RORO Shipping to Tema, Ghana
RoRo shipping is the cheapest method of shipping vehicles to Ghana, Tema or Takoradi ports. RoRo ships are vessels that are specially designed to ship wheeled cargo such as cars, trucks or heavy machinery. They have in-built ramps that allow vehicle to be driven on or off the ship. The vehicles are driven on to the ship almost like it was a parking garage. Once loaded on the RoRo vessel, each vehicle is tied down securely in its designated spot. This shipping method has proved highly efficient and extremely cost-efficient.
RoRo ships require that the vehicle is able to drive up and down the ramp. This means the car must be able to function properly and make it up the ramp without problems. Once the car is aboard the ship, it will be strapped to the deck of the ship to keep it from shifting around while sailing across the ocean.
Absolutely nothing is permitted to be inside the vehicle. Many people buy cars over the internet and ship them to Tema, Ghana. RoRo car shipping is by far the least expensive way to ship a car from USA to Ghana.
Container Shipping to Tema, Ghana
Container shipping means that you can export your car in either a 20ft or 40ft container. It is more expensive but your vehicle would be secure in its own container. Also with container shipping, you can put personal items when exporting to Tema or Takoradi.
You can ship you car from USA to Ghana in an exclusive or shared container. With an exclusive container, your cars are the only ones packed in the container. In a shared container shipment, you share the container with other cars that are being shipped from the same port to Ghana.
Container shipments are not available from all of the U.S. ports.
Container metod is usually more expensive than Roll on Roll off shipping. If you pack personal goods in your car, then you will need to submit a packing list of the goods. The packing list must itemize the goods by category and must include values. As with Roll on Roll of shipments, we will need a Title of Ownership with no liens on the Title.
Shared Container Shipping (LCL)
With this method, multiple vehicles are loaded into a container at a warehouse. To leave the warehouse for departure, the container must be completely filled with vehicles. the shipping costs are split among the vehicles loaded into the container. Can be the only cost-effective method in departure or arrival ports where the RoRo method is not available. Customers are allowed to ship additional items in the truck or the backseat of their vehicle, advantage container shipping has compared to RoRo.
Exclusive Container Shipping (FCL)
Exclusive container means that a vehicle is shipped in an exclusive container. This is also a good option if vehicle owners want to ship their personal belongings along with the vehicle. Full container method is used when shipping multiple cars or expensive vehicles or you need to ship non-operational vehicles because RoRo vessels ship only running vehicles. We recommend that all shipments be insured for transit cargo insurance (marine insurance).
