A student preparing the dissertation asked me some help
Who can give an idea of the rates for container (20ft and/or 40ft) shipping
1) Ho Chi Minh
2) Laem Chabang
the rate for the truck transport of a container from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh
Any help would be appreciate
Sorry cannot speak to your specific departure ports but can share with you that for planning purposes we budget $4,500 per container for ocean freight.
That is a safe average for Asia and Central America from east and west coasts USA and China. (We do enjoy the services of a freight agent in USA that handles all booking and documentation – of which there is a lot!)
A 20 foot container costs about same as 40 footer so very seldom use them – Now we typically only book a 40 and fill it out with whatever. Note LTL (Less-Than-Load) such as a given number of palettes can run as much as a full container)
Here in Cambodia we figure about $1,200 for dock and customs fees. Our containers come tax-exempt and have good working relationship with port authorities and customs. Do not know what other fees on top of import tax a commercial venture would encounter.
Average about $400 per container from port to Phnom Pehn. Note – unless your off-load site is on outskirts of PPN you cannot receive a container until after 9 PM.
Previously I shipped windows and furniture from
Europe and paid $3800 total including port fees, taxes, and many fees that were added after the shipping was sent.
Best bet is it to ask prior to shipping
