Important Considerations for Sea Shipping from South Korea to the UK
Before you embark on shipping, it’s crucial to be aware of prohibited items. Items such as hazardous materials or illegal substances cannot be shipped. To ensure a smooth process, please review the list of prohibited items before packing your shipment.
Sea freight from South Korea to the UK typically takes around 40 to 45 working days. Keep in mind that this is an estimate, and unforeseen delays may occur due to factors like weather or customs inspections.
