International truck shipping can look different in various ways, but no matter what, K International Transport, a leader in worldwide auto shipping, is here to help. Maybe you are looking to ship a large amount of construction equipment including bulldozers, mixers, or dump trucks.

Shipping Methods, Customs, and Prices

Each port has specific instructions, but K International Transport works closely with port operations to ensure a smooth process. One key step is determining the shipping method. Roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO), container shipping, and air freight services are all viable truck options. RO/RO is the most common and reliable as the car is directly driven onto the ship, creating easy entry and exit points. Container shipping has no limits and gives the car its own enclosed area. It is usually used for non-operational trucks and takes longer. Lastly, for air freight shipping, the car is secured to a plate and thoroughly wrapped for protection.

After determining the method, ensure all the necessary documents are in order. While these are also dependent on a port’s specific customs, there are few that are always required. These include identifying information, title certificate, registration, bill of sale, power of attorney, insurance forms, and safety compliance.

Another factor in the process is the price. Although shipping trucks can be expensive, K International Transport can offer the best deals for the transport of high-heavy equipment overseas. General factors include distance, mode of transportation, and season. Additionally, the dimensions, weight, and shipping method will all play a role in determining the final cost.
