How much money should you expect to spend on your shipment?

International shipping can get expensive, but K International Transport can offer the most affordable services possible. The cost of international shipping depends on a number of things, including whether the client is using roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) or a container, whether the client prefers full-container load (FCL) or less-than-container load (LCL), the dimensions of the cargo, and the distance the cargo is being shipped overseas. For example, shipping very heavy equipment FCL to Asia from New York will be more expensive than shipping an automobile RO/RO to Western Europe. However, sometimes ports offer good deals, and shipping to them can be more affordable. K International Transport will always let clients know about the best current deals and cost-saving measures.

Clients should be aware that they may also have to deal with additional costs and tariffs once the cargo arrives at the destination port. Additionally, there are numerous requirements for automobiles and construction equipment. Most commonly, ports in foreign countries will impose cleanliness requirements, and clients may have to pay extra if they do not abide by these regulations.

How to ship cars, vehicles, and automobiles

Automobiles can be shipped via RO/RO or container load. RO/RO is only available for wheeled and self-propelled cargo, while containers can be used for any type of automobile. If a client needs to transport personal effects with the car, using a container is the only option because goods are not allowed inside a car when it is traveling by RO/RO. Clients should also consider the price differences, as RO/RO is typically less expensive because the loading process is easier.

Once the client decides on shipping to an overseas port, clients must submit the original title of the car, the full name, address, and photo identification of the shipper and consignee, prepayment in full, proof of the commercial value of the automobile(s), and a power of attorney allowing K International Transport to handle the shipment for the client. The international shipping company will also need to know the client’s desired date of shipment and the car’s location in the United States. If the car is located far away from a domestic port, K International Transport can arrange for inland trucking and transportation services.


Shipping Construction Equipment

Shipping construction equipment and high-heavy equipment like excavators, bulldozers, cranes, dump trucks, stone trenchers, and more is relatively similar to the transport of automobiles overseas. The international shipping company will need the same documents as are required for shipping automobiles but will also need the exact dimensions of the equipment.

Unless it is wheeled, construction equipment is typically shipped in containers. Containers can come in multiple sizes and shapes, including 40- and 45-foot containers, flat racks, and more. K International Transport will advise clients on the best type of container to use for their particular cargo. Finally, clients can purchase shipping insurance, which applies to the shipment of automobiles as well. Two general types of shipping insurance include total-loss insurance and all-risk insurance. Total-loss covers items that are damaged beyond repair and does not cover minor damage. All-risk insurance, on the other hand, is broader and covers major damage during transport. The purchase of shipping insurance applies to automobiles as well.
