How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Container to Paraguay?

The cost of shipping a container to this country usually costs around $2000. However, that cost could either go up or down depending on how you ship your container.

Different factors, such as the size and weight of your cargo, the distance it traveled, and the mode of transportation used can affect the overall shipping cost.

To give you an idea, here’s how it works. If you ship large and heavy products, the cost of shipping will rise. The same thought also applies to its distance traveled. If your container would have a long-distance trip, the shipping price will be higher.

Furthermore, the time you ship your container will have an impact on its entire shipping cost.

From June through August, the ports of Paraguay are probably busy because these are the months when most tourists visit the country. If you send your cargo during these months, expect some delays or higher shipping charges.

Aside from those, these minor factors might also affect your shipping cost:

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

There are several container sizes. However, 20ft and 40ft containers are the best options for household and commercial shipping.

A 20-foot container can store 20 standard-size pallets. If you’re doing a residential move, it can store the contents of a two-bedroom apartment.

Of course, the 40-foot version will double the capacity of the 20ft variant. However, this does not imply that you will spend more for the increased amount of space.

You can minimize your expenses by choosing the type of shipment that suits your budget.

There are two types of shipment, LCL (Less Than Container Load) and FCL (Full Container Load). In LCL shipping, you and another individual or business will split the cost and storage space of a container. While in the FCL, you will be responsible for the entire cost of using the container.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You have the option of moving your container via air, land, or sea freight. All of these options are available if you’re shipping your container from the United States.

Air freight is the fastest option. It would only take a day for your cargo to arrive at its destination. However, it’s also costly and your shipping rate largely depends on the weight of your stuff.

So, if you want to save money, you can choose land or sea freight. It’s possible to ship your container using either of these options.

In case you pick land or sea freight, don’t expect a fast shipment process. It may take a couple of days before your cargo arrives at its destination.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

Imagine this: you enter a grocery store, pick up several items, and head straight to the cashier area to pay for those items. The cashier suddenly handed you a detailed list of your purchased items. That list is just the same as a Bill of Lading.

The Bill of Lading is a document executed by a carrier, such as a railroad or shipping line, acknowledging receipt of goods and embodying an agreement to transport the goods to a stated destination.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

According to Ilo, a notice of loss or damage and the general nature of such loss or damage is given in writing to the carrier or his agent at the port of discharge before or at the time of the removal of the goods into the custody of the person entitled to delivery thereof under the contract of carriage; such removal shall be prima facie evidence of the delivery by the carrier of the goods as described in the Bill of Lading.

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

Before shipping a container to Paraguay, you must first study the difference between taxes, tariffs, and duties.

● Customs duties are dependent on product information, while tariffs are fees incurred to products from countries for specific times. Lastly, tax rates are calculated on the complete value of the goods imported into the country.

● Every country has different fee responsibilities, with different duration, laws, and forms. To ensure that you consent with both the primary and more particularly good documentation requirements, you should work with trusted international partners such as Three Men And A Truck.

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

Mercosur’s Common External Tariff (CET) averages 11.5 percent and ranges from zero to 35 percent ad valorem, with a limited number of country-specific exceptions. Paraguay’s average bound tariff rate in the WTO is significantly higher at 33.5 percent. Paraguay’s applied import tariffs tend to be much lower than the CET, ranging from zero to 30 percent, with an average applied tariff rate of 10.1 percent. Paraguay is permitted to maintain a list of 649 exceptions to the CET until December 31, 2023.

According to current Mercosur procedures, any goods imported into any member country must pay the CET to that country’s customs authorities. If the product is re-exported to any other Mercosur country, the CET must be paid again to the second country upon importation there. Thus, for any U.S. goods imported into landlocked Paraguay via any other Mercosur country, all of which have ocean ports, the CET is effectively doubled.

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

Before delivering a container to Paraguay, you must consider a few factors. You have to know in advance some important information about delivery fees, permitting requirements, ground conditions, and clearance space.

20-ft containers require a straight clearance of 75 feet. You will need a minimum of 12 feet of width clearance.

40-ft containers need a hundred. For its width, it will require 20 feet of overhead clearance.

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

Yes, you should be available when the container arrives because you must sign specific documents. You can also take this opportunity to supervise the moving team when the container is delivered so you can check if the goods are not damaged.
