Transporting Goods Overseas to Sweden
Sweden’s location at the center of the Scandinavian region makes it a strategic international link between the Baltic Sea and North Sea. Even though it has a population just over 9 million, most inhabitants are concentrated around a handful of urban areas.
Most international container shipping services to Sweden run through Gothenburg, Helsingborg or Stockholm. Stockholm is the capital city and the largest. However, its second biggest city, Gothenburg, handles the most overseas shipments to Sweden and is the country’s biggest port.
The primary port that we work with in Sweden is the port of Gothenburg. This is the main point of entry for our containers shipped from the U.S.
Goods We Can Move Overseas to Sweden
Items that we have extensive experience shipping to Sweden include:
- Automobiles and other types of vehicles
- Personal effects and other goods for people relocating Sweden
The vast majority of cargo deals with these two commodities but we offer additional services for those who would like to securely ship classic vehicles and motorcycles, boats, and we even arrange international transportation of pets to Sweden.
As mentioned earlier, our international shipping services to Sweden run through Gothenburg. Further transportation from the port can be arranged by one of our overseas agents.
Another option for individuals shipping items to a destination in the south of Sweden is shipping to Copenhagen, Denmark as this port is closer to both Helsingborg and Malmo. You will of course be dealing with additional customs.
Sweden has a stable import/export landscape with the majority of exports coming from the engineering sector. More specifically, over a third of all exports from Sweden are machinery followed by motor vehicles.
International imports to Sweden are primarily composed of machinery/equipment and oil. If you are planning on importing motor vehicles into Sweden from the U.S, our resource will let you know how this can be done.
