Our goal at Three Men And A Truck is to save you the headache of figuring out how to ship a container. We can deliver your shipment to most countries in the world, including Malta. Transparency being one of our core principles, we break down all the elements that determine the shipping cost.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

Our pricing formula takes five main factors into account:

  1. The time of the year: When the demand rises during the high season (August, September, January, and February), shipping costs follow the same trajectory.
  2. The destination port: You will be charged port fees upon arrival. The rates vary from port to port.
  3. The mode of transport.
  4. The distance covered.
  5. Your cargo’s weight and volume.

Remember that the experts at Three Men And A Truck will strive to ensure you have all the information needed to make the most cost-effective decision.

Other factors that are relevant when calculating the shipping cost include:

  • General Rate Increase (GRI): The GRI is a tool for maintaining profit margins when operating costs change.
  • Insurance: Your peace of mind will cost a proportion of the cargo’s value.
  • Customs fees: Customs officials will rely on Malta’s laws to determine your import duty obligations.
  • Inspections: You bear the cost of inspection if your container is selected for inspection.

Focus on the two standard choices available. The 20ft container fits anything below a three-bedroom house, while the 40ft container fits cargo that fits a four-bedroom at the minimum.

You have the luxury of the Full Container Load (FCL) option, which entails having only your cargo fitted in the container. If you feel there is enough room to share, you can select the Less Than Container Load (LCL) option, where you split the cost of the container with other parties whose cargo is loaded onto the container.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

Due to the intercontinental transport aspect of shipping a container to Malta, rail and road transport are not viable options. Here are your options:

  1. Sea Freight: While you will have to be patient and wait for 2-8 weeks, you will be happy to know that it costs five times less than the price of air transport.
  2. Cargo Plane: Get value for your money by getting your shipment to Malta in 2-4 business days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Malta?

Before shipping a container to Malta, you must take into consideration the following documentation requirements

The Single Administrative Document (SAD). The SAD describes goods and their movement worldwide and is essential for trade outside the EU or trade of non-EU goods. Goods brought into the EU customs territory are subject to customs supervision until customs formalities are completed.

The Summary Declaration. The Summary Declaration is filed by the person who brought the goods into the customs territory of the Community or by any person who assumes responsibility for carriage of the goods following such entry, or the person in whose name the person referred to above acted.

Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI). All companies established outside of the EU must have an EORI number if they wish to lodge a customs declaration or an Entry/Exit Summary declaration and should use this number for their customs clearances. More information about the EORI can be found on this page.

For more information about the listed documents, please visit the International Trade Administration’s website.

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

If you’re planning to ship a specific item to Malta, you must know certain restrictions on some goods. Make sure to abide by the following products’ stipulations to avoid delays and be held at Customs:

● Animal Products
● Cosmetics
● Discs
● Electrical Items
● Films
● Honey
● Intercompany Data on CD-ROM/Disk
● Parts
● Shoes
● Test Reagent
● Textiles
● Toys
● USB Sticks

● Drugs
● Electronic Cigarette / Vaping Product
● Food
● Gambling Devices
● Medicine
● Military Equipment
● Miscellaneous
● Personal Effects

What Is a Bill of Lading?

The Bill of Lading is a document provided by the shipping carrier, acknowledging receipt of products and embodying an agreement to transport the goods to a stated destination. It creates a written agreement between a transport company and its client.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

All containers will be waterproof and come with a product guarantee. However, when a container is sold in “AS-IS” condition, it may have holes or crooked impairment, such as damaged corner posts. They are priced accordingly but are not guaranteed to be light and watertight.

Vents on the upper part of the side walls are manufactured for shipping containers. These might make containers placed inside a wet or cold environment prone to moisture and may accumulate rust, so it would be wise to have your ventilation checked every now and then.

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

When delivering a container to your site, you should consider a few factors. You must know in advance the details about permitting requirements, clearance space, delivery fees, and ground conditions.

Most of the time, you will be required to allow at least 12 and 20 feet of width and overhead clearance, respectively, for containers. Furthermore, a 20-ft container would need about 75ft of support, while a 40-ft one needs about 100ft.

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

You must be aware of special tariff rates and fees when shipping to Malta.

When products enter the EU, importers should declare them to customs according to their classification in the Combined Nomenclature (CN). All products joining the EU are classified under a tariff code that carries information on:

● Duty rates and other levies on imports and exports
● Any applicable protective measures (e.g., anti-dumping)
● External trade statistics
● Import and export formalities and other non-tariff requirements.

The importer also must pay Value Added Tax (VAT), which goes up to 18 percent.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

Containers can get lost, destroyed, or stolen. To avoid huge costs related to these events, we advise you to purchase insurance beforehand. To prevent paying for additional costs, ensure that you have your Bill of Lading with you to protect the cargo against inevitable losses.

A cargo insurance policy indemnifies the cargo motive. Most cargo insurance policies are underwritten on an “all-risk basis.” This means that the insured is covered for risk of loss or damage except for those risks that are expressly excluded in the policy, such as loss or damage due to willful destruction of the goods by the insured or the inherent vice of the goods.
