Delivery of Coconut Charcoal Briquette for Hookah from the Factory in Indonesia
Coconut charcoal briquette delivery from the factory in Indonesia can be done only by sea freight in 20 ft or 40 ft containers. It is impossible to send charcoal by LCL (less container load), i.e. when you send only one or two pallets of charcoal. The container should be fully loaded with charcoal only.
This requirement is due to the fact that coconut charcoal briquettes are assumed as DG (dangerous goods) and cannot be mixed with other goods. While shipping container with charcoal is stored on a special safe place at the vessel. Delivery by air is not economically good, as price of sending charcoal by pallets via airfreight is from 2 to 5 USD per kg. So, it cost twice more to deliver goods than the goods itself.
Besides it, as factory we produce charcoal in batches with minimum volume of 3.5 tones per batch. So, the delivery of coconut charcoal can be done only by sea freight. 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 just 15500 kg if the shape is the finger.
We recommend not to use pallets as they consume about 15% of the space in the container.

We are able to ship from Tanjung Priok port in Jakarta, Indonesia. Please keep in mind that we have to book vessel in advance. It takes 1-3 days to choose and confirm shipping line.
Not all shipping lines accept coconut charcoal as dangerous goods (DG). Besides it the price for shipping of DG is more expensive then usual shipping.
Staffing of coconut charcoal is done at our factory in Tangerang, Indonesia. After that truck goes to the port of Tanjung Priok in Jakarta.
It takes about 1 – 1.5 hours to reach the port of Tanjung Priok. Then, the 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.
