  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
