Other Considerations and International Shipping Logistics

Sometimes if a unit is large or heavy, one must acquire permits to transport it. K International Transport can handle this for you. Once we get the information for your shipment and all the necessary documents from you, we will begin the process. We’ll start by reaching out to our specialized network of heavy equipment haulers, warehouses, and first-class steamship lines to bring you an affordable and accurate international shipping rate. to ship your excavator, bulldozer crawler tractor, and other equipment. Our team handles excavator, bulldozer, crawler, tractor, and other heavy equipment shipping on a regular basis. We know how to ship your cargo safely, as well as arrange reliable inland heavy hauling and step deck transport.

One of the first steps in international construction machinery shipping is deciding on the best option for shipping. Often that will be roll-on/roll-off shipping when transporting heavy equipment overseas. Roll-on/roll-off (RORO) is generally the easiest way to ship an excavator internationally. However, for cargo that is not mobile or self-propelled, container shipping is the way to go.

Please note that with container shipping services, the client must dismantle the equipment to load it into the container, and then reassemble it once it arrives at the international port. If the client is not able to do this, dismantling services can be purchased. Dismantling the unit is important for loading in order for the pieces to fit inside a container. International transport for an excavator and its parts this way can be a far more affordable way to ship your cargo. Containerized transport also allows for more departure options.
In the end, choosing a shipping option comes down to the preferences and budget of the client, along with what is most suitable for the equipment.
