Sea shipping to and from the Canaries and the mainland can be on either a 40ft Container or 20ft Container or part load basis. For goods sent as a full load, shipping costs are based on a total price for an entire container depending upon a 40ft or 20ft. This cost will not vary, no matter how full or empty the container is. Goods sent as a part load, the shipping cost will be based on the volume and will be priced per Cubic Metre (the area that your goods take up in the container). It is, therefore, very important that you have accurate sizes of your goods for shipment so we can prepare an accurate quotation for your shipping costs.
