Clients may also wonder where K International Transport can help them ship. Luckily, almost any global port will accept construction equipment from ports in the United States! We can transport cargo from New York, Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, California, and Washington. Some popular international ports include:

• Southampton, UK
• Tema, Ghana
• Lagos, Nigeria
• Casablanca, Morocco
• Dakar, Senegal
• Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast)
• Buenos Aires, Argentina
• Shuwaikh, Kuwait
• Hodeidah, Yemen
• Sohar, Oman
• Said or Alexandria, Egypt

Most ports can give clients the option between transporting equipment via container or via Roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) shipping. RO/RO is only available, and is a good option, for towable and self-propelling equipment because the equipment can simply be driven onto and off of the vessel, rather than being loaded into a container. Containers are great for static equipment and for shipment to ports that do not have RO/RO capabilities. Construction equipment that can be dismantled would be loaded into 20-foot or 40-foot containers and reassembled when it arrives overseas. One down side to containers is that shippers may have to dismantle and reassemble the equipment themselves, or otherwise pay for dismantling services. Equipment that exceeds the width and height for a container can be transported on a flat rack container. Flat racks only have two sides, so the bulky equipment can stick out of the container during transport.

Once the mode of transport, the destination port, and the preferred schedule of shipment is decided, clients can begin the shipping process by submitting several required documents. Shippers will be required to prepay in full, submit a power of attorney form to allow the freight forwarder to legally handle their shipment, submit a bill of lading to allow the consignee to take possession of the goods once they arrive, submit a certificate of title to prove ownership of the cargo, prepare a packing list showing all the goods being shipped, record the specifications and dimensions of the goods being shipped, and provide identification information for the shipper and consignee.

Clients often ask how expensive these services typically are. Although shipping construction equipment can be pricy, K International Transport can offer the best deals for the transport of high-heavy equipment overseas. Several factors can influence the price of the shipment, including the dimensions and weight of the equipment, as well as whether it will be shipped via container, RO/RO shipping, or flat rack.

Because this process can be overwhelming, and there is a ton of information to consider, it is important for clients to select an experienced and reliable international shipping company. Luckily, K International Transport has decades of experience transporting all construction equipment, including excavators, bulldozers, cranes, stone cutters, dump trucks and more. We love transport heavy equipment to ports in the Middle East, West Africa, Europe, and Asia, as well as to other regions of the world! When the equipment is ready to be shipped, clients working with K International Transport can request a price quote for the shipment.

Once K International Transport gives you the lowest possible rate for your equipment, you can proceed with the shipment by telling an agent your preferred schedule for export, submitting the necessary documents, and paying the price in full. Once the process has started, K International Transport will take care of their client’s cargo every step of the way.
