Erasmus-consejos-envíos-FAQ-preguntas-respuestas

We do many shipments for Erasmus students around Europe. Somehow we become a nexus between them and their families, friends and, of course, favourite meals. And we also like to help when they embark on their adventure with excess baggage. If you cannot check it in, you can always ship it with us. Behind all these Erasmus shipments there are lots of stories, some we imagine, others that they tell us. But before them, there are many questions. Read More

On June 23, the British decided in a referendum that they wanted to leave the European Union, known as the infamous Brexit. The threat of “Brexit” had been confirmed. From now on, the United Kingdom and the European Union begin a negotiation process that will decide what relations they will maintain in the future.

At present, all transport to and from the United Kingdom and the European Union will continue to be handled as before, i.e. under free movement of goods and without customs controls, except for goods such as alcoholic beverages, tobacco and fuels, which are subject to excise duty. Read More

The thing is that many foreigners go there to look for a job, to study and to start a new life. And we can say that they can’t complain. Read More

Iceland: Elves, volcanoes, houses under the grass and an unpredictable weather

By | Airfreight, Luggage, Shipping | One Comment

IMG_0471-2-250x250We all well know places like Ireland, Norway and Berlin as well as many others. Destinations to and from where any transport and courier company offers all kinds of services and fees. But there are also less known destinations, small countries or cities that often are unnoticed, but deserve the same regard.

We recently visited a country that has made culture its homeland, maybe the oldest parliamentary democracy of the world and covered by a savage and unique environment. A country between two continents: Iceland.

At LA LUNA shipping® we like to visit our shipments’ destinations to know them better. So we got up the nerve, we packed a lot of clothes and we travelled to the land of the volcanoes, the elves and the glaciers.

We answer these questions and we will explain you why for a carrier it is not the same to send a kilo of plumb than a kilo of straw. Read More
