When clients express interest in international shipping services from experienced freight forwarders, they often inquire about transport automobile and construction equipment abroad. However, this is far from the limitations that companies have. Many clients transport boats and watercrafts every year from ports in the United States to virtually all ports around the world.
Unbeknown to most, international boat shipping services are very similar to other types of container and roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) services. Clients transporting watercrafts can expect their freight forwarding company to offer services such as inland transport of the cargo from door to a port in the United States, loading and unloading, maritime transport, and help with customs clearance and export formalities.
Most ports and freight forwarders are willing to ship and accept cargo of all sizes, so clients can transport fishing boats, yachts, jet skis, and even sailboats, no matter what the destination country is.
Watercrafts can often be shipped on trailer or cradle, on either a RoRo vessel or a flat rack. Either way, an experienced and reliable international shipping company can help determine the best method of transport depending on the type of cargo and the ports used. Transporting a boat or watercraft can be easy, efficient, and affordable with the right help from industry professionals.
