Glider Shipping

Shipping Bulletin

February 16, 2024

To: Team Captains

With many foreign teams shipping their gliders to Uvalde by ocean carriage, we like to remind Captains of the importance of making your shipping arrangements as early as possible.

The feedback we are getting from shipping agents is that, due to container shipping gridlock, they are seeing the following timeline:

  • Container shipping booking no later than May 1, 2024
  • Expected transit times: 4 weeks from Rotterdam, Bremerhaven or Antwerp, and 6 weeks from Scandinavian ports. 
  • Aim for arrival Port of Houston no later than 3 rd week of July.

We recommend that you check with your shipping agent as timelines may differ.

Please reach out to shipping@WGC2024uvalde.com if you have questions.
