How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Container to Brazil?

The price to ship a container to Brazil can vary widely depending on your freight’s country and port of departure and the distance over which it will be transported.

Price fluctuations are also driven by the demand for capacity, seasonality, and other factors such as the size of the container (20-foot or 40-foot), fuel prices, and carriers’ itineraries and schedules.

The characteristics of your shipment, such as the volume, weight, type of goods, and other considerations will also factor into quotes generated by service providers.

Container Shipping Rates to Brazil

At Interworld Freight, we strive to apply shipping rates to Brazilian ports that are among the cheapest in the industry. While it’s possible to provide a very general idea of shipping rates, though, they fluctuate rapidly and frequently, so we do recommend that you ask us for a quote if you’d like a current and accurate price for your shipment.

At that point we can also help you with shipping decisions such as selecting the ideal container size for your cargo, and with an accurate comparison of cost for shipping your goods in 20-foot containers versus 40-foot containers.

Brazil Container Shipping Services

Container shipping to Brazil is typically a multimodal exercise. After all, you’ll need your shipment moved from its origin to the port of loading, and perhaps from the port of discharge to the final destination. That can amount to a significant requirement for overland transportation.

As a provider of complete container logistics solutions, we make shipping easy for you by integrating ocean freight and road freight services into and across Brazil, so you don’t need to deal with multiple freight forwarders and carriers.


Ocean Freight

For the maritime segments of your shipments, you can choose from full container load (FCL) or less-than-container-load (LCL) ocean freight services.


Road Freight

When you need to get your cargo moved to or from ocean freight terminals and/or consolidation/deconsolidation centers, our road freight services, available in Brazil and overseas, include FTL and LTL freight shipping and container drayage.

Ocean Freight to Brazil

For both commercial shippers and individuals, the primary benefits of ocean freight are of immense value. The following advantages of shipping ocean freight in containers to Brazil are some of the most compelling:

  • The ability to choose either less-than-container-load (LCL) or full-container-load (FCL) services.
  • The possibility to ship a large volume of freight in a single shipment.
  • The relatively low cost of shipping compared with other transportation modes

Perhaps you’re not sure whether you should choose FCL or LCL shipping for your shipment to Brazil. The answer depends mostly on the amount of goods you plan to send as a single shipment.

LCL shipping is most suitable for smaller shipments, comprising less than 15 cubic meters in volume. For quantities larger than that, many shippers find FCL to be the best option, as the flat-rate pricing structure of FCL means lower unit costs for transporting of high freight volumes.
