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

The price to ship a container to Ecuador is calculated with a range of factors under consideration, including:

  • The size of the container (20-foot or 40-foot) that you require
  • The ports of loading and discharge
  • Available carrier capacity
  • The demand for carrier capacity
  • Fuel prices 
  • The route over which the container will be shipped
  • The type of service required (door-to-door, port-to-port, or other)

Ocean Freight to Ecuador

Full-container-load (FCL) and less-than-container-load (LCL) shipping are two of the most popular methods of moving freight to Ecuador. That’s largely because container transportation offers all the benefits of ocean freight shipping and more, since it’s easy to transfer containers onto trucks or trains for transport on land.

We recommend that you consider FCL shipping if you’re sending enough freight to Ecuador to fill, or nearly fill a 20-foot or 40-foot container, or if you don’t want your goods to share a container with other shippers’ cargo.

For smaller consignments, comprising just a few pallets, for example, you should find that an LCL service is ideally suited to your needs, as long as you’re prepared for your freight to be consolidated with other goods bound for the same port of discharge. In this case, the key benefit of LCL shipping will be cost, because you pay only for the container space that your goods occupy.
