HOW MUCH DOES IT COST

Understanding Container Shipping Costs

The cost of Container shipping varies based on several factors. Some of the primary other factors could be size and shipping distance. AES Inc. has streamlined the Container shipping process over the years and offers unmatched solutions to the customers which makes the pricing consistent.
Container Capacity and Type: The price depends on the size of container that you choose for your cargo. Typically smaller containers are cheaper. Again some container types may be cheaper than the others like open top containers.
Distance: Like any other shipment, more distance equates to higher shipping costs. Also, shipping to destinations that are not easily accessible may increase pricing.
Currency: Currency could be a factor to consider when shipping your cargo overseas. The common denomination used for international transaction purposes is the US dollar. Therefore, ocean freight rates would depend on the rate of exchange at the moment of the transaction.
Export: Container shipping may involve customs clearance fees and related charges for both import and export , also additional local handling fees if required.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What people frequently ask us

Typically, the standard SEA WORTH shipping containers have a width of 7ft and 8 inches.

A standard empty 20 foot shipping container weighs between 1.8-2.2 metric tonnes (about 3,970 - 4,850 lb).

Typically, an empty 40 foot shipping container weighs about 3.8 - 4.2 metric tonnes (8,340 - 9,260 lb).

It depends both on the size of the containers as well as the cars. For example, a 40-foot container can fit about four standard-sized vehicles.

Shipping cars in enclosed containers is considered safer, especially vintage cars or the modern supercars as they will be fully protected inside a steel-made container. There is less loading or unloading of other cars like it is in the open carrier because the number of vehicles in the enclosed container is very small. So there is low risk of your car getting scratches or dents while another car beside it is getting unloaded.
