Transit time for container shipments varies widely from one route to the next. That is, although Netherlands may be the final destination for your international shipping, it’s impossible to estimate the time it will take to arrive until you have defined a port of origin and destination.
Shipping rates to Netherlands are determined by a number of factors. Aside from the chosen port of origin and destination, they will also depend on the type of container you need, your cargo’s dimensions or the Incoterm to be applied.
CIF and FOB are frequently used Incoterms that define who is liable for the goods and who is in charge of costs during an international commercial transaction. Under CIF, sellers are responsible for both the cargo and the costs associated to it until it reaches the destination port. With FOB, this is only so until the goods are loaded on the vessel.
As far as dry cargo is concerned, shippers tend to find in standard dry shipping containers the best option for their freight. They come in several dimensions and capacities but are not refrigerated or ventilated, which is why they’re not suitable for perishable or sensitive cargo.
Standard containers can be found in several dimensions ranging from 20ft and 1,172 CFT / 33.2 CBM volume capacity up to 45ft and 3,122 CFT / 88.4 CBM. If your cargo is low volume, however, you may want to consider a shared container (LCL).
Shipping documents aren’t mandated solely by the countries involved in the transaction. Other factors that weigh in on the required paperwork are the type of cargo being shipped or the selected Incoterm, for instance. Regardless of this, you will find any standard shipping procedure will require a commercial invoice, a packing list and a Bill of Lading, for instance.
