France, Western Europe’s largest country, has traditionally served as a gateway between the continent’s northern and southern parts. In the north, it borders Germany and Belgium; in the west, the Atlantic Ocean; and in the south, the Pyrenees Mountains and Spain. Air freight to France cargo rate has increased compared to the previous years and that’s the result of gradual decrease of Covid-19 shipping restrictions.
France is also the agricultural hub of Europe, with wide rich plains dominating most of the north and west.
In 2020, the cargo traffic volume loaded and unloaded in French cargo airports was estimated to be around 2,467.943 thousand tons, compared to more than 4,522.586 thousand tons in 2019.
Because France is a member of the European Union, there are extra requirements to consider in addition to the country’s own import regulations.
Goods entering the EU are subjected to customs and tariff payments, which are passed on to the buyer, as well as more strict import laws. Personal stuff and gifts will not be subject to customs charges if they meet France’s import regulations.
