So, if you are looking to ship heavy machinery, construction equipment or farming equipment overseas, turn to the experts at Ship Overseas, your overseas shipping resource in Europe, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

We also provide professional dismantling services at an additional cost if you need it so your equipment will fit into our containers with ease. By shipping disassembled machinery, you could enjoy two benefits:

  • Save the import duty fees
  • Your shipment would be considered as shipping parts, instead of fully assembled machinery

When shipping heavy machinery, our main method of transport is via RoRo shipping. This means that each machine can be driven on and off the ship for the most cost effective and efficient means of transport. All heavy machines are tied down below deck for optimal protection against external elements. Compared with container shipping, RoRo provides reliable departure and arrival dates, an added benefit.


Plus, RoRo shipping is the preferred shipping method for heavy machinery manufacturers to ship their own equipment.


We highly recommend that you insure your heavy machinery cargo with marine insurance, on a first dollar basis for losses incurred in transit. Thus, we offer full cover marine insurance to protect against loss or damage from the time your heavy machinery is loaded onto the vessel for shipment at a rate of 1.75% of the value you wish to insure for.
