Eswatini Container Shipping Cost

Figuring out the cost of shipping a container to Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) before embarking on the shipping procedures can be a little complicated. This is because there are factors that influence the shipping cost.

Therefore, Three Men And A Truck is providing this guide to help you understand the factors that affect the total cost of shipping a container to Eswatini.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Eswatini

Some factors that affect the cost of shipping to Eswatini include:

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

The volume or weight of your cargo will determine the kind of freight you will be using for your shipment. This is because sea freight is mainly keen on the size of your cargo, while air freight is mainly concerned with how much your goods are weighing.

Type of Transport

The mode of transportation you will adopt to move your goods is going to influence costs as well. For example, using air freight is normally fast but the charges are higher than that of sea freight.

The Destination Port

Customs tariffs have a huge influence on shipping costs. However, Eswatini has a standard VAT rate of 15% and a common external tariff with member countries of SACU (South African Customs Union).

The Time of the Year

The period of May to September in Eswatini is usually filled with tourists that are interested in seeing the wildlife in the country. Therefore, the most appropriate period for you to ship your container to Eswatini is between October to April.

What Size of Shipping Container Should I Use?

20ft and 40ft containers are the recommended containers for shipping.

How Big is A 20ft Container?

A 20ft container has the capacity of carrying items with a total weight of 28tons, and it can be likened to the size of a single garage.

How Big is A 40ft Container?

The size of a 40ft container is equivalent to double that of a 20ft container, and it is available to you with just a little additional cost. Thereby making it a good value for money for clients with large cargo.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

FCL is a phase known as “Full Container Load” that involves one client using an entire container for his shipment, while LCL (known as Less Than Container Load) is made for customers with small cargo (not more than the contents of a one-bedroom apartment) to be able to use one container for their shipments.

Understanding the Different Types Of Freight Transportation

There is a need to fully understand the mode of transportation available in the country, to decide which one to utilize.

Air Freight

There are only two airports with paved runways in Eswatini, but the most utilized one is the King Mswati III International Airport that has a runway of 3,600m.

Truck Freight

The use of trucks is the most direct way to transport your goods via land in Eswatini. The country has 1500km of highways and 2270km of district roads in its road network.

Train Freight

Being a landlocked country, the country built a railway network that connects them with seaports in Mozambique and South Africa; thereby making it possible for international trade to take place easily.

Additional Shipping Costs

Additional costs like customs duties, excise duties, ad valorem duties, anti-dumping duties, and countervailing duties, should be considered by you when shipping to Eswatini.
