You want to ship items to another country and you have no idea what the cost will look like or what will affect it. For a start, the size of the shipment and the distance to the destination will affect the cost of shipping. There are other things to consider but know that Three Men And A Truck ships items to Tajikistan. Now let us explain the factors that influence the cost of shipping.  

Factors That Affect the Cost Of Shipping To Tajikistan

As mentioned, the following are the factors that affect the cost of shipping. They are:

  • The volume and weight of the items to be shipped: Volume and weight will affect the cost of shipping. These two are directly proportional to the shipping cost. This means an increase in either will cause an increase in the cost.
  • The type of transportation used: Riding a bicycle and driving the car isn’t the same. This applies to shipping as well. The type of transportation selected will affect the cost of shipping. 
  • Distance: How far the cargo has to travel will affect the cost of shipping. 
  • The destination port: Ports don’t have uniform tariffs in most cases, so this can affect the cost of shipping.
  • Peak Shipping Season: The peak shipping period in Tajikistan is between January and February because of the Chinese New Year. If you ship your items during this time of the year, you might pay higher rates.

Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

If you plan on moving all you own, and all of it is in a three-bedroom flat or smaller, you can use a 20ft container. If you need to move more, like a five-bedroom mansion or two cars, you should use a 40ft container.  

If a client’s items fill a container, the load is called a Full Container Load (FCL). If the cargo doesn’t fill a container, it is called Less Than Container Load (LCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

The type of transportation used is dependent on many factors, including the presence or absence of a seaport. In the case of Tajikistan, there is no actual seaport as it is landlocked. Therefore, land transportation is inevitable for all items shipped by sea. This is because the cargo will be dropped at a neighboring country’s seaport and then transported into the destination country by land. This affects the balance of cost because the high demand for land transportation can make it very expensive. 

If you are moving very large cargo, there is little option. Sea freight transportation is the best choice. Note that the cost of transportation by sea might include fees for transporting the cargo into the country by land.

Air transportation isn’t affected by the country being landlocked and operations are similar to any other country. This method of transportation is suitable for time-sensitive items. It is also good for temperature-sensitive items or other fragile items. It might be more expensive than other means of transportation. This is important to keep in mind. 

Additional Shipping Costs

Some costs aren’t directly from the moving company. They are termed additional costs and they are:

  • General Rate Increase (GRI). With increased shipping to the area, shipping rates may increase.
  • Custom fees. Tariffs in Tajikistan range from 0-15% and the average cost is 7.5%. All these tariffs are percentages of the value of the goods and that will add to the shipping costs.    
  • Inspection. If your goods are inspected by the officers at the port, extra costs might be incurred.  
  • Desired delivery time. Sometimes you need your items to arrive as quickly as possible. In that instance, you might have to pay an extra premium for quick shipping.
  • Insurance. Your cargo might need insurance and that will add to the total cost of shipping.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Imports of some commodities may be prohibited for reasons of national security; protection of public order, morality, or health; protection of animals and plants or the environment; protection of art, historical and archaeological values of Tajikistan and foreign countries; protection of property, including intellectual property; and protection of interests of national consumers and other lawful interests of Tajikistan. Such items include alcoholic beverages, narcotics, psychotropic drugs, radioactive materials, seeds, medicinal plants, items of cultural value that require the permission of the Ministry of Culture, chemicals, cosmetics, arms, ammunition, and explosives.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Tajikistan?

A customs inspector will begin clearing goods by creating a file containing the following documents, which the importer should have ready: Copy of the importer’s certificate of registration to confirm that it is a legal entity; Copy of the taxpayer identification number (the original must be shown during each phase of the clearance process); Copy of the charter (usually not required, but should be ready if requested); Copy of incorporation documents (usually not required, but should be ready if requested; if equipment from manufacturing plants is being imported as chartered capital, a registered charter and legal statement from the Ministry of Justice should be included); Copy of the certificate of registration with the State Statistics Committee (customs agents may request to see the original during each clearance procedure).

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

If you lose your bill of lading, a new one can’t just be issued. There are steps, however, that can be taken to make it possible for the carrier to deliver the goods without the bill of lading. The steps include a letter written by the shipper consisting of the details surrounding the loss of the bill of lading. Next will be another letter, this time, a letter of indemnity, indemnifying the carrier from any liability that may arise from delivering the goods without a bill of lading. Some carriers will insist on a bank guarantee in addition to the letter of indemnification.

Do FCL Shipments Have Quicker Transit Times?

Yes, in most cases FCL shipments have quicker transit times than LCL shipments. This is because FCL shipments head to a single destination, and have a single set of documents attached to the cargo. The items also don’t have to be repackaged and the container is delivered as a single parcel to the receiver. An LCL shipment, on the other hand, has many sets of documents that custom officers have to examine and when they get to the destination country, they have to be repacked into smaller packages and sent to the various clients that are to receive the items. This adds to the time required for delivery.

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

Tajikistan’s tariff rates range between zero and fifteen percent, with the overall trade-weighted import tariff averaging out to around seven percent.  The world’s forty-five least developed countries are exempt from import tariffs.  The Tajik Customs Code generally complies with WTO requirements on evaluation and rates and Agreement on Rules of Goods Transit.  The main difference is in the evaluation methods of goods for customs purposes.

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

Shipping taxes are bills imposed on all business transactions related to shipping. This affects both importation and exportation. This is done to increase a countries revenue. Shipping duties are taxes placed on specific items to regulate their influx and prevent importation from drowning the domestic market. Shipping duties vary from product to product.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Yes, modern shipping containers are made waterproof with seals that keep out water so cargo can be safely transported by sea. They are also properly ventilated so livestock and other animals can be transported in containers. However, certain containers are made for specific purposes and might not have vents for ventilation. It is advisable to inspect the container if you plan on transporting animals or plants.

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

A freight forwarder is a company or firm that handles the documentation and logistics monitoring of cargo on behalf of a shipper while a None-Vessel Owning Common Carrier is a firm that offers full carrier services to shippers without owning or operating a ship. NVOCC can issue bills of lading in their name while freight forwarders have to use the bills of lading of a carrier.

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

Yes, you can track your container while it is in transit. GPS trackers are usually used for this service. This will give you immediate feedback on the progress of your cargo to the intended destination.
