Actual calculation of sea freight of titanium dioxide per ton
International shipping is a common mode of transportation for foreign trade. It should be noted that the shipping cost is calculated in cubic meters, not per ton. Since the shipping price keeps changing, it is impossible to give a definite price.
The calculation method of international shipping freight is divided into containers and bulk cargo. Containers are divided into FCL and LCL. FCL is divided into 20-foot container, 40-foot container, and 20-foot high container. Bulk cargo is different. There are coastal and inland shipping costs are not the same.
1. Calculation of LCL fees
LCL freight calculation only needs to use the “W/M” method, W means weight ton, according to the gross weight of the product 1000kg = 1 weight ton; M means size ton, 1 cubic meter = 1 size ton. The “W/M” method is to choose the largest charge in the weight ton and the size ton.
2. Calculation of FCL freight
FCL container freight calculation, one is the same as LCL, calculated according to the actual weight ton, the other is according to the type of container
When a container is shipped as a full container and the container is owned by the shipping company, the carrier calculates the ocean freight with the provisions of “minimum utilization rate of container” and “maximum utilization rate of container”.
3. Calculation of shipping costs for lost containers
When the weight ton or volume ton of the goods loaded in the container does not meet the minimum standard and the container is not fully utilized, the owner needs to pay the freight for the lost container, and the owner needs to make up the difference between the specified minimum billable ton and the actual number of loaded goods.
Generally, the greater the quantity of goods ordered, the cheaper the TiO2 freight per ton, and the smaller the quantity of titanium dioxide ordered, the more expensive the freight per ton is. This is true regardless of sea freight or land freight.
When it comes to sea freight, sea freight is generally divided into two types. One is the sea freight asked by the buyer, which is FOB. The buyer should contact him himself. The shipping agent will communicate the TiO2 freight quotation directly with the buyer. This method requires the buyer to deliver the goods. The port informs the supplier and the supplier ships according to the designated location.
The other method is for the supplier to contact the TiO2 freight forwarder to inquire about the freight, which is CIF. This method is the most convenient and worry-free for the buyer. Our supplier will directly contact the professional logistics company we cooperate with to deliver the goods directly to your country. The port will purchase cargo insurance for you and send you all customs clearance information. You only need to pick up the goods at the port.
It is also a full container. The freight per ton of titanium dioxide is cheap, while the freight per ton for bulk cargo is relatively expensive.
