There are a few things to consider when shipping a container to another country and we are here to help.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are some factors to consider when calculating the cost of shipping a container to another country.

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

This is heavily influenced by the type of shipment you select. Sea freight, for example, is more concerned with the size of your goods, whilst air freight is more concerned with their weight.

Mode of Transportation

Both the cost and the time it takes for your things to arrive are influenced by the mode of shipment. Air freight is typically quicker but more expensive than sea freight. Sea freight, on the other hand, is usually five times cheaper. As a result, you have the freedom to choose which mode of transportation you prefer.

The Distance of the Journey

Everyone recognizes that the longer the shipping distance, the higher the cost. Additionally, the cost of shipping is usually influenced when your goods are delivered from door to door or port to port.

The Destination Port

If you’re shipping a package internationally, you can be charged a customs duty and an import tax. Each country has its own set of customs tariffs and service fees. In Morocco, if the total worth of your purchases exceeds 125 USD, you will be charged a 20% import tax. For example, if the claimed worth of your items is $150, an additional $30.00 in taxes must be paid to the destination country’s government in order for the items to be delivered.

The Time of Year

When it comes to international shipping, there is always a high season. This usually occurs between August till October, with a lesser period in January and February. During these times, shipping is normally very expensive, so you may wish to avoid shipping your goods during this time of the year.

Which Size of Shipping Works Best for Me?

A 20-foot or 40-foot container will most likely transport your items, even though there are at least 16 different types of containers. A 20-foot container can hold the contents of a three-bedroom apartment, whereas a 40-foot container can hold twice as much. 40-foot containers rarely cost twice as much as 20-foot containers, even if they are double the size.

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

The amount of speed you require, as well as if you need to ship overseas, will determine the mode of transportation you select. Air freight is the ideal alternative if you need your items to arrive promptly. If you need your goods to arrive quickly, air freight is the best option. Air freight, on the other hand, is typically more expensive than other modes of transportation. Sea freight is the most cost-effective option. It is usually five times cheaper than air freight, but it is extremely slow. So it all depends on what you’re looking for.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

A container may be tracked using a number of means, including the internet, a GPS tracking device, or satellite imagery. Clients are also kept up to date on the status of their cargo through a freight tracking system. You may check the location of your cargo container online, or you can be notified via phone or email.

However, some companies now provide their own container monitoring systems. You simply need your shipment’s tracking number to keep track of your goods.

To monitor your cargo, just enter the tracking code on the delivery company’s website.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Morocco?

When shipping a container internationally, the following documents are frequently required:

● Commercial and Proforma Invoices

● Safety Data Sheet (SDS)

● A “customs declaration” (declaration de douane) is provided by the Customs Administration, which is necessary for import and export through a port or airport.

What’s the Difference between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Shipping duties are a type of cross-border tax imposed by customs to help the government raise revenue and protect local companies.

Customs officials in a country levy shipping charges on certain imports and exports. In most cases, the value of the products is used to determine the amount of import taxes that must be paid. In some cases, shipping taxes are also known as import taxes, import tariffs, or tariffs.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading, also known as a BOL, is a legal agreement between two parties. It serves as a legally binding contract and includes all necessary shipment details. It includes the shippers’ and consignees’ names as well as contact information. A thorough list of the things being carried is also included in the BOL. This list will include the amount and weight of the cargo.

The bill of lading will include any special instructions for the shipment. This notification might be put on the bill of lading if the consignee requests that the shipper phone the delivery site 24 hours prior to delivery.

Why Do FCL and LCL Shipments Have Different Transit Times?

The shipping crew does not update the FCL shipment. It is not altered in any way; however, it may be re-handled at a different port if direct service between points is unavailable.

LCL shipments, on the other hand, are made up of different cargoes from several consignees. These cargoes are modified or opened in each port of destination before being transported to their final destination.

What is the Maximum Weight That Can Be Loaded into a Container?

A 20-foot shipping container’s tare weight is 2,300 kg, whereas the maximum cargo weight (payload) that may be loaded safely and legally is 28130 kg.

Keep in mind, however, that this is merely theoretical information; you will not be able to load 28 TON.
