International Shipping Services to Ireland

Shipping Cargo to Ireland from the US

Since 1977, Schumacher Cargo has offered international shipping to Ireland from the USA. Over the past 40 years, we’ve completed thousands of shipments to Ireland including everything from cars and motorcycles to entire household moves.

It’s become a popular destination for expatriates, retirees, and corporations. One of the main reasons for this had to do with the extremely low corporate tax rates in Ireland. As this tax rate began to climb in the US back in the mid 2000’s, many of the larger international companies decided to incorporate themselves here.

This resulted in many families relocating to Ireland for work purposes, which meant moving their personal effects and household items across the Atlantic. We’ve also helped people ship goods overseas to Ireland for short term relocation or even special events. So whether you want to move the whole family to Cork or you need your boat transported to Dublin, we’ll make sure your experience goes as smooth as possible.

Container Shipping to Ireland

Container shipping is our most popular service to Ireland. With this service, goods are loaded into a container and ships out on the sea. We offer two main container services: consolidated and sole use. The are benefits to each which will be discussed below.

Shipping Consolidated Containers to Ireland

Consolidated container shipping to Ireland involves shipping your goods with others going to the same location. Your goods are consolidated in the same container which gives our customers the best value for the goods they are shipping. For consolidations, you only pay for the space you use rather than pay for a whole container. Because of this value, it is our most popular service for shipments going to Ireland.

Shipping Sole Use Containers to Ireland

On the other hand, sole use container shipping to Ireland involves shipping a container filled with only your own goods. We offer both 20 and 40 foot containers which hold 1000 and 2000 cubic feet respectively. If you have enough goods to reach that threshold, sole use will be the option to use. Another reason someone may opt for sole use is if you need your goods to depart faster. Since you don’t have to wait for the consolidation of others goods, your container can depart as soon as its ready.

Air Freight Service to Ireland

Alternatively, we also offer air freight service for goods that need to be in Ireland exceptionally fast. Instead of shipping to Ireland via container, the goods are loaded directly onto a plane. With this service, speed is a major concern while price should not be an issue. Because of this, air freight is generally only used for high value or luxury shipments that have time constraints such as events, races, shows, etc.
