RO/RO vs. Container Shipping

When transporting cars to the Middle East, Africa, or Latin America, clients must determine the best way to ship. K International Transport can help! With efficient and affordable international automobile shipping services clients can transport automobiles via container shipping or Roll-on/ roll-off (RO/RO) shipping.

Clients interested in shipping automobiles that are very valuable or non-running should transport them via 20-foot or 40-foot containers. Containers are also great options for those who want to transport certain personal effects along with their automobile or ambulance because clients can load the personal items in the container alongside the car(s).

RO/RO is an efficient and affordable option for those who are shipping vehicles that are running, wheeled, and self-propelled. It is often less expensive than container shipping and less is needed from the client to get started. With RO/RO vessels, the automobile can simply be driven onto the vessel, and costs, saving on loading and unloading. However, shippers cannot have any items in the car, so this option is not ideal for those who are set on transporting personal effects along with their car.

Both options are safe, efficient, and reliable, and the choice depends on the particular client and their circumstances.

Necessary Documents for International Shipping

Before the shipping process can begin, clients need to submit certain documents and information to the freight forwarding company with all the necessary documentation needed to schedule a successful overseas shipment. Shippers and consignees will be asked for several documents prior to shipping, including:

  • the original title of the car(s) or ambulance
  • their full name, address, and photo identification
  • the consignee’s full name, address, identification, and contact information
  • prepayment in full (once all the costs are known)
  • proof of the commercial value of the automobile
  • a signed power of attorney form to allow the freight forwarding company to legally manage the shipment

Additionally, the company will need to know the desired date of shipment and the car’s location in the United States. Once the procedural steps are taken and completed, the automobile(s) can be loaded onto a vessel and shipped overseas to a port in Latin America, the Middle East, or Africa. For clients that are unable to transport their automobile from their location in the United States to the domestic port closest to them, K International Transport can set up reliable and efficient inland trucking and transportation services. With these services, a reputable moving company will pick up the vehicle from your door and move it safely to the port in the United States.

Requirements for Ambulances and Other Automobiles

Regulations imposed on imported automobiles/cars/vehicles depend on the destination country and customs. These regulations often dictate the maximum age of cars that may be imported, how clean automobiles must be, how much gasoline has to remain in the tank, the size of engines, taxes on vintage and classic automobiles, and what can and cannot be left in automobiles during the shipping process. Luckily, clients often do not need to know specific details regarding these rules and regulations, which can be tedious. With a reliable and experienced international shipping company like K International Transport, a knowledgeable agent can inform clients of possible issues before they arise.

Although transporting ambulances can be more expensive because of their larger size and weight, K International Transport gives clients the best possible rates for international automobile shipping services!
