Auto Transport to Germany with R+L Global Logistics

You’ll find that R+L Global Logistics has partnered with the best carriers in the business to make auto shipping to Germany simple. We ship all kinds of motor vehicles to Germany, including:

There are two main shipping methods for auto transport to Germany: air freight and ocean freight. If you’re shipping a rare, classic or exotic car to Germany, you might opt for air freight. In most other cases, you’ll find that transport overseas by boat is the best method. 

If you’re shipping overseas, you can choose from shipping services including container transport and roll on roll off (roro) shipping. Container transport involves your cars being loaded into a 20-foot container by itself or a 40-foot container with other vehicles. Roro shipping takes place on a specialized vessel on which cars roll on and off.

No matter which car shipping service you choose, R+L Global Logistics is ready to leverage our relationships with top carriers to your advantage. Let us guide you through the process of shipping a vehicle or a fleet of vehicles.

Most cars shipped to Germany enter the country at the Port of Bremerhaven. This busy port is located on Germany’s North Sea. From there, you might opt for door to door transport to get your shipment to its final destination.

Cost of Shipping a Car to Germany

There are many factors that influence the cost of shipping a car to Germany from the USA. R+L Global Logistics makes the process transparent and is up front about shipping, destination and insurance charges.

Other factors that influence the cost of shipping a car to Germany include:
  • Size and Weight of Vehicle Shipped
  • Distance the Vehicle Travels
  • Shipping method: Air vs Container vs Roro
  • Seasonal Cost Fluctuations

Another important factor to keep in mind when considering the cost of shipping a car to Germany is the customs duties and taxes you might have to pay. You’ll likely be responsible for import duties and VAT. Import duties can vary from 7-10%, depending on the age of the car. You’ll also have to ensure your car meets all German safety standards and pass local regulations called TUV, which stands for technischer Überwachungsverein.

You might be able to avoid import duties and taxes if a few conditions are met. If you’ve lived outside the EU for the past 12 months, but plan to relocate permanently to Germany, you might be able to avoid duties and taxes.

R+L Global Logistics can give you a competitive shipping quote and help you navigate the waters of customs clearance, import fees and VAT. Let us help you determine the cost of shipping a car to Germany. Get the process started by calling us at (866) 322-1381 or reaching out online.
