RORO Shipping

RORO , or ‘Roll-On/Roll-Off’ shipping, is one of the most popular shipping methods. It delivers vehicles faster than other solutions. Unlike lift-on/lift-off shipping, where cargo is lifted and loaded onto a ship with the help of a crane, RORO shipping is when vehicles are loaded and unloaded on their own wheels using built-in ramps on the vessels.

There are several advantages to choosing the RORO method to ship cars and other heavy vehicles. That includes speed, as vehicles can be driven on and off the ship when docked, thus saving time by expediting the shipping process.

Our RORO shipping services are ideal for larger vehicles that don’t fit on containers. We ensure that problems related to heavy cargo are identified and solved quickly so your auto transport experience is smooth and cost effective.

Full Container Loads

FCL (Full Container Loads) is another secure shipping method that allows you to ship several vehicles in an enclosed container. When you select Viamar’s FCL shipping service, the empty container is delivered right to your door so you can load it with your vehicles.

There are two main types of containers that we provide for FCL shipping – 20 feet and 40 feet. You can load up to four automobiles in the 40-foot container. We also provide two weeks of free storage at our warehouse to help you store your vehicles while you’re busy organizing.

This is the preferred solution for customers who want to ship more than one vehicle securely. Get in touch with our team to book your shipment.

Consolidated/Shared Container

If you don’t have enough cargo to fill an entire container, our consolidated container service is your best bet. With our shared container shipping solution, you can ship your vehicle without booking an entire container.

As the name suggests, you share a container with other shippers so the cost is distributed amongst all parties. Unlike FCL, which usually charges a flat rate per container, Consolidated shipping is based on the volume, set in cubic meters, thus making it a simpler, more cost-effective method of shipping for smaller vehicles.

When you choose Viamar’s consolidated container shipping service, you can rest assured that you’ve hired a dependable auto transporter providing quality services at competitive rates.

Shipping Insurance

Marine cargo insurance covers the loss or damage of shipments in transit. With Viamar’s international shipping services, you can choose shipping insurance to cover potential financial losses. It’s advisable to purchase marine cargo insurance from us before shipping your vehicles as it offers several benefits. Some of them are:

  • A complete insurance policy covering all risks and loss.
  • All types of insurance available from a single freight provider.
  • The best marine insurance rates within the industry.
  • Peace of mind that you will be compensated for any loss.
