How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Container to the State of Palestine?

A number of factors affect the total shipping cost. But usually, you will spend around $2000 to $3000 to move a container abroad.

That cost could either go up or down depending on how you ship your container.

The way you ship your container heavily affects the shipping cost. For example, let’s pretend you choose to send your goods using sea freight. Even if your container is holding heavy items, you are more likely to won’t spend a lot.

In sea freight, moving companies are calculating your shipping cost based on the dimensions or size of your cargo.

Also, try to avoid moving the container during the peak season. The busiest time in the State of Palestine is from March to May and September to November. Expect some delays or an increase in the shipping fee if you transfer your cargo during certain months.

Aside from that, the following factors may have an impact on your overall delivery cost:

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

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

You will have plenty of options. However, a 20ft or 40ft container is already suitable for transferring household or commercial stuff.

A 20ft container can carry 20 pallets or the contents of an average-sized house in its storage area. The 40th container will double that capacity, but that does not imply an increase in price.

The cost of using those containers depends on your mode of shipment.

There are two modes of shipment:

  • FCL (Full Container Load): In this type of shipment, the sender pays for an entire container to transport the cargo. Since the container only holds your things, this option is considerably easier for both the sender and the delivery business.
  • LCL (Less Than Container Load): This type of shipment is a cheaper option because your cargo will most likely be delivered in the same container as someone else’s. LCL shipping is an excellent choice for moving smaller products or shipping on a tight budget, although logistics can be complicated sometimes.

Different Types of Freight Transportation

You can ship your container through land, air, or sea.

Land freight is the cheapest option, and it would only take a matter of days before your container reaches its destination. However, this option is not available if you are shipping a container to places that are not accessible through land, like the State of Palestine.

So, if you’re going to ship 20ft and 40ft containers to the State of Palestine, sea freight is the best mode of shipping. Since it is less expensive than air freight, you may transport your things to The State of Palestine without worrying about the cost of shipping.

Transporting a container by air freight is also an option, but keep in mind that it’s costly. If your cargo exceeds the weight limit, you will almost certainly have to pay a higher shipping cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Containers come in two common sizes. If a 20ft container is going to be delivered to your home, you should make the barest minimum space of 40ft in length, 15feet in width, and 10ft in height. For a 40ft container, a space of 60ft in length, 15ft in width, and 10ft in height is enough. If you can’t provide sufficient space for delivery to your home, consider container storage options near you. Contact Three Men And A Truck if you require storage assistance.  

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to Palestine State?

The Palestinian Authority has no published list of prohibited or restricted imports. Due to the unique political landscape of the area, the absence of a published list doesn’t guarantee the absence of contrabands. Also, there might be restrictions on certain cargo by neighboring countries. Importers should, therefore, check with local Palestinian distributors to see if restrictions apply in certain cases (e.g., food products, firearms, etc.).

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

In accordance with duty-free arrangements between the United States and the Palestinian Authority (PA), the PA does not impose tariffs on U.S. products. For items coming in from other countries, tariffs are ad valorem (proportionate to the value of the goods) and consequently, are calculated as a percentage that includes cost, insurance, and freight (CIF). Specific duties are common in the agricultural sector, particularly on meat, fruit, nuts, and animal or vegetable fats and oils. Tariffs can be combined (ad valorem plus specific). The total tariff is the sum of an ad valorem and a specific tariff. Combined tariffs apply mostly to textiles and textile articles, beverages and spirits, some electrical machinery, fish and crustaceans, edible vegetables, and prepared cereals.

Will My LCL Shipment Have the same Transit Time as an FCL Shipment?

The answer is no, in most cases. LCL shipments are shipments formed by aggregating items from various clients into single shipping containers. So, a single container can have cargo from various clients. This means that clearance of these items will be done on a per-client basis which will be time-consuming. Also, these items will head to different destinations. An FCL shipment is one in which all items in a single container belong to a single client. The documentation is for a single client and the container is headed to a single destination. This type of shipment clears quicker at customs and gets to the destination faster.

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

The maximum weight a 20ft container can contain is 44,000 lbs. This is for an ISO-sized container. For a 40ft container, the maximum permitted weight is 44,500lbs. but there are 40ft containers that can take 67,000lbs. However, certain containers are built for certain purposes, therefore, creating variation in the maximum weight. It is advisable to check the tags on the doors of containers for their actual maximum carrying capacities.

How Important Is It to Get Insurance for My Cargo?

It is important to get insurance for your cargo when shipping to another country. Many things can go wrong in transporting your cargo from one country to another. It travels a far distance and might change hands many times. In the process, it can suffer damage, loss, or even abandonment. In most cases paying for proper coverage of your cargo is cheaper than replacing lost or damaged cargo.

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

Yes, you can track your container while in transit. Shipping companies advise that you do so as it encourages transparency in the business. Tracking is a service that is very common in recent times and is expected by clients. Tracking is usually done electronically via a website or an app. A tracking number assigned to the cargo can be used to know the current location of the shipment.

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

It depends on the terms and conditions of the container-providing company. It is advised that you be there when the container is being delivered so you can check the container yourself and see if it meets your needs. It is important also because certain location issue permits for keeping containers in neighborhoods. Thirdly, there is the advantage of space management. Accommodating a shipping container might involve moving your car out of the driveway or reorganizing your backyard.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

It is a detailed list of a ship’s cargo in the form of a receipt given by the master of the ship to the shipper (person consigning the goods).
