The port has employed close to 7000 people and transports 19 million tons of cargo every year.

Mode of Shipments

Shipping cars to or from Port of Chicago is done in one of two ways; Roll on Roll off (Ro Ro) or Container shipping. Ro-Ro is the standard carrier method where your car is loaded and unloaded off the shipping vessel by simply driving it. As a result, Ro-Ro is lowly priced and is what most clients opt for when shipping standard cars.

When shipping luxury cars that demand added protection, container is a more fitting option. This is an enclosed carrier method that involves securing and bracing your car inside a 20 ft. container before setting sail. While you may have to pay a bit more than you would for Ro-Ro, your car will be safe from harsh weather elements that could end up marginally devaluing your automobile.

Custom requirements

You will be required to have the following documents for the US customs to clear your vehicle for shipping at the port of Chicago

  • Bill of lading. This is a legal document between you and your auto shipper detailing the make and model of your car, the address of your chosen auto shipper, and the year your vehicle was manufactured.
  • A fully completed form HS-7 given by NHTSA.
  • A form of photo identification like your passport/visa.
  • Proof of vehicle ownership, e.g. bill of sale.

Port charges

After your vehicle safely arrives at the port of Chicago, it will be received by the portโ€™s personnel and you will be charged for this service. You will also incur costs of clearing your vehicle with the border services and US customs. All the aforementioned costs are often included in the auto shipperโ€™s quotation if you need a comprehensive breakdown.

Additional port requirements

Your undercarriage should be thoroughly cleaned pursuant to stipulation set by US Department of Agriculture. This is a safety measure meant to curb the transportation of dangerous pests in and out of the Windy City.

Itโ€™s only prudent that you rid your car of any personal belongings seeing as you run the risk of succumbing to theft or damage. Whatโ€™s more, most shippers will not receive a car that holds personal belongings. Keep in mind that the entire contents of your vehicle ought to be declared to customs on entry so the fewer the vehicle contents, the faster the process.
