Car shipping through the Nawiliwili Harbor
The Hawaii’s Department of Transportation Harbors Division owns and operates all three piers in the port. All the piers ship and receive general cargo, and containerized cargo such as cars. The piers can accommodate ships of up to 390 meters long. The most convenient method of shipping cars to or from Port of Nawiliwili, Hawaii, is container shipping due to the lack of a RORO dock.
Container car shipping
Even with the rise of RORO car shipping, container shipping is still the most popular option of international car shipping. The shipper will pick up the car from its location and transport it to the port of exit. They will then load the car into a container. Containers are large enough to fit cars and personal items making container shipping the best option when moving to or from Nawiliwili, and the entire Kauai Island.
Customers who are only shipping one car need not pay the full cost of shipping a whole container. Under the Less than Container Load (LCL) option, we offer you the chance to share the container with other customers shipping to the same destination. This option is cheaper as we can ship as many as four vehicles in the 20-foot container, and even more in the 40-foot container.
Safety and convenience are the main advantages of container shipping. Since the container is enclosed, the car is less exposed to weather elements. Container ships don’t wait long at the port as they are loaded with all types of containerized cargo.
What to consider when shipping to Nawiliwili Harbor
The port is a designated port of entry. Foreigners shipping cars to the harbor have to consider the Customs and Border Protection vehicle importation regulations on vehicle importation. Americans shipping cars from the other 49 states of the US need not worry about these regulations. However, do not forget to carry your driver’s license if you plan to drive around the Kauai Island.
