Automotive

We offer a comprehensive range of services, to satisfy your International Automotive Shipping needs, port to port or door to door. No matter what your requirement, Trade Freight International Ltd is there to assist.

As an international car shipping company we offer different methods of importing and exporting for our customers. These 3 different methods are;

Roll on and Roll off – RORO

Roll-on/roll-off (RORO) are ferries designed to carry wheeled goods such as Cars, Lorries, Trucks, and Trailers.

RORO ferries & ships have built-in Ramps which allow the cargo to be efficiently “rolled on” and “rolled off” the vessel when in port.

The unloading of this type of ship for shipping vehicles overseas requires special docks. On arrival at the destination port, the cars are offloaded from the vessel by driving it out on ramps aligned with the cargo dock.
Please note that not all ports have offered this service so please enquire with one of our agents beforehand.

FCL container

For those customers who wish for their cars to be shipped in FCL containers, we have you covered. We can position the container at your site or at our warehouse. Having the container at your site will require you to load / lash and secure. When the container reaches the destination you will be called and only you or your customer will open the container. Understandably, this type of shipping becomes slightly more expensive because you are paying for the full container even though you may not be using the full space it offers.

LCL container

A less costly way of shipping a car overseas is to ship it in a high cube container. This system loads up to 4 cars into a single container. The shared container method means that the cost is split over the vehicles in the container. this can take a little longer as the vehicles has to be checked by the loading company but is a lot more cost effective.

Corona Update

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses.
