FAQs about shipping your container to Argentina

What is the estimated transit time for shipping a container to Argentina?

Transit time is estimated based on different factors, one of which is the chosen route and the port of origin and destination. For instance, the Detroit – Buenos Aires route is the longest with an average of 92 days. The shortest transit time to ship a container to Argentina is the route Pt Everglades – Buenos Aires which takes 14 days on average. Containers being shipped from Spain (Algeciras) typically arrive 15 days after departure.

How do you figure out shipping cost to Argentina?

Your shipping costs will invariably be determined by a number of factors: your freight’s characteristics, the kind of container you need, your chosen Incoterm and the route selected for your shipping. In addition, any specific requirement for your goods – as would be the case when transporting sensitive or hazardous goods – is sure to increase costs.

FOB vs CIF: What´s the difference?

CIF and FOB Incoterms are two of the most commonly used commercial terms in ocean freight and yet they tend to generate confusion among exporters and importers. The difference between the two lies mainly with liability for the goods being transported: under CIF, the seller is held liable for the cargo up until it reaches the destination port while with FOB, said liability is only extended until the goods are loaded on the vessel, at which point responsibility is transferred to the buyer.

What type of cargo can be sent in a container?

You will find there is quite a wide range of types of containers to choose from based on the nature of your goods. However, shippers tend to find dry shipping containers suit their needs perfectly. Dry shipping containers are used – as their name suggests – to transport dry bulk, i.e., dry commodities or non-perishable goods. That is, goods that don’t require special conditions such as ventilation or refrigeration.

What container capacity do I need for my cargo?

The wide range of sizes and volumes among dry shipping containers will no doubt allow you to find the perfect fit for your cargo. The smallest (20ft) has a volume capacity of 1,172 CFT / 33.2 CBM, whereas the largest (45ft) can offer up to 3,122 CFT / 88.4 CBM. If your shipment is low-volume, a Shared Container (LCL) may be more budget-friendly and better suited for your freight.

What paperwork is needed for international shipments to Argentina?

Required documents for international shipping can be categorized in two types: the first ones are mandatory in any ocean freight transaction (a Bill of Lading, a commercial invoice or a packing list), whereas the second kind depend on factors such as the countries involved or the nature of the shipment. These may include complimentary forms for hazardous goods or customs authorization, for example.
