Shipping to Switzerland with us is affordable, we offer expert help for sending your, providing you with no compromise shipping services at the most competitive rates.

If you are planning to move overseas to Switzerland we can provide 20FT, 40FT container shipping services, less than container loads (LCL) and also airfreight services for boxes and suitcases.
Sole-purpose 20FT and 40FT containers (FCL) have less cargo handling than other options and goods are therefore less liable to be damaged during transit
LCL (shared container services) are a great way to ship 1m3 – 8m3 without paying the price of a full 20FT container. This is charged per cubic meter and an affordable method for shipping items that are too large for postal services but not large enough quantities to warrant a full 20FT container.
Door to Door and Depot to Depot shipping options available.
