Situated in the Upper Nile state in South Sudan, Malakal is a beautiful city located in the district by the same name. It is close to the international borders with Ethiopia and Sudan. It is situated on the banks of White Nile, at the confluence with the Sobat River.
It is about 400 miles from Juba, which is the largest city in South Sudan. Due to poor public transportation, the need for having your own personal vehicle is imminent. Though the roads are paved and some of them are unpaved, it is important that you consider the maintenance costs of the vehicles.

Options of freight shipments.
When you are importing a vehicle in Malakal, it is not only essential to select a safe method but it is equally important to opt for a cost-effective option. Though air shipping is the quickest way to move your vehicle from U.S to South Sudan but it is too expensive and not a viable option. That leaves you with Container shipment and Roll-on/Roll-Off method.
- Roll On/Roll Off (Ro-Ro) Shipping: The most preferred method of auto shipment, RORO provides safe transit even though the vehicle is secured in an open parking bay along with other cars. To ensure there is no damage, you can only ship an empty vehicle, devoid of all air conditioning gas, and no personal items. You are only allowed to keep floor mats, extra keys, 1/4th tank of fuel only.
- Container shipping: If you intend moving your personal items along with the vehicle, container shipping works well. You are allowed to keep all personal items and the vehicle inside the same container. It is then closed and sealed for better protection. Most common sizes of containers include 20 feet or 40 feet. It is more expensive as there are higher checkpoints on safety to be met.
You are required to clear all customs duties and tariffs with the South Sudan Customs Service (SSCS). Only after that, the owner gets the delivery of the vehicle. For further details on shipping to Malakal, contact A1 Auto Transport.
