FAQs about shipping your container to Dominican Republic

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

If you’re thinking of shipping a container to Dominican Republic and need to know how long it will take, you first need to decide on your port of origin and destination. Shipping a container to Dominican Republic can take up to 66 days (Mawei, China-Caucedo), whereas the estimated transit time for the route New Orleans – Caucedo is 4 days on average.

How do you figure out shipping cost to Dominican Republic?

Shipping costs are determined by different factors: your cargo’s size and dimensions, the type of container you choose, the applicable Incoterm for your shipping and your chosen port of origin and destination. In addition to this, you should also know that if you’re dealing with sensitive or hazardous goods, you will have to pay the extra costs accordingly.

FOB vs CIF: What´s the difference?

The CIF and FOB Incoterms often create confusion among shippers due to their seemingly subtle difference in commercial terms. The most important difference between CIF and FOB has to do with responsibility for the cargo during the whole shipping process: with CIF, the seller is liable for the goods until they reach the destination port chosen by the buyer; with FOB, on the other hand, the seller passes responsibility onto the buyer once the shipment is loaded on the vessel.

What type of cargo can be sent in a container?

Shippers often find that dry shipping containers meet all of their cargo’s needs: they come in a wide range of sizes and capacities and are suitable for transportation of dry bulk, a common enough type of cargo. These containers are hermetically sealed but don’t offer temperature control or ventilation, so they may not be appropriate for perishable goods.

What container capacity do I need for my cargo?

You’ll be happy to know there is quite a large number of options to choose from among standard dry shipping containers’ capacities and sizes. You can go for the smallest (20ft) with 1,172 CFT / 33.2 CBM volume capacity all the way up to a 45-ft container with 3,122 CFT / 88.4 CBM volume capacity. You should also consider a Shared Container (LCL) if your shipment is low-volume.

What paperwork is needed for international shipments to Dominican Republic?

Every country requires different documents when exporting or importing but there is certain paperwork that you’re sure to have to deal with regardless of the origin or destination of your ocean freight: a Bill of Lading, a commercial invoice or a packing list, to name a few. Other complimentary documents tend to include customs authorization or power of attorney, for example.
