How to Ship Heavy Machinery From USA to Sweden
Arranging to ship heavy machinery such as construction vehicles from the USA to Sweden doesn’t have to be difficult. The team at Ship Overseas is the one to rely on to get the job done. But to get you a free quote, first, we’ll need the Year/Make/Model, Pickup Zip Code or Departure Port, and Destination Country, in this case, Sweden. With us behind you, the process will be smooth, affordable, and easy. That’s because we frequently work with construction companies, manufacturers, and private agencies like yours and know the unique requirements you have.
We also provide professional dismantling services at an extra cost so your equipment can fit more easily into the containers. You can save import duty fees when shipping disassembled machinery as opposed to fully assembled machinery because this is considered to be shipping parts.
Examples of the heavy machinery we ship to Sweden from the USA include:
Departure and Arrival Ports
The seven departure ports from the USA to Sweden include:
The one arrival port in Sweden is Gothenburg — the largest port in the Nordic countries, which is where you will have your designated person pick up and pay for your equipment on arrival in cash for Tax or Duty.
How Much Does it Cost to Ship Heavy Machinery to Sweden?
This is impossible to say across the board, as equipment of this size and scope varies greatly by type and weight, plus it doesn’t come in standard sizes like cars do (i.e., compact, mid-sized, full-sized, small SUV, large SUV). One factor that may affect price: it’s generally less expensive to ship out of the East Coast than the West Coast.
Estimated Transit Time
It takes five weeks to ship RoRo from the East Coast and six to seven weeks to ship RoRo from the West Coast.

Shipping Method for Shipping Heavy Machinery to Sweden
Our shipping vessels depart weekly from all seven U.S. seaports listed above to the one port in Sweden. Our sole shipping method to Sweden at this time for heavy machinery is the RoRo method.
RoRo Shipping (Roll On/Roll Off)
This is the method we utilize for shipping construction vehicles, boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, trailers, and buses. This popular option is popular for a reason: its cost-effectiveness and efficiency, as well as reliability in departure and arrival dates. The inside of the ship is similar to the ramps of a parking garage.
Do You Need Marine Insurance?
No one will make you get it but we highly recommend insuring your heavy machinery. Cautionary note: when you fail to purchase insurance, you are responsible for paying out of pocket for any damages. While rare, it can happen with rough seas.
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 the time it is collected and signed for at the destination. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery. You can, of course, choose to cover your machinery for 50% or 75% of the equipment’s value rather than 100% if you wish.
