Shipping to Sweden
As one of the largest, richest countries in Europe, Sweden is a big trading partner with the UK. Sweden’s import and export trade with the UK amounts to around £8 billion, a large portion of which is eCommerce.

Preparing your parcel for shipment
To ensure the contents of your parcel arrives in one piece, please make sure to package your items properly. Always use a sturdy cardboard box or a reinforced envelope for smaller items, with protective materials (such as bubble wrap or polystyrene chips) to stop your items being knocked about while in-transit. For full, detailed instructions, please refer to our packaging guide.
How much does it cost to ship to Sweden?
The cost of shipping a parcel from the UK to Sweden will depend on several factors. The most influential being the size and weight of your parcel. Most courier sites will ask you to provide the measurements of your parcel, in order to provide you with an accurate quote. To get a free quote today, please use our instant quote generator.
The speed of arrival you require will also affect the final cost of shipment. If you require express delivery, you will have to pay slightly more than economy delivery services. Always remember to compare prices across a range of sites in order to get the best price possible.
Will I have to fill out a customs invoice?
As the UK is no longer a member of the European Union, you will have to fill out a customs invoice when creating your shipment data. With Impact Express, we make every effort to ensure the shipping process is as simple as possible. We allow our customers to fill out such information online, removing the need for any physical paperwork and eliminating the chances of delays and extra charges.
Are there any items that I can’t send to Sweden?
As with most EU countries, there are strict import regulations regarding what is allowed in and out of the country. For Sweden, prohibited items include but are not limited to:
- Meat, milk and any items thereof from non-EU countries.
- Products of species protected under the Washington Convention (CITES), including tortoise shell, reptile skin and coral.
Always remember to check the countries full prohibited items list or if you’re still unsure, contact HM Revenue and Customs. It’s always best to check your courier’s prohibited items list too, as some couriers refuse to carry items which are considered ‘dangerous’.
