If you are searching for a freight forwarder to ship your goods to New York, then look no further. Mercator Cargo is a well-established freight forwarder that has been in operation for over 20 years. We have a small, but expert team to help you ship your goods to New York, USA. We regularly ship customers’ goods to New York from the UK, so are well placed to handle your shipment.
There are a few options when it comes to shipping to New York from the UK. The first decision to make is whether your goods should transit via sea or air. The most obvious difference is, of course, the time scales. For example a typical shipment time from UK to New York is around 7 to 10 days from Southampton or Felixstowe Docks. Whereas an air shipment to New York from the UK takes a matter of hours.
If your load to be shipped to New York is particularly big (i.e. 20 foot or 40 foot container), and not very urgent, then you might consider a shipment via sea freight (as this generally will be a better priced option compared to air freight depending on cargo size). However, if you have an urgent shipment, or a particularly small shipment (i.e. a light pallet), then air freight might be more favourable.
Once your goods arrive in New York, they will need to be cleared through customs, this is a service we can also offer, in partnership with our agents based in New York. We can then arrange for your shipment to be delivered to its final destination in the USA.
