Container Shipping Service

Even more secure service at slightly higher cost is available through containerized transportation. Above is a picture of a grounded container, with a vehicle being driven inside for loading.

Once inside, the vehicle’s battery is disconnected and the vehicle is blocked and braced securely. Container loading in the United States is mostly via loading dock, with the container already placed on truck chassis.

* These pictures are for illustration purposes only – not all ports are serviced by Ro/Ro and Container, and local stevedores or warehouse personnel may use other commercially reasonable techniques.

We specialize in shipping luxury, classic, antique and vintage vehicles, like this 1927 Ford Model T, from the United States to worldwide destinations. We can also provide inland transportation service from door to port in an enclosed car carrier

K International, one of the leading international shipping companies, is a bonded and licensed freight forwarder, NOT a moving company; we can even place ocean-going containers for your HOUSEHOLD GOODS at your residence (in which case you will responsible for loading the container yourself). For security and liability reasons, however, we do not permit shippers to stow their own vehicles under any circumstances. If you bring your household goods to one of our warehouses along with your vehicle we can arrange for proper containerization.

Air Freight Service

Expedite international air freight shipping is also available.

The pictures above show a customized Porsche prepared for air freight. The car is carefully secured prior to shipping.

After the car is strapped down and secured, the car is wrapped to prevent any damage during transport.
