  • New Multi-Story Car Park in Port of Southampton

    A new multi-story car park was constructed in the Port of Southampton, UK, and is in control of Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) shipping line. The newly built car park is named Prince of Wales and is the sixth multi-story car park in the Port of Southampton. It’s also the largest car park in control of WWL.

    The Prince of Wales car park will have the capacity of 3,400 spaces. It will enhance WWL Southampton’s ability to meet the current demands in volume and as well as future growth.

    Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics is contracted with Ship Overseas for providing RoRo shipping services and is our top shipping line; 26.1% of Ship Overseas RoRo shipping has been done through WWL since January 1, 2017.

    With the increase in capacity of WWL Southampton, Ship Overseas will also be able to accommodate the growing demand for car shipping to and from the UK.

  • Ship Overseas’ Shipping Volume to Central America Rises

    Ship Overseas marked the middle of the third business quarter with a growth in car shipping volume to Central America, compared to the volume recorded within the same time period in 2016. Some of the countries where the growth was recorded include: Guatemala (311% growth), Costa Rica (63%) and Puerto Rico (53%).

    The increase in the shipping volume to Central America is primarily to be owed to Ship Overseas’ shift in shipping alliances, as well as a change of marketing strategy. Jack Friedman, President of Ship Overseas, says that the company’s website integration with the online platform also played a significant part. Namely, the integration makes it easier to track car shipping activities and boosts customer convenience.

    Ship Overseas provides RoRo shipping services to Central America, whose volume is likely to go up further by the end of 2017.

  • Ship Overseas Bets on RoRo Shipping for Business Growth

    Ship Overseas is eyeing business growth opportunities and investing in the enhancement of RoRo shipping service volume. The company’s announcing its plan to double the volume of car shipping via RoRo by the end of 2017.

    Car shipping overseas and RoRo shipping in particular have been recognized by Ship Overseas as segments with immense potential for business growth. Namely, the company had the highest volume of motor vehicle shipping via RoRo in its second quarter finalized in June 2017. Compared to 2016, there was a 20% increase in volume.

    Ship Overseas is confident that the enhancement will contribute to sustainable business growth, given the collaboration with Höegh Autoliners shipping line, a General Motors 2016 Supplier of the Year, with which Ship Overseas is contracted for providing RoRo shipping services.

  • Shipping your car overseas if you are in the military

    When you receive your PCS orders you’re entitled to ship your privately owned vehicle (POV) from or between locations overseas. If you wish to ship your POV overseas it must be authorized on your orders. Alternate ports may be used if approved by the military traffic management command (MTMC). Requests to use an alternate port should be addressed to the Personal Property Shipping Office (PPSO).

    Restrictions
    Your owned or leased POV may be shipped to your new duty station at the government’s expense. If you want to make your own arrangements to ship your own POV, consult your sponsor and transportation office for any restrictions. You may have to pay an import duty on a second POV. Your local transportation office has information on the host country’s restrictions.

  • Does You Vehicle Meet Import Restrictions?

    Never assume that the vehicle you currently own can be shipped to your post of assignment. Many countries place import restrictions on vehicles based on age. Confirm with the Management Officer at post that the automobile you plan to take will pass customs import requirements and is acceptable and appropriate for the terrain. For European postings, large SUVs may not be able to be parked in embassy-assigned parking garages. Also ask your post whether you will need to ship spare parts. Purchase spare parts if post has indicated that you will need them.
