I've done some international shipping (Europe to US) and DHL is typicaly the cheapest.
It was shipped via DHL. Arrived to the US within a week.

The engine is now ready to cross the Atlantic Ocean for the 3rd time. (Austria to US, US to UK, UK to US). Its trip will take several weeks.

I'm guessing he means: -

From Magna Steyr (in Austria, where the engine was made) to Spartanburg where the X5 was assembled..

Then from Spartanberg to the UK, in a fully assembled vehicle...

and now back to the USA as a used engine...

Great news and good luck on the delivery. I'm surprised that they are using a CHEP pallet out of the UK since they were made illegal there about 5 years ago due to the chemical treatment on them. Those "Health & Safety" twatwaffles in the UK sent a $100k missile guidance section back to Al-Kharj because of not allowing the pallet in 2 years ago.

PS. Don't burn it. The smoke will dry clean your lungs...
