Do no longer have info on company name.
From her received info address in Jakarta.
But I think Caroline can give you more info to Jakarta.
Also it is more cheaper if you pay all in here (Prepaid).
If you pay all in Jakarta it is called collect and you will need to pay extra in Rotterdam for handling cost in the harbour. (150 Usd I think).
What I am telling you above is when shipping from Semarang to any other harbour in the world. But I think this will the same have you ship from Rotterdam.
Cost Insurance Freight. (CIF)
To get more info about it try to find inco terms 2000 on the internet.
Insurance can be up to 0,35% from total amount.
When you insure all, also insure shipping price. Or else if your container drops overboard, you only get paid the value what is in the container.
Example 8000 Value of the goods, 2000 Shipping.
Insurance will be 10.000 x 0,0035 = 35 Usd.
Maybe better if you use the company from Caroline. But as long as you do not forget what I mentioned above.
Every company in the harbour can do for you the custom clearance and tax. Also you can discuss with them where the truck need to drop the container. Drop is not the correct word. It will stay on the truck and you only have a few hours to empty it.
Ask Caroline to check this for you.
In Holland it is between 2 - 3 hours for 20' foot. Which is enough time.
About Tax, it would be wise to get more info about this. So they will not suprise you with high Tax. I think it is lso better you do not mention the goods are for you (Foreigner), but give only the name of your Wife. To avoid high tax.
Also make sure they put moister aborbers in the container (the company you use) or else your cargo is full with moister web. And maybe some things you can trough away. Ask the company about this. They will hang it on the container wall on all sides.
Arrival time +/- 4 weeks later. When the container has left the harbour they can tell you the exact date when it arrives. Also let them explain in details what to do with the official documents. The documents will be send to the address in Jakarta. From the papers some original copies has to be send to the harbour in Jakarta before the container arrives. At least a week.
