International Shipping to Holland

Shipping Goods to the Netherlands from the USA

International shipping to the Netherlands is popular as Holland is one of the most accessible and busiest European countries for overseas shipments.

Europe’s biggest port is located in Rotterdam and two of the top ten ports in Europe are located in the small country. This makes the Netherlands a major shipping destination in the region not just for those relocating to the area but also for those transporting goods to other European destinations. For example, if you are going to be shipping a vehicle to Poland with our consolidated container service, you may have a quicker arrival date by shipping through Rotterdam or Amsterdam because our ocean freight services run more frequently to these ports.

Since 1977, we’ve gained extensive experience helping individuals and families ship to Holland. So if you need your items moved here, whether it’s by air, sea, or a combination of both, we can move almost anything.

How Long Does Shipping to Holland from the US Take

The same factors that affect cost also affect time.

Those shipping to Holland on the west coast can expect the container to be on the water for 4-5 weeks on average. On the other hand, shipping from the east coast generally takes between 3-5 weeks on the water. These shipping times do not include the time it takes for pickup/devery, consolidation, loading, custom clearance, as those have a much more variable duration.

As a premier shipper we work to make sure our shipments to the Netherland are as close to estimates as possible, but times may vary from any dates provided.

Container Shipping to Holland

Container shipping to the Netherlands is the most popular way to ship to the country. 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 Netherland 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 Rotterdam in this case. Later they can be transported to anywhere from Rotterdam to anywhere in the country. 

Sole Use

On the other hand, sole container shipping to the Netherlands 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 to Holland as soon as they are ready to ship.
