Port Bremerhaven, on Germany’s northwestern coast, is one of the most common ports for vintage and classic cars, automobiles, and vehicles, and K International Transport can ship there from almost any port in the United States. States include but are not limited to New York, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, and California! If the cargo is located outside of a port city, K International Transport offers inland trucking and transportation services to transport the vehicle to a port before it is shipped overseas!
The port in Bremerhaven is the 4th largest container port in Europe, but handles more cars than any other European port, and is the 16th largest in the world. It has 14 berths, can store up to 120,000 cars, and handles over 5 million TEU annually. The port also contains three main terminals: container, auto, and fruit. Lastly, the port has a large capacity for logistics and storage space, making it an excellent place to do business. Groundbreaking work is taking place in Bremerhaven, and its influence on Europe and the world is only growing. When shipping to Germany, know you are working with many trusted partners.
One of the most common reasons for shipping to Germany is for military members. It is important to note that military vehicles have more regulations regarding the type of cargo, length of stay, and more. Tools that often accompany these vehicles must be limited to $200 in total value, and fees will be added with each additional car that is shipped. In order for the cargo to make it to the military base, remove all personal items and empty the tank.
Cars can be shipped via roll-on/roll-off (Ro/Ro), container shipping, or air freight services. Depending on the quality, age, and type of cargo, each method has its benefits. Ro/Ro is the most common and convenient method, as the car is rolled directly on and off the ship. Container shipping encloses each car separately, and the cars are blocked and braced securely. Lastly, air freight ensures the most secure transport and is often only used for very precious cargo. Cars are strapped down and fully wrapped to prevent any damage. Examples and more information can be found on the general international automobile shipping page.
The last step is acquiring the necessary documentation. This often includes detailed information about the cargo, proof of entitlement, a power of attorney, and any documents specific to German customs. Ready to start the journey? Visit our rate request page for an international shipping rate!
