Shipping to the port of Savannah
American Auto transport companies take cars, ATVs, RVs, boats, motorbikes, and other types of automobiles to the port for exportation to other countries. The port has a customs office that offers a full range of services including vehicle processing. You can hire a car carrier to transport the vehicle to this port. The port is accessible by road and rail. However, most carriers prefer road transport and use either open trucks or enclosed trucks.
Auto carriers who ship cars from overseas can use this port as an entry point. It is a convenient entry point from countries with easy access to the Atlantic Ocean. Ideally, these are countries in Europe, Africa, South America, and the Near East. On arrival to the port, your auto transport company expects you to be present for customs clearance.
Shipping from the port of Savannah
Vehicles arriving from overseas countries to the port have to be transported to their destinations. It is for this reason that hiring an American auto transporter shipping from overseas is a good option. If you hire a foreign-based transporter, you may have to drive from the port, which can be an inconvenient option if the destination of the vehicle is far. Also, this is not a good option for car dealerships importing cars for sale due to the mileage. The other option is to hire another company to ship the vehicles from the port. Avoid this hassle by hiring an American auto transporter that ships from overseas to any location in the USA.
Shipping cars to or from the port of Savannah via container is a good option. The Port is the busiest single container port on the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico. The Garden City Terminal has busy container shipping schedules to any part of the world. The port also has a wide selection of global container shippers. All these factors facilitate efficient delivery of containers to and from the port. This method is a great option if you are moving overseas as you can load other items in the container together with the car.
The Ocean Terminal is the ports dedicated breakbulk facility. RORO vessels dock at this terminal for loading and unloading. RORO vessels are specifically designed to carry wheeled cargo. Transporting vehicles via these vessels is cheap, but slow. It is convenient for car dealerships transporting many vehicles at the same time. But if you are an individual looking for fast delivery of your vehicle, the container shipping method is the way to go.
