Your mind will be put at ease because we explain everything in detail. Our clients include construction companies, manufacturers, agencies and private owners.

This method is often cheaper (shipping disassembled machinery) because it is considered a shipment of parts — not a fully assembled machine.

The arrival port in Togo is Lome, which is where your designated pick up person will retrieve and sign for the equipment. They will pay in person for Tax or Duty.

Shipping Method for Shipping Heavy Machinery to Togo
RoRo method is what is used for heavy machinery shipments to Togo. Our shipping vessels depart every week from the five U.S. seaports mentioned above to the one port in Togo.
RoRo Shipping (Roll On/Roll Off)
This is the best way of transporting construction vehicles, boats, motorcycles, motorhomes, campers, trailers, and buses overseas, with set departure and arrival dates that you can rely on. The equipment must roll onto and off of the ship, which is constructed inside like a big parking garage.
Do You Need Marine Insurance?
While recommended, it’s not required. We just want to remind you that if you don’t get the insurance and damage occurs to your shipment in transit, you are responsible for paying for that out of pocket. That said, you don’t have to shell out money for 100% coverage if you find it too expensive; you can cover the machinery for 50% or 75% of the equipment’s value instead.
We offer 1.75% of the value of the machinery for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery. Coverage begins when your machinery is loaded onto the ship until it arrives at the port to be collected.
