Many clients seek to transport high-heavy equipment such as excavators, cranes, bulldozers, dump trucks, and stone cutters from the United States to other ports in the world. Clients can choose, with the help of their freight forwarder’s international construction equipment shipping services, between transporting their equipment via container or roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessel. The decision will often be based on the relative cost of each option, as well as the type, size, and number of items being transported.

For clients transporting construction equipment overseas, they can expect the freight forwarding company to offer to pick up the equipment at the door or warehouse, and transport it to a port in the United States with inland trucking and transportation services. The equipment will then be loaded onto a vessel or into a 20’, 40’, or 45’container. Finally, the cargo will take of to virtually any port in the world. The international shipping company will help the client take care of export formalities and customs clearance abroad.

With reliable international shipping services, transporting construction equipment overseas never has to be difficult for the client!
