Overseas car shipping through the Port of Chester

The Penn Terminals, which is privately owned, manages the docks at the port of Chester. It is a marine terminal offering stevedoring services. Penn Terminals has facilities that can handle containerized cargo. Therefore, shipping cars to or from port of Chester, Pennsylvania is possible through the use of containers. There is enough space at the terminals for container stripping and stuffing. Container ships from the port are headed for different overseas destinations.

The port also has project cargo handling capabilities. The type of project cargoes we ship there for overseas shipping include locomotives, oversized vehicles, big boats, yachts, and other varied pieces of heavy equipment.

US customs officers are available at the port in case inspection of inbound or outbound cargo is required.

RORO car shipping

The most popular and economical method of overseas car shipping is the roll-on/roll-off method. The vehicles are driven into (rolled-on) the belly of the RORO vessel, and safely secured in a designated space on one of the decks of the ship. On arrival at the destination, the vehicle is driven out (rolled-off) of the ship.

Unfortunately, the port of Chester does not have RORO facilities. Individuals and car dealers in need of RORO international car shipping could use the nearby port of Philadelphia. This port has a Ro/Ro berth and vehicle processing facility for clearing inbound vehicles. This port is only 14.4 miles northeast of Chester.

Choosing a good port of Chester transporter

The most challenging step during overseas shipping is finding a good shipper. There are so many international auto shippers. But unfortunately, not all of them provide great services. Some of the things you should look for include;

  • License and safety ratings. This information is provided on the US DOT website.
  • Ask for a certificate of insurance.
  • Check their online reviews on ratings on BBB, Transport Reviews, Yelp, and other review sites.
  • Ask how many years they have been in the transport industry.
