          Ocean Freight Transportation to Nicaragua

          The Republic of Nicaragua is becoming increasingly attractive to exporters. It is Central America’s largest country, with an expanding economy that has posted growth of between four and five percent annually over the past few years. The country has reduced its debt and controlled its formerly high inflation rates. Its population of six million represents a large, developing market. Learn more about the advantages of using ocean freight transportation from the US to Nicaragua as part of your export strategy.

          Clothing, textiles, and agriculture represent the majority of Nicaragua’s exports. There is also a growing mining sector. The country’s capital, Managua, is Central America’s third-largest city, with a population of over two million; it is Nicaragua’s economic center, and many national and multinational businesses operate there. Ocean freight to this inland city can be arranged.

          The US receives about 60 percent of Nicaragua’s exports, and provides 25 percent of its imports. This makes the US Nicaragua’s most important trading partner. Many subsidiaries of US companies also operate in Nicaragua. All of this means that it is well worth your while to explore ocean freight transportation from the US to Nicaragua.

          Full Container (FCL) or Groupage (LCL)

          You may wish to have exclusive use of a container (FCL-a full container load) or to share a container-an arrangement known as groupage (LCL)-when you are shipping a container to Nicaragua.

          What is the volume of your shipment? You’ll require a full container (FCL) if you are shipping six standard pallets or more. A 20-foot container takes a maximum of 10 standard pallets, while a 40-foot container will accommodate 22 standard pallets.

          If you are concerned about the possibility of your merchandise being damaged by contact with other exporters’ goods, then you will also want to choose FCL.

          If that is not a concern, and you are interested in saving on shipping costs, then a shared container load (LCL)-groupage-is for you. Sharing means paying only for the space you use. iContainers can provide you with information on rates and other important details.

          Ocean Freight Routes to Nicaragua

          • Port of Corinto
            The majority of Nicaragua’s exports and imports go through the country’s largest Pacific port, the Port of Corinto. This is Central America’s best-protected port in terms of the elements, and its large terminal is equipped to handle a wide variety of cargo, including bulk and liquid.
          • Port of Managua
            Inland transportation to the inland city of Managua can be arranged for full containers and less than a container.

          Air Freight Transportation to Nicaragua

          In some instances, air freight may be better for your shipping needs than ocean freight, especially if you are on a tight schedule. Air freight does impose some limitations on volume and weight. iContainers provides a calculator to help you determine whether this is the right option for you.
