You might know from ordering parcels online that the size of your order and the distance it has to travel to come to you affects the shipping cost that is added to your purchasing cost. Well, the same principle applies to shipping a container to any part of the world. The size and the distance to travel as important as they are, aren’t the only things to consider when shipping a container to another country. Three Men And A Truck ship items to Sudan and we will help you understand what it all entails.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Sudan

To understand why your shipping will have its cost, some elements cannot be ignored:

  • Distance: Shipping items from Nigeria to Sudan can’t be the same cost as shipping from Mexico. The farther the distance the higher the cost.
  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped: The heavier a thing the harder it is to transport. This is why the weight or volume of cargo affects the cost of shipping.
  • The type of transportation used: There are different types of transportation and these different types have different costs. For example, shipping by air might be more expensive than by road.
  • The destination port: Different countries have different tariffs at their different ports. This can contribute to the cost of shipping.
  • Peak Shipping Season: The peak shipping season in Sudan is normally between August and October. If you decide to ship during this period, prepare for a surcharge. 

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best For Me?

146 sq ft might seem like a strange number for you but it is a measure of the space in a 20ft container. If that doesn’t help, there are other ways to estimate it. Most shipping containers come in 20 or 40ft sizes. A 20ft container can hold all your items if you plan on shipping the contents of your three-bedroom flat. If you have more load than an average three-bedroom can contain, consider getting a 40ft container.

If you are moving your household goods, getting a container to yourself is inevitable. In that case, your load will be called a Full Container Load (FCL). In other situations, you just want to ship a few things. In this case, you won’t be using a container alone. Your things will be put together with other clients’ items. This kind of loading is called Less than Full Container Load (LCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

There are four main types of transportation and they are air, sea, land, and rail. Depending on what you want to ship when you want it to arrive, the landscape of the country, and the cost you are willing to pay, you might pick any of these four options.

In most cases, shipping from another country will involve shipping from air or sea to a port and then taking the shipment inland by land or rail.

Freight transportation by sea is useful for high-volume shipping items. As air transportation, has a stricter weight cap compared to sea transport, it will be better to transport heavy objects by sea. Also, sea transportation is cost-effective.

Freight transportation by air is particularly useful if you want to send time-sensitive items or items that are fragile. Note that generally, air transport is the most expensive method of transportation. 

Additional Shipping Costs

Some costs might be easy to miss when considering the cost. They are:

  • Insurance: When shipping items to another country, insurance is a good idea.
  • Custom fees: Sudan has an average import duty of 20% on items. It can be more or less depending on the exact product being imported. 
  • Inspection: There is a chance that your items will be inspected and that inspection will not be free.
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): If shipping demand for a particular route is high, the shipping rate increases. This is GRI and it can influence the cost of shipping.
  • Delivery Times: You might get your initial estimates but you aren’t satisfied with the delivery time. Requesting quicker delivery times will increase the cost of shipping.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Bill of Lading?

When a shipment is picked up, the shipper gives the carrier a statement called a bill of lading. It contains all important cargo information, such as pickup and delivery addresses, contact information, tare weight, freight class, special instructions, commodity description, freight dimensions, and shipping numbers, among other things.

A bill of lading, which serves as both a receipt and an agreement, is required for every shipment. A BOL that is properly filled out proves that the carrier has received the products as specified and is committed to delivering them to the consignee in pristine condition.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Sudan?

It’s important to note that while most of these documents are common, whether you need all of them will depend on what type of items you are shipping:

● Commercial and Proforma Invoices
● Bills of Lading
● Packing 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

Before shipping a container to Sudan, make sure you have all of the necessary documents. Contact our customer service department or visit the Sudan government website to find out what documents you’ll need to begin shipping your container.

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

You don’t need to be present when your container arrives. You can delegate someone to look into the matter or complete the necessary papers on your account. However, it’s best if you will be there when the container is moved so that you may sign the paperwork admitting receipt of the goods firsthand.

If you don’t have anybody that can take care of that for you, the shipping employees will most likely place it in the most appropriate area and will follow the instructions/requests in your shipping agreement.

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

Customs clearance can usually be completed in as little as 24 hours. However, goods inspection can take several days or even weeks.

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

The amount of unloading space needed is determined by the weight of your container.

A 20-foot cargo, for example, has a usable capacity of 25-28cbm. In terms of storage capacity, this is equivalent to ten or eleven standard pallets. You’ll need a space that can hold 10 pallets if you’re emptying a single cargo container.

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

GPS tracking devices, including those used in most cars, may be utilized to trace your container’s location.

However, many shipping companies already have their own container tracking system. This helps them to keep track of where their fleet’s ships are at all times.

Businesses may also use their shipping tracking systems to keep their consumers informed about the status of their goods. Clients may track the position of their cargo container online, or they can be alerted via phone or email.

Why Do FCL and LCL Shipments Have Different Transit Times?

In an FCL shipment, the shipper is not required to share the container’s cargo space with the items of other people. As a result, the security and efficiency of this maritime freight transportation are improved. It outperforms LCL in terms of delivery time because of this.

Also, LCL shipments have a more difficult route and procedure. A variety of people and businesses are using the cargo space of the container. As a consequence, the container will be unloaded and loaded at different ports.

What’s the Difference Between a Freight Forwarder, a Broker, and an NVOCC?

A freight forwarder is a business that connects transportation companies that import and export goods with businesses that need them. Freight forwarders are in charge of all aspects of the transportation process, from holding products before shipping to ensuring that they clear customs. They do not directly handle the products, but they do build relationships with businesses. Freight forwarders work with companies that transport goods by road, rail, sea, or air.

Brokers operate as a facilitator for international commerce, ensuring that transactions are completed promptly and within the law’s parameters. They collect, organize, and manage commercial and trade data to speed up the flow of products across borders and the payment of tariffs and taxes.

A Non-Vessel Owning Common Carrier (NVOCC) is a specialized agency or corporation that assists companies that only need a fraction of the container capacity provided by freight forwarders to deliver their goods. NVOCC services include container filling and transportation to other ports.

Do I Need Insurance?

Shipping a container to another country is an expensive and complicated process with a lot of variables. If something were to happen to your cargo, you’d be looking at hefty losses. It’s best to insure the contents of it, or the whole container, to avoid any uncomfortable situations.
