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

The shipping duration for a container to Norway from various ports in the United States can vary based on factors such as the specific port, shipping route, weather conditions, and the type of service chosen (e.g., standard shipping, expedited service). Generally, shipping a container from the ports you mentioned to Norway would involve transit times ranging from approximately 2 to 6 weeks.

Here’s a rough estimate of the shipping durations from the ports you mentioned to Norway:

  1. Port of Los Angeles, CA: Shipping from Los Angeles to Norway can take around 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the shipping route and any potential transshipment points.
  2. Port of Houston, TX: Shipping from Houston to Norway might take about 3 to 5 weeks, again depending on the route and other factors.
  3. Port of Savannah, GA: Shipping from Savannah to Norway could have a similar timeframe, with transit times of around 3 to 5 weeks.
  4. Port of New York, NY: Shipping from New York to Norway may take around 2 to 4 weeks, considering its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and potential direct shipping routes.

Keep in mind that these are approximate estimates and actual shipping times may vary. It’s crucial to work closely with your Direcyt Express Inc agent to get accurate information based on your specific needs and circumstances. Additionally, factors like customs clearance, weather delays, and other logistical considerations can influence the overall shipping duration.


Car Shipping to Norway Checklist

In order to export any vehicle from the U.S., we will require the following in order to meet US Custom regulations:

  • Original Title/MSO
  • Completed SLI & POA form
  • Copy of Passport
  • Commercial Invoice / Bill of Sale (official DMV template available on request)

VAT Rates Norway

Prior to importing a vehicle from the US to Norway, verify your vehicle’s specifications and compliance with Norway requirements. Anyone importing a vehicle to Norway from the US needs to pay certain duties.

If you are importing a vehicle to Norway from the USA, your car will be subject to local customs duties levied by the Norwegian government, these include:

  • Registration Tax – Calculated based on your vehicle specifications, this is only paid once.
  • 25% VAT – Based on the customs value, paid when you cross the border.
  • Greenhouse Gas Tax – Calculated according to weight of the greenhouse gases in your vehicle’s air conditioning system.
  • Scrap Deposit Tax – Collected with your Registration Tax.

However, in certain circumstances you might be able to gain exemption from paying customs duties and taxes.

Temporary residents staying for a year or less can import the vehicle tax and duty free. However, the time period begins upon your arrival to Norway, not when your vehicle arrives. If you’re planning on staying more than a year, all required taxes must be paid.

The amount of taxes and import duties payable when importing a car to Norway from the US will vary and depends on the details of your shipment.
