How long does it take to ship from Denmark to the USA?

When it comes to shipping from Denmark to US time as well as to major US cities, you need to know what to be able to tell your customers on the receiving side or your friends and family there who are expecting the parcel or shipment from you.

Firstly, there is UPS Expedited (air freight, economy), which will take approximately three days or longer. With UPS Saver (also air freight), you are looking at a two-day delivery period. Next up is UPS Express (also air freight), which generally takes around two days for the delivery to arrive as well.
