Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping

Here are the factors that affect the cost of shipping a container:

The Volume/Weight of the Goods

Air freight deals mostly with the weight of the goods while sea freight deals with the dimension of the goods. Hence, the volume or weight of your goods will determine the shipping means to use.

Type of Transport

The mode of transporting your goods determines the time and cost for it to get to its destination.

The Distance of the Journey

A shipment over a long distance is more expensive than a short-distance shipment.

The Destination Port

Customs tariffs and service costs (which are compulsory) differ amongst countries. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines have a standard VAT rate of 15% for imported products.

The Time of the Year

December to April is the peak season for moving into Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. However, the most ideal period for shipping is from May to June.

Which Size of Shipping Container Will Work Best for Me?

The two major types of containers relating to shipping are the 20ft and 40ft containers.

How Big is a 20ft Container?

A 20ft container is synonymous with the size of a single garage. It can contain the belongings of a three-bedroom home.

How Big is a 40ft Container?

A 40ft container gives you double the space of a 20ft container with little addition in price. It is best for someone with large goods to move.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

A system is created by us for customers with small cargo volumes to share a container. This system is called “Less Than Container Load” (LCL) and it is only ideal for customers with the contents of a one-bedroom apartment.

If your belongings exceed that of a one-bedroom apartment, you will be needing an entire container for your move. A “Full Container Load” (FCL) is the term for it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Space is Required for a Container Delivered to My Home?

Your container will usually be delivered to your home by a truck. A vehicle with roughly 110′ straightaway clearance is required to deliver a 40′ container. You’ll need around 50′ of immediate clearance to transport a 20′ container. Additionally, because containers are 8′ wide, the trailer will want at least 10′ of clearance to drop off your container.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Waterproof transport containers are not always available. Almost all shipping containers are entirely watertight. They’re water-resistant in the sense that they’ll typically keep rain, snow, and precipitation out for the most part. If the containers are submerged or flooded, however, they will leak. The majority of our shipping containers include thick rubber seals around the doors to prevent water or moisture from entering the container. Water may be efficiently stopped by hardening the area around the doors of most containers because they only have one entry.

What Type of Goods Am I Not Permitted to Ship to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines?

It is prohibited to ship the following commodities to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

● Artificial Christmas trees

What Are the Essential Documents Needed When Shipping to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines?

You must produce the following documentation to the Customs Valuation Section for clearance:

● An original invoice from the supplier stating the sale’s terms.
● the name of the supplier.
● the name of the buyer.
● the price that has been paid or will be paid.
● vehicle description in detail (type, model, engine number or VIN number, color, engine size, and weight)
● The original bill of lading from the shipper or carrier.
● If applicable, an insurance certificate.
● the terms of delivery e.g., C.I.F, F.O.B, or C&F
● A Bill of Sight prepared for verification of the information.
● A prepared Customs entry.

What Kind of Taxes, Duties, and/or Fees Do I Have to Pay When Shipping to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines?

In Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, import goods are subject to Sales Tax Known as VAT (Value Added Tax), Excise Tax (A fee imposed by a government on personal or corporate income), and Customs Service Charge.

Duty and sales tax

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Common External Tariff determines the cost, insurance, and freight (CIF) values and rates for customs duties on commodities.
The duty rate of goods ranges from 0% to 70%. However, the average duty rate for goods is 17.45%. Sales tax (15% VAT) is applied on the sum of the CIF value, duty, and all other applicable taxes.

Excise Duty

The rate for excise duty varies and it’s mostly for goods like alcoholic beverages and tobacco products.

Customs Service Charges

This applies to all products and the rate is 5% of CIF value.

What is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading functions as both a freight receipt and a title document. In international transportation, the bill of lading is one of the most crucial documents. It’s utilized to make sure an exporter gets paid while the importer gets their goods.

What Happens if I Lose My Bill of Lading?

Losing your bill of lading is a serious problem. You won’t be able to get another until the original is located and recovered. If the BOL cannot be found or retrieved, the shipper, exporter, or importer must take a number of steps to facilitate transit without it. You should make ready the following documents: a letter from the shipper, a court order, a letter of indemnity, a bank guarantee, a commercial invoice, or a packing list.

What is the Difference Between Freight Forwarders, Freight Brokers, and an NVOCC?

These three terms are sometimes misconstrued, but they should not be used interchangeably. NVOCC’s services are never employed as agents, but rather as service providers. They perform all of the services of a carrier under their bill of lading.

Freight brokers act as go-betweens for shippers and carriers. They can operate in a range of countries, although they typically specialize in a certain location.

Freight forwarders are professionals that handle both personal and commercial goods. However, they are not involved in transportation. They’re also licensed to work in a variety of countries across the world.
