DSV offers you simple and effective sea freight solutions to and from Iceland
When having a customer or supplier in Iceland, you would think that the logistical process will be complicated. After all, Iceland is an island with no direct road connections or an EU membership. In practice however this is less difficult than you might think, especially with the expert help of the DSV Iceland Desk.
Import or export Iceland
For over ten years, DSV Air & Sea has had a specialised desk fully focused on Iceland. In close cooperation with our local partner Thorship, we handle Full Container Load (FCL) and Less than Container Load (LCL) freight. It doesn’t matter whether you want your goods delivered to the port or all the way to the door.
We guarantee a fixed weekly departure, whether your cargo is import or export.
Customs regulations Iceland
Thanks to our many years of logistical experience with Iceland, our team is always up to date with the latest regulations for transport to and from this country. For example, it is good to know that Iceland is not an EU member state, which means that free trade to and from Iceland is not possible. For both the export and import of goods you will therefore have to deal with duties and customs legislation. In addition, Iceland has strict rules for the import of food and dangerous goods, for example. And of course, we can advise you on this.
With 4,900 teus of ocean freight annually, DSV is well represented in Iceland. Your advantages of shipping cargo to and from Iceland via DSV are:
- A weekly fixed departure with five days transit time from port to port;
- Knowledge on the most current market conditions and customs legislation in Iceland;
- Safe and efficient handling of your shipments;
- The option of full insurance of your goods during the entire transportation.
