FAQs about shipping your container to Uruguay

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

The longest transit time to ship a container to Uruguay is the route Long Beach – Montevideo, with an average of 54 days, while the shortest is the Algeciras, Spain – Montevideo route which is 15 days on average. As you can see and have probably already figured, estimated transit time largely depends on the chosen route and the port of origin and destination.

How do you figure out shipping cost to Uruguay?

Coming up with a list of costs your ocean freight is going to entail is not as easy as one may think. There is a long list of factors that determine the final quote: your shipment’s characteristics (size and volume), your selected Incoterm, the port of origin and destination you’ll need transporting to and from and the container you use to do so. Aside from this, you should know special requirements – such as those needed for hazardous cargo, for instance – will probably lead to higher costs.

FOB vs CIF: What´s the difference?

The essential difference between CIF and FOB is mainly related to liability during the shipping process. While the CIF Incoterm states that the selling party is responsible for the goods until they arrive at the destination port designated by the buyer, the FOB agreement specifies liability is held by the seller only until the cargo is loaded and in transit. At this point, the buyer is responsible for the freight.

What type of cargo can be sent in a container?

If your freight doesn’t require specific conditions such as ventilation or refrigeration, dry shipping containers are probably the best choice for you. These standardized and hermetically-sealed containers are used for transportation of dry bulk such as manufactured goods and come in a range of sizes and dimensions, which will ensure you will find the right fit for your cargo.

What container capacity do I need for my cargo?

Standardization of dry shipping containers has led to four different volume capacities being offered to shippers with the lowest being at 1,172 CFT / 33.2 CBM and the highest at 3,122 CFT / 88.4 CBM. This is recommended for large freight, but if you’re dealing with low-volume shipment that won’t require an entire container, you should consider a Shared Container (LCL) and pay only for the space your cargo takes up.

What paperwork is needed for international shipments to Uruguay?

In order to come up with a comprehensive list of the paperwork you will need for your ocean freight, there are a few considerations you should be clear on, since they will determine the sort of document you need: the countries involved in the transaction, the selected Incoterm or the nature of your cargo. Aside from this, you will typically need a Bill of Lading, a commercial invoice or a packing list.
