How much does it cost to ship a container to Mongolia?

The average cost of moving a container overseas cost around $2000 to $3000. However, note that this is just an estimate because it’s impossible to tell the exact cost without knowing details about your cargo.

The shipping cost would depend on the characteristics of your cargo, its destination, and your chosen type of transportation.

Also, the time of when you would ship the container will affect the overall shipping cost.

Shipping your cargo to Mongolia anytime between June and August will cost you more money. These are the months when tourists visit this country, so ports would probably be busy handling a large number of items.

In addition to that, these minor factors could also change your expected shipping cost:

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

The right size depends on what you’re shipping. If you are moving ten pallets worth of items or your belongings from a two-bedroom house, a 20ft container is enough.

In case you are moving more items, you could use a 40ft container. These are your ideal options because they are the most used type of container for residential and commercial moving.

You can pay for the entire container regardless of the quantity of its content. This type of shipment is called FCL or Full Container Load.

If you don’t want to pay the cost of using the entire container, you can choose LCL or Less Than Container shipment. You will share the cost and storage space with another person or business.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

Land transit is the most often used form of transportation for both local and intracontinental shipping. It has the advantage of being simple and cheap. This type of freight transport, however, is limited to locations accessible by road or railway.

Air freight is a viable option for shipping your stuff to Mongolia. It’s quick and convenient, and it’s the ideal option if you’re only moving a few boxes at a time. But keep in mind that this option is expensive, and your shipping cost will largely depend on the weight of your cargo.

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on shipping, you can go with sea freight. Ships can transport heavier payloads at a smaller fee compared to air travel. It is the main form of transport for transporting bulky cargo.

Although it is the most cost-effective type of transportation for an international shipment, it is also the most time-consuming. It might take several days to a few weeks for your cargo to reach its destination.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Mongolia?

The necessary document for shipping containers to Mongolia depends on their government’s normal trade policy and the type of goods being imported. The products being imported, multilateral, bilateral, or unilateral trade agreements, and Mongolia’s other trade policies all impact the documents necessary for import into Mongolia.

However, the documentation process for importing products into Mongolia is nearly identical in every country. All WTO member nations want the same certificates and licenses for product and service entry. To give you a better understanding, this is the most common paperwork required for shipping a foreign container:

● Commercial and Proforma Invoices
● Bills of Lading
● Packing List
● Shipper’s Letter of Instructions (SLI)
● Automated Export System (AES) Filing
● Certificate of Origin (CO)
● Incoterms
● Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
● Operational Instructions
● Shipping Under a Letter of Credit

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

If you’re exporting items to Mongolia, it’s important to visit or check the country’s official website. This saves you time and money by avoiding the packing of items that could lead to delays or raise the delivery costs.

Here are some examples of items you can’t bring to Mongolia:

● Acids
● Alcoholic beverages
● Animal products
● Animal skins
● Antiques
● Any item which is harmful to Mongolia’s politics, economy, culture/morals
● Any medical supplies, medical equipment, food, vitamins, biological substances, or activators are prohibited to import for personal use

Why Do FCL and LCL Shipments Have Different Transit Times?

Since FCL shipment routes are easy to follow, they arrive faster. The shipping employees will not open or reload the container once your items have been loaded into it. Your container will be delivered at its target location or to the address specified in your contract.

Meanwhile, most LCL shipments take longer to arrive. Because the container contains merchandise from a range of individuals, the method and route are more complex. The container will be unloaded and updated at a number of ports.

Do I Need to Be Present When My Container Is Delivered?

Your presence is not always necessary during the delivery. You could always hire someone to oversee everything for you. Even so, it’s still a good idea to be there when the container is delivered so that it may be placed in a position that is convenient for you.

If no one is available to accept delivery on the scheduled delivery day, the transport crew will position your container in the most convenient location and follow the instructions/requests in your contract.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading is a piece of paper that serves as a receipt for goods being delivered by a carrier (shipping line) or an operator and is given to the owner of the things being shipped.

This document usually lists the products being sent, as well as the origin and destination of the shipment. The following information will be included in the document:

● Name of the carrier
● Signatures of the ship’s Master and the carrier (or legal representatives)
● Details about the items being delivered (cost, quantity, weight, size, markings/numbers, and so on).
● Date and description of cargo being loaded aboard a ship
● The loading port and the destination port are noted.
● The consignee’s name
● Carrier terms and conditions (or a reference to these)
● Special instructions regarding the shipment

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

Most imported products in Mongolia are subject to a 5% import tax, with certain items subject to extra seasonal tariffs. Customs taxes on some export products are also applicable. Upon importation or exportation, each physical or legal entity involved in international trade must pay customs charges, as well as additional taxes and fees.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

Ask the shipper or exporter how many negotiable and non-negotiable BLs they have on hand if you lost your BL. You can ask them to provide you another BL copy if it is available. But in case the cargo has already arrived at its destination, you may be charged demurrage or detention costs to keep the products at the port warehouse.
