Air & Sea Freight Shipping to Belgium

The mode of transport you choose will depend on three factors: time constraints, size/weight/nature of the shipment and budget.  The fastest mode is air freight but it comes at a premium, especially if the goods are particularly heavy or large in volume.  Sea freight might be your preferred option if you have a large load you wish to transport in a container.  Sea freight shipping from Belgium to the UK takes 2-7 days.

If you have a less than container load, trucking is a good option as consolidator sea freight services are not common.  There are regular truck loads between Belgium and the UK taking just a few days in transit.  Mercator handles regular less than truck load shipping from Belgium to the UK of merchandise and also hazardous chemicals.

Exporting Goods to Belgium from the UK

We have a trusted freight forwarding partner located in Antwerp who we have been working with for over 10 years.  Having this contact in Belgium allows us to be able to complete deliveries to door for export sea and air freight to Belgium.

Sea freight exports to Belgium take just a few days on the water (plus time either side for trucking, and loading and unloading from the shipping vessel).  Air freight to Belgium takes a matter of hours (again, adding time either side for collection, airline handling and delivery).  Trucking to Belgium can take around 7 days door to door depending upon the origin in the UK and destination in Belgium.
