How much does it cost to ship a container to Guatemala?

Pricing a container shipment to Guatemala requires information specific to the shipment, such as the ports of origin and destination, the size of the container (20-foot or 40-foot) you wish to use, and in some cases, the volume of your freight consignment.

That’s why the best way to learn the price to ship a container to Guatemala is to talk to some forwarders or carriers and perhaps get a quote or two.

In case a very general idea of pricing is sufficient for you at this stage, we’re sharing a few guidelines on this page. However, if you have goods you want to send to Guatemala as LCL or FCL cargo, we encourage you to request a quote, so we can give you accurate price guidance.

Ocean freight to Guatemala

When you want all the benefits of ocean freight shipping, without the complications, Full-container-load (FCL) and less-than-container-load (LCL) services from Interworld Freight are just the ticket.

Enjoy the flexibility to ship your goods to Guatemala as FCL freight when you have enough to fill a 20-foot or 40-foot container, or if you don’t want them to share a container with other importers’ shipments, or as LCL cargo when you don’t want to wait to accumulate a full load or are simply shipping a smaller quantity.

In terms of costs, LCL freight is best for smaller shipments, since you are charged only for the space your cargo will occupy in a container. Meanwhile, FCL is ideal for consignments of more than 15 cubic meters in size. With FCL shipping, the larger your consignment, the lower will be the unit costs for sending it to Guatemala.
