  • How long does it take to clear customs in Denmark

Nothing special, normally one day is enough for fast customs clearance. Now when the goods have not yet arrived at the destination, they will first pre-clear customs, if it is smooth, there is no special customs clearance, and it will be directly released when it arrives in the local area. If the pre-clearance has not passed, the specific customs clearance time depends on the speed of the recipient's cooperation. Some 1-2 days, some 4-7 days. This is uncertain

Part 2.Ocean Freight From China to Denmark

In Denmark, sea, air and road transport are more developed and most people choose sea transport to the ports in Denmark to transport goods from China to Denmark. The reason for this is that shipping by sea is much less restrictive than the other two modes of transport, with the lowest costs and guaranteed times.

Unfortunately, direct shipping from China to Denmark is not yet supported, and you need to transfer from another port to the corresponding port in Denmark. The Danish shipping line mainly calls at the two ports of Aarhus and Copenhagen in Denmark, and the shipping routes of other ports are relatively small. If you have other port transportation needs, you can consult us for details, as a logistics company is confident to give you a satisfactory answer.

  • Which container type to choose for sea freight to Denmark

LCL refers to multiple tickets loaded together into one container, i.e. bulk cargoes of multiple shippers are loaded together into one container. For some customers with relatively small cargo volumes, they usually choose bulk shipping, and they can also share boxes with others, and the shipping period will be longer.

How many days can I get to the Danish statute of limitations?

Normally, the shipping time from China to Denmark is about 30-40 days, there may be errors in different destination ports, but the difference should not be far. In addition, customs clearance takes about 10-15 days, so it takes 40-55 days in total for Danish shipping companies to complete door-to-door delivery.

Part 5.About shipping costs from China to Denmark

Cost of Shipping via Ocean

When it comes to ocean freight, cheap cost is the impression most people give it.

With cheap costs and a more acceptable timeframe, ocean freight sits firmly in the most used position. When we talk about its cost, as an importer, we all talk about what costs are made up of.

A simple analysis will reveal that the cost components are very simple. Certain costs will change as you move through the transportation process.

As an importer, there is only one thing to do, and that is to minimize costs.

One of the ways to do this is to compress the required shipping costs.

But what are some ways to do this?

① Buy different offers from different shipping companies

Comparing the prices between different shipping companies will allow you to make a better choice. Let's talk about the costs and the services they offer. You can even get freight rates you are more than happy with.

② Rationalize your packing materials

Because your shipping costs are based on the weight charged, you don't want to be charged extra, either. Some packaging is non-required, avoid using over the specifications of the packaging provided by the airline in the specifications of the packaging material provided by the airline.

③ Shipping costs are also an important part of the cost of your goods

The ultimate goal of all businesses is to make a profit, and the less transportation costs they bear, the better. Instead, pass it on to the buyer and your shipping costs will be much lower and easier.

④ Avoid parts shipping.

Undoubtedly, damage to goods in transit is one of the reasons for high transportation costs. You can arrange one-way transportation to avoid this particular situation

This will reduce your shipping costs.

The larger the package, the higher the price. However, please note that for smaller shipments, air freight may be considered and air freight may be the more economical option.If you choose airfreight, for shipments under 100 kg you have to consider that it will be cheaper by weight, in addition, you can also enhance the greater value by choosing courier.

The means of transport: Air freight is always going to be much more expensive that shipping via ocean freight.
