The rate for shipping to Guatemala depends on the service requested but as far as the destination,  regardless if you decide to ship to Quetzal or Guatemala City, USG is here to help and we make sure to ship your container to where it needs to go! The process will start with the delivery of the container to your door or loading it at our dock and, US Customs export declaration and providing the document to the carrier who is going to take over the container from the port of origin in the US to place of delivery in Guatemala. For shipping to Guatemala from the US, we offer container and consolidation service and USG is one of the companies providing breakbulk and over-sized cargo as well to Guatemala.
