Car shipping through the port of Bridgeport
Bridgeport is a US Customs and Border Protection designated port of entry. For that reason, you can ship cars through the port. Stevedoring services are provided at the port. There are forklifts that can handle up to 24 tons and a shore crane with a 110-ton lift capacity. The port accommodates vessels more than 50 feet wide.
The most preferred method of international auto shipping is the roll-on/roll-off method as it is cheaper. However, the port does not have RO/RO shipping facilities. Fortunately, the nearby Port of New Haven Harbor, which is only 21 miles from Bridgeport, has Ro/Ro capabilities.
The method of auto shipping available here is the container shipping. This method is slightly more expensive than Ro/Ro. However, you can cut the costs of container shipping by sharing the container with others. The 20-foot container can fit two average size cars. Some shippers fit up to four mid-sized cars in the 40-foot containers. Ask your shipper if they are shipping other cars to your destination to discuss the possibilities of sharing.
