Container Shipping to Finland
Container shipping to Finland from the US is the most used shipping service. We offer two different types of container shipments: consolidated and sole use. Each has their own benefits that we’ll go over.
A majority of container shipments to Finland are done via consolidated container. The reason for this is that consolidations offer the most value for a shipment as you only pay for the volume you use. The goods are loaded together and shipped to the same base port which is Helsinki in this case. When shipping beyond Helsinki, the goods are loaded and transported via land to wherever you need in the country.
On the other hand, sole container shipping to Finland involves sending your own personal container. We offer both 20 and 40 ft containers that hold 1000 and 2000 cubic feet of goods respectively. The main benefit of this service is quicker departure times. Since there is no period for consolidation, the goods can ship out as soon as they are ready to ship.
Rules for Importing Goods into Finland
There are really two scenarios regarding the arrival of your shipment at customs. Your belongings will either qualify to be exempt or they won’t.
Finland makes the basic rule that if the items were purchased in the US or other home country, used for over six months, and the private individual has lived abroad over a year then the goods could potentially be shipped and imported duty free.
However this does not apply to every single type of commodity or good which is why they require an inventory list. So be sure to check with the local customs office or embassy.
If you are transporting an unrestricted vehicle, the same applies to motor vehicles valued under $34,000. If you want to ship a newer model, you can expect import fees of about 55%. This total is calculated based on the retail price of the car in Finland.
