German Customs Declaration
Any shipment being sent from a non-EU country must go through customs clearance. Germany has stringent regulations for goods entering their country. The duties and taxes paid on any goods shipped depend on the item itself. Your shipping advisor can advise you on documentation requirements and provide you with a list of prohibited items and charges to expect when shipping to Germany. Your advisor will also assist you in preparing these documents and getting them ready before sending out your shipment.
Consignments may be directly sent to Deutsche Post AG provided they are not banned, restricted, or subject to duties. When consignments are subject to clearance from the customs authorities, ensure accurate information is attached on your shipments. Any wrong information or omitting information altogether will result in a delivery delay or confiscation.

Transit Time To Germany
The transit time to Germany is subject to many factors – level of service, nature of goods being shipped, carrier, circumstances, and more. Economy services take longer to deliver your shipments but are great when you want to save some money. Express shipping is ideal for those wishing to send their shipments immediately, such as essential documents for submission or perishable food. Once you decide which service is suitable for you, our shipping advisors can provide you with accurate information on the transit times to Germany. Please note that in the event of unforeseen circumstances, you must expect a delay in delivery.
Cargo Options For Shipping To Germany
Ocean shipping is often considered when the budget is low and you are looking for a great deal. The rates for ocean shipping are considerably low, unmatched by any other mode of transportation. However, the delivery times are also significantly slower than other modes of transportation. Ocean shipping tends to take longer and is subject to as much scrutiny as any other shipping method.
The cargo options commonly sought for shipping to Germany from US –
LCL or Less Than Container Load
This cargo option is commonly used by those with fewer goods. This option lets you consolidate your shipments and share container space with other shippers. You get the low rates of ocean shipping without filling up a container’s worth of freight.
FCL or Full Container Load
This option is ideal for those moving their homes or organizations to another country. You get a whole container exclusively for your things and do not share container space with anyone else, keeping your shipments secure and safe in transit.
Common Documents Needed While Shipping To Germany
All goods entering Germany must be accompanied by certain documents required by the German customs authorities.
SAD or Single Administrative Document
Any shipment entering Germany must comply with the procedures per the Single Administrative Document. The SAD describes the goods and their movement worldwide from the time of entry until customs formalities are completed.
This document is nothing but a legal invoice that contains information on the transaction between the buyer and the seller. The following information needs to be provided in the invoice.
- Certificate of origin
- Country of purchase
- Date of issue
- A detailed description of the items
- Other information related to the items.
You may be required to submit further information on a separate dangerous goods form if your package contains dangerous items containing batteries, lithium, and any deadly weapons.
EORI stands for Economic Operators Registration and Identification Number. Any business or person wishing to ship items to Germany must hold this EORI number to be able to import or export goods to and from Germany. This number is used for statistical purposes.
