Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are various factors that affect the overall shipping cost. However, the size and weight of your cargo, destination, and type of transportation largely determine your expenses.

The time when you would ship your cargo will also affect the overall cost. Even the shipping industry has its peak season. Normally, there is an increase in shipping rates during summer and days before and after the Chinese New Year.

In Monaco, ports are likely busy during April and October. If you’re planning to ship a container during these months, anticipate a slight increase in the shipping rate.

Aside from those, here are other things that could affect the overall cost of shipping a container in Monaco.

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?  

There are many types of containers. But if you’re only moving residential and commercial stuff, a 20ft or 40ft container is enough.

A 20ft container is suitable for moving the contents of an average-size home. To give you a better picture, it can contain ten standard-size pallets.

If you are moving more items, let’s say stuff from a micro or small business, the 40ft container is the ideal choice. It has enough room for your business supplies and equipment.

The cost of using 20ft or 40ft containers is not far from each other. You can use a 40ft container without spending lots of cash.

It’s possible to split the cost of using a container with another person. This type of shipment is called LCL or Less Than a Container. In this type of shipment, you would share the cargo space with another individual or business.

If you don’t prefer the complexity of LCL, pay for the entire container instead. You can move the cargo whether the container is full or not. This type of shipment is called FCL or Full Container Load, and it’s pretty straightforward.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You have three options for the type of transportation, land, air, and sea freight.

Land freight is the cheapest option. It makes use of the roads and railways to transport your container to a different destination. Though inexpensive, this is not always the viable option because it’s limited to places accessible by roads or railways.

To ship your container to Monaco, pick either air and sea freight. Each of them has its pros and cons. That means the right choice depends on your plan and budget.

If you want to ship the container fast, you can choose air freight. The delivery process would only take a matter of days, but it comes with a hefty price.

Meanwhile, if you’re not in a hurry and want to save money, sea freight would be the right choice. In this type of transportation, your cargo might arrive at its destination after a couple of days or weeks.

Tariffs are fees imposed by a government for categories of products at specific times.

A cargo insurance policy enforces the cargo interest. Most cargo policies are created 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.

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 crooked impairment, such as damaged corner posts. They are priced depending on their capabilities but are not warranted to be wind and watertight.

Ventilation. Vents on the upper part of the side walls are created for moving containers. These might make containers placed inside a wet or cold surrounding vulnerable to wetness and eventually become rusty, so it would be wiser to check your ventilation once in a while.
