How many indexes and constraints are on the new table?
Drop all of them and recreate them once the table is filled. Of course
that only works if you know your data will be ok (which is normal for
imports of already conforming data like database dumps of existing tables).
This will give major performance improvements, if you have indexes and
such on the new table.
