How much does it cost to ship a container to Norway? Well, there are many factors that can affect the entire shipping cost. But before you can start calculating the expenses, you must first find a reliable shipping partner, like Three Men And A Truck.

Unlike other shipping companies, we offer transparency, and we can assure you that your container will arrive in Norway safe and sound. But how much will it cost you to ship abroad? Let’s see.

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

Shipping a container overseas might cost anything from $2000 to $3000. But keep in mind that this is simply an estimate. There’s no way to tell the exact price because a number of factors can affect it.

Shipping companies calculate the cost of moving based on factors such as the properties of your cargo, the mode of transportation, and the destination.

Also, the time of the year heavily determines the overall shipping cost. During peak seasons, the shipping rates are higher than usual because ports will be busy with a large number of incoming and outgoing cargo.

The peak season in Norway is between the middle of June and the end of August. This period is when the crowds will be at their heaviest.

Apart from that, here are additional factors that will affect your overall 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 of container will depend on your items or budget. But you can narrow down your options to 20ft and 40ft containers. These are the ideal sizes for shipping residential and business cargo.

The 20ft container is enough to hold your stuff from an average-sized garage. If you are moving commercial goods, its storage capacity is enough to carry ten standard-sized pallets.

The 40ft alternative, on the other hand, has enough area for the contents of a three-bedroom house.

You can move your container through FCL (Full Container Load) or LCL (Less Than Container Load) shipment. In FCL, you will pay for the entire container to begin moving your cargo. Meanwhile, in LCL, you have to share the space of the container with another individual. Of course, you and the other person using the container will split the cost of using it.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You can ship a container through land, air, or sea. But since Norway is your destination, sea freight and air freight are your only option.

Here’s the difference between the two to help you pick the right option:

  • Sea freight is a way of carrying large quantities of goods by ship. It’s a cost-effective method to move huge amounts across long distances because a typical cargo ship can carry about 18,000 containers.
  • Air freight is the method of shipping products through an air carrier. Many people and businesses choose this type of transport because it assures that their cargo can go to and land anyplace in the world where an aircraft can fly.

Air freight is the best option if you want to ship your cargo immediately. It would only take hours or days before the air carrier completes its travel. However, this option is expensive, and your shipping rate is calculated based on the weight of your cargo.

Meanwhile, the sea freight determines your shipping rate depending on the size of your cargo. It’s more economical than air freight, but the entire trip would take days or weeks, depending on the end destination of your items.

Are There Other Fees I Have To Pay When Shipping To Norway?

Products totaling up to 350 Norwegian Krone are exempt from duty and tax. Norwegian customs tariffs for industrial products are low, around 3 to 6%. All imports from an EEA (European Economic Area) country are free from import duty. Any import of products is subject to Value Added Tax, which is currently levied at 25% (standard rate, though four other rates are in place). The VAT is deductible if the goods are intended for use in a VAT chargeable business.

How Do I Know the Difference Between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Shipping taxes are charged based on a predetermined rate system, calculated on the total value of the products imported into the country. They are imposed by the government. Shipping duties can vary but they will constantly be charged. They are based on the product’s characteristics. Shipping duties are a kind of shipping tax. They are imposed by the government to protect local industries, making the imported product more expensive than the locally made ones.

Which Kind Of Mode Of Shipping Is Faster?

First, we have to be familiar with what the modes of shipping are. They are Full Cargo Load (FCL) and Less Than Cargo Load (LCL).

Full Cargo Load (FCL) is when a client decides to fill up one container for the shipment. The client is responsible for packing and unpacking the container from the departure point to the destination. Once this is sent for shipping, it will go directly to the destination port.

Less Than Cargo Load (LCL) is when multiple clients make use of one container. The shipping company will have to pack and unpack the items for shipping. Once it is sent for shipping, the container can go through multiple ports. It can get reworked and reorganized through each stop. This is why an LCL shipment is slower than an FCL.

Can I Track My In-Transit Cargo?

Yes. You can track your cargo even if it’s in transit. Through the “cargo tracking system”, you can track your cargo from anywhere and anytime in the world. All you need is your container number, bill of lading, booking number, and the shipping line. You can get port details through this system too.

Do I Have to Be Present When My Container Is Going to Be Delivered?

You’d have to sign off the delivery for the completion of your shipment process and we’d love for you to be there when we deliver your container so we can see you satisfied with the service.

How Much Space Do I Need When I Get a Home Delivery?

We recommend that you have a lot of space when you’re having a home delivery for your containers. Since the containers are 8’ wide, you will need a minimum of 10’ clearance. 20’ containers will need around 50’ straightaway clearance, while a 40’ container will need 110’ straightaway clearance. A minimum of 17’ overhead clearance is recommended, as well. Please do clear the overhead clearance of any debris that may be in the way of delivery. You will need as much space as possible for the trailer to dropoff your container.
