Delivery of Coconut Charcoal Briquettes for Shisha/Hookah from the Manufacturing Facility in Indonesia

Delivery of coconut charcoal briquettes for hookah from the factory in Indonesia can be done just by sea freight in 20″ or 40″ containers.

It’s difficult to send out charcoal by LCL (much less container load), i.e. when you send out only one or two pallets of charcoal. The container must be fully loaded with charcoal only.

This requirement is because coconut charcoal briquettes are assumed as DG (dangerous goods) and also cannot be mixed with other products. While shipping containers with charcoal are kept in a special safe place on the vessel.

Delivery by air isn’t economically good, as the cost of sending out charcoal by pallets using air freight is from 2 to 5 USD per kg. SO it costs two times more to deliver products than products itself.

Besides, as a factory we produce charcoal in batches with a minimum quantity of 3.5 tonnes per batch.

So, the delivery of coconut charcoal could be done only by sea freight. One of the most common is to use 20″ containers. This size of the container can feet from 18200 to 19200 kg of coconut charcoal (cube size) and also just 15500 kg if the shape is the finger.

We suggest not to use pallets as they consume about 15% of the space in the container.

We are able to ship from Semarang or Surabaya ports. Please bear in mind that we need to book a vessel in advance. It takes 1-3 days to choose and confirm the shipping line.

Not all shipping lines approve coconut charcoal as dangerous goods (DG). Besides, the cost for shipping of DG is more expensive then common shipping.

Staffing of coconut charcoal is done at our manufacturing facility in Sleman, Special Region of Yogyakarta & Center Java. After that, the truck goes to the port of Semarang or Surabaya.

It takes about 5 to 19 hours to reach the port of Surabaya. After that container is weighted, fumigated and lifted to the feeder vessel. Feeder vessel goes to Port Klang or Singapore to move containers to the Mother Vessel.
