International Construction Equipment Shipping to Morocco

International Construction Equipment Shipping to Morocco

With a reliable and experienced international shipping company, all clients can transport high-heavy construction equipment to Port Tangier, Morocco, from the United States. K International Transport is a respected freight forwarder that has decades of experience transporting construction equipment, no matter the dimensions, model, or brand of the equipment. We love to transport all types of equipment from brands like Caterpillar, Kobelco, Volvo, Hitachi, Komatsu, and more.

No matter where our clients are located in the United States, K International Transport can ship all construction equipment, including bulldozers, excavators, and more, from New York, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, California, Washington, or any other American port. If the client is unable to transport the Kobelco, Komatsu, Hitachi, or Caterpillar equipment to the domestic port in the United States, K International Transport can set up inland trucking and transportation services with a reputable company. The trucking company will deliver the construction equipment from the door to the port safely.

Required Documents for Shipping Construction Equipment

The first step to shipping internationally is submitting all the necessary documentation for international construction equipment shipping. First, shippers must submit a power of attorney form, which legally allows K International Transport to handle the shipment. A bill of lading is also required. It allows the consignee to take possession of the equipment once it arrives in Morocco or any other country. Certificates of title for each piece of equipment to prove ownership must be provided as well. Finally, shippers must provide their identification and the identification of the consignee. Once these documents are received by K International Transport, shippers can let us know of their preferred time frame for shipment, and we will schedule it for a date that is agreeable with the shipper’s schedule.

The documentation may not be the last of the requirements because ports often institute their own obligations for imported items. This may include inspection and cleaning requirements for the construction equipment. Luckily, K International Transport can help shippers determine what these requirements are and how to meet them successfully.

Transporting Your Construction Equipment to Morocco

Construction equipment can be shipped via roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) vessels or by container. RO/RO is most common for towable and self-propelling equipment because the equipment can simply be driven onto and off of the vessel rather than being loaded in more complicated ways. Containers are great for static equipment and 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. Often, this option can provide savings to shippers in the form of lower freight costs and duty rates. However, 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. No matter what the situation is, K International Transport can help shippers find the best mode of overseas transportation for construction equipment.

With an experienced freight forwarding company like K International Transport, shippers can rest assured that their construction equipment can be transported to Morocco safely and efficiently and for an affordable price. K International Transport will help clients through every part of the shipping process. Other than having a reliable and experienced international shipping company by your side, you can also rest assured that Port Tangier, Morocco, is just as efficient and trustworthy. Port Tangier is an industrial port complex located on the Strait of Gibraltar on Morocco’s northern coast. As the largest port in the region, Port Tangier can serve a market of millions of consumers through industrial and commercial-free zones. The port recently underwent construction and renovation, which included the addition of two new container terminals. With these new port facilities, the port has reached full capacity and can accept eight million containers, seven million passengers, 700,000 trucks, two million vehicles, and ten million metric tons of oil products. All in all, Port Tangier is extremely well-suited to handle shipments of construction equipment from the United States.

After all the documents are prepared and the equipment is ready to be shipped, clients working with K International Transport can request a price quote for the shipment. To get a quote, visit the rate request page or contact K International Transport by phone, email, or Skype. There is certain information about the cargo you must know to get an accurate rate, including the dimensions of the equipment which consist of the length, width, height, and weight. K International Transport will also need to know the year, make, and model of the heavy equipment. You should also decide which port you will need to ship to, which method you may want to use (RO/RO or container), and whether you will need inland trucking and transportation services for door-to-port transport or dismantling services. 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. Some required documents include the title of the equipment, the identification of the shipper and the consignee, and a power of attorney form. Once the process has started, K International Transport will take care of their client’s cargo every step of the way.
