Hello again from the team at Ship Overseas Inc. As the landscape of international freight forwarding continues to expand Ship Overseas has expanded our suite of shipping services to include additional domestic and international shipping for over-sized machinery, heavy machinery and breakbulk shipments.


As we expand our shipping services within this specific category, we’ve found that our clients were looking for more reliable and sizable shipping options when shipping over-sized machinery and heavy machinery in the US and overseas.


RoRo Shipping has quickly become the go to shipping option when shipping these larger machinery items. Now the question is why do you think that a variety of different industries choose RoRo Shipping for their breakbulk shipments?


What do military, power, oil and gas, rail and aviation sectors have in common? Other than being global billion-dollar industries, they’re also all producers of large and outsized equipment that regularly needs shipping overseas.


RoRo Ships are the most breakbulk-capable vessels. These extraordinary shipping vessels have the capacity to ship over-sized and heavy machinery as well as equipment that can be up to 6.1 meters high,

up to 12 meters wide and up to 400 tones in total weight. Shipping breakbulk involves several logistical challenges – that is the risk of cargo damage, potential for missed connections or delay penalties to name a few. The size and functionality of these RoRo Shipping vessels reduces the risk of cargo damage.


RoRo Shipping Method is also popular for shipping heavy machinery because, it can be offered at a lower price, has an established schedule of service, the size of vessels increase quality and safety during the shipment, and the cargo is protected from the changes in climate and weather.

Important info to Ship a Car Overseas:
  • No car can leave USA if it has a lien on it. What does this mean? Your car must be paid in full. The only people who can ship a car overseas and still carry a lien on the car are US Military and Government employees/contractors. For those people a letter of authorization from the lender will need to be issued to pass US Customs. Otherwise the car may be considered stolen.
  • A clear Title of Ownership with no Liens on the Title.
  • If you bought a car new, then your name must be listed on the front of the Title as the registered owner.
  • If the vehicle has been sold, then both the Seller and Buyer have to sign the back of the Title in the spaces as detailed on the back of the Title.
  • For safety reasons, the vehicle cannot have more than a ¼ tank of gas.
Import Duty for Destination Country:
  • Import duty is NOT collected by Ship Overseas. It must be paid at the arrival port by whoever is picking up the car. We wrote a blog post about vehicle import duty here. It talks about how to find out import duty for your country.
Travel & Living Abroad:
  • Most countries will allow a traveler to temporarily import their car for up to 6 months. After the 6 months is up, import duty will be charged. For many travelers going to Europe and taking their car, a deposit is paid up front. When the car goes back to it's destination country, the deposit is refunded. If a person has lived in USA for 1 or more years, most countries will allow that person to bring their car back duty free! The car must not have any liens on it. Please check with your Customs Department first.
