International shipping for expats

International shipping options for expats
If you’re traveling light and just want to send a few boxes or suitcases, standard shipping (roughly 10 boxes max) is the way to go. You should get your things in 5-7 working days or if you opt for expressshipping 24 hours (in Europe) or 48 hours (global).
Standard shipping dimensions are as follows:
Weight up to 30 kg
Maximum length of 175 cm
Length (in cm) + 2x width (in cm) + 2x height (in cm) < 300 cm (length plus two times width plus two times height should be less than 300 cm or 3 m altogether)

Anyone who plans to move the majority of their home or belongings from within Europe to Germany can do so via van delivery service in Europe, which can be used for moving any type of large shipment from a motorcycle to a few boxes.
If you need to transport a lot of boxes or larger items, this can be the most cost-effective option, because you don’t pay for each package individually (and you do not necessarily need to follow the packing guidelines, as you would with individual shipments sent through standard or any other type of service).
Delivery time for dedicated vehicles throughout Europe is an estimated 24-48 hours. Van sizes are:
Box van: 465 x 165 x 180 cm or 13 cubic meters and 800 kg capacity
Curtain-side van: 410 x 210x 230cm or 19 cubic meters and 1100 kg capacity
