20 Ft Or 40ft Containerised Car Shipping:

Cars are loaded and secured in the container to prevent any movement during transit. Containers are loaded with your car only and this is then opened at destination to ensure security.

Alternatively, you can ship your vehicle in a container from Felixstowe or Southampton all the way through to Zambia. This is the more expensive option but it is hassle free in the sense that you do not have to go and collect the vehicle yourself from the port in Dar-es-Salaam or Walvis Bay. As a rule, we only allow loading of one vehicle into a 20ft container and two vehicles into a 40ft container. You can load your vehicles with personal effects if you wish, but they must be loaded inside the vehicle and not obstructing the driving functions, and they may not be hanging out of windows or loaded in the container around the vehicle. If you have any questions please feel free to ask and we will clarify this for you.

Please check that all rules and regulations for importing into Zambia have been consulted and adhered to prior to arranging shipment with us. You can get this information from clearing agents in Zambia or from the Zambian Embassy in London, who will either advise or redirect you as needed.

Destination Clearing Agents

We are able to recommend clearing agents at both discharge ports.

Marine Insurance

We are able to offer marine insurance for all your shipments to Zambia, on average the rate is 1.5% of the value you wish to insure for.
