FAQs about shipping your container to Chile

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

Estimated transit time to Chile is determined by a number of factors such as distance between the port of origin and the destination port. Therefore, a container being shipped from Vigo (Spain) to Valparaiso (Chile) – the longest route – will take 50 days on average. However, the route Charleston – Valparaiso is the shortest with an average of 27 days.

How do you figure out shipping cost to Chile?

Your freight shipping quote will largely depend on the kind of goods you will need transporting but there are other factors you should take into account when calculating your shipping costs: the container you choose, your cargo’s dimensions, the selected Incoterm and the transit time. In addition, if you’re dealing with sensitive freight such as hazardous goods, the final price is likely to increase

FOB vs CIF: What´s the difference?

Differences between FOB and CIF Incoterms can seem subtle and thus lead to confusion but they are, in fact, rather crucial. CIF states that sellers are held liable for the freight during the whole shipping process up until it reaches the destination port chosen by the buyer. According to FOB, sellers are only held accountable for the shipment until it is loaded on the vessel.

What type of cargo can be sent in a container?

Whenever you’re thinking of transporting dry goods, standard dry shipping containers are probably the way to go. These containers have been standardized in order to offer different sizes and capacities for non-perishable cargo such as manufactured goods but are not suitable for shipments that include sensitive materials since, although hermetically sealed, they can’t adapt to special requirements such as ventilation or refrigeration.

What container capacity do I need for my cargo?

When searching for a container that will fit your cargo’s dimensions, you’ll find there is quite a wide range of sizes to choose from. Dry shipping containers come in volumes as low as 1,172 CFT / 33.2 CBM (20ft) and as high as 3,122 CFT / 88.4 CBM (45ft). However, if you’re dealing with lower-volume freight, you may want to consider LCL, a shipping method through which shippers share a container and pay only for the space their cargo takes up.

What paperwork is needed for international shipments to Chile?

Coming up with a comprehensive list of shipping documents required for any international shipment is tricky. This is because there are invariably certain documents that are determined by specific countries or required according to the type of goods being transported. However, compulsory paperwork for ocean freight includes a Bill of Lading, a commercial invoice or a packing list, to name a few.
