Are you considering transporting equipment, household, or office items to Nauru? You may worry that you do not know the right steps to ensure that you achieve your goal. We can assist you in doing the thinking, planning, and transportation of your cargo. Three Men And A Truck will walk you through the considerations required to achieve your goal.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Shipping

The Cost of shipping is a major factor that can decide whether it will be favorable for you to transport your goods or hold out for a while. This is why it is essential to know the factors that can influence the cost. They include the following:

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

Bulky and heavy products cost more in charges. If your items are large and heavy, you should consider a freight transport that pays less for high volumes.

Type of Transport

Nauru is an island whose mode of international shipping is by sea or its international airport. Sea shipping is the cheaper of the two options but it is also slower. You may consider using sea freight when you are not worried about how long it will take to transport your cargo.

Another consideration is that sea freight charges less for bulky items. So if your items are large and you want to save cost, you should consider this option.

The Distance of the Journey

How far do we need to travel in getting your cargo to Nauru? This factor affects the cost of transportation and time of delivery. The more the distance, the higher the charges. The distance from the destination port or airport to your home or office should also be considered. You will need to pay for truck services to carry your items. You can choose to use our local trucks for this service, for a fee.

The Destination Port

International shipping attracts taxes and duties based on the commodity description and coding system of the country. Nauru uses the CIF method which calculates import taxes and duties based on the value of imported goods. Its taxes range from 0-20%, based on your shipment information. Restrictions are placed on certain importations and require special permission.

What Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

Container sizes are different and are chosen based on need and specifications. The general use containers of 20ft and 40ft sizes are commonly used for household and relocation shipping.

How Big is a 20Ft Container?

Twenty feet containers carry up to 25000kg of items. It can carry a car but will not have much room to add other stuff. So if your items are collectively more, you should consider using the 40ft container.

How Big is a 40ft Container?

The 40ft container is twice the size of the 20ft container. It provides more comfort to your items and is easier to load due to the extra space.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

FCL and LCL stand for Full Container Load and Less Than Container Load. Full container load allows you the privacy of a full container in the transportation of your cargo. Less than container load allows you to share the container with other users with less volume of commodities.

Additional Shipping Costs

Additional charges that require consideration include:

  • Customs duties
  • General Rate Increase (GRI)
  • Container inspection fees
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Quarantine fees
  • Insurance cover

Frequently Asked Questions

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

The following items are prohibited from importation, meaning they won’t be allowed to enter Nauru.

● Arms and ammunition
● Ceramic products
● Inorganic chemicals
● Live trees and other plants
● Mineral fuels and oils
● Miscellaneous manufactured articles
● Paper and paperboard
● Photographic and cinematographic articles
● Printed articles, books, newspapers- offensive by nature
● Soap, washing preparations
● Tanning and dyeing extracts

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

It’s necessary to understand how to discern taxes and duties from each other because their usage mostly gets interchanged.

● Duties. Customs duty is a tax compiled by Nauru customs as government earnings and to defend local communities. This is made up of export duties, submerging taxes, excise duties, and trade tariffs.

● Taxes. A tax is a government payment gained from purchased goods entering a country. This involves goods and services tax (GST), bargaining tax, value-added tax (VAT).

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A Bill of Lading is a record of trade goods received on board. It establishes a written agreement between a client and a transport company. It makes the transaction binding and legal.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

In case you misplace, unintentionally destroy, or lose the Bill of Lading to a thief, you won’t be able to acquire a replica without the provision of having the original copy found. You are required to present specific requirements to obtain another copy. These documents are a court order, bank guarantee, letter of indemnity, a letter from the shipper, and a packing list and commercial invoice.

What’s The Difference Between A Freight Forwarder, a Broker, And An NVOCC?

When shipping your goods to Nauru, it is essential to ensure that a company renders to your needs efficiently. That’s why the Three Men And A Truck team will guide you while you study the distinction between two kinds of connecting companies which are the Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs) and the Freight Forwarders.

The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) allocates Freight Forwarders and NVOCCs as Ocean Transportation Intermediaries. They are expressed as similar during most transportation transactions due to their corresponding FMC classification, but there is considerable divergence between the two. These diversities are probable in the field of numerous international maritime and shipping modes.

Freight brokers are the ones that serve as the bridge between the shipping client and the freight transportation provider.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

● 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.

Can I Track My Container While in Transit?

It can easily make us anxious when we have no surveillance equipment over our container, but Three Men And A Truck got your back. You can track your container while it is in transit, and you can use one or all of these ways to do so:

● Personal, up-close monitoring
● GPS asset tracking
● Live Satellite Imagery
● Container Tracking Services
● Automatic Identification System Tracking

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

Service rendering companies can also experience emergencies, and transport companies fall into that trap as well. The number of containers lost at sea is surprising! That’s why we need insurance policies.

To prevent paying for additional costs, ensure that you have your Bill of Lading with you to protect the cargo against inevitable losses. In the event of failure, a cargo insurance policy indemnifies the cargo interest. Most cargo insurance policies are underwritten on an “all-risk basis.”

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

Can you imagine experiencing getting your container removed out of the ship just because you didn’t do your research on particular destination demands?

● 20-foot storage containers require about 75 feet of straight clearance.
● 40-foot storage containers demand about 100 feet of straightforward clearance. For most containers, you need a minimum of 12 feet of width clearance and 20 feet of overhead clearance.

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

To clear shipment in Nauru, the client must be in the country. Some documents will need personal signature signage from the customer. The client must also be present to check the contents inside the container itself.
