Container Shipping from the USA to Germany

Why Choose Container Shipping: Container shipping is a preferred choice for many clients due to its added security and protection for your vehicle during transit. Our sturdy containers are designed to shield your vehicle from external elements, ensuring it arrives in the same condition it was entrusted to us. Whether you have a classic car, an SUV, or a motorcycle, our container shipping option guarantees its safety throughout the journey.

Benefits of Container Shipping:

  1. Security: Our containers are sealed and provide an extra layer of protection against weather conditions, road debris, and potential theft.
  2. Flexibility: Containers come in various sizes, accommodating vehicles of different dimensions. This flexibility ensures that your vehicle fits comfortably and securely within the container.
  3. Personal Items: Unlike other shipping methods, container shipping allows you to transport personal items along with your vehicle, making it a cost-effective choice for relocations.

  • Expertise: With years of experience in international auto shipping, we understand the complexities and nuances of the process, ensuring a seamless experience for our clients.

How long does it take to ship a container to Germany?

The shipping duration for containers from various ports in the United States to Germany can vary based on multiple factors, including the specific port of departure, the destination port in Germany, the shipping line or carrier chosen, weather conditions, and any potential delays in customs clearance. However, I can provide you with estimated transit times for container shipments from the mentioned U.S. ports to Germany:

  1. Los Angeles, CA: Shipping from Los Angeles to major German ports like Hamburg or Bremerhaven can take around 25 to 35 days, depending on the route and carrier.
  2. Houston, TX: Shipping from Houston to Germany can take approximately 30 to 40 days, considering the Gulf of Mexico route.
  3. Savannah, GA: Shipping from Savannah to Germany might take about 30 to 40 days, depending on the specific port in Germany.
  4. New York, NY: Shipping from New York to major German ports could take around 20 to 30 days, considering the North Atlantic route.

Keep in mind that these are rough estimates, and actual transit times may vary. It’s important to consult with your Direct Express Inc agent for more accurate and up-to-date information based on your specific circumstances. Additionally, factors like weather conditions, route changes, port congestion, and customs procedures can impact the overall shipping timeline.
