Hassle Free Car Shipping to Kingston

RoRo – Roll on Roll off
This is where cars are driven onto the ship and driven off at the destination port. We offer a regular service on RoRo from Southampton or Dover Port in the UK. These ships resemble floating underground car parks.
Container – 20FT or 40FT
Containers are a more safer method of shipment, as the vehicles are stored in a dedicated container which will be opened in your or your agents presence in Kingston.

Vehicle Shipped – What’s Next?
Once your vehicle is shipped we shall notify you, and furthermore you will be sent a draft Bill of Lading. It is critical that you check the details on the Draft Bill of Lading and ensure that everything is correct and complete.
The Bill of Lading is a really important document and its contents are critical in ensuring that you have a smooth release of your cargo at the discharge port.
Bill of Lading Approved – Telex Release or Original Bill of Lading?
You will often be asked by our documentation team whether you wish to arrange a Telex Release or require the Original Bill of Lading. What is the difference?
Telex Release: This is where a copy of the Bill of Lading will suffice to release the shipment as opposed to Original Bills of Lading which need to be presented for release of the shipment. With Telex release the original documents are surrendered and therefore the copy is sufficient.
Vessel Arrived – Whats Next?
Once the vessel arrives, your clearing agent will now handle all aspects for you. However if you are stuck on any aspect we are always willing you assist you.
