CARGO Shipping

CARGO Shipping Services from the UK

We offer affordable shipping/export services to international destinations from the UK. Your car/cargo can be shipped through different methods:

20 Foot and 40 Foot Container Shipping Services Container Shipping.

We offer international removals through a container shipping service. This service involves exporting vehicles or personal effects overseas in a private container. A 20-foot Container has room for only one vehicle and a few personal items, and 40 foot accommodates two cars and a few personal items.

You will be required to deliver the vehicle/cargo to the port/ warehouse or we can arrange transportation but it is charged depending on the distance. Loading for shipment is mostly done at the depot or we can deliver the container to customers residence to load the cargo (3hrs given, additional hour charged at £50 rate). The container can also be left with you for a few days on request.

Containers are slightly more expensive than the RO-RO method of transport overseas due to safety elements and because you are paying for the hire of the whole container. Transportation of the container to your address for loading in the UK is also available on request.

Roll on Roll off Vehicle Shipping Services (Ro/Ro)

RoRo shipping involves transport using vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as cars automobiles, vans, trucks, trailers, and heavy plant types of machinery driven on and off the ship on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter. RORO vessels have built-in ramps that allow the cargo to be efficiently rolled

RORO vessels have built-in ramps that allow the cargo to be efficiently rolled on and off the vessel when in port. RoRo shipment is the cheapest overseas shipping for vehicles compared to container shipment. We ship vehicles to most left and right hand drive countries.

Ports of Tilbury, Sheerness, Southampton, Felixstowe, Liverpool serve ocean-going roll-on, roll-off (RORO) vehicle ferry services. International vessels are purpose-built car carriers, used by manufacturers to deliver brand new and used vehicles around the world. Cars are protected from the elements in enclosed car decks and are secured by straps and chocks.
Service frequency is usually once or twice a month and there can be useful cost savings on some routes over container shipment.

Groupage Shipping Services

Groupage shipping applies to a shipment that does not justify the exclusive use of its own container. In many cases, cargo will only occupy a small part of a container so we will combine it with another customer and the cost will be split according to its volume.

A groupage shipment contains goods from two or more suppliers so it brings considerable cost savings. Cargo is grouped according to volume, type of merchandise, condition and destination. Each lot is tagged individually so there can be no error.
