Many factors will affect how long your shipment takes. In most cases, sail times, meaning time on the water from the east coast to Belgium will be around three weeks. From the west coast it is usually 30 days to all base ports. Generally, door to door shipping to Belgium takes about 7-9 weeks, but there are shipments that are shorter or longer.
We work consistently to meet our estimate but these should serve more as a guide than exact times.
Shipping Services to Belgium
We offer door to door shipping to almost all destinations in Belgium. When actually selecting a service, we offer 3 different types: Consolidated Container, Exclusive Container, and Air Freight.
Our consolidated container service is the best value for almost all shipments. What this means is your goods are shipped with others shipping to Belgium in the same container. In this case, you only need to pay for the space you use which is why it is the best value. The con is that the goods can’t leave until the container is full, so shipments take a bit longer.
Comparatively, exclusive container service gives our customers more control over their shipments. We offer both 20′ and 40′ containers, so we can accommodate different sized shipments. Benefits include more port choices and faster departure times. The con for this is the price is going to be higher since you are using the full container for yourself. Though if you can fill the container this con doesn’t apply.
As the fastest alternative to container shipping to Belgium, we also offer air freight services. With this, your shipment is delivered via plane. Air freight can cut down shipping times massively, but is also a much more expensive service. This service is best chosen when speed is necessary and cost doesn’t matter.
