Are you feeling overwhelmed by the expanding list of belongings you have to bring and leave behind when relocating to Kazakhstan? You must be having trouble deciding between the sizes of the containers you need to choose as your agent offers you many options.

Three Men And A Truck, our organization, is here to serve you. Moving globally appears to be a major task, and doing it without professional assistance can be extremely difficult. As a result, you must be extremely cautious about every decision you make, whether it is to select different insurance policies, expedited routes for shipping your containers, or simply which company to hire.

What Are the Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping?

What are the exact details you should look at and be cautious about before making a decision? Let’s look at some of the major factors when it comes to pricing.

  • Different sizes and widths distinguish your cargo. There are 20′, 20′ cube, 40′, and 40′ cube containers available. Because cube containers have a larger cubic capacity, they can be used to convey a variety of commodities.
  • Kazakhstan and the United States are separated by 6,475 miles, which is a significant distance to travel and has an impact on fuel consumption per mile. Depending on your cost management, you can pick between different ports in the country, such as Atyrau or Aktau.
  • Container shipments from Asia to the United States should not be scheduled around peak seasons. The latter has a busy timeline that runs from June through October. Companies with resource constraints will charge greater rates than the base price on these dates, so avoid them.

What Size of Container Is According To Your Requirements?

It will be easier to save money if you are familiar with the various types of containers and their suitability. However, the container shipping market is continuously changing, and organizations are always looking for ways to optimize their relocation. It’s also critical to stay updated with the necessary information.

Three Men And A Truck presents a list of shipping containers that are suited for the packages being shipped. Here are a few:

  • High Cube Containers
  • Open Top Container
  • Thermal Container
  • Refrigerated ISO Container
  • Half-Height Container

For containers with variable ownership, there are more categories. Full Containers (FCL) are preferred by people who desire the confidentiality of their packages or who need to ship full household or firm equipment and require more capacity. In general, their rates are higher. The other category, Less Than A Container, or LCL, is defined by dual ownership, and you must adhere to the list provided with its loading limits. These have cheaper chargers and can be used effectively to save money.

What Are the Types of Transport For Relocating Containers?

Our company offers air and water transportation container services from the United States to Kazakhstan.

Air travel is more expensive, but typically container gets delivered to the desired airport in around 4-5 business days. Because air freight has weight restrictions, the packages are closely checked.

Waterways are a more cost-effective mode of transportation. You can load up to 45,000 pounds. Vehicles such as cars and SUVs can also be loaded onto the ships.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading in shipping is a record of the traded goods which have been received onboard a ship. It is a document that establishes an agreement between a shipper and a transportation company for the transportation of goods. A carrier issues these records to the shipper. A bill of lading indicates a particular carrier through which the goods have been placed to their final destination and the conditions for transporting the shipment to its final destination. A bill of lading is also a receipt issued at the destination, making it that anyone who possesses the bill can lay claim to the cargo.

What Kind of Taxes, Duties, and/or Fees Do I Have to Pay When Shipping to Kazakhstan?

Kazakhstan has an average tariff rate of 7.1%. There is a zero percent rate on approximately 1,900 tariff lines, including livestock, pork, fish products, chemical and pharmaceutical products, cotton, textiles, machinery and equipment, medical vehicles, and some types of airplanes. There is also a 10.6% tariff on agricultural products and 6.4% on non-agricultural products.

Which Documents Do I Need When Shipping to Kazakhstan?

A person, at the customs office in Jordan, must declare the paper and electronic copies of customs declarations (one copy of each per shipment), as well as accompanying documents. The accompanying documents include invoices, a contract for the supply of goods, an import transaction passport, and a bill of lading. It is important to note that foreign entities cannot deal directly with customs officials in Kazakhstan and are legally required to use services provided by licensed customs brokers having the right to operate in the country.

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to Kazakhstan?

Transactions involving the following commodities are prohibited or have restricted entry into Kazakhstan, regardless of origin: antiques, oil products, fine artwork, batteries, hazardous biological products, chemicals, cosmetics, liquor, paints, perfume, tobacco, corrosives, credit cards, and their blanks, devices for smoking opium or hashish and smoking mixtures, prescriptions drugs, fire extinguishers, flammables, furs, gambling devices, gases, graphite products, wet ice, infectious substances, magnetized materials, precious metals, military equipment, oxidizers, personal effects, poisons, political material, precious stones, psychotherapy substances, radioactive materials, and tobacco products. If you have to ship any of these items, an import permit has to be obtained. 

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

Shipping taxes are fees that are fixed and determined by the government. They aren’t dependent on the type of item and are collected for both imported and exported items. Shipping duties, on the other hand, are fees set by a government on certain imported items. These duties are aimed at protecting the economy of the country by discouraging the import of certain items and generating income. Shipping duties are tied to the type of items being imported.

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

A freight forwarder is a firm that provides agency services to shippers and interacts with carriers on the behalf of the shipper. They handle the documentation and logistics of the cargo. They don’t issue their bill of lading as they aren’t carriers. Brokers are agents that get business clients for carriers and supervise the transaction deals between shippers and carriers. None-Vessel Owning Common Carrier (NVOCC) is a company that offers carrier services to shippers even though they don’t own or operate carriers. They usually rent a portion of the haul of carriers to place their shipping containers containing items from their clients. They issue their bill of lading like carriers would.

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

Yes, it would be good if you are present when your container is being delivered as a permit for having a container will be necessary. This is because different areas have different laws concerning containers. Also, the space required to drop your container has to be made available. You should be present, finally, to check the container and see if it meets your specifications.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

You will have to adhere to a certain procedure to facilitate the release of cargo after the bill of lading is lost. A new one cannot be issued without following this procedure. The following documents have to be prepared and forwarded to the carrier.

1. A letter on the shipper’s letterhead describing the conditions of loss of the bill.
2. A letter of authorization from the shipper permitting the carrier to deliver the goods without a bill of lading.
3. A bank guarantee, guaranteeing the payment of all outstanding bills.
4. Letter of indemnity, indemnifying the carrier from all liabilities that may arise from delivering the goods without a bill of lading.
5. Commercial invoice
6. Certain carriers may require a court order from a reputable court. This may include a fee.
