Shipping United Kingdom - Sweden


Our transport company is immensely experienced in express shipping between the United Kingdom and Sweden. London lies 1942 km (1206 miles) away from Stockholm and most frequently we manage to travel that distance within approximately 42-46 hours. However, sometimes totally random situations may happen and the delivery time can extend with no fault on our side. We mean by this for example difficulties encountered on the roads, such as traffic jams, detours or queues at the border crossing and also tough weather conditions: storms, gales, snowstorms or downpours.

The outstanding network of Swedish roads is a hugely valuable facilitation for express transport between Sweden and the UK. There are about 60 national roads, which present the highest quality of construction. They measure a total of up to 8769 km. What is more, significant European routes go through the territory of Sweden. The largest of them are E6 (from Malmö and Trelleborg through Gothenburg towards the Norwegian Oslo) and E4 (from Helsingborg via Stockholm in the direction of the Finnish Haparanda). Most of them are toll-free. So well-organized roads in a large degree contribute to the intense development of express shipping between Sweden and the UK.

Sweden is one of the Scandinavian countries. In 1995, it became a member of the European Union. The existing political system in this country is a constitutional monarchy. Its constitution is not a single legislative act, but it consists of four separate documents. Sweden belongs to the Council of Europe, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the Nordic Council, the World Trade Organization, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and other organizations. Natural resources, such as iron ore or forests, are crucial for the Swedish economy. It is actually one of the largest exporters of the first one mentioned, as well as cellulose. Moreover, the thriving branches of Swedish industry are steel, machinery, transport equipment, chemical, electrical, as well as the production of weapons. Such famous brands as Volvo, Ericsson, Electrolux, Husqvarna, IKEA, H&M, Oriflame and Nordea Bank originated in this country. These are just some of the aspects which make express transport between the United Kingdom and Sweden is given great recognition in the business world.
