Factors Affecting the Cost of Shipping

The cost of shipping containers to Ukraine is highly dependent on a number of factors, including the size of the container and the product being shipped, the shipping method, and other considerations such as the type of delivery service (whether door-to-door, port-to-port or drop and fill), where you are shipping from and where you wish to ship to in Ukraine.

Which Size of Shipping Containers Works Best for Me?

Although we have a variety of shipping container sizes, the 20-foot and 40-foot shipping containers are the most popular.

How large is a 20-foot shipping container?

A 20ft shipping container measures 5.9 meters in length, 2.3 meters in width, and 2.3 meters in height, and can store the equivalent of a three-bedroom house.

How big is a 40-foot container?

A 40ft.container has the following dimensions: Length 11.9m x width 2.35m x Height 2.35m. If you need to ship a car as well as furniture to Ukraine, a 40ftcontainer is ideal.

Despite their massive size differences, it’s crucial to note that their pricing differences aren’t quite as large.

Difference Between FCL and LCL

The cargo volume is the main distinction between these two types of container shipping. The whole shipment delivered in a container belongs to one owner in FCL (full container load) shipments, whereas LCL (less than a container load) shipments include goods owned by different parties in one shared container.

For those with less cargo, LCL is a preferable option. And it’s the best option for non-essential stuff that won’t fill the entire container. You just pay for the amount of space your shipment takes up.

For delicate cargo, FCL will be a safer option, and it will have a shorter delivery time, which is ideal for time-sensitive shipments. In addition, FCL is more expensive.

Understanding the Different Types of Freight Transportation

There are two main modes of transportation to choose from: air freight and sea freight.

Air Freight is a quick mode of transportation. Cargo planes can reach Ukraine in three or four days from most places on the planet. Air freight, on the other hand, is pricey; it’s convenient if you need your goods to get there quickly, but it’s not ideal for saving money.

Ukraine has twenty airports in total. Boryspil International Airport, which serves Kyiv, the country’s capital, is its largest airport.

Sea Freight is slower, but it is also significantly more cost-effective, costing about five times less than air freight. If you’re on a tight budget, sea freight is the way to go; just keep in mind that it will take several weeks for your cargo to arrive.

Among all Black Sea countries, Ukraine has the most powerful seaport potential. The ports of Odessa, Ilyichevsk, and Yuzhniy are home to the country’s largest container terminals.

Additional Shipping Cost

  • Value-added tax (In Ukraine, the standard VAT rate is 20%).
  • Insurance
  • Custom duties
  • Inland delivery charges

In Ukraine, not all imported items are subject to VAT. Some items enjoy a 7% VAT rate.

The import duty on a shipment in Ukraine will be 20% if the total value of your items exceeds 22 EUR.
