How much does it cost to freight furniture cross country?

The air transport cost per item is something like $10-$20, so it depends on how many items you send. This is because cheap furniture isn’t worth very much, but expensive furniture can be quite valuable. Carriage costs are usually quoted as a percentage of the invoice amount. It should be around 30% for that type of shipment, but cheaper if I have to buy self-storage space for a short period (for example in Toronto it is about 40% of the tariff per month).

How much does a foot freight container cost?

In theory the sum of both cost and value would be huge, thus I have to divide this into smaller parts. From what I know on my own, the rough estimate for calculation purposes is that the smallest minimis quantity is about 3000 kg whereas if we assume a reasonable fruit-style exporter for delivery, it can deliver 2000 (max) containers per year based on a budget $12.5/kg as put forth by  Chris Gayle; If we assume a reasonable size + good quality exporter, the maximum target price looks like $24.50/kg or roughly $2327 per unit however with lower strawberries volume there could be somewhat lower prices in terms of pounds vs Kg; Obviously there are factors influencing these facts such as offload trucks rates depending on locations but even though small quantitiy / large number of mouths leads to higher value amount but then again high time-cost for delivery causing low profit margins on top – hence making it harder to raise money directly compared to larger planned amounts .
