When shipping to France from the USA, the destination port is usually Le Havre or Marseilles and then transported inland to wherever you need.
Container Shipping to France
Our main service for shipping to France is through container shipments. Container shipping to France from the US allows you to ship a larger volume of goods at a better rate than standard parcel.
We offer both consolidated and sole use container services which each have their own benefits.
When shipping a consolidated container to France, your goods are combined with others going to the same location. This service is the best value as you only need to pay for the space you use. The goods are loaded together and shipped to the same base port. Later they can be moved to anywhere in France for the completion of your door to door shipment.
Sole Use Container
On the other hand, sole containers have the benefit of faster shipping times. We offer both sole use 20 and 40 foot containers that hold 1000 and 2000 cubic feet comparatively. These containers ship faster because they ship without having to wait for anyone else in the shipment. Also there is the option to choose any of the ports as the receiving destination when using your own container.
