Factors That Affect the Cost of Shipping to Turkmenistan

Some elements influence the cost of shipping items and they are: 

  • The volume and weight of the shipment: If you have ever carried something heavy for a distance you know that weight and volume will influence the cost of any transportation.
  • The choice of transportation: The choice of transportation for your items will influence the cost of shipping, as different methods of transportation have different rates.
  • Distance: The distance the cargo has to travel to get to its destination, will influence the cost of shipping. The farther the distance, the higher the cost.
  • Destination Port: The port the items will arrive at, might influence the cost of shipping as ports are unique in every way including their fees.
  • Peak Period: The general peak shipping period is between August and October but due to the unique position of Turkmenistan, the Chinese New Year gives it a second peak period of January to February. Shipping at any of these times is bound to incur higher costs.

Additional Shipping Costs

Some costs are easy to miss when getting your estimates. These costs are usually not determined by the company and they are:

  • Customs fees: The country of Turkmenistan has a general 2% import duties rate for all items brought into the country. This 2% has to be factored into the shipping cost.
  • Insurance: You need to have a form of cover for your items. This will, of course, come at a premium.    
  • Inspection: If your items are inspected, the cost of shipping might go up. 
  • General Rate Increase (GRI): If the shipping route used to get to the country is a major route, there might be a general rate increase for all items that pass through that route. 
  • Delivery Times: The faster you want items shipped, the higher the cost of shipping.

Considering the reality that many clients don’t need a full container to themselves, there is an option to share a container with other clients. This kind of load is called Less Than Container Load (LCL). The cost is calculated in cubic meters. If your items can fill a container then your load will be in the Full Container Load (FCL) system.  

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

Transportation choice is influenced by many things but most times it is the choice of the client. If you are, however shipping from a far country to another country, you have two options.

The first option is the transportation of cargo by sea. It accounts for more than three-quarters of all international freight transportation and there is a reason for that. Transportation by sea is cost-effective and is suitable for high-volume cargo.  

Freight transportation by air, on the other hand, is suitable for packages that need to arrive at the destination as quickly as possible. It is important to know that the shipping rates are generally higher when shipping by air.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

A freight forwarder is a company that connects transportation companies that import and export products with businesses that require them. From holding products before shipping to guaranteeing that they pass customs, freight forwarders are in charge of all aspects of the transportation process. They do not handle the products directly, but they do establish relationships with businesses. Freight forwarders deal with businesses that ship goods by road, rail, sea, or air.

Brokers act as a middleman in global trade. They make certain that trades are completed in a timely and legal manner. They gather, organize, and manage commercial and trade data in order to expedite the movement of goods across borders and the payment of tariffs and taxes.

A Non-Vessel Owning Common Carrier (NVOCC) is an agency or organization that enables businesses that only need a fraction of the container space offered by freight forwarders to transport their goods. Container filling and delivery to other ports are among the services provided by NVOCC.

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Turkmenistan?

Some of the following are conditional on the object being transported or the places of origin and destination:

● 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

Make sure you have all of the necessary paperwork before shipping a container to Turkmenistan. To find out what documents you’ll need to begin sending your cargo, ask our customer service department.

Can I Track My Container While It Is in Transit?

GPS tracking devices, such as those found in most cars, can be used to track the location of your container.

Meanwhile, some businesses have their own container tracking system in place. This allows them to keep track of the location of their fleet’s ships at all times.

Carriers may also use tracking systems to keep their customers up to date on the status of their cargoes.

You can track the location of your cargo container on their website, or you can be notified by phone or email.

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

When the cargo comes, you don’t need to be present. You can appoint someone to supervise the procedure or do the necessary paperwork on your behalf. However, you should be there when the container is moved so that you may sign the documents firsthand.

If no one is available to accept the container, the shipping crew will leave the container in the most appropriate location and will adhere to the instructions/requests in your delivery agreement.

Why Do FCL and LCL Shipments Have Different Transit Times?

They have different delivery times because of their procedures. In an FCL shipment, the shipper is not required to share the cargo area in the container with the goods of others. The shipping company will simply move the container to its intended destination.

Meanwhile, LCL shipments have a more complicated route and procedure. The container holds cargo from a variety of people and businesses. As a result, it will be emptied and loaded at several ports.

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

In most cases, customs clearance may be completed in as little as 24 hours, however, goods inspection might take days or even weeks.

Are Shipping Containers Waterproof and Properly Ventilated?

Shipping containers are typically not watertight, although they are water-resistant. They can resist the impacts of inclement weather.

Watertight containers are made of materials that do not allow water to enter through. Because they keep water out, watertight containers may also be used to transport liquids.

A waterproof container, on the other hand, is one that has been built with a water-resistant coating. There will be little to no damage if rain falls on the exterior of a waterproof container, for instance. Unfortunately, if rain gets into a waterproof container, the contents will get wet.

Vents are built into the sidewalls of shipping containers to provide ventilation and to keep moisture out. In a 20-foot container, there are two to ten vents, while a 40-foot container has four to twelve vents.

To keep pests and insects out, shipping containers have vents that are about 1 inch (2.5cm) square and protected with mesh.

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

The quantity of unloading space required is determined by the load of your container.

For example, a 20-foot cargo has a useable capacity of 25-28cbm. This is the equivalent of ten or eleven common pallets in terms of storage space. That means if you’re unloading a full cargo container, you’ll need a space that can handle 10 pallets.
