How to Ship Heavy Machinery From USA to Africa
People who want to ship heavy machinery from the USA to a country in Africa may assume the process is confusing or difficult. Not so. Ship Overseas can coordinate the logistics and take care of all the details for you. From pricing to ports, we know how to ensure your shipment gets where it needs to go. We can start you off with a free quote. To do that, we will need the Year/Make/Model, Pickup Zip Code or Departure Port, and Destination Country.
To help you save on import duty fees, we can professionally dismantle your machinery first (for an added cost). This makes it simpler to fit your equipment inside the containers. Shipping disassembled machinery is often more affordable because it is considered a shipment of parts rather than a fully assembled machine.
Our team caters to construction companies, manufacturers, agencies and private owners who want to ship their heavy machinery to Africa from the USA.

How Much Does it Cost to Ship Heavy Machinery to Africa?
Providing general prices on shipping heavy machinery to Africa is difficult for several reasons. Not only are there huge variations in type and weight of equipment, but heavy machinery doesn’t fit into typical size categories like cars do (i.e., compact, mid-sized, full-sized, small SUV, large SUV).
Also, your cost will depend on which departure port your shipment is leaving from. We ask that you call us for the most up-to-date rates possible.
Shipping Method for Shipping Heavy Machinery to Africa
We offer the RoRo method for heavy machinery shipments to Africa, with vessels departing every week from many major U.S. seaports to a variety of countries in Africa.
RoRo Shipping Method
Just as the name implies, your shipped heavy machinery must roll onto and off of the ship. That’s because our ships are similar to a parking garage inside. We use this method for overseas transportation of construction vehicles, boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, trailers, and buses. With set departure and arrival dates, this method has a reliable timetable, kind of like an airport.
Departure Ports in USA
Although we ship to many African countries, the final destination may not be the port of arrival. For example, if we ship to Kenya, the final destination may be DRC, Uganda, or South Sudan, or another surrounding country. In this case, we recommend that you employ the services of a customs broker in the final destination country so that clearance from the port country can be obtained without taxes having to be paid.
Do You Need Marine Insurance?
We believe it’s always a good idea but the decision is up to you. Just remember that you will have to pay out of pocket for any damage that happens if you neglect to get the insurance. Damage is rare, but it has happened, especially during hurricane season between June and November. That said, you may cover your machinery for 50% or 75% of the equipment’s value rather than the full 100%.
We offer 1.75% of the value of the machinery for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Coverage begins when your machinery is loaded onto the ship until your pickup person signs for it at the arrival port. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery.
