But how much would it cost to move your container to this country?

How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Container to Latvia?

The international shipping rates range from $2000 to $3000. That price could either go up or down depending on numerous factors, such as the aspects of your cargo, distance, type of transportation, and time.

Moving bulky packages is more expensive. You see, your shipping fee will depend on the weight of your cargo if you choose to move it via air freight. On the other hand, sea freight will calculate the cost based on the dimensions of your package.

A similar policy also applies to the distance of your cargo’s end destination. If your belongings have a long-distance trip, there’s a high probability that your shipping fee will increase.

Furthermore, be mindful of when you would ship your package. Months from June to August are the busiest season for tourism in Latvia. Increased shipping rates and moving delays should be expected during this period.

Additionally, make sure to consider the following aspects as well. They could also affect the overall cost of moving a container to Latvia:

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me? 

You only have two ideal options for moving residential and commercial belongings. These are either the 20ft or 40ft containers.

The 20ft container is enough if you’re moving a few things like the contents of a two-bedroom house. The 40ft container, on the other hand, is the ideal choice for moving stuff for micro/small businesses.

The cost between the two variants is not far from each other. If you don’t want to pay for the entire container, you can ship it via LCL or Less Than Container load. You will share the cargo space and cost of using the container with other people.

But if you want a straightforward and quick shipping method, move the container through FCL or Full Container Load.

Different Types of Freight Transportation 

It’s possible to move a container through the land, air, or sea freight. The correct option depends on your location and the destination of your cargo.

Let’s assume that your container’s origin is in the United States. If that’s the case, your choice could either be air or sea freight. If you choose air freight, the shipping fee would be expensive, but the delivery process would only take a day or two.

On the other hand, sea freight is more affordable, but it would take days or weeks before your cargo arrives at its destination.

If the price isn’t a concern and time is of the essence, go with air cargo transportation. Do note that it can be around five times more expensive than sea freight transportation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do FCL and LCL Shipments Have Different Transit Times?

In an FCL shipment, the shipper is not required to share the container with other shippers’ cargo. This improves security and streamlines the administration of ocean freight transportation. This is why it is faster than LCL.

Meanwhile, in LCL shipment, the route and procedure are more complex. The container contains cargo from a variety of people or businesses. That means it will be unloaded and loaded at different ports.

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

The allowed and banned items to send are determined by the laws of the country. The following are the prohibited items to ship to Latvia. Be sure to follow the shipping instructions to avoid delays and detention at customs:

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

You may be charged a customs fee and an import tax if you move a box from the United States to another country. But since every nation is different, make sure to check the Latvian government’s website for details on importing goods.

Imported products in Latvia are subject to customs duty. Customs tax ranges from 0% to 20% of the value of imported products, depending on their kind and origin. The majority of exports are exempt.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading is a document that the shipper hands over to the carrier when the shipment is picked up. It contains all important cargo information, such as pickup and delivery addresses, contact information, total weight, freight class, special instructions, commodity description, freight dimensions, and shipping numbers, among other things.

A bill of lading is necessary for every shipment because it serves as both a receipt and an agreement. A BOL that is fully completed proves that the carrier has received the goods as stated and is committed to delivering them to the consignee in pristine condition.

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

A freight forwarder is a firm that acts as a middleman between shipping companies that import and export products and businesses that require them. Freight forwarders are in charge of all aspects of the transportation process, from holding goods before shipping to ensuring that they clear customs. They don’t handle the products directly, but they build partnerships with firms that do so that they can organize every step of a shipment on behalf of a customer. Freight forwarders collaborate with firms that deliver goods by road, rail, sea, and air.

Customs brokers serve as the catalyst for international commerce, ensuring that transactions are completed swiftly and within the law’s parameters.

They collect, organize, and manage the commercial and trade data needed to speed the flow of products across borders, as well as the payment of any tariffs and taxes.

NVOCC is for Non-Vessel Owning Common Carrier, and it is a specific agency or company that assists businesses who do not require the complete container offered by freight forwarders to carry their goods, but only a portion of it. NVOCC provides services such as container filling and transportation to various ports.

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

Container tracking solutions are currently available from a variety of companies. Such systems allow clients to keep track of their cargo’s actual position at all times.

With the use of a freight monitoring system, clients are 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 email or phone.

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

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

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