The general ocean rate includes the base rate and surcharges, but NONE customs clearance and port charges at both sides, duty & taxes may occur, and other miscellaneous charges.

  • Destination agent service fee (i.e. D/O)

For example: How much does it cost to ship a 40′ container to Australia?

It cost rough US$1,000 for shipping 1×40’GP from Qingdao port to Sydney port.

1.2 LCL rates

By the loading port, the destination port, the volume, the weight, the volume/weight ratio.

For example: How much does it cost to ship 10 cartons to Canada?

It cost rough US$65 per cbm for shipping 6cbm light goods from Shanghai port to Vancouver port.

Destination charges vary depending on the destination country, carrier, and delivery agent. Guiding the consignee in the complexity of cargo recovery procedures is the responsibility of the carrier’s destination agent/broker.

for shipping freight, Change Frequency

The international shipping industry, and the freight rates within it, are always volatile.

There are plenty of variables that factor into it, including but not limited to capacity, demand, oil bunkers, market perceptions, seasonal behaviors, labor issues at ports, congestion, disruptions, and strength of economies.

Unless you have a rather large consistent quantity (10 plus containers per month) then you’ll not likely to get a quote for longer than two weeks.

It may vary every week. Sometimes, if your supplier could catch up the earlier route by finishing the production one or two days earlier, you can save quite a bit. The price for 1x40ft container may increase US$1200 in the next week schedule.

US$1200+? Yes, it happened.

So knowing the rough date your shipment ready is essential for requesting the exact quotation.

Generally, ocean FCL rates are generally valid for up to two weeks at a time (expiring on the 15th and 30th of each month). LCL rates may last a bit longer, usually expiring at the end of each month.
