Are you planning to ship cargo to Guinea-Bissau?

The process of shipping a container, especially to a different country, requires a lot of work. You have to pack your things, pick a shipping company, and unload the cargo at your destination.  If you want to simplify the entire process, hiring a moving firm would be a great idea.

How much does it cost to move a container to Guinea-Bissau?

Many people think that there is a standard freight shipment cost. Unfortunately, there isn’t one because a variety of factors determine the shipping prices. Obtaining an accurate freight shipment quotation is a surprisingly difficult task. To give you an idea about it, here are some of the major factors that could affect your shipping cost:

  • Size and weight of your items – Big and heavy shipments are more expensive to ship.
  • Distance – The shipping company will charge you based on the distance traveled by your shipment.
  • Type of transportation – Shipping your items through land and sea freight is cheaper than using air freight.

The time that you will ship the container would also affect the entire shipping cost. For example, you decided to ship your cargo during summer or after the holidays. There’s a big chance that you will pay extra for the shipping fee because these are the busiest periods for the shipping industry.

Although, keep in mind that the peak season depends on each country. In Guinea-Bissau, ports are likely busy from November to April. These are the months when tourists visit this country. You can expect delays in the shipment, but you can always pay extra to avoid them.

Apart from those, the following can also affect the delivery costs. Although, the increase can sometimes be unnoticeable:

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me? 

If you’re moving the contents of your apartment, a 20ft container is enough. It can hold everything in your living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom.

On the other hand, for the contents of a micro/small business or a four-bedroom house, a 40ft container is the ideal option.

If your items would not fill an entire container, you can move them through LCL or Less Than Container Load shipping. In this shipping type, you will share the space and price of using a container with other people.

But if you don’t want to share the container space, you can still ship it through FCL or Full Capacity Load. In this method, you have to pay for the entire container to move your cargo.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

To move your container to Guinea-Bissau, you can choose from international shipping, air transportation, and ground delivery. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages. So the right choice depends on your plan and budget for the shipment.

Let’s say you’re shipping from the United States, the best type of transportation for your cargo is sea freight. This is the most common method of transporting a large number of containers overseas.

If compared to flying, sea freight is a considerably more cost-effective choice, but it is also a slower option.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading is a legal document that describes the kind, amount, and destination of the goods being transported between the shipper and the carrier.

When the items are delivered to the designated location, the bill of lading also functions as a receipt of shipping. This document should be signed by an authorized agent from the carrier, shipper, and receiver and must accompany the sent goods, regardless of the mode of transit.

For all shipments, a Bill of Lading is necessary. A Bill of Lading (BoL) is required to transport freight from point A to point B. They’re legally binding documents that typically act as confirmation of ownership of the goods being transported.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Guinea-Bissau?

Although the majority of these documents are required, some are dependent on the object being carried or the origin and destination areas.

● 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

Make sure you have all of the necessary documents before exporting a container to Guinea-Bissau. To discover what documentation you’ll need to get started shipping your cargo, contact our customer service department.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

A misplaced bill of lading may be a major issue since it could prohibit your container from arriving at its destination.

If your BoL is lost, you must contact your shipping business so that a new one may be created. Some of the following documentation may be required by the shipping line:

● A written statement of loss;
● Packing list;
● Cargo commercial invoice;
● Letter of Credit – copy (when payment was made by Letter of Credit);
● Shipper’s approval;
● Letter of indemnity, LOI drew up by the shipper;
● Letter of indemnity, LOI drew up by the recipient;
● Bank guarantee;
● Formal request: release without OBL or Issuance of New Set OBL xx

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

A container can be tracked via the internet, a GPS tracking device, or satellite photos. However, container tracking solutions are currently available from a variety of companies. These technologies allow clients to keep track of their cargo’s actual position at all times.

Through the use of a freight monitoring system, clients are also kept up to date on the status of their cargo. You may track the position of your cargo container online, or you can be notified via phone or email.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Shipping containers are usually water-resistant. They have the ability to withstand the impacts of rain and other bad weather.

A waterproof container is one that has been treated to repel water. If rain falls on the exterior of a waterproof container, there will be no harm. If rain gets into a waterproof container, the contents will be harmed.

However, some containers are also watertight. Watertight containers are composed of materials that do not allow water to pass through them. Watertight containers can also be used to transport liquids since they can keep water.

Vents are found in the majority of shipping containers. They’re designed to allow for ventilation while also reducing the danger of dampness. Vents are often installed on the long sides of shipping containers, towards the top of the container wall. Container vents are also only 1 inch (2.5cm) square and mesh-covered. Two to ten vents are found in a 20-foot container, whereas four to twelve vents are found in a 40-foot container.

Why Do FCL and LCL Shipments Have Different Transit Times?

In an FCL cargo, a container carries products from one shipper and one receiver, and it is unchanged once loaded at the origin port and delivered to the end location. It may be re-handled at a different port if there is no direct service from point to point.

In LCL (or Groupage) cargo, on the other hand, a shipping company or groupage operator may combine products from numerous importers and receivers into a single container that will be transported to several destinations.

How Long Does It Take for Cargo to Clear Customs in Guinea-Bissau?

It generally takes less than 24 hours to clear customs. However, if your paperwork is incomplete, it might take a couple of days for your shipment to clear customs.

The most crucial papers for clearing customs are the commercial invoice, packing slip, and shipping label.

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

The amount of unloading space required is determined by the contents of your container.

A 20-foot cargo has a usable capacity of 25-28cbm. This is the equivalent of 10 or eleven conventional pallets of storage capacity. If you’re going to empty a full shipping container, you’ll need a space that can accommodate 10 pallets.
