International Shipping from / to Greece
Who ships to Greece?
GAC is a Greece based company that handles international shipping, primarily via ocean cargo which is Greece's main mode of shipping given its topography. Schumacher Cargo, MSC and Ship Overseas are also big ocean cargo companies operating in and out of Greece. For parcels you may look into shipping with NEX, UPS or FedEx among many others in the region, giving you ample opportunity to compare prices.
Preparing your shipment to Greece
Before you ship to Greece you are going want to check with your shipping company or the Customs web site for the most recent list of what items are restricted or prohibited. Assuming your shipment does not contain any of those, package it securely and get a tracking number for it so you will know when it arrives.
Shipping destinations in Greece
Given the vast ocean front that defines the Greek isles, it should come as no surprise that there are many ports of entry for shipments throughout the country. And although you can ship to anywhere in Greece, the major cities will receive their packages sooner than the rural areas in most cases. This is partly due to a lack of infrastructure in many areas of Greece still (lack of roads or passable roads).
Required documents when shipping to Greece
To ship to Greece, you need to have a bill of lading, a Certificate of Origin and an invoice at the ready for when the shipment gets to Customs. If you are shipping certain items, such as live animals or pharmaceuticals, then you will need additional documentation. It is best to talk to your chosen shipping company as to what paperwork you need and if your shipment falls into that latter category so that you can be prepared. Failure to have the appropriate documentation filled out or enough copies of it can cause serious delays in getting your shipment through Customs in a timely manner.
