All international shipping companies and their clients know about roll-on/roll off shipping because it is an efficient way to board cargo onto a vessel before shipping it off to another port. 

However, not many people know that there is a very popular ro-ro transport system in New York City! 

Of course, we’re talking about the Staten Island Ferry!

Although the ferry now only carries passengers going from Staten Island to Manhattan or vice versa, it used to carry automobiles as well!

Before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, you could transport your car from Staten Island to Manhattan for only $3! Your car would be loaded onto the ferry easily because of roll-on/roll-off services, and transported with no hassle. 

Although K International Transport cannot get your car on the ferry, we can offer you many other international shipping service to ship your car overseas:

  • International shipping from any port in the United States, including those in New York, Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, California, and more!
