The cost for moving your residential or commercial belongings to Guinea depends on a number of factors like the route, volume, and carrier charges.

However, there are also other factors that affect the container shipping rates, which are beyond the shippers’ control. To give you more idea about it, here’s the cost of shipping a container.

How much does it cost to ship a container to Guinea?

Many of us know that the distance between the origin and destination of your cargo affects the shipping cost. But aside from that, there are other factors to consider, especially if you’re moving your container overseas.

For instance, since your end destination is Guinea, it’s more likely that you will ship your container through sea freight. If this is the case, factors like the size and weight of your cargo are necessary considerations in calculating the shipping rate.

Also, make sure to include the taxes or customs fees that you might need to pay at the destination port. The shipping firm can’t control the cost of these fees because they vary by country.

Furthermore, check if you’re moving your shipment during the peak season. The peak season for shipping happens throughout the summer and weeks after the Chinese New Year.

In Guinea, the months between May and October are the busiest periods at the port. There’s a high probability that you will pay higher shipment rates than usual.

Even if not as vital as the first four factors listed above, the following can also have an impact on delivery costs:

  • Insurance
  • Packing
  • Taxes and Custom fees
  • Inspections
  • General Rate Increase
  • Storage

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me? 

The size of the shipping container depends on your budget and cargo.

You have two types of shipping methods to choose from, and these are FCL and LCL.

In FCL or Full Load Cargo, you have to pay for the entire container to move your belongings. On the other hand, you will share the cargo space and cost of using the container if you choose LCL or Less Than Container Load.

Regarding the cargo space, it depends on the type of container you’re using.

20ft and 40ft are the ideal sizes of containers for residential and commercial shipments. You can fit the contents of an average size house on a 20ft container, and of course, the 40ft container would double that capacity. To give you a better picture, if a 20ft container can fit 200 full-sized mattresses, the 40ft would hold 400.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You have three options to move your shipment. You could do it on land, air, or sea.

If you pick land transportation, you will load your container on trailer trucks or freight trains.

But let’s assume that you’re shipping your cargo from the United States, then your only option is either sea or air freight.

Sea freight is the ideal option for transporting your cargo to Guinea. You can ship items without worrying about the shipping cost because it’s not as expensive as air freight.

Air freight is also an option if you want to transfer your cargo to Guinea immediately. This type of transport is fast but really expensive. It’s best to choose this option if you’re only moving boxes worth of stuff.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Guinea?

It’s a good idea to read into Guinea’s import rules to find out what documentation is required. Lacking the required documents might cause severe delays and potentially prohibit your shipment from reaching its origin port.

Prepare the necessary documentation to minimize delays and ensure that your cargo arrives at its destination on time. These are some of the most frequent paperwork required when transporting a container internationally:

● 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

What’s the Difference between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Both duties and taxes are sources of revenue for governments. This money is spent on government-funded social and developmental programs, such as education, health, and security.

Customs duties are a type of tax on cross-border items that are collected by customs to help the government earn revenue and protect local companies.

Import taxes are a form of tax applied by a country’s customs authority on imports and specified exports. The amount of import taxes levied is usually determined by the value of the products. Import duty is also known as, import tax, import tariff, or tariff in some cases.

Do I Need to Be Present When My Container Is Delivered?

Once the shipment has passed customs, the shipping firm will transport it to the customer or an agreed-upon delivery location. The receiver should discuss where they wish to receive the goods with the transport business or forwarder in advance for ease of delivery.

However, it’s still preferable to be there so you can sign the necessary paperwork right away and tell the moving staff where to put the container. If you are unable to supervise the procedure, you can appoint someone to do so on your account.

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

A freight forwarder is a company or individual that, on behalf of the cargo owner, manages the movement of goods from one location to another.

The aim of freight forwarding is to ensure that the cargo is retrieved from the seller and delivered to the buyer at the stated place, at the negotiated price, and in the same condition as when it was picked up from the origin, using the best tools and route possible.

Customs brokers help their customers in removing barriers to global trade by allowing items to be imported and exported across international borders. Whether you’re an individual, a small business, or a huge multinational, customs brokers use their knowledge to assist items to get through customs in foreign nations. By simplifying the flow of cargo across borders, customs brokers reduce the stress associated with international shipments for their clients.

Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCC) are companies that do not own or operate ocean-going vessels. Instead, they make arrangements for cargo transportation with ship owners, charterers, or shipping firms under their own Bill of Lading.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Cargo containers are frequently not watertight, although they are waterproof. It implies they can survive a variety of weather conditions. If the containers are swamped or flooded, the contents will get wet.

Vents are common in shipping containers. They may be located on the container’s long sides and top. Vents have been installed to allow for airflow and to prevent moisture build-up.

These container vents are quite small, around 1-2 inches in diameter, and feature mesh to keep flies and vermin out of the container during its voyage.

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

The payload of a container is its load capacity value. The container’s capacity is displayed on the right container door. A 20ft container’s cargo capacity is generally 25.000 kg/ 55.126 lb.
