We offer weekly sailings from ports in the USA to Panama

RoRo shipping is the only car shipping method available from USA to Panama. Our shipping vessels depart on a weekly basis from U.S. seaports to Panama. We offer additional services, to meet all your auto shipping needs to Panama:

RoRo Shipping

RoRo ships are vessels built for shipping wheeled cargo, more specifically – shipping motor cars and motorcycles. The vehicles are driven on to the ship almost like it was a parking garage. The name Roll-on/Roll-off comes from the fact that vehicles roll-on/roll-off the ramp, which is how they are driven on and off the ship. By contrast, lift-on/lift-off (LoLo) vessels require the vehicles to be lifted by a crane.

Once loaded on the RoRo vessel, each vehicle is tied down securely in its designated spot (as shown in the picture).

This shipping method has proved highly efficient and extremely cost-effective. When compared to container shipping, it has an additional advantage: it provides reliable departure and arrival dates. The ship’s departure and arrival schedule runs almost like an airline flight schedule.

Also, RoRo shipping is the preferred shipping method for new car manufacturers to ship their own vehicles. In addition to the exact departure and arrival dates, RoRo shipping means that all vehicles are tied down below deck and have protective covers. That way, the vehicles have all the protection against external elements.

Marine Insurance

Ship Overseas recommends that all shipments be insured for transit cargo insurance (marine insurance) on a first dollar basis for losses incurring in transit.

We offer FULL COVER Marine Insurance against Loss or Damage from the time your vehicle is loaded onto the Vessel for shipment at a rate of 1.5% of the value you wish to Insure for.

Important info to Ship a Car to Panama:
  • All cars that are imported into Panama incur fairly high import/duty taxes. The only time these high import/duty tax won’t occur is if the owner of the car is a member of an international organization, a U.S. contractor or an accredited diplomat.
  • Taxes are payable when the car is delivered. If the car is going to be delivered to one of the surrounding countries, the taxes have to be paid at the destination country.
  • 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.
