Shipping a container to another country, like Peru, costs around $2000 to $3000. There’s no way to tell the exact amount that you need to pay because the shipping process is no easy task. A lot of factors are involved in calculating your overall shipping fee, like the shipping services you acquired.

The cost of shipping services also varies depending on the moving company.

Three Men And A Truck ensures that you’ll get quality logistic services without worrying about the cost. We could ship your container anywhere in the world without complications.

But how much does it cost to ship a container to Peru using our services? To answer that question, we should first talk about the factors that affect the overall cost.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

There are many factors that could affect the cost of shipping. For instance, the moving companies are calculating your rate based on these factors:

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

But aside from those, your shipping cost mainly depends on the properties of your cargo, destination, and your chosen mode of transportation. To give you an idea, here’s how they affect your shipping expense:

  • Cargo type: Your stuff will be measured and weighed by the moving company. You will pay more than the average cost if it exceeds the allowed measures for transportation.
  • Destination: Your shipping charge heavily affects the shipping charge. Usually, you’ll have to pay a higher delivery cost if your container would have a long-distance trip.
  • Mode of transportation: The cost of shipping varies depending on the mode of transit. The most expensive type of transport is air freight, whereas land freight is the most economical.

In addition to that, shipping your cargo during the peak season in Peru would also increase your expected shipping cost. With that said, it’s best to avoid shipping a container during the months of May to September.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me? 

A 20-foot or 40-foot container is the best option. These containers are suitable for transferring both residential and business items.

A three-bedroom house can be packed inside a 20-foot container. All of your stuff in your garage, living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom would be included.

The 40ft container, on the other hand, would double that storage space. To give you a better picture, it can contain 20 ordinary pallets or 800 flat-screen TVs.

If you don’t have enough items to fill an entire container, you can ship your cargo through LCL (Less Than Container Load) shipment. In this type of shipment, you will share the cargo space and cost of using the container.

The LCL can sometimes be complicated, so if you want to avoid problems associated with it, choose FCL (Full Container Load). If you pick this, you will pay for the entire container, and the moving company will ship it even if it’s not full.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

Moving companies use air, land, and sea freight to transfer containers to different places.

You can choose either of these options. It’s possible to reach Peru by land if you’re shipping from the United States.

However, land and sea freight are slower modes of transportation. It could take days or weeks before your container arrives in Peru.

If you want to move your container fast, choose air freight. It would only take a day before your container arrives at its destination. In case you chose this option, expect to spend more because your shipping fee is calculated based on the weight of your cargo.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

● All containers will be waterproof and come with a product guarantee. They are priced accordingly but are not guaranteed to be light and watertight.
● Vents on the upper part of the side walls are manufactured for shipping containers. These might make containers placed inside a wet or cold environment prone to moisture and may accumulate rust, so it would be wise to have your ventilation checked now and then.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

Some service rendering companies 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.”

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Peru?

Superintendencia Nacional de Aduanas y de AdministraciónTributaria (SUNAT) requires specific documentation when shipping to Peru.
A Customs Merchandise Declaration (DAM – in Spanish)
● A commercial invoice
● An airbill or bill of lading
● A packing list
● An insurance letter.
● A certificate of origin is required for products coming from other countries, causing U.S. firms to experience delays clearing products through Customs. Several imports are subject to antidumping and countervailing duties. The list of products and countries is available at ALADI.
● A sanitary food registry is required for processed food products (issued by DIGESA’s Food and Environmental Health Bureau or a Sanitary Certificate for the animal, plants, or their by-products published by SENASA).
● For food and beverages, the importer must submit a sworn application to DIGESA accompanied by a Certificate of Free Trade and Use issued by the health authority of the country of origin, the future label, and the registration receipt. If the certificate is not available, the importer should present a document issued by the Peruvian Consulate in the country of origin.

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

The Peruvian agency, SENASA, established strict regulations regarding Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and other diseases. However, in April 2015, SENASA approved the USDA Veterinary Health Certificate to import U.S. live cattle.

● USDA Accredited Veterinarians may issue health certificates electronically through the online Veterinary Export Health Certification System.
● Requirements for live animals’ exports to Peru can be found at the APHIS website.
● Imports of used cars more than five years old and used buses and trucks more than two years old are prohibited. Used medical equipment is only permitted for individual physicians buying their equipment for their use.

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

When shipping your goods to Peru, ensure that the moving company you are working with is the right fit to support your shipping needs. That’s why Three Men And A Truck is here to guide you as you tap into the distinctive elements between two kinds of partner companies, such as Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs) and Freight Forwarders.

The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) labels both Freight Forwarders and NVOCCs as Ocean Transportation Intermediaries. This is due to their similar FMC nature, but there are particular distinctions between the two. For instance, a Freight Forwarder doesn’t own containers, working as an agent to shippers. NVOCCs, on the other hand, do own and/or manage cargo containers.

A freight broker is a person that serves as the bridge between the shipping client and a freight transportation provider.

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

As a result of the PTPA, U.S. consumer and industrial goods exports to Peru are no longer subject to tariffs.

● For agricultural products, tariffs have been eliminated on almost 90 percent of U.S. exports, with the remaining tariffs phased out by 2026.

● Most imports (93 percent of codes) are also subject to an 18 percent value-added tax (VAT), as are domestically produced goods.

● In addition, an excise tax (ISC) is applied to certain products such as tobacco and alcoholic beverages.

Can I Track My Container While in Transit?

You may 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

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

Yes, your presence is required when the container arrives because your signature must legalize specific documents. You also have to supervise the moving team when the container comes to see if the goods are damaged.
