Which Shipping Option Do You Need?

Once you have established your moving day, it’s important to arrange your shipping in advance. Due to Luxembourg’s smaller size and limited port and airport options, it is more susceptible to transport delays. Booking a removal company in advance will minimise these issues.

Luxembourg’s geographic location works to its advantage as it is bordered by Belgium, Germany and France. This means an extensive rail and road network exists for those moving from the UK.

Arranging shipping is also important due to the additional paperwork required following Brexit. Extra regulations and checks are placed on British citizens when moving to Luxembourg. This means it is crucial to consider this well beforehand.

Luxembourg can be accessed by land, sea, or air. You can choose from the following:

  • Shipping freight
  • Road freight
  • Part-load
  • Air freight

You can use one mode of transport or a combination, depending on your needs and requirements.

Shipping Freight

Shipping a container to Luxembourg is different to most international locations as there is only one major port in the country.

Shipping goods to Luxembourg can be a timely process, taking up to 6 weeks for your belongings to arrive. The Mertert River Port is located in Mertert and boasts a total surface area of 65 hectares.

It is a cost-effective option that can cater to any size move. However, there is a higher chance of delays due to the limited access and routes to the port and Brexit.


Road Freight

Road freight is the most efficient shipping method thanks to Luxembourg’s landlocked location. This means that there are plenty of road and rail networks to utilise.

The road and rail transport networks in Luxembourg are world-renowned thanks to their links with the neighbouring countries. There are approximately 400 companies that specialise in international cargo.

Boasting the fastest delivery times, a full-container load can take up to 3 days to arrive from the UK. This makes road freight the most reliable option, while also remaining suitable for any size move.

Part load luxembourg


Part-load is the best option for smaller moves as you will be assigned a portion of a container. This can be applied to any type of shipping freight, depending on your needs and requirements. The container will contain other people’s goods. It is the best choice for those looking to minimise their budget.

Part-load takes longer to arrive as the transport will most likely make stops on the way to drop off other people’s belongings. This means that it can take up to 8 weeks for your goods to arrive on average.

The slowness of transport is the main downside to part-load, especially if you choose shipping or road freight options. Part-load also comes with space restrictions, making it unsuitable for larger moves.


Air Freight

Air freight takes up to 7 days as there is only one international airport, Luxembourg Airport (previously known as Luxembourg Fidel Airport). Located to the east of Luxembourg City, it is also home to the headquarters of Luxembourg’s cargo airline, Cargolux. This means that it can be tricky to move goods via air freight.

This is an ideal choice for those transporting valuable and fragile goods such as antiques, art, and jewellery. Luxembourg Airport has a high-security zone that is situated away from the populated airport areas. This ensures protection for your goods.

The downside to air freight is that it is the most expensive option and is unsuitable for larger moves as it is dependent on weight.

What Documentation Do I Need?

Since the UK’s exit from the European Union, there are additional steps that British citizens must take when moving to Luxembourg. You will need to make sure that you have proof of the following to avoid delays:

  • A valid passport
  • List of shipping inventory
  • Proof of funds
  • Relevant permits and visas

If you are planning to move to Luxembourg for less than 90 days, you can apply for a Schengen Visa which applies to those looking for a short-term stay.

Those wanting to move to Luxembourg for a longer period will have to apply for a Residence Document. This form must be submitted by post to the Immigration Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (Direction de l’Immigration du ministère des Affaires étrangères et européennes).

Successful applicants may then be invited for an interview. This will be at the Immigration Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs or the Luxembourg Embassy in London. They will have their photograph and fingerprints taken which will then be included in the Residence Permit.
