Release time:2024-01-17

1. Ocean freight booking fee
The ocean freight booking fee is the most important part of the FCL shipping cost and also the largest part of the cost. It refers to the cost of shipping space for goods from the origin port to the destination port. The calculation of full container space fee is usually based on the type of container, such as the space for a 20GP or 40 HQ. The cost of ocean freight booking fee depends on the shipping company and the distance of the route. Moreover, the full container booking fee is usually determined by shipping companies based on industry standards and market prices, and the price varies at different times.

2. Customs declaration fee
Customs declaration fees refer to the service fees and advance fees declared by the shipper to the customs through a freight forwarder or customs broker. The customs broker or freight forwarder will request various documents and materials for import and export declaration from the consignor, such as import and export licenses, certification documents, product lists, etc., and prepare the necessary documents to declare to the customs, so that the consignor's goods can be cleared for import and export normally.
3. Terminal operation fee
Terminal operating costs refer to the fees that need to be paid for goods during loading and unloading at the port. This includes port usage fees, dock operation fees, and wages for loading and unloading workers. Terminal fees are usually collected by port management agencies or terminal operators, and the amount of fees depends on the quantity of goods and the complexity of loading and unloading operations.
4. Port fees
Port fees refer to the fees that goods need to pay during their stay at the port. This includes parking fees, anchorage fees, barge fees, etc. The calculation of port fees is usually determined based on the weight of the goods or the length of stay. The cost standards for different ports may vary, so when choosing a port, it is necessary to consider the factors of port costs.
5. Insurance costs
Insurance cost refers to the cost required to purchase marine transportation insurance for the goods. During sea transportation, goods may face various risks, such as maritime accidents, cargo damage, and loss. In order to protect the safety of goods and reduce potential losses, shippers usually purchase marine transportation insurance. The amount of insurance premium depends on factors such as the value of the goods, risk level, and insurance amount.
6. Data costs
The process of FCL shipping also involves the production of various documents and certificates, as well as handling fees. This includes bill of loading fees, manifest fees, proof of origin fees, commercial invoice fees, etc. The production and handling fees for these materials and certificates are usually charged by shipping agents or logistics companies, and the amount of fees depends on the number and complexity of the documents.
7. Door to door expenses
For example, cross-border e-commerce requires the delivery of full container loads to Amazon FBA warehouses, third-party overseas warehouses, commercial addresses, etc. The cost of towing from the port to the destination also needs to be calculated. There is also a cost for customs clearance and tax payment, which cross-border sellers need to bear themselves. Even if the full container is taxed to the door, the cost will be calculated in the shipping cost.
8. Other expenses
If it is the ocean freight FCL in the United States, there will be Counter Terrorism List (AMS) fees, destination port clearance fees, taxes, etc., depending on the trade terms. Some ocean freight FCL costs already include customs declaration fees, clearance fees, and tariffs, such as DDP terms; Some are not included and require the consignee to pay separately, such as DDU, FOB, etc.
