When transporting a vehicle to Bangladesh, certain requirements and specifications must be met in order for a successful transaction to occur. As with shipments to any other country, there is paperwork to be filled out, documents to send in, and fees to be taken care of.
It is also important to take into account the weather conditions of the country. Bangladesh can get quite warm with humidity, and the low-lying country is prone to experiencing the worst effects that cyclones and flooding have to offer.
Still, there are ways to navigate through such a country to ensure a lucrative transportation business with Bangladesh. It would be beneficial to gain knowledge regarding weather patterns of the country to understand any shipping/exporting delays that may occur.
Bangladesh is quickly growing to be a country that prides itself on its excellent work ethic and foreign business relations. Onshore and offshore gas reserves have created possibilities for lucrative work opportunities in the country. Bangladesh is benefitting from a steady increase of new imported citizens and goods, so their customs and laws regarding moving and shipping/exporting to the country have strengthened and become more efficient in recent years.

Automobile Transportation Methods To Bangladesh
- Roll On/Roll Off/Ro-Ro Shipping: This is the most common method of transportation that the majority of countries choose. This is a method of sea shipping where vehicles are driven on and off carrier ships using their own wheels. Ro-Ro sea vessels are equipped with ramps that aid in the process of driving vehicles on and off the ship. It is the most convenient and cost-effective way of getting your vehicle to Bangladesh.
- Container Car Shipping: This is a popular shipping method choice for those who want to send some of their personal items along with their cars to Bangladesh. The vehicle is either collected at one’s home or is delivered to a depot. Depending on whichever price point is more desirable, customers can choose private containers, which usually run 20ft or 40ft in size, and use the leftover space to pack personal items in, or customers may choose to share containers with someone else’s vehicle. This is a slightly more expensive method, as more safety efforts are guaranteed.
- Car Transportation: This is a land-based, land-locked method of shipping, so it generally takes the greatest amount of time. Cars are insured and routinely inspected throughout the trip, but they must wait for a pending shipping date to Bangladesh before they begin their journey.
Any further questions and concerns you may have can be directed to the U.S. Embassy in Bangladesh.

With our connections and ability to comply with foreign import policies, you won’t come across any obstacles during the process of shipping.

- Large Vehicles

Essentially, any equipment of substantial weight or too large to fit into a 40ft shipping container is considered as heavy equipment or oversized cargo. We’ll inform you during our call whether or not your cargo meets these restrictions and needs to be shipped using one of our transport methods available to this type of cargo.
A1’s Overseas Transport Methods for Oversized Cargo
Contingent on the type of cargo you’re trying to ship to Bangladesh, there are four transport methods available. Some of these shipping methods are less expensive than others and each of them has their own approach to shipping your cargo safely overseas. Below, is a brief description of each method of transport we offer.
- Flat Rack Shipping: This transport method includes securing your cargo to a metal rack or frame. Once the cargo is secured, the entire flat rack is placed onto the ship for transport. If weather conditions seem troublesome, your cargo may be wrapped with plastic shrink wrap for further protection.
- Lift On/Lift Off (LoLo) Shipping: This form of shipping heavy cargo includes using a crane to lift your equipment onto the ship. The crane will also take the equipment off the ship once it arrives to port. Generally, we suggest this transport method to those with inoperable vehicles or crated equipment.
- Roll On/Roll Off (RoRo) Shipping: As the least expensive shipping option, the RoRo method tends to be the most favorable to our customers. This open air shipping service includes rolling your equipment onto and off of the ship. To take advantage of this shipping service, your equipment or vehicle must be motorized and operable.
- Container Shipping: Using a container to ship your cargo will only work if it is small enough to fit into one of our container sizes. The largest container we offer is 40ft. If your cargo can be disassembled, you may very well be able to use this method which provides the absolute greatest protection and security during the transport.
