How Long Does International Shipping Take?
Shipping your package international can take anywhere from days to weeks, depending on the shipping mode and your freight or package size. Here at Vans LTL Courier, we are known for our fast international delivery. Our international shipping process consists of the following:
Export Haulage: We move the freight or package from its origin destination to the next warehouse or facility for departure to the border.
Export Customs Clearance: Your freight or package will pass through the clearance process before moving to the next stage when it gets to the exporting country’s border.
Transportation: The transportation process commences after your freight or package has successfully left the origin country.
Import Customs Clearance: Your package passes through another clearance process when it gets to the border of the importing country. This is one of the most crucial parts of the shipping process, and we must ensure your freight complies with the customs policies.
Import Haulage: After clearing the importer country’s border, your freight or package is moved from the border to its final destination.
How Much Does International Shipping Cost?
Estimating how much international shipping will cost you can be quite challenging with many variables involved. Here are factors that could affect the price of your shipment:
Distance: The distance of your items will influence the cost of your international shipment. A longer journey will cost you more than a shorter journey.
Customs: Customs costs can vary between countries. Depending on your shipping destination and their laws, it could be cheaper or more costly.
Item Size: The space your items will take up also affect your international shipping quote. Larger and heavier objects will take up much space, costing more money.
Timings: If you need your items shipped abroad at a specific time, this will influence your cost. If timings are an essential consideration, you need to know that some customs offices can cause unexpected delays.
