Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are factors to be considered when calculating the total amount needed to ship a container to Lithuania and these include:

The Volume/Weight of The Goods

This is determined based on the kind of shipping you are using. For instance, sea freight deals mostly with the size of the goods, while air freight deals with the weight of the goods.

Type of Transport

Transportation is another important factor that determines the cost and time it takes for your goods to arrive at their destination.

The Distance of the Journey

Simply put, the farther the distance, the greater the costs required to move your goods.

The Destination Port

Every country has custom tariffs and service costs, which are unavoidable. The average tariff for imported goods in Lithuania is 15%.

The Time of Year

There is a peak season for international shipping. Late spring or summer is usually the peak season for shipping in Lithuania. Although, if you are looking for the best deals, then you should avoid shipping during peak season because prices for delivering goods are normally higher.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works for Me?

No less than 16 containers are available for shipping. However, you should only concern yourself with just two which are: the 20ft and 40ft.

How Big Is A 20ft Container?

A 20ft container can store items or contents found in a three-bedroom home. It is synonymous with the size of a single garage.

How Big Is A 40ft Container?

A 40ft container will give you twice the size of a 20ft container at a little addition to the expense, thereby making it a good value for money. It is recommended that you use a 40ft container when transporting large items.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

We have designed a system whereby clients with a smaller volume of cargo can share a container. This is the “Less Than Container Load” (LCL).

If your goods are equivalent to the contents of a one to three-bedroom apartment, then LCL is the better option for you. However, anything above that will require you to use an entire container. This is known as the “Full Container Load” (FCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

The mode of transportation is a vital factor to consider when dealing with international shipping. This enables you to know the best channel to use when it comes to quick delivery and cost friendliness. Below is useful information regarding the different types of freight transportation available in Lithuania that will help you determine your choice:

Sea Freight

This is the best way to ship containers to another country if you’re considering costs. There’s only one major shipping line in Lithuania; it connects through the Curonian Spit to the Nemunas Delta and Klaipeda.

Air Freight

It is the fastest way to ship goods into Lithuania from another country. Although the country itself has only 3 passenger airports.

Train Freight

This is not an ideal means of transportation in Lithuania as their railroads are below that of other developed countries.

Truck Freight

This is the most ideal means of transporting your goods within the geographical locality of Lithuania, given that the country has one of the best roads in Eastern Europe.

Additional Shipping Costs

Upon deciding on the mode of transportation you will be using, you will have to consider the following additional shipping charges:

  • Customs duties
  • Generate Rate Increase (GRI)
  • Container inspection fees
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees

The Bill of Lading is a document executed by a carrier, such as a railroad or shipping line, acknowledging receipt of goods and embodying an agreement to transport the goods to a stated destination. It also verifies the state of the goods before they are transported.

What’s The Difference Between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Before shipping a container to Lithuania, you must first study the difference between taxes, tariffs, and duties.

Customs duties are dependent on product information, while tariffs are fees incurred to products from countries for specific times. Lastly, tax rates are calculated on the complete value of the goods imported into the country.

Every country has different fee responsibilities, with different duration, laws, and forms. To ensure that you consent with both the primary and more particularly good documentation requirements, you should work with trusted international partners such as Three Men And A Truck.

Waterproof: All new and used containers will be waterproof and come with a product guarantee. However, containers sold in “AS-IS” condition may have holes or irregular damage such as damaged corner posts.

Ventilation: Shipping containers are manufactured with vents on the upper portion of the side walls. These vents can make containers placed in a cold or wet environment more prone to condensation and eventually rust, so it is wise to check your ventilation often.
