Container shipping cost

Posted by Dr. Yan Lyansky on Jan 29th 2021

Our most recent container arrived with unbelievable costs. For the past two decades we normally pay $5,000 for containers, with a total cost of $6,000 including trucking & fees.  This container was inspected by customs, which costed extra. Altogether, we paid about $12,000 for this shipment ( not including duty ).

UPS implemented a $20 surcharge for oversized boxes, Trump's 25% duty is in full effect ( exceptions expired ), and the new shipping cost will increase retail costs for the entire market.

I'm curious how 2021 bicycle market shakes far it looks wild.
