Different Methods of Shipping.
There are two different types of shipping methods when shipping to Algeria. These include Roll On/Roll-Off method, or RORO and container shipping.
- Roll On/ Roll Off method: Your vehicle will be driven onto the deck of the ship where it will be safely fastened down for the trip. Once it reaches the port in Algeria, your vehicle will be driven off the deck of the ship and into the hands of customs. This method of shipping is the most commonly selected due to the fact it is easy to do and it is cost effective as well.

With container shipping, you are able to ship your vehicle and load the rest of the container up with your personal household items. There are two sizes to choose from 20 foot and 40 foot.
