How long does it take to ship a container to the Virgin Islands?

The shipping time from various U.S. ports to the Virgin Islands can vary depending on several factors, including the specific port of departure, shipping route, shipping company, and any potential stops along the way. Typically, shipping to the Virgin Islands takes anywhere from 7 to 21 days. Here’s a rough estimate of shipping times from the mentioned U.S. ports to the Virgin Islands:

  1. Port of Long Beach, CA:
    • Shipping to the Virgin Islands from Long Beach, CA, on the West Coast is likely to take around 14 to 21 days. The longer transit time is due to the distance involved and the need for the vessel to cross the Panama Canal or take a similar route.
  2. Port of Houston, TX:
    • Shipping from Houston, TX, on the Gulf Coast to the Virgin Islands typically takes around 7 to 14 days. The Gulf Coast is closer to the Caribbean, which can result in shorter transit times.
  3. Port of Savannah, GA:
    • Shipping from Savannah, GA, on the East Coast of the U.S. to the Virgin Islands usually takes approximately 10 to 14 days. The East Coast is relatively closer to the Caribbean compared to the West Coast.
  4. Port of New York, NY:
    • Shipping from New York, NY, on the East Coast is similar to shipping from Savannah, GA, and typically takes around 10 to 14 days.

It’s important to note that these are rough estimates, and actual shipping times may vary based on factors like the shipping company’s schedule, the availability of vessels, and any potential delays due to weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances. If you’re planning to ship cargo or a vehicle to the Virgin Islands, it’s advisable to check with your Direct Express Inc agent for more precise and up-to-date information on shipping times and schedules.
