How to Ship Luggage Overseas with International Freight Shipping

If you are moving or taking an extended trip overseas you likely have a lot of excess baggage that you will need to take with you. Assuming you need more than a carry on, international freight shipping can be a viable option. Here at iContainers we offer a less-than-container load (LCL) international shipping option that is perfect for shipping luggage overseas. Let’s walk you through the process.

To ship your luggage or excess household goods via LCL sea freight, all you need to do is know the weight and weight of your luggage. LCL shipments are measured by cubic feet (ftᶾ) or cubic meters (mᶾ) and weight. Be sure to weigh your luggage in pounds (lbs.) or kilograms (kg).

When you have these measurements, simply enter your information into our search and we will generate a series of rates for you. Pick your rate and specifics and then book your shipment. From there, one of our agents will guide you through the shipping process and we will ensure that your excess baggage arrives to your destination as needed.

We are happy to work with you on your particular shipment. Contact us with specific questions about your international shipment or to ask us about our airfreight options. Let’s get your shipment arranged today.
