Container Shipping to Germany

Container shipping to Germany is our most popular way of transporting goods. With this service, your goods are loaded into a container in the US and sails to the port in Germany.

We offer two main container services, consolidated and sole use. Each of these has benefits depending on your particular shipping situations.

Consolidated Container

Consolidated container shipping to Germany has multiple customers fill a container together. The benefit of this is the cost is split based on the space. This is the best value for shipping to Germany as you only pay for the space you use rather than pay for a whole container.

Sole Use Container

Sole use container shipping to Germany has a full container for a single person. We offer both 20 and 40 foot containers to Germany and hold 1000 and 2000 cubic feet respectively. The benefit of this service is you have more control over the shipment. Rather than wait for other customers, your container can ship as soon as the goods are ready to go.
