Methods of Shipment Available.
There are several methods of shipping a vehicle into Cochabamba. These include air shipping, RO/RO shipping and container shipping. RO/RO and container shipping are the most commonly chosen.
RO/RO shipping will allow the transporting of a personal vehicle to cost less compared to the other methods. The vehicle must be empty with the exception of floor mats, a car jack and a spare tire. The vehicle will be rolled onto the ship and off the ship.
