our clients ship with 20ft. or 40ft. container with orders
worth approximately US$ 5,000.00 to US$ 10,000.00 and US$ 12,000.00
to US$ 20,000.00 respectively -- sometimes even smaller for
orders worth US$ 2,000.00 to US$ 5,000.00.
clients understand that there are great savings in freight costs
if they using container to ship, while there are still some clients
who repeatedly order by LCL (less than a container load). We want
to make our clients aware, that they can waste lots of money by
shipping their merchandise due lack of information or lack of sufficient
funds to order larger quantities.
ways to ship your cargo from here to you
Container (30 cubic meters)
2. 40ft. Container (60 cubic meters)
3. 40ft. High Cube Container (72 cubic meters)
4. LCL Sea Cargo (less than a container - charged per cubic meter)
5. Air Cargo
& Full Containers
basically the most expensive way to ship your merchandise from here
to your place. Cargo companies are not very happy to deal with loose
crates and charge for this pleasure a fortune.
your merchandise is properly packed and official government documentation
is completed the shipment then is gonna be trucked to the port of
Surabaya, East Java (which is the closest international shipping
port to Bali.) In case your LCL shipment is just a few wooden
crates and doesn't fill a container, then it must wait at the port
while the cargo company "consolidates" your order with other small
orders going in the same direction. (Specifically, that means your
crates are on hold while the shipping company waits for enough orders
to combine with yours and fill a container. The usual waiting time
is 2 to 4 weeks.
top of this LCL is much more expensive per cubic meter than a container!
major disadvantage is : in a sealed 20' or 40' container, you get
the full use of the cubic meters inside that container -- with LCL
wooden crates you lose about 25% of the useable space due to the
wood crate and lack of flexibility when packing large products,
means you're actually paying 25% more for lost space.
but not least transit time is usually double that of a sealed container
-- for example, a container to the US west coast takes about 30
days, while an LCL order to the same place more likely will take
up to 45 to 60 days.
think about this, here an example:
to Seattle, CA, USA
- US$ 162.00 per cubic meter -- so if you shipped 10 cubic meters
(maybe $2,000.00 of products), you would pay about US$ 1,620.00.
20ft. container (30 cubic meters including all the related trucking,
handling, documentation & miscellaneous charges) to the Seattle
port is $3,200.60 (or about $106.80 per cubic meter). Compared to
30 cubic meters via LCL ($4,860.00), that's a savings of about $1,660.00
-- about 30% less.
we can say, as larger the container as higher your savings. Count
advantage of using container is that we not have to use wooden crates
which needs more space and are higher charged than cardboard boxes
which we usually use to pack any goods. Fragile goods are
of course better of in wooden crates.
by container means also are better schedule for your merchandise.
We can pre-plan with the Cargo company on which ship the container
will be on. Practically no chance for delays. Containers going to
the US get there in 30 days or less; to Europe it needs usually
3 to 4 weeks. Our advise, plan your order as good as possible
and you will get the best deal for your money. By any means,
a half filled container is cheaper than shipping by LCL.
the fastest way to ship, but also the most expensive one.
clients believe that air cargo is charged by the kilogram,
but it not goes that way. Airlines, in fact, do charge by
the kilo, but in addition, also by volume, whichever happens to
be greatest. A standard carton box is 50 x 58 x 33 cm (20
x 23 x 13 inches). According to the airlines calculation , that
carton's volume is equal to about 15 kilos (33 pounds). If there
is less than 15 kilos of product in that carton box, then you still
will pay for 15 kilos. If there is more than 15 kilos, you pay the
say the air cargo rate for you is about $3.00 per kilo which means
that carton costs you in cargo expense at least $45.00. In some
cases you will have paid more for the cargo than you paid us for
general we say that small products with high retail value work fine
to ship by air. And in most cases it is always time which matters
for our clients. Receive your goods in 5 days in Seattle, CA, USA
instead of 30 days by container or worse…
