A person who wants to ship items to Kosovo, most likely won’t know what to expect. The person might not even have the faintest idea because there are factors that will affect the cost of shipping. For a start, the size of your cargo, and the distance between the originating country and the destination country, will be a factor in determining the cost of shipping. There are other factors to consider, but first, know that Three Men And A Truck ships items to Kosovo. We will go into detail and help you understand these shipping factors. 

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Kosovo

These are the main factors to consider when shipping a container:

  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped: The more the items you intend to ship, the higher the cost. The same goes for weight.
  • The type of transportation used: Transportation of cargo by air is faster, but will increase the cost of shipping when compared to shipping by sea in certain conditions. Shipping certain items to the landlocked country might be slightly more expensive since they will be cleared in a different country and brought to their destination by land. 
  • Distance: The distance between the two countries will affect the cost of shipping. 
  • The destination port: The destination port affects the cost of shipping cargo because port fees can vary. 
  • The peak period for shipping items to Kosovo is between August and October. Shipping during this period affects the cost of shipping.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Without experience, it will be difficult to estimate the right shipping container size for your cargo. Let us make the calculation easier. The contents of a three-bedroom house can fit into a 20ft shipping container. A 20ft shipping container, alternatively, can contain around 50 fridges. If you know your intended cargo is more than this estimation, it would be a good idea to look into using a 40ft container.

These estimations assume your items will fill the container. This kind of shipping is called Full Container Load (FCL). There are situations where a person’s cargo doesn’t fill a container. In such a scenario, the customer should consider Less Than Container Load (LCL). In LCL, shipments from different clients will be aggregated into a single container and shipped. Cubic meters is the metric used in calculating shipping cost.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

The primary methods of freight transportation are sea, air, truck, and rail. The first three methods are the most common methods of transporting cargo into the country. 

The choice of method depends on the kind of item being shipped. If the cargo consists of household items or a car, shipping by sea is a more suitable option. Since the destination country is landlocked, transportation by sea might take more time than usual. This should be factored into the decision.

There is also the option of freight transportation by air. It can be quicker than sea transportation, but it is usually more expensive. Smaller items, fragile items, or items that are time-sensitive, will benefit from freight by air. In the case of air transport, the cargo has to be inspected and cleared at the destination airport and then transported inland by a vehicle or a smaller plane.

Additional Shipping Costs

There are usually additional shipping costs when shipping a container anywhere. The additional shipping costs to expect are:

  • Insurance: Insuring items adds to the overall cost of shipping. They are vital in providing much-needed cover for your cargo.
  • Custom fees: Kosovo has a value-added tax (VAT) of 8% on essential goods and 18% on other imported goods. There is also a 10% custom fee on non-agricultural imports.
  • Inspection: You might be charged for inspection of the shipped items. This will add to the overall cost.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): This is an adjustment of freight rates across specific trade routes. If the demand for shipping on a route increases, shipping costs might also increase.
  • Delivery Times: The delivery times can add to shipping costs. If a client requires express shipping, there will be additional costs.
