RoRo shipping is the most common method of shipping heavy machinery and equipment. RoRo shipping means the unit or equipment will be Rolled On the vessel and Rolled Off the vessel. If your unit is self-propelled (wheel loader, motor grader, excavator, etc) terminal personnel will operate your unit and load it safely into the vessel.
If your unit is not self-propelled (flat-bed trailer, grain cart, etc) then your unit will be towed into the vessel. All of our RoRo shipments are stored safely below deck.
Please note, that some shipping lines will not accept non-running driveable machinery (wheel loaders, motor graders, excavators, etc).
The required documentation to ship your heavy machinery or equipment (for customs clearance) is an invoice or bill of sale from the seller. This document must show full seller and buyer information, unit year/make/model/serial number and it must show a 0 balance.
Depending on which port your unit ships out of the document will have to be notarized.
The price of ocean freight is based on the overall cubic meter of the unit. To get a price quote on shipping, please provide us with the dimensions (Length x Width x Height) and weight of the unit.
You may deliver RoRo cargo to the port yourself, but as a courtesy to ocean freight shipping we also provide transportation services from the unit’s current location to the closest port. To get a price on trucking please provide the unit’s current locations (city and zip/postal code).
All of our price quotes include the necessary charges to export your unit from the US or Canada, but do not include any destination fees.
For more information on destination fees (Import duties & taxes/import procedures) please contact the embassy/consulate of the country you are shipping to. If you are in the destination country, please contact your Customs department.
