How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Container To Slovenia?

The cost of shipping to another country, like Slovenia, might be in the range of $2000 to $3000. There’s no way to predict your total cost because there are so many options to choose from.

To give you an idea about it, here are the options in shipping that could affect your total expenses:

  • Type of transportation: Transporting your goods via land and sea freight is less expensive than shipping them by air freight.
  • Cargo size and weight: There are many sizes of containers. Your choice of size would affect your total shipping cost.
  • Time of shipping: Moving a container during the peak season is often more expensive than usual.

The peak season in the shipping industry differs in each country. In Slovenia, the busiest period happens from June to September. It’s more likely that the ports are active during these months, the shipping rates could be higher than usual.

Other factors that would affect your shipping cost may include the following:

  • Insurance
  • Packing
  • Inspections
  • General Rate Increase
  • Storage

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

There are many container sizes. However, the 20-foot container is already enough for most as it can hold everything in your living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom.

If you’re moving the contents of a larger house, then choose the 40-foot container. It has enough storage space even for the equipment or office supplies of a micro or small business.

In case you are saving money, note that you are not required to pay for the entire container. There are two types of shipment: FCL (Full Container Load) and LCL (Less Than Container Load).

In FCL, you will pay for the entire container. Whether it’s full or not, the moving company will ship it on its schedule.

If you choose LCL, you will share the container’s storage and fee with another person or business. This option is economical but complicated at times.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

Shipping companies move cargo through air, land, and sea freight. If you are shipping from the United States, your only option is through air and sea freight.

Land freight is not an option because it’s only limited to places that are accessible by roads or railways.

In case you need to transport the container quickly, air freight is the best choice. It would just take a few days to move your cargo, but it would be quite expensive. Air freight is the most expensive option for moving a container to another country.

Meanwhile, if you want to save money, sea freight is the cheapest solution. However, keep in mind that this kind of transport is slower than air freight. It’s possible that your belongings will arrive at their destination after a few days or weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Bill of Lading?

One of the most important documents in international shipping is the bill of lading. A bill of lading serves as a freight receipt as well as a title document. This document is significant in that it is required to be submitted to customs officers by movers. It’s also used to ensure that an exporter is paid and that an importer receives their goods without delay.

What Happens if I Lose My Bill of Lading?

To begin with, losing your bill of lading is a major blunder because shipping your goods without it is extremely stressful. This is because you won’t be able to get another until the original is located and recovered. If the BOL cannot be located or retrieved, the shipper, exporter, or importer must take several steps to ensure smooth transit. You should prepare the following documents: a shipping letter, a court order, an indemnity letter, a bank guarantee, a commercial invoice, or a packing list.

What Type of Goods Am I Not Permitted to Ship to Slovenia?

There are various forbidden and restricted commodities that you cannot ship to Slovenia. Shipping of fresh food, plants and seeds, bioproducts, chemicals, radioactive substances, alcohol, animals, cash, drugs, explosives, and guns are all illegal in Slovenia.

Furthermore, because Slovenia’s list of prohibited items changes frequently, it’s critical to verify the country’s customs page before shipping any type of item.

While we do not send prohibited goods to Slovenia, we may be able to ship restricted items if you have been given permission to do so and have provided us with the necessary documentation.

What Customs Taxes, Duties, and/or Fees Do I Have to Pay When Shipping to Slovenia?

Except for certain textile, agricultural, and wood items, imports to Slovenia are mainly unrestricted. Raw materials are subject to a 0–5% duty, semi-finished items to a 5–10% duty, and equipment to an 8–15% duty, while finished goods or consumer goods are subject to a 15–27% duty.

Many import duties have been eliminated, and more deregulation is on the horizon.  A sales tax and a customs clearance fee, however, remain in effect.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Yes, there are waterproof shipping containers. Nonetheless, most shipping containers are rather watertight. Watertight containers are used because they are equally advantageous and prevent rain, snow, and precipitation.

In the same way, we use well-ventilated cargo containers. The existence of vents on the superior parts of our containers’ sidewalls enables this function.

As a result, keeping the containers clean and free of moisture and dirt when they’re in wet or adverse environments will help them last longer.

What is the Maximum Weight That Can Be Loaded into a Container?

Shipping containers come in two categories. These are the 20-foot and 40-foot containers

Each of them has a maximum weight that they cannot exceed.

The tare weight of a 20-foot container with a volume of 33.2 cubic meters is usually around 2,170 kilograms. Its gross weight is around 67,200 pounds.

A 40 ft container with a volume of 67.7 cubic meters, on the other hand, usually has a tare weight of around 3,750kg. Nonetheless, it has a gross weight of 67,200 pounds, which is the same as a 20-foot container. As a result, select a container that can handle the weight of your items.

What Are the Essential Documents Needed When Shipping to Slovenia?

There are a few documents you’ll need to provide before the shipping day for shipping to Slovenia to be possible. Slovenian customs demand the submission of important documents such as the CMR, Insurance Certificate, Bill of Lading, Customs Declaration, Commercial Invoice/Packing List, Tax Documents/Shipping Labels, and Certificate of Origin (CO). As a result, you must supply these documents so that we can assist you in shipping your items without delay.

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

A truck will normally transport your container to your residence. To deliver a 40′ container, you’ll need a vehicle with about 110′ straightaway clearance. To deliver a 20′ container, you’ll need about 50′ of immediate clearance. Furthermore, because containers are 8 feet wide, the truck will need to have at least 10 feet of clearance to drop off your container.

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

These three terms are frequently misunderstood, but they should not be used interchangeably. Professionals who handle both personal and business products are known as freight forwarders. They are not, however, involved in the transportation of the goods. They’re also authorized to work in several other countries across the world.

NVOCC’s services are always used as service providers, not as agents. Under their bill of lading, they perform all of the functions of a carrier.

Shippers and carriers use freight brokers as middlemen. They can work in a variety of nations, but they usually specialize in one.
