There are a variety of companies in the United States that can help you relocate to Senegal. Are they, however, capable and reliable at each stage of the process?

Three Men And A Truck is a full-service company that can assist you with everything from consultation to packing, loading, unloading, container supplies, relocation, and placement at your desired location.

What Are the Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping?

To avoid a high payment, in the end, it is vital to manage costs. Through thorough analysis and ongoing consultation with our skilled team, these can be readily accomplished.

Some general factors can be:

  • The weight of the cargo can influence the container size selection. These can range in size from 20′ to 20′ cube, 40′ to 40′ cube, flat-racked, and so on. Blood, non-prescription medications, furs, jewelry, blades (excluding cutlery), perfume, valuable metals, precious stones, seeds, and other items that must be licensed before being imported are all prohibited by the Senegalese government.
  • The 5,140-mile distance between the United States and Senegal will have an impact on the cost of fuel per mile. To further shorten the distance between Kaolack, Ziguinchor, and Saint-Louis, you should try using alternative international ports.
  • August to October is the busiest time for relocating to the United States. As a result of the increased demand, most businesses encounter shortages, which increase costs.

What Size of Container MeetsYour Requirements?

The type of the goods will also influence the container you select. Our varied range will help you to make an informed decision.

Some of them are:

  • Dry freight containers/Dry storage containers;
  • Swap body containers/Swap bodies;
  • Cargo storage roll containers;
  • Intermediate bulk shift containers (IBC);
  • Drum containers/cylindrical containers.

Others based on ownership are:

  • Individuals who demand exclusive space for their cargo choose Full Container Load (FCL). Your containers arrive on schedule since they are solely occupied. These are more expensive, starting at 1564.78 $ when imported from Miami to Dakar, for example.
  • LCL stands for “Less Than a Container Load” and refers to multiple ownership. You have significant cost-cutting capabilities and are charged per cubic meter of the container. However, you will have to wait for the other occupants to finish their loading, which may cause a delay.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

If the shipping firm has a tracking system, the current position of the container may be checked at any time. To trace a container’s whereabouts, you’ll need the tracking number (container number/Bill of lading/Booking number) and the shipping line. To find out where your cargo is or what its status is, enter both of these details into a package tracking website.

A tracking number is a unique identification or code for a product or shipment. The tracking number is usually printed as a barcode on the shipping label, which anybody with a bar code reader or smartphone may scan.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Although cargo containers are usually water-resistant, they are not necessarily watertight. It ensures that they will be able to resist any type of weather. If the containers are swamped or flooded, the contents will be wet.

Vents are common in shipping containers. They can be seen on the sidewalls or roof of the container. Vents are used to offer ventilation while also avoiding the accumulation of moisture. These container vents are small, averaging around 1-2 inches in diameter, and have mesh to keep insects and rodents out during the course.

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

Every country has its own set of export and import limitations and prohibitions.

You must first visit Senegal’s official website before you pack your items in a container. By packaging items in this manner, you will save time and money by avoiding delays and increased shipping costs.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

A bill of lading is a document of the traded commodities carried on board in the maritime business. These documents are delivered to the shipper by the logistics company (carrier).

It’s simply a transportation contract that connects a shipper and a shipping company.

The carrier who will convey the goods to their end location, as well as the terms under which the shipment will be delivered, are specified in a bill of lading. Bills of lading can be transported by land, sea, or air.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Senegal?

You must follow government laws and regulations in order to clear customs. Also, double-check if you have all of the necessary import paperwork.

For an efficient import and export procedure, having what papers to prepare is crucial. Some of the most common documents required for international container shipping are as follows:

● Commercial and Proforma Invoices
● Bills of Lading
● Packing List or inventory list
● Shipper’s Letter of Instructions (SLI)
● Automated Export System (AES) Filing
● Certificate of Origin (CO)
● Incoterms
● Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
● Operational Instructions
● Shipping Under a Letter of Credit

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

It will be difficult for you to retrieve your container. The Bill of Lading serves as a receipt and establishes your ownership of the goods.

The bulk of shipping firms go to considerable lengths to prevent losing money as a result of misplaced Bills of Ladings. As a result, bank guarantees and indemnifications are required.

How Long Does It Take for Cargo to Clear Customs in Senegal?

It generally takes less than 24 hours to clear customs. However, this timetable is subject to Senegal legislation. Additionally, if part of the required paperwork is missing, it may take days or weeks for your container to cross customs.

The supplier’s commercial invoice and the freight bill, the certificate of origin issued by the Chamber of Commerce of the country of origin, and the packing list are some of the documents you need to get customs clearance.

What’s the Difference between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Both duties and taxes generate revenue for governments. This money is used to fund government-funded social and developmental programs for education, health, and security.

Customs imposes shipping duties on cross-border goods to help the government generate revenue and protect local industries.

An import tax is a fee imposed by a country’s or supranational union’s government on goods imports and exports. In addition to being a source of revenue for the government, shipping taxes are a type of international trade regulation and policy that levies imported products to encourage or safeguard domestic business.
