Which Size Of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

You can choose from at least 16 distinct types of shipping containers. However, you must be aware of only two types of shipping containers: the 20ft and 40ft units. This is the case since the rest are primarily for business-related or industrial moves. In most cases, a 20-foot container can hold the contents of a three-bedroom flat, while a 40-foot container can hold twice as much. Even though 40-foot containers are twice as large as 20-foot containers, they rarely cost twice as much. To put things in perspective, a 20-foot container can accommodate around 200 full-sized mattresses or 10 standard pallets (though not at the same time).

A 40-foot container is a better value for money when you have a lot of items to transport. A 20-foot container, for example, will not be large enough for your other items if you cannot leave your car behind. Hence, if you wish to transport your car as well as other home items, a 20-foot shipping container would almost probably be required.

Understanding The Different Types Of Freight Transportation

When it comes to international shipping charges, the mode of transportation is another important consideration. The following are the various modes of freight transportation:

  • Sea freight
  • Air freight
  • Train freight
  • Truck freight

Rail, road, sea, and air are all modes of transportation in Fiji. The rail network, for example, is mostly used to transport sugar cane. Thus, expect to employ a variety of modes of transportation to convey your goods due to the country’s 333 tropical islands. You’ll be moving your goods by sea or air the majority of the time. Traveling by sea is slower but nearly five times cheaper. If you need your goods to reach their destination quickly, using a cargo plane is the way to go. Keep in mind, however, that for air travel, weight takes precedence over volume.

Additional Shipping Costs

Once you’ve decided on your means of transportation, you’ll need to throw in some additional shipping expenses. Some of them are as follows:

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

Frequently Asked Questions

What Documents Do I Need for Shipping to Fiji?

● Supplier’s commercial invoice.
● Bill of Lading
● Packing List
● Import Permit or License
● Phyto Certificate

The documents stated above are original mandatory shipping documents. The following documents are only needed where applicable:

● Certificate of Inspection
● Certificate of Origin

● Letter of Purchase or Credit
● Legal Undertaking

What Types of Goods Am I Not Allowed to Ship to Fiji?

The goods that are prohibited in Fiji are as follows: counterfeit notes and coins, illicit and narcotic drugs, harmful weapons, pornographic materials, and several others.

Some goods are however restricted and require a license and permit from the government and authorities of Fiji before they can be allowed entry into the country by customs.

What Are the Differences Between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Taxes are imposed on the masses by the government. Whether you are importing and exporting goods or not, you’re expected to pay taxes on whatever you purchase. However, shipping duties are like indirect taxes that are imposed on the consumers of goods that are imported.

In other words, taxes that are paid on goods transported across international borders are referred to as shipping duties.

What’s the Difference Between a Freight Forwarder, a Freight Broker, and an NVOCC?

These three terms are most times mistaken for one another. However, they are quite different. NVOCC stands for Non-Vessel Owning Common Carrier. The services of NVOCC are always employed not as agents but as service providers. They provide all the services of a carrier under their bill of lading.

Freight Forwarders on the other hand are appointed to serve as agents. They specialize in the organization of shipments for people and enterprises. However, they do not take part in the freight.

Freight Brokers are intermediaries between freight forwarders and carriers.

How Important Is it to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

To avoid the issues that come with unforeseen circumstances, you need to get insurance for your cargo to provide optimum protection to the freight. Getting insurance for your cargo will avert inevitable losses and provide you with financial protection against all physical losses and damage. Therefore, the answer to the question of getting insurance for your cargo is YES.

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

As long as you have provided all the documents needed for the clearance, clearance should be facilitated within 72 hours. However, if you are unable to provide the documents required on time, clearance may take up to two weeks. You also need to have paid up the necessary shipping tax and duties before your clearance can be finalized.

Is it Possible to Track My Container While It is Still in Transit?

Yes, it is very possible. We at Three Men And A Truck are looking out for nothing but your convenience. Our services and system enable you to monitor the movement of your shipment. We have a tracking system that enables you to follow up on the move of your cargo as well as keep you updated from time to time. 

Are All Shipping Containers Waterproof and Do They Have Proper Ventilation?

Not all shipping containers are waterproof. Oftentimes, you’ll discover that shipping containers are watertight instead. This helps to prevent precipitation, snow, or rain. When these containers are submerged in water or flooded, they will no doubt leak. At Three Men And A Truck, we offer the best service by finding and providing you with the best shipping containers that are well properly ventilated. We ensure that we convey your goods in containers that are watertight and keep your goods in safe conditions.

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

Containers come in different sizes and as such can only accommodate the weight they can. For a 20ft container, you should be able to load goods having a gross maximum weight of 67,200 lbs. equivalent to 30,400kg. This may come as a surprise but the gross maximum weight of the 40ft container is the same as the 20ft container. They take up to 67,200 lbs., an equivalent of 30,400kg.

Do I Need to Be Present During the Delivery of My Container?

Your presence at the delivery site will enable us to be able to get to your destination more easily. You would also be able to monitor us and the way we handle your goods when you’re there with us. You should be at the delivery site to avoid issues arising in the long run. You would also need to sign some delivery documents which can only be possible when you are at the delivery site. To summarize, the answer to the above question is YES. You should make yourself available at the delivery of your goods.
