International Car Shipping: RoRo (Roll-on/Roll-off) and Container Shipping are the two most frequently used options for shipping vehicles overseas. RORO can be less expensive for single car shippers, however there are advantages with Containers for vehicles, goods and auto-parts shippers.  Both options provide each individual shipper a good solution for their business needs. Both services require the same Customs rules to be fulfilled per vehicle to be eligible for export.

RORO: Vehicles/Trucks/Equipment typically need to be in running or rollable condition because it has to be driven or towed on and off the ship. Offers greater flexibility and lower fees all around. *Non Drivable or Rollable units are subject to additional shipping fees. No personal/additional belongings are permitted inside vehicles shipped as RoRo.

Containers: Cars are stored in closed containers placed onto ships. The overall cost is higher and requires more planning, however the per vehicle cost can be lower than RORO (depending on container arrangements). *Vehicles do not have to be in running condition to be shipped in a container.  Containers permit spare tires and other items to be shipped along with the car. Depending on the container and included vehicles size, shippers can add boxes, goods, furniture, etc as loading permits.

Shippers should always consider all costs when booking and check with their clearing agent at destination.  Ghanem can help arrange the best inland transport costs for cars to their closest port option for RORO or Container shipping. We have bookings with all major carriers to West Africa, South America, Europe and the Middle East.  For Cost estimates for both RORO & Containers – please contact our team: customerservice@gforwarding.com . When considering your options, it’s not just a one size fits all solution. Ghanem Forwarding has access to many tools to help you find the correct shipping option for your business.
