Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

When moving a container internationally, there are numerous issues to consider. However, there are five key factors to consider in general. The following are the details:

  • Your cargo’s volume and weight
  • The mode of transportation
  • The amount of time it will take to deliver your package/
  • Charges that must be paid at the destination port
  • The season (the time of the year)

Which Size of Shipping Containers Works Best for Me?

The most frequent sizes utilized for shipment are the 20-foot and 40-foot shipping containers. The contents of a three-bedroom apartment may be transported in a 20-foot container, whereas a four-to-five-bedroom house can be transported in a 40-foot container).

Difference Between FCL and LCL

If you have enough stuff to fill a shipping container, the shipping process will be accelerated because your items will be loaded into the container rapidly. As a result, unlike groupage, you won’t have to wait until it’s completely full before using it.

If you have a little load and aren’t in a hurry, groupage (sharing a container) can be a better option. This is the most affordable means of transit, but it is also the slowest. “Less than a container load” is the term for this kind of partial cargo (LCL).

In contrast, a volume greater than this will need the usage of the entire container. This is referred to as a “full container load” (FCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Depending on your products, suppliers, and trading practices, you may need one or a combination of freight transportation to get your cargo to the right place.

Kiribati is a small island republic in the Pacific Ocean. It is difficult to get to and from Kiribati, and there is restricted access. Due to the island’s isolation, regular flight services are the main method to get to Kiribati. Kiribati has two international airports, one each on the islands of Tarawa and Kiritimati. Shipping products through air freight, on the other hand, is usually costly in Kiribati so you may want to use sea freight. Sea freight is frequently used since it is less expensive. However, the lack of enforcement of the Maritime Act, which has an impact on safety, is a problem with inter-island shipping services in Kiribati.

Additional Shipping Costs

You may incur additional delivery expenses, such as:

  • Insurance
  • Container inspection fees
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Custom duties
  • General rate increase
  • Quarantine fees

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It is not necessary for you to be there when the container comes. You can enlist someone to monitor the procedure and sign the necessary documents on your behalf. However, we urge that you be there when the container is delivered so that you may sign the paperwork indicating that you have received the cargo.

If no one is available to retrieve the container, the shipping staff will most likely place it in the most suitable area and will follow the instructions/requests in your shipping agreement.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Unfortunately, shipping containers aren’t completely waterproof. They are, nevertheless, water-resistant. They can resist the impacts of inclement weather.

Watertight containers are made of materials that do not allow water to flow through. By keeping water out, watertight containers may also be utilized to transport liquids.

To provide for airflow and lower the risk of condensation, vents are built in the sidewalls of the shipping container. A 20-foot container contains two to ten vents, while a 40-foot container has four to twelve vents.

To block pests and insects away, shipping containers have vents that are roughly 1 inch (2.5cm) square and topped with mesh.

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

A freight forwarder is a company that arranges commercial transportation for the goods of other businesses. The freight forwarder is generally responsible for cargoes until they reach their end location.

Customs brokerage services facilitate the movement and delivery of goods across international boundaries. They are in charge of comprehending all of the shipping rules and regulations and ensuring that they are followed in order to make exporting and importing items simple for any individual or company.

NVOCC is an acronym that stands for Non-Vessel Owning Common Carrier.” The sales, stuffing, and transit of containers to gateway ports are all part of the NVOCC business. The employees of NVOCC handle the bill of lading issuing and overseas distribution. They make arrangements with shipping companies to ensure that a specific number of units are shipped each year. In exchange, the shipping line provides the NVOCC discounted prices. As a result, NVOCC became the leading trade maker for container shipments.

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

If you ship a container from the United States to a different country, you will pay a customs fee and an import tax.

Customs tax applies to all products imported into Kiribati. The fee cost varies depending on the classification of the products in question, ranging from 5% to 150 percent. Luxury items, such as perfumes, have higher import tariffs.

The price of importing products varies per country, so visit the Kiribati government’s website for more information.

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

A 20-foot shipping container can transport cargoes weighing up to 30480 kg (67200 lbs.). Meanwhile, the maximum payload for a 40ft container is 44,500 lbs. (20,185kg). 

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

You can track the location of your container using GPS tracking devices, such as those present in most automobiles.

However, several businesses now use their own container tracking system. This allows them to keep track of the exact location of their fleet’s ships at all times.

The shipping tracker systems also help them keep their clients fully informed about the progress of their shipment. Your cargo container’s whereabouts may be tracked online, or you can be alerted via phone or email.
