Cost of Shipping a Container to Luxembourg

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Container To Luxembourg?

Luxembourg Container Shipping Cost

When it comes to international shipping, there are many stumbling blocks, especially if you don't know what you're doing. Each country has its unique procedure. However, you don't have to lose sleep over this because Three Movers international movers and shipping company is here to make everything simple for you.

We assist in the shipping of containers to nations all over the world, including Luxembourg. To figure out how much this process will cost, you'll need to get a quote, which is completely free. However, there are a few things that must be understood first.

Factors That Affects the Cost of Shipping

Many issues come into play when shipping a container overseas. However, there are five important things to examine in general. They are as follows:

  • The volume/weight of your cargo
  • Method of transportation
  • The time for delivery/Distance to be covered traveling
  • Compulsory charges at the destination port
  • The season (the time of the year)

Which Size of Shipping Containers Works Best for Me?

20-foot and 40-foot shipping containers are the most common sizes. The 20-foot (suitable for a three-bedroom house) and 40-feet (suitable for a four- to a five-bedroom house). However, the 40-foot container does not cost twice as much as the 20-ft container despite its capacity.

Difference Between FCL and LCL

If you have enough goods to fill a shipping container, the shipping process will be sped up because your items will be loaded quickly into the container. As a result, unlike groupage, you won't have to wait till it's full.

However, you should consider groupage (in which you share a container) if you have a small load and aren't in a hurry. This is the cheapest mode of transportation, but it is also the slowest. This form of partial cargo is referred to as "less than a container load" (LCL). A volume greater than this will, on the other hand, need the use of an entire container. "Full container load" is the term for this (FCL).

Understanding The Different Types of Freight Transportation

You may need one or a mix of freight transport options to deliver your shipments to the appropriate destination, depending on your products, suppliers, and trade habits.

The three modes of freight transportation in Luxembourg are air freight, sea freight, and road freight.

Air Freight

The sole commercial airport in Luxembourg is Findel, which is located a few kilometers north of the capital city. Air freight costs are determined by the item's weight and size. Shipping heavy goods via air are not the most cost-effective option for international movers but it's the fastest.

Land Freight

Luxembourg's road connections to the rest of Europe's freight routes are excellent. As a result, if you're moving from a local or nearby place, shipping by road may be the best option.

Sea Freight

Shipping by sea is usually less expensive than other means of transportation. It is much slower than shipping by air, especially since most sea freight shipments have to be combined with road freight.

Additional Shipping Cost

Some additional shipping costs you may face include:

  • Insurance
  • Container inspection fees
  • Inland delivery charges
  • Luxembourg customs clearance and duties
  • General rate increase
  • Luxembourg standard value-added tax (which is 17%)

Luxembourg has less stringent customs regulations than some other countries. If you're just shipping household items, you won't have to pay customs duties, especially if you've had them for at least six months before arriving in the country.

Furthermore, unless an exemption applies, all products sent into Luxembourg, whether by an individual or a company, are subject to import duty and taxes.
