is Most Suitable For Me?

When transporting shipments to Estonia, you’ve got the option of choosing between a 20ft or a 40ft container, mainly depending on the weight/volume of shipments. A 20ft container can accommodate 48,000 bananas or 400 flat-screen TVs, while a 40ft container can hold twice that quantity. Despite the fact that a 40ft container has a double capacity, it isn’t necessarily twice the expense of a 20ft container.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

International shipping of goods to the Northern European country of Estonia involves two major mediums of transportation. These mediums are air and ocean freight transport systems. Your choice of transport system is dependent on what you need. If you want your cargo to be transported in a shorter time frame, then you should consider air freight transportation. On the contrary, if you don’t want to spend too much on transporting your cargo, then you should try the ocean freight method.

Furthermore, ocean freight transportation is inferred to be the most beneficial medium of transport because it can convey more loads than its air counterpart. Nonetheless, don’t get this information misinterpreted, air freight transport is likewise dependable.

Door-to-door and/or port-to-port services may be available, so you’re expected to choose the option that best works for you.

Additional Shipping Costs

Further costs you may incur when shipping goods to Estonia include:

  • Estonian custom duties
  • Container inspection fees
  • General Rate Increase
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance fees
  • EU VAT

Estonia also has a de minimis value, which is the declared value of your shipment below which duty and tax will not apply. If your container falls under the de minimis value, you’re not required to pay those fees.

Furthermore, ocean freight bound for Estonia is often shipped to the Port of Tallinn, which is one of the busiest ports of the Baltic Sea. Most air freight that is shipped to Estonia is sent to the Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport. These destination ports are efficient in the reception of shipments as Estonia is a highly developed country. There’s also an option of door-to-door service if you feel you’d find the port-to-port service troublesome.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

If a Bill of Lading gets destroyed, lost, or stolen, the client won’t obtain a new copy unless the original document is found. You will need to submit several requirements to get another copy, such as a letter from the shipper, count order, letter of indemnity, bank guarantee, and a commercial invoice and packing list.

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

Before shipping a container to Estonia, you should first study the difference between taxes, tariffs, and duties.

● Custom Duties Defined – You’ll incur duty fees every time you import a product into Estonia. The government set these fees to determine how freely a product can be imported into the country. Duties will always be available no matter how much they change.

● Tariffs Defined – Tariffs are fees carried by a government for categories of products at specific times. A tariff’s percentage increase is calculated from the product’s import value, and the end-customer receives the fees. Consumer habits are affected by how fast the prices of imported goods change.

● Import Taxes Defined – The standard percentage is the basis of import taxes by the additional cost added to any imported product entering the country. Depending on the country, it is called Value-Added Tax (VAT) or Goods and Services Tax (GST). In terms of implementation, VAT and GST are indistinguishable, but each is applied to various products based on the country importing into.

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

When shipping your container to Estonia, nothing is more important than ensuring the company you work with is the perfect fit. That’s why we have to tap into the differences between two types of partner companies, such as Freight Forwarders and Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs).

A distinction between an NVOCC and a freight forwarder is that a customer uses a freight forwarder as an agent of sorts. Meanwhile, they employ the services of an NVOCC as one of their service providers. In this case, as a carrier, similar to how they would a shipping line.

A freight broker is an individual or a company that connects a client with products to ship with an authorized motor carrier that can provide the transportation service.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

In some cases, containers might get lost, destroyed, or even stolen. Even the number of lost containers every year is staggering! To prevent paying for additional costs, ensure that you have your Bill of Lading with you to protect the cargo against inevitable losses. In the event of failure, a cargo insurance policy indemnifies the cargo interest. Most cargo insurance policies are underwritten on an “all-risk basis.”

However, while technically it is not required for you to purchase cargo insurance, it’s better to prepare ahead of time just in case something happens.

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

Before starting to pack everything you want to be shipped, you must consider a few factors. You should know in advance the details about delivery fees, permitting requirements, ground conditions, and clearance space. You wouldn’t want your container to arrive only to realize that you don’t have enough space to actually store it.

A 20-foot storage container usually requires about 75 feet of straight clearance. A 40-foot storage container will need about 100 feet of straight 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?

To clear shipment in Estonia, the client must be in the country. Some documents will need personal signature signage from the customer. The client must also be present to check the contents inside the container itself.
