Our Shipping Methods

We offer three types of shipping: RO/RO, Full Container Load and Consolidated. The choice of shipping method depends on what and where you are shipping, your budget and your preferred delivery time.

Let’s look at them in detail so you can decide which is your most suitable method.

1) RO/RO Shipping

RO/RO (roll-on/roll-off) shipping is one of the most popular ways to ship wheeled cargo like cars, trucks and trailers. RO/RO vessels are designed to carry cargo that can be driven on and off with ease; unlike other shipping methods where vehicles are lifted with the help of a crane.  It’s considered the perfect, safe and cost-effective option to send heavy equipment and vehicles that don’t fit inside a container.

2) Full Container Load Shipping

Full Container Load (FCL) shipping means your shipment takes up a full container. It is ideal for sending other items along with your vehicle as you have the entire container to yourself. With our 40-foot container, you can safely load up to four cars, instead of booking two 20-feet containers, thus saving time and money. Our FCL services include delivering empty ready-to-load containers directly to your home. There, you can load your car, or any other vehicle, and seal the container for shipping.

3) Consolidated Container Shipping

Consolidated – a.k.a. Shared or Less Than Container Load (LCL) – shipping is a flexible method where customers send their vehicle in a container shared by multiple shippers. You can transport smaller cargos from Canada to Italy or other international locations without booking the entire container.

Instead, LCL shipping charges are based on the volume of the container space, which is calculated per cubic metre, thus making it a cost-effective option. Partnerships with port terminals and operators enable us to provide reliable freight forwarding services at affordable rates. Our existing customers find our services convenient, safe and error-free. Our team will amiably and readily answer any questions you may have regarding insurance, payment and the status of your shipment so you enjoy hassle-free shipping. Whether you’re moving to Italy or sending your vehicle to a loved one who lives there, it’s important that it be delivered carefully and on time. Trust Viamar Scilla to transport your automobile internationally while ensuring security and timely delivery. Contact our logistics pros for seamless transportation and rest assured that your automobile is in safe hands.
