Finding the best city to buy a car over the internet is a difficult problem to solve. Naturally, it is best to choose a city closest to the ports where the vehicle is going to be shipped. The reason being is usually the vehicles have to be trucked by either the auto dealership or the freight forwarder to the departure port. The further away it is, the more the truck charges will be. Another factor is whether the vehicle is on a popular trucking route or is it out of the way making it more difficult for the truck to get to the origin. (Continue reading…)

As a freight forwarder, our customers occasionally have to deal with the hassle of clearing US Customs. Customs clearance has to be obtained whether shipping containers or using the Roll on Roll off (RoRo) service.
It is much easier to clear US Customs vehicle inspections when using RoRo shipping because the customs agent just needs to look through the window to see what’s in the car.

What makes the process fast is that nothing is permitted to be in the car when shipping via RoRo. The trunk can only have the spare tire and jack. This is mandatory for all RoRo shipping lines.
