We offer several international shipping methods with options perfect for every cargo type.
ROLL-ON ROLL-OFF (RORO)
RORO vessels are essentially parking garages on the ocean. Vehicles are driven onto the ship, secured, and protected from the elements. RORO shipping is perfect for those seeking competitive rates– and occasionally has the advantage of faster transit times compared to containers.
SHARED OR DEDICATED CONTAINER SHIPPING
Container shipping offers several options. It is ideal for non-running classic cars, offers more port locations, and can be extremely quick depending on your selection.
Shared container shipping is just as it sounds. Your cargo is shipped with other cargo in a shared container. All fees are shared between customers using the container, such as terminal handling charges, loading / unloading charges, and trucking of the container to and from the terminals.
Dedicated container shipping works the same way as shared container, but your cargo is the only thing in the container. This is typically used if the customer needs the vehicle in a hurry or if it’s shipping to a location that we do not offer container consolidations to. This service is more expensive than RORO and shared container, but is one of the quickest options outside of Air Freight.
AIR FREIGHT SERVICES
Air freight shipping is the quickest service available, but is also the least used. Due to the cost, air freight is typically used for rare vehicles and time sensitive shipments.
